My last male came up the leash at me. It was scary. But we got it sorted.
It sounds like it's a bit if dominance and resource guarding all wrapped into one. He had a high value "treat" and you progressively got more physical trying to take it, so he escalated as well.
I do think this is fixable. It was in my case. Which was different. My boy decided to come up the leash at me during obedience exercises, if I gave a correction at all he came at me. But in the end, he was the best dog ever. It was a leadership issue. I messed up his foundation and ended up confusing him with badly timed and poor corrections. Lesson learned.

|Steve Strom||So maybe you got a little angry along with going harder? Your emotion along with the physical correction can give him a whole different perception of it. I'm just guessing too K9Kane, but I think with the help of a good trainer working with you as far as overall obedience, it wont end up being a big deal.|

|K9Kane||I have always trained him with toys. No food drive whatsoever. This wasn't a training situation though, like I said, this was him doing something he's not supposed to do and he got corrected for it after he refused to do it. The end. I was looking to talk to people that have been in a similar situation, nto "if that was my dog he'd be PTS." PRetty harsh, and probably coming from someone who got their dog from the shelter or guy dwon the street.|
