Anger towards other dogs.
Hey everybody. I recently got my GSD (on Friday), so he's still quite new (9 weeks old). In our many, many attempts at socialization with other dogs, all he has done is bark and nip the other dog (or try to) in the face. I've been speaking with a bunch of my friends, and their dogs were really quite easy to socialize at young ages, as they'd let other dogs smell him, play, etc.
Dexter (my pup) won't have any of it.
I was just wondering if it's normal to be this afraid of dogs at this age? In the meantime, I'm going to continue with my efforts, and hope for the best.
Any advice? What has worked for you guys?
