6 month old barking
Hello everyone I wanted to get some advice for my about to be 6 month old male german shepherd puppy. I got him at 8 weeks old and would bring him all over the place and we do attend group dog training classes usually we are able to attend 2 - 3 a week through our training facilities program. He has this problem that when people are approaching head on or he sees them in the distance he starts to bark. He has been fine when people pet his back when he walks by and wont turn around and bark so he seems comfortable with this. I have never had him lunge but I believe he is barking out of some fear and insecurity and wanted some advice on how to approach this problem. I dont want this problem to progress and end up turning into aggression so i will definitely take any advice I can get. Thank you everyone!
