Tough to walk away from aggressive dog like that for him. As has been said get him to focus on you and not the other dog. If a treat or tug works great but you need to be prepared for it not to be enough. My year and half male has looked for a fight since he was five months. He was breed and I am training him in Sch. so I don't have a problem with that BUT I need to be able to control that. He has now learned to ignore other dogs for the most part. A pinch helps but can, with some dogs, increase agitation and aggression. You don't need to have a pinch to get his attention. A fur saver can as well just ask my male!LOL When you come to an aggressive dog or anything you want ignored ask for focused on you. Try the treats and walk away. You could wave a ribeye at Auron if another dog is growling at him and he would ignore it. In his case I just give the foos or heal command and turn away from the distraction keeping a short and tight grip on the lead. No screaming or big production just foos, turn and go. Everything from his neck up is coming with me. His choice as to how he wants it. If he struggles I repeat the command and make another turn but never toward the distraction. Try not to make a big production of it but depending on the dog, age, ext he may need to be snatched on pretty good to make him understand he must comply. At yours age I would think just turn and go. When he does turn without fighting and gives focus by All MEANS reward and praise him.
