A good friend of mine called yesterday and announced that he took in an approximately 8 month old, 70 pound, shepard x akita mix pup 3 days ago. He said the pup is extremely fearful in many situations and that it is so fearfully aggressive to people (including his wife) that he has had to muzzle it around people other than himself. I live about four hours away so have been unable to evaluate the dog myself, but told him I would try to seek out a qualified trainer in his area that could evaluate the dog so a decision could be made on whether or not the dog is an OK choice for him as a pet. He is an experienced large dog owner, but is an older gentleman and has no knowledge on working with a fear aggressive dog. He also is a web designer and needs a dog who can handle being around people as he works from home and often times has clients whom visit. If anyone could recommend a qualified trainer in the Bay Area of California (he lives in Concord) I would be very appreciative. Thank you in advance!
