If anyone can offer advice, I would appreciate it. I got my boxer at 7 weeks. He is now almost 8.5 months. Hes absolutely great with my wife and I, but sometimes he is very aggressive towards strangers, especially children. He has never bitten anyone, but seems to get about as close to biting as he can, without actually doing it. I am especially worried about his aggressiveness towards children. At the same time, he is sometimes extremely timid and shy around other dogs, even ones one third his size.
Since he was very young, I have taken him to obediance school, and also to puppy socialization classes. This has helped some, but the problems still exist and they are serious. Im beginning to feel that his temperment may be flawed, and this may not be correctable. He is not fixed.
Has anyone had similar problems? Does anyone have any suggestion? Thanks a lot!
