Male Australian Shepherd Aggressive Towards Strangers

by Stacey
(Simi Valley, CA)


I have a 16 month male Aussie. Since he was about 9 months he has became aggressive towards strangers. Either coming into my home or in public.

Is there anything I could do to curb this behavior? I tried to socialize him when he was young, but one day he just decided that he didn't like strangers. I would love to be able to take him to parks and the beach but am afraid to. Any ideas for me?
