Hi everyone! I have three English mastiffs and while two of them are well socialized with people, I have one that has gotten aggressive towards strangers. A little back story to this- I have a male (3yo), a female (5yo) and one of their pups (2yo). The female and the younger male are fine with people. After my female became pregnant the sire became, for lack of a better explanation, protective of her and the family. He has gotten worse after the pups arrived. I am very wary of him when other people visit and don't have friends over often due to him. I am not sure how to go about trying to change this behavior. Any suggestions?
More details would help - what does he do when people arrive, as well as a detailed (the longer the better!) schedule of your average day. I hope we can help you - I dogsit for a 2 yo Mastiff (220 pounds!) and I can only imagine having three!
