Im wondering if there is a diff. way of training my dog to be nicer to other dogs and people other than neutering (we cant afford that at the moment). when he was a puppy he loved to go to the dog park and run around with the other dogs but now if we get close to it he will start going crazy in the car and its nearly impossible to get him in the fence-line. and once there he will try to fight whatever dog is there. its very embarrassing and frustrating. We cant even walk around the block during the day with him cuz he will try to go towards other houses with dogs/people on the sidewalk. we have to do it at night usually after 9 p.m. that way no one or anything is out!! any ideas would be awesome and helpfulAnswer Question

The first thing i would do is look for a low cost spay/neuter clinic and get him snipped. Some places will even do it for free if yo qualify. If this was my dog i would put a Gentle leader head halteron him.Â Â Stay away from Haltis they do not fit the dog right and if they get it off their nose the whole thing comes off where if they do this with the Gentle leader it is still secure around the neck. This will help to control the lunging and just get him in control in general.Â Â I would look at how YOU react when you see people or other dogs.Â
