I have a 3 year old black lab that has had fear aggression

Customer Question

I have a 3 year old black lab that has had fear aggression since he was a puppy. We have talked with our vet, hired trainers and kenneled him at one that specializes in labs. Nothing seems to make any difference. He rubs very hard with his head against hard surfaces and doesn't like anyone reaching towards him. Could there be some sort of sensory problem?

What do you mean he rubs his head on hard surfaces, how often does he do this?

What have you tried to get him used to strangers?

Have you had this dog since a puppy and if so how often daily did you train for the fear?

What did your trainers tell you to do?

Do you know where this puppy came from originally?
