I have a 2-year-old Doberman named Max who has been a loving and loyal pet to me for the past year. However, recently he has been displaying signs of aggression towards me and strangers alike. I am very concerned about his behavior and want to know what I can do to address this issue.
Max has never been aggressive before, but his behavior has changed in the past couple of weeks. He growls and barks at me when I try to pet him, and he has even bitten me a few times. He has also lunged at strangers who come to my house.
I want to understand why Max is behaving this way and how I can correct his behavior. I don't want to give up on him, but I also don't want anyone to get hurt. Any advice or tips on what I could do in this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
