Aggressive behavior

Hello my name is Joe.
I have a year old Boston male, that gets really agressive at the dog park with other dogs.
They are usually larger dogs.
As soon as they get close his back hair stands up and he jumps up as to push them away with his face.
But he gets close the their face.
Im worried one day a dog will attack.
I always grab him when he does it.
Any suggetstions?

He's a Boston
by: Joel

Our boy Floyd had the same problem you describe. You should have seen him locked on to the lip of a Bull Mastiff "No Fear". Our current boy Newton started down the same path so we socialized him in a small dog specific area -- he learned how to interact with other dogs sans the in your face aggression. Took him to big dog areas in off hours so he had one on one time. He did well one on one with out the pack type inter action and alpha fight. He is now a well socialize member of the of the dog park. Hope this helps.

Aggressive Boston
by: Steff

I have the same problem with my Lilly. She is extremely aggressive and barking at any dog (any size). It is to the point where she cannot go to the park with us or on walks around the neighborhood. I don't know what to do! It seems to just be getting worse!
