If you want to understand how to stop dog aggression let me start by asking you two rhetorical questions!

Once you have convinced your dog that you are the pack leader outside then upon reaching the point where he usually is aggressive you will find that he will actually start to take notice of how you are behaving! Then your dog will probably continue to ignore what you are doing at this point forever, if you aren’t.
