Hello All, I am new to the site/forum. I bought a Cane Corso at the start of the pandemic just before everything went into lock-down. Milo is my second Corso. My first Coco passed in Dec 2020. Anyway the problem I have is that because of the lock down I did not get to socialize him. For the first two months I had him, based on vets recommendation I didn't take him on walks until he received his shots. And then after receiving his shots I would keep my distance from other walkers and their pets due to CDC/health recommendations. Because of that my guy @12mos, is very wary of strangers and views everyone and almost everything as a threat and barks and sometime threatens to lunge. I wanted to know if any one has some good strategies I could employ to bring his energy down so he can see that interaction is normal and OK. He has basic obedience but once he zeroes in on something his obedience goes out the window. Needless to say I didn't have this issue with my previous as she grew up knowing that human-to-human interaction was OK and that dog-to-dog interaction was OK ( when she felt like it), lol. I really want to be able to take Milo on family hikes but my kids and wife feel embarrassed when he is acting up so it becomes, either we go with you or he goes with you! Any advice would be welcome!
