Born 11/20/2014. I brought him home on 1/1/2015. He is a 50/50 lab and poodle mix. Very active for age. He is a beautiful, healthy dog weighing in at approx 75 pounds. He was professionally trained when under a year. He knows various commands and learns quickly. I believe he needs more people and dog socialization. When walking him on leash he has begun to bark and lunge toward dogs. Since I am not strong enough, I have been unable to hold the leash. He runs at the dog and person while barking and jumping. Scaring them and me. I have quit walking him— and just play with him in my backyard and make sure he is always contained in the yard. He needs a new owner that is a strong person with ability to become the alpha and train him to behave properly— when around people and on a leash— which I have not been able to do, obviously. When I am at home with him he is very sweet. However, he runs barking when someone rings the Doorbell and becomes very excited. I usually put him in the garage before letting people in so he can calm down.
