Our 5 year old Lab/Rott mix has all of a sudden being aggressive towards us??? Help!

We adopted another dog about a year ago an he has been great with him for the most part but our smaller dog picks on him sometimes. When he gets nervous he growls and jumps at us, acting like he's going to bite us. He also does this when we try to get him to do something he doesn't want to do, such as, get off of the bed. He does this with our guests and it very territorial as well. Any suggestions as to how we can correct this behavior?

I would get a trainer or behaviorist to help you. Unless anyone sees the sequence of events leading up to the aggression, then they can't really help. Rotti's are very strong willed dogs and they need strong owners. Good Luck with him.
