My dog is only aggressive towards certain people. He doesn't mind the vet or some random strangers at the park or at the stores. Other times he goes ballistic . He barks and growls like something is really wrong. He almost bit my aunts ex husband (not that anyone could blame him).
What is up with my dog? WHat can I do to help him?

Did the people do anything to provoke him? Anything that annoys him such as being touched a certain way?

Cookie is right. Is there something similar about all the people he's gotten aggressive with? Are they trying to pet him on the head, etc.
Is Quincy a rescue? Did he have an abusive history where he might be equating these particular people with his abuser? Could be a lot of things.
I've noticed that it takes longer for Buddie to warm up to a man than it does for a woman. We've had her since she was 8 weeks and she adores her Daddy, so I'm not sure why.
