I agree with the posts suggesting the use of clothes. I know from personal experience I get (unwanted)attention because of the way my dog looks etc. Brandi is a fluffy ish 30 pound Carolina Dog mix(?). Though she is double coated she lives indoors and her undercoat normally comes out so she sometimes wears a sweater, along with the fact she has a rain coat which I have pictures of on her profile, a pumpkin costume and a nice bling collar she attracts attention from people that think they can pet her. Brandi is a D.I.N.O. see dogs in need of space here http://dogsinneedofspace.com/about/ this is due to her distrust of strangers, and while she is never mean or aggressive toward anyone she would really LOVE if nobody would pet her. People think that just because she politely sits there trying to duck away from them that she welcomes being pet. I assure you she doesn't and no one respects that, people come to the house and I always have to tell people to back off because they are attempting to pet her and they make her uncomfortable.
Anyways back to the point, people think that because she is a good girl and will let me dress her in stupid costumes etc. that she is ok with pets, but really she is ok with their dog and would rather that they didn't exist. People comment and definitely notice if your dog is wearing something cute. So trust me when I say people will definitely be less afraid and if that is what you are going for. Then have her wear something cute, be well behaved, and just her lovable self. For me and Brandi the effect is opposite of what WE want, what we want is for doggies to play with us and for their owners to take a hike. laugh out loudbig laugh

@Agusta I am normally reluctant to say anything to people except when it comes to dogs as I am 18 now no one has the right to try and pull the you are a kid what do you know stuff because the LAW SAYS I AM AN ADULT. And I will now flip on any owner I see doing that and at Sarah if I was with you I would have beat that person up with MY leash give em a taste of their own medicine. Hymph sorry I just got all violent it's just that kinda stuff makes me reeeeal mad, so made I just about loose it.

I'm stupid I just got rid of what I wrote frown my point in showing you k9-1 was basically for information on another style of dog training (the style being foundation style dog training) while not all aspects of the site are free you can have full access to their private training course if you enter your email under join now thing. You can also freely access the forum for free http://www.selfhelpdogtraining.com/forums/ and there is a section dedicated to aggression one of their trainers might get back to you even I don't know the exact time line of when though https://www.facebook.com/selfhelpdogtraining this is their facebook page the youtube links I gave you is because people as I said only wanted me to really link t you "legit" trainers so I showed you them who as I tried to explain have had success with aggressive dogs and they do have videos on training aggressive dogs NOT SAYING DO WHAT THEY DO since we don't want any accidents but you can watch some of their videos on aggressive dogs and on muzzle training to see what a trainer might possibly? do with Atlas so basically video=info about types of training someone could potentially use

I'm sorry I always wind up having the longest most unnecessarily long explanations on my posts

http://www.apdt.com/petowners/ts/ Association of Pet Dog trainers has a trainer search where if you go under advance search you can specify what state and what the trainer needs to be versed in etc. if they don't have one in the part of the state you live in just search under your state without city name
and I think under every trainer they give you (from what I am looking at now) is a link to their website and such
Good luck!

might have been a dummy and left out Casper didn't get neutered so K9-1 didn't help him because it was against policy since he wasn't willing to neuter the dog to get the help offered it must not have been a big enough deal to him

oh and as Sequoyah mentioned Baskerville muzzles are treat friendly so I'm in no way saying you should use the muzzle k9-1 uses or even Baskerville just making it a point to reinforce the idea that Baskerville can be used with treats

ONCE AGAIN forgot to mention k9-1's staff includes (note this isn't all the info listed on them)
Teresa who has a Bachelors degree in Veterinary Science from Pace University, is an experienced Licensed Veterinary technician, life time student of continued education, and certified Foundation Style Dog Trainer with over 10 years of educating puppy and dog owners about all aspects of dog training, behavior, husbandry, and health concerns.

Nathaniel Bonilla who has been working as a professional trainer for over 10 years.

Some additional information and before I start let me say I'm not sure where this facility is located i'm more brining them up for information purposes K9-1 Specialized dog training was featured in It’s Me or the Dog in the episode featuring featuring Eric and his Presa Canario Caspar more info featured here http://positively.com/2011/04/21/nevermind-the-bollocks/ Background: "Caspar came from a breeder of Presa Canarios in California and was shipped to Eric in New York State when the pup was eight weeks old. Eric wanted to own a big powerful dog and was even more excited at the prospect of training that dog for protection, as encouraged by the breeder. He also wanted to use Caspar as a stud dog – a good way, he had been told, of bringing in some extra cash. Unfortunately for Eric, as Caspar grew, he began exhibiting behavior that was troublesome, including marking in the house, destructive chewing, lunging and barking at other dogs on walks and showing fear aggression to people when they came into his home." K9-1 was going to step in to help him if he agreed to neuter his dog well he didn't and he wound up biting someone and a judge is trying to force him to get him neutered
Anyway aside from that this is their homepage http://www.selfhelpdogtraining.com/ they practice foundation style dog training they also train dogs to be protection dogs but they also do aggression rehabilitation which is mainly why foundation style dog training was created.
this is their stance on alpha rolling http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y20K-przul4&feature=plcp and another on prong collars http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N_t4kFz8bg&feature=plcp and also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0X6A4oyaB8&feature=plcp this is part 4 of an aggression rehabilitation series they have part 3 deals with muzzle training(they have a separate muzzle training video as well). They also have a separate video on flooding and on a side note everything they use on dogs they first try on themselves including prong collar which they let the dog hold the leash as shown in one of the videos I listed

AS I SAID LET ME BE THE FIRST TO SAY I POST THIS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES I am not advocating anyone try this to fix a dog's problems. But they might be able to give the OP information the even have a question forum on their site soo
oh and they have done aggression rehabilitation they have dogs listed on the site that they rehabilitated dogs that were going to be put down. they also have rehabilitation videos you can watch. they deal with all sorts of strong breeds as they do protection training with no specific breed of dog. And they don't believe you should ever have to yell at your dog they teach in a way that you only ever have to speak at a normal tone for the dog to listen( not through cruel means of course) just basically it's a kind of your dog pays attention to you kinda thing (what I said right there probably didn't make sense sorry)
To the OP hope this helps you in your quest for information! hug

I for one apologize to the OP if I was coming off as rude. I did my very best to not st anything and only make comments based on what the OP has directly asked for, once again I realize people have called me out for what they thought was advice that I was directing them to use. I wasn't or at least I wasn't trying to as the OP stated they wanted information so I was just giving examples of information that is out there.

On that note I only responded to an accusation? (I don't know whatever you wish to call it) because I felt like my words were being taken the wrong way and I didn't wish for the OP to take what I said the wrong way which could result in problems that could be avoided.
Once again I'm sorry if right now I sound as if I am trying to pick a fight or as if I took on a higher then thou mindset because I surely haven't tried too

After that giant ramble I would like to say thanks to the OP for making things clear big hug and GOOD LUCK WITH ATLAS hug
