      1 year old male lab agressive to submissive dogs

      hi, I have 3 Labradors. my oldest haylee. she'll be 3 in august and a female, ajax a male turned 2 in February and koda a male he turned 1 in January,
      they all are fixed. now the trouble is with my youngest koda. I always did know he had some "male traits" as a puppy. he would always pee on top of my other dogs pee in the yard. so I thought neutering him young "5 months" would rectify that issue which he still continues to do. no big deal. now my issue I have is say at the dog park, koda is A) very jealous when other dogs play with haylee my female. but instead of getting angry he starts to play extremely rough with haylee by the neck. A main concern I have is also I can see it in him when its coming with his body language. he for some reason gets aggressive with submissive dogs. enough where he goes after them and makes them get on there backs. It really seems/sounds extremely violent. I do here him growling as well before it all happens.

      Koda also has growled at my other two only under certain circumstances. in example if he is sleeping and my other two get close to him he will let out a growl. but he has never go after my other two.

      Koda seems to do ok with more dominate dogs and just doesn't make any sense? and its like a switch. he goes from fine to being annoyed with submissive dogs. I haven't found any rhyme or reason for it. just see it in his body language when it starts happening. He also has a behavioral issue with separation anxiety with me or say if one of my other two dogs leaves the house.

      any suggestions???

      Hello...Has your dog had any formal Obedience training? If not, my advice to you would be to get him enrolled in a good Obedience class asap, before these behaviors escalate.

      He needs to know his place within his "pack". Many times if a dog is confused as to here his place is, he will take the dominate role. He needs training badly.

      Hopefully, others will chime in here for you.

      No training besides me and normal commands. I do think he is pretty confused on the whole situation.

      I have a dog with dog-aggression issues and I took it seriously enough to go to a behaviorist and work on that with her. It sounds like your dog is much more aggressive than mine was.

      You should absolutely start some obedience training and set high standards for his behavior. Find a class if possible. Get a teacher. What worked for your other dogs is not adequate for Koda.
