my 3 year old husky has had moderate training by myself. basic stuff, like sit, stay, down etc. but hes always been a little brat (which ive read most huskies are). listens to me only when he wants to, which is about 80% of the time. he was socialized as a puppy and about the first 2 years of his life. did well at the dog park, maybe played a little too rough for some people but was never aggressive towards other dogs. also he was raised around my girlfriends 2 small dogs, and has never been aggressive towards them, i mean he would nip at them every once in a while but it wasn't out of aggression, he was just trying to play. but recently my girlfriend and i moved into our own apartment and he hasn't been able to run around as much as he used to. so when i take him out hes extra rambunctious. whenever he sees another dog he gets really excited and wants to start playing. at that point he doesn't listen to a word i say. but recently hes been aggressive to smaller dogs.
so far since we've live here he has bitten 2 dogs. first time some lady was walking her pug off of the leash and i came around the corner and her dog started running at my dog barking and growling. i didn't see if her dog tried to bite my dog, but by the way it was barking i wouldn't be surprised if it did. but all i saw was her dogs face in my dogs mouth. i had to pry my dogs mouth open to get the other dog free.
second time happened literally about 20 minutes ago. i was taking him out to do his thing and was walking him around. we ended up walking by the dog park that they have in my complex. this guys small 5-10lb dog squeezed under the fence and started barking and running at my dog. with what happened before i tried to pull my dog back but i wasn't fast enough. once again the dog ended up in my dogs mouth, and once again i had to pry his mouth open.
what i noticed though, is that he never growls and when he bites them he doesn't tear as if he was fighting. he just bites down and that's it. i don't know what to do with him. right now i cant afford professional training but i also cant afford a lawsuit. even though in these incidents i wasn't at fault. but im worried one day hes going to get me sued.
any help and advice would be appreciated. and please, no responses on me being a horrible owner for keeping a husky in an apartment, im well aware of the attention they require. he has a german shepherd to keep him company and i work days and my girlfriend works evenings most of the time. so most of the time someone is home with him and i take running with me every other day. so no lectures....
