    If you want to keep him, you might consider preventing him from getting access to the front fence. Maybe make a second fence further back so he can't get there. I think legally you have to allow people safe access to your front door, eg the police, firemen, meter readers etc.

    You may also want to consider muzzling him while you're out - to minimize the chance of him being able to do serious damage - but remember he can still hurt small dogs by stomping on them and whacking them with the muzzle.

    But you really want to get some help to learn how to re-train him to be more well behaved and calmer.

    I've seen these two trainers recommended for the ACT area but I don't have any personal experience with either of them. If they can't help with your specific problem, ask them to recommend someone else they respect.

    Ps if you do get a muzzle, remember to train him to accept it and be pleased to see it before you ask him to wear it outside the home. Lots of really yummy treats for putting his face in it.

    These guys give you written training instructions for getting your dog to accept the muzzle.

    I've seen this one on a friends dog. The dog didn't like it much but it did stop her from eating other dogs and also stopped most little dog owners from letting their dogs approach in the first place, making for a much calmer walk.

    I had a situation here with barking through the fence at a neighbours dog.
    I have put up weed mat (off a long roll) over the dogwire fence so they cannot see each other.

    It really has worked for us, however it depends on the dogs.
    Do you think that your boy does not feel SAFE in his own yard?

    I will post a pic later tonight. Back to the saltmines for now..
