Thank you so much for all of the information everyone. We are going to training class tomorrow at 11am and will be going every week for 10 weeks. Between the advice here, my own research and the training, hopefully we can nip this in the bud and make a good dog out of this pup.
I am so surprised at the temperament of this dog but we just did not have the extra $1000 to go to a high end breeder. I have heard it is very rare for this breed to bark, growl or bite.
