Thank you for your encouragement!
I forgott to ad that he is nowadays much better. You can now pet him quite nicely if you do it without too much a hush and making it “a big deal”. He has growled a lot more towards my husband but it redused a lot after he read the triangle. He sometimes growles more to me now (defensively most of them time). But we try to avoid situations where he can show his aggression and make sure that he can´t get nothing for free.
And he wants to sosialize with us more, though most of the time there is avoidance. I don´t fear that he will bite me even when it´s question about food or when I put him to lie down. But he has snapped my husband and there´s not a big step for really biting. A veterinary behaviorist described it as a “conflict aggression” (hasn´t seen the dog in real life).
But altough things have gone better, we still have big problems.
