Welcome! If you'd like, you can post more information about the dog you're working with, and we can try to help you out.

First thing with aggression is to get a thorough vet check and make sure there's not a medical reason for it.

As far as books go, Feisty Fido is a good one. Control Unleashed is often said to help, even though I don't think it deals specifically with aggression. It helps dogs focus and calm down, which can be very helpful. Depending on the dog, BAT can be helpful. Some dogs respond really well to it, but some dogs don't/wouldn't. I've heard good things about Click to Calm, but haven't read it myself yet.

Vet checked and clear...my 1st port of call. :D He is 15 months old and a French Bulldog. He seems to have a problem with his own space.
