Springers being aggressive to other dogs

by Sarah

We have two 4 year old mail springers. They are littermates. They can be very naughty when we are out and about - they pull on the lead (which we manage with a halty) but they hate other dogs - they pull to get to other dogs and bark.

We are sensible with them and always walk them on a lead and give other dogs a wide berth but on the rare occasion they get off the leaf it is a bit of a worry.

They are good at home (well always looking at what they can steal but apart from that they are good)

As they are littermates they have a pack mentality, which can come accross nasty to other dogs and their owners

I can contacted a behaviourist and I'm going to contact a trained to come and watch then to advise us. I'm just wondering if anyone had any advice or has experienced this.
