My German Sheppard Husky mix has never liked kids 12yr and under. Why? He's aggressively barked at them from his 1st meeting. Anyone have solution? He's so protective, playful, and intelligent but, aggressively barks at children

Clearly your dog has had some very unpleasant encounters with a young child. I'd simply be aware of the problem and use a muzzle and harness lead when he is going to be exposed to the age group that upsets him. I'd also do everything I could to keep him apart from the age group, including crating him in a quiet room when children of that age are visitors.


I'd consider looking into training classes to socialise him to this age group if the above isn't going to be a long-term solve for you - no dog is too old or too young to benefit from quality training.
