Your use of the phrase “attack mode” is pretty concerning, especially given the size of your pooch.
Anytime you’re faced with aggression issues, you will really need to work with a canine behaviorist — and the sooner the better.
I’m not sure if I completely understand the “fly swatter” comments, but just to be clear: Don’t hit your dog with a fly swatter — that’ll only exacerbate any fear or frustration he’s feeling and damage the trust between the two of you.
Best of luck!
