never allow your dog to be on bed or furniture, this only make them to assume that they had the same status as the owner...

[In reply to]
u definately need to make an effort to strengthen the bond between u and sparco...
start off by hand feeding him, this is a way to build trust to the owner.... dogs will not bite the hand which feeds them..
only let him get access to outdoor on leash, even in your own backyard....
during times when u need to hold on to him, don't juz grab his collar, this will only provoke him, place leash at handy places and make use of it...snap a leash on the collar is easier n safer for u to get him under control....
when u are not around, keep your dog indoor or in crate, do not let him has fun playing around the yard on his own... when you are back, bring him out for potty and then spend quality time feeding or playing with him, like throwing a ball for them to chase can make them happy...... this make him think that you are the source of fun n happiness in his life...n he will be anticipating your arrival home
n if u wanna punish your dog for misbehaviour, never hit them, even using a roll use newspaper... if u wan your dog to respect u, u have to respect them too
getting him neuter may n may not help with aggressive issue, but it definately help to curb his desire of going out n looking for mates...
if this didn't manage to improve, the last solution might be to use an electric collar...
