Socialization?
Our dog snarls and barks at anybody that's not me or my husband, and I'm concerned that he might bite somebody.  I think that his behavior is fear-driven rather than aggression.  I'd like to try to socialize him a little better, but I'm not sure where to begin.

He needs adult OBEDIENCE TRAINING, then adult SOCIALIZATION TRAINING.  this can be done with a good trainer or training class.  You may also want to check locally for a certified animal behavior therapist.  DO NOT go to anyone using harsh dominance techniques.  They have been popularized by Cesar Milan, but are seriously frowned upon by those veterinarians and PhD specialists who have studied animal behavior for a lifetime.
