I have a Dog now

And jfc it's alot of work. Especially since that the fact he's a rescue, and is he's highly reactive. He hates dogs, old people (for some gosh dang reason), and bikes (not motorbikes, just normal bikes. He'll and jump and shake like Clickers from last of us. I don't want to make my mom put this dog back, simply because I, including the rest of my family can't handle him on walks. Is there any tips, books, videos, or trainers that you'd recommend? I live in fort myers, FL.

Try to be patient with him, he's scared and he's trying to get used to a new environment. My cousin got a rescue dog a few years ago, and we had to avoid her triggers and be patient with her the best we could. It's hard to do, but with time he'll get better and he'll get more comfortable. Helping him face his fears is a good thing to do, it'll take time, but it'll be worth it. Giving up early is just wasting a wonderful life with that dog, and a waste of your time.

I have a few more tips but idk if they'd help. Did he come from an abusive household? Cuz I have a lot of tips for that, since I helped my cousin with her rescue who came from an abusive household.

the 2 dogs I have are a little strange the first one if someone passes in front of my house she runs and barks and practically tries to rip your leg off lol
the other one had an accident when a car ran over one of her legs and now she walks on three legs, the difference is that she's not as ferocious as the other xD

Ya'll have some cool dogs while I have a huge ass dog (idk what the breed is lol), he likes to wake me up in the morning by LITERALLY JUMPING ONTO MY BED, licking me, and sniffing me until I wake up. Oh, and he even sleeps beside me on my bed sometimes. lol.
