Issues of aggression must be dealt with in-person by a professional trainer. Look for an all-positive trainer in your area. The all-positive part is very important for deaf dogs, so make sure the trainer you pick is all-positive.

Also, seek someone who is experienced in aggression issues. Not all trainers deal with aggressive behaviors.

Don't get advice on the topic via the internet. Aggression is tricky to diagnois, and you'll want a pro doing it. It could even be that what you think is aggression is play. Some dogs sound like they're killing eachother when they play. A good trainer can easily tell the difference, and can tell the difference between the many types of true aggressions that exist. I am a professional trainer, but I wouldn't begin to diagnois aggression without watching the dog in action.

Don't wait though. Get searching for a trainer now.

Good luck.
