Well I would look up Victoria Stillwell she is a wonderful dog trainer. Also try clicker treat training a dog trainer can tell you what that is and having no leash is never an option with any dog use a head collar to keep better control of him when you are training him and walking him. If you really have no choice but to find him a new home do it through a rescue such as a shepard rescue or maybe you can get him a home so that he can become a k-9 unit hope this helps good luck!
