Question Same sex aggression?

Boys don't like Fred. I'm learning this quite quickly!!! He's 14 months, intact, hormonal boy, and he's a big strong boy at that, so I'm not surprised by this....

The issue I have, is that Fred is starting to posture, stiffen, hackle and grumble at other young or intact males. He hasn't STARTED anything, but I also learnt that he's willing to finish things. I'm not really willing to test him to see whether he would start something.

I need an intervention and I need it NOW. I don't want him learning that this is OK, or that he has to make sure he gets in first with boys. The issue is, that boys really don't like him, so they do seem to get aggro with him... He's responding in kind.

He luuuuuuurves the girls. No issue there


Eta, he's fine with baby boys, old boys, ie non threatening boys. Please tell me he will grow out of this and it's just a phase!!
