Yeah, dogs can learn to be aggressive towards other dogs after an attack. Its worth remembering too that he's at that age where his natural inborn aggression would start showing anyway. You're going to need to manage him for awhile while you work on it. Considering what happened, it would probably be smart to start researching " reactivity " as a starting point. Even if he's not an all around " reactive " dog the principles of how to work on it should be about the same. You're gonna want to get a handle on it now before it gets worse.
No, dont use an ecollar- liable to make things worse. Too much to go wrong if you dont know what youre doing. Finding a trainer experienced with stronger willed breeds is probably your best bet. For shepherds at least the reactivity is pretty common, so a trainer experienced with these breeds should have seen this before and should be able to give you a plan of action.
