There is no DNA test currently for Hovawarts, although there are tests for the majority of popular breeds, the DNA tests for rare breeds have not been attenuated yet. Well socialized Hovawarts are not typically aggressive with other dogs. If aggressive behavior is being exhibited then you need to work on socializing the dog. One thing that is very common for people to do in a stressful situation with a dog, is to "calm" him down by petting. This in fact encourages the bad behavior, petting is a sign that he is doing something right. You need to firmly reprimand the dog, and make him leave you. Do not offer invectives as "it's alright". It is not alright, and poor behavior not tolerated.
