If you would like more information on how to cope with aggressive dog behavior, and what you can do about it, then this guide will show you. Specifically, I'm going to discuss why your dog is becoming aggressive, the main types of aggression you're likely to see, and some valuable tips for training an aggressive dog. By the time you've finished reading this article, you'll have a better understanding of why your dog is aggressive, and what you can do to fix this problem.
Firstly, we are going to discuss why your dog is behaving aggressively. In most cases of dog aggression, there are reasons for these behavior.
For example – if you have had your dog since he was a puppy and maybe his parents were aggressive dogs. I recommend you always research the breed before purchasing because you do not want to bring a breed of dog in your home which is known to have aggressive traits.
Another reason why your dog is displaying aggressive dog behavior is because your dog feels threaten by another dog or person.
The next thing we are going to talk about is the different kinds of aggressive behavior, and how you can spot them. There are two main kinds of aggressive dog behavior.
Here is what you should look for so you can see the differences between the two types of aggression.
The first (and most common) form of aggression is what many owners call every day aggression. This type of aggression can happen often. This isn't a major problem compared to some other potential scenarios, but you should still monitor this behavior to ensure it doesn't become worse. The main indicators of this type of aggression are intense staring, growling and barking. The best way to fix this type of aggression is with basic obedience training.
The second kind of aggressive behavior can be more of a problem, and you should try to fix this quickly, by seeking the help of a professional dog trainer. This aggressive behavior can become dangerous to you, your dog and other around your dog if it gets out of control.
The main signs you should tyr to notice are staring, nipping, baring teeth, snaring and biting. If this aggressive behavior is not corrected then it can lead to physical aggression such as fighting, and trying to bite.
With aggressive behavior, I would recommend you seek professional who specialises in aggressive dog training to help correct this behavior.
You can find books, cds and video lessons which can show you the basics of obedience training which can help you. If you have a puppy, you should start training as soon as possible before it gets too late and becomes a habit, which can be hard to break.
Here are some useful tips to use when you are training your dog.
1. Remember to never leave your dog alone with your children during this training.
2. Do not keep your dog tied up outside, as this will only make the aggressive behavior worse.
3. Do not abuse or tease your dog or let anyone else do it, as this too will make the behavior worse.
You need to learn the warning signs of aggression before the aggressive behavior appears as this will be much easier for you and your dog when it comes to dealing with this behavior.
In this article I have talked about reasons why your dog is aggressive, tips on training, and the two different types of aggression. You now know what you can to do fix this aggression before it becomes too much to handle.
