Aggressive Dog Training and Behavioural Adjustments

Aggression Control

Aggressive Dog TrainingAggression can present in several ways, including: growling, a stiffening of posture, lunging, barking, and snapping or biting – it can also be directed at people or at other dogs. Such signs of aggression reflect a breakdown in the communication relationship between dog and owner.

Reasons Why Dogs Exhibit Aggressive Behaviour

  • Territorial aggression – Your dog defends your home or its space from people they are not familiar with.
  • Protective aggression – Your dog tries to protect a person, another dog of their pack, or their puppies and becomes hostile towards anyone who approaches them.
  • Possessive aggression – They try to protect anything of value to them, including their toys, food, bones, and more.
  • Fear aggression – Although they may retreat when frightened, your dog may attack when they feel threatened or cornered.
  • Defensive aggression – This is similar to aggression due to fear. However, your dog may choose to attack without trying to retreat.
  • Social aggression – If your dog does not socialize with other dogs, they may act out aggressively in their presence.
  • Aggression due to frustration – Your dog may exhibit aggression if they are restricted using a leash or constrained in a place.
  • Redirected aggression – This type of aggression is often expressed on a person who tries to break up a dog fight.
  • Aggression due to pain – When your dog is in pain because of an injury or disease, they may act aggressively.
  • Sex-related aggression – Dogs may exhibit aggressive tendencies when vying for the attention of their mate.
  • Predatory aggression – When your dog acts aggressively without warning, especially when chasing animals such as squirrels, it can become dangerous.
