Dog to Dog Aggression or Dog to Human Aggression - There is Help for your Aggressive Dog!


How do you know if you have a aggressive dog problem?


Dog aggression is almost always a normal behavior and is usually based on fear.  We shouldn’t look at aggressive behavior as being nasty or wrong. Abnormal canine behavior is often over diagnosed.  But when aggressive behavior starts to interfere with the relationship between the dog and the owner, other people, or other animals then it becomes problem that has to be addressed.  Often when this happens most dogs with behavior problems are not just acting out or misbehaving, they are not normal. 

There could be many underlying issues causing your dog’s aggressive/reactive behavior, under socialization when your dog was very young, a traumatic event, the wrong kind of training (punishment based) most often makes the problem much worse.  Unfortunately in most cases aggression escalates as the dog ages.  While it may be natural to make excuses for your dog’s behavior, all dogs are capable of causing serious harm.  The sooner you get help for your dogs aggression the easier and sooner your dog can start to live a happy healthy more harmonious life with you and the rest of the world.

We will start out by addressing the problem right away by a private one on one consultation.  We will discuss management strategies while we are working with you and your dog so everyone is safe and your dog is not practicing his or her aggressive behavior. I use only positive based training methods to achieve great results, I do not use shock collars, prong collars, choke chains or scare tactics as this can only make your dog worse.  So often with punishment based training methods the behavior only gets suppressed only to resurface later on and usually much worse.  I have worked with many aggressive dogs with dog to dog aggression, dog to human aggression, food aggression and many other not so nice behavior issues.  I am confident that I can help your dog see the word in a much better way through gentle positive training that works. The one on one consultation includes a written written follow up that will include the session reminders and tools to get you started helping your dog.  I recommend at least 6 sessions of work then after the 6 session we will see where you and your dog are at.
