Aggressive Dog Training – Do You Need It?


Aggressive dog training is usually required when a dog shows signs of dominance, like not obeying commands on a regular basis that you just give, or never obeying commands from anyone else. One other sign of aggressive behaviour is usually shown through fear that’s accompanied by nervous growling and barking.

Possessive dogs, which growl when anyone goes near their food bowl, or other belongings, are also showing signs of aggression. Also, dogs that fight with other dogs, or chase after people or other animals, and/or who growl and bark if anyone comes near the yard or their bed, definitely need some aggressive dog training.

Being continually wired from aggressive behaviour is bad for any animal. Your dog won’t grow out of aggressive behaviour, and you should not feel flattered because he’s ‘protecting’ the yard because he should not be in control of anywhere, you have to be in control of your him and his environment. If this aggressive behaviour is not checked, he could hurt someone or himself.

For instance, sometimes owners of small dogs are overly protective of them and this leads to the little dog displaying the identical behaviour to realize affection. Attempt to correct this with aggressive dog training. Use the ‘Time Out’ approach. Each time he exhibits snarling, growling, aggressive behaviour, say ‘No’ firmly, leave the room and shut the door for 30 seconds.

Dogs who bark at all the things that passes your yard may should be muzzled first after barking, after which it’s best to place your hand over the muzzle and say “Quiet”. When he’s calm, and quiet, praise and reward him. When you discover aggressive behaviour, you will need to change your behaviour in case you want your dog to behave.

As an illustration, in case your dog is jumping up on people, before you start aggressive dog training, you will need to evaluate the way you greet your dog. While you arrive home, does he happily run to fulfill you, jump up at you, and receive praise, then food, after which a walk or some playtime? No wonder he jumps up on everyone else when he receives such rewards from his owner. Train your dog to “sit” and “settle.”
