Dog aggression is a fairly common problem that many owners will face at one time in their dog's life or another. It is actually so common that there are hundreds upon hundreds of studies associated with aggression.
Questions such as "Why does aggression occur," "Why are some breeds more aggressive," and "How can I use aggressive dog training to curb aggression in my dog," are asked on a regular basis.
Before you actually begin aggressive doggy training in NC, it is important to understand the type of aggression that your dog may be experiencing. Believe it or not, there are actually several types of aggression and each one will need to be handled in a slightly different manner. The types of aggression are:
– Dog Aggression: this can be seen in many different breeds and it is actually aggression that a dog shows to other dogs. · Fear Aggression:
Many people may not see fear as an aggressive behavior but if a dog begins to bite, bark, growl or bare his teeth when he is frightened then it has moved from simple fear to fear aggression.
– Dominant Aggression: This is a very serious type of aggression since the dog has many traits that you would see in a "bully."
One of the biggest problems with dominant aggression is that it is not always seen as aggression, just an alpha personality doing what it does best until the dog attacks someone or something. Another problem is that dominant aggression is very unpredictable.
