Canine aggression is a problem that should not be ignored. The signs of canine aggression are readily recognizable: bared teeth, growling, flattened ears, snapping, snarling, and biting. While dogs use these behaviors to communicate with one another, they are unacceptable when directed towards humans. A wise pet owner will learn how to distinguish these signs.
There are three primary types of aggression that dogs display:
- Fear motivated – Occurs when a dog believes that he is in danger
- Dominance – Establishing and defending what the dog believes is their place in the social hierarchy
- Territorial – Defending what the dog believes to be “his’
Aggression in dogs is an issue that should not be ignored. The issues behind it are complex, which can arise from many different causes, and the results are serious. However, it is not something you should attempt to correct on your own. If your dog is displaying unacceptable signs of aggression, then you need to seek the assistance of a professional dog trainer.
At Auburn Leach K9 Solutions, we work with dogs displaying dog to dog aggression, dog to human aggression, and dog to other animal aggression. After working closely with your four legged friend one on one and are 100% confident that your dog no longer possess a threat with its aggressive behavior, we will begin to slowly introduce mass socialization into their customized training program. Under a strictly supervised setting, your dog will be carefully introduced to other animals one at a time.
In addition to aggression therapy, we also offer many other types of dog training classes. At Auburn Leach K9 Solutions, we are open year round – in all types of weather. Our campus offers both indoor and outdoor training facilities. To learn more about the ways we can help both you and your dog, contact us today!
