6 common types of dog aggression6 Common Types of Aggressive Dog Behavior

One of the first steps to stop aggressive dog behavior is understanding why the dog is behaving aggressively to begin with.  Doggy Dan’s training program will solve all types of dog aggression.  But for the sake of your being informed about what type of aggression your dog is exhibiting, let’s discuss six common types of dog aggression.

1.  Fear Aggression.  When a scared dog feels trapped, they’ll show aggression or even fight to protect themselves.  Aggressive dog behavior is often misunderstood.  It’s likely the dog is not mean or nasty.  They’re often reacting aggressively out of fear.

2.  Resource Guarding.  Dogs will sometimes act aggressively when they’re trying to protect what’s theirs.  This can be their toys, food, bones, or even people.  Dog Food aggression is quite common.

3.  Leash Aggression.  If your dog pulls towards other dogs during walks, barks at them, or even lunges at them, they may be leash aggressive.  Leash aggression is fairly common.  Doggy Dan’s aggression training will solve leash aggression.  You might also want to check out his free leash training tutorial, Guide to Loose Leash Training and Lovely Dog Walks.

4.  Pain Aggression.  Even a dog who is normally loving and gentle can become aggressive when they’re in pain.  If a dog is injured or ill, they may even bite with little or no warning.  They may behave aggressively, even if you’re trying to help them, because they’re trying to prevent further pain.

5.  Aggression toward other dogs.  Dogs can become aggressive toward other dogs due to factors like dominance, fear, stress, or lack of training.  If your dog shows aggression toward other dogs, it can greatly influence whether you can enjoy walks with them, or worse, whether you can walk them at all.

Many years ago, I had a miniature doxy named Maggie who would ferociously attack other dogs…even huge dogs!  I wish I would’ve had Doggy Dan’s training back then!  It would’ve saved me having to keep her out of trouble all the time.  That little dog was a scrapper! LOL

6.  Aggression toward people.  There are a whole host of reasons why a dog might behave aggressively toward people.  Obviously, this not just bothersome or annoying; it can be downright dangerous.  If your dog tends to be aggressive toward people, especially children, it’s imperative that you get it solved quickly.  And if your dog is aggressive toward YOU, don’t procrastinate on addressing it.  Get Doggy Dan’s help and get it solved before someone gets hurt!

Is your dog so aggressive toward other dogs that you’re afraid to take them for a walk?  Is your dog’s aggressive behavior so unpredicable (or severe) that you’re afraid they’ll hurt someone?  Are you afraid for the safety of other animals, whether it’s your own pets, your neighbor’s pets, or other animals in general? Or maybe your dog is being aggressive toward YOU and you’re beginning to actually fear your dog.

Aggressive dog behavior is one of the biggest reasons why dogs are sent to shelters, dumped on the side of the road, or even euthanized. It’s tragic and heartbreaking, but it happens every day.  Some dog owners truly believe that there is no hope to stop the aggressive dog behavior, and they worry that keeping an aggressive dog will put themselves, their families and other people and animals in danger.  Understandable, of course.

If you’re feeling desperate about your dog’s aggressive behavior, take steps to keep yourself, your family, people and pets safe, then at least try Doggy Dan’s training for aggressive behavior.  According to Doggy Dan, “With a little time and training, any aggressive dog can be given a second chance at living a safe, happy and healthy life.”

Can You Fix Aggressive Dog Behavior?

Yes.  According to Doggy Dan, “When it comes to dogs, the good news is that with proper training these behavioral issues can be curbed, leaving you with a calm and relaxed pup.”  You can stop aggressive dog behavior by understanding why your dog is behaving aggressively and learning the (simple) steps to stop it.
