Aggression in dogs is an undesirable trait by tutors and by people who coexist with these animals, because it disturbs the conviviality and many everyday things, such as baths, ears and feet, placing collar and contact with people and other animals. However, one must understand that all dogs may exhibit some degree of aggressiveness which may arise due to various factors, such as:

  • fear and defense
    • Possessiveness
    • dominance between dogs

Some displays of aggression, which are often ignored or minimized by guardians, should be treated immediately, so that the problem from getting worse. They are:

Growls for possession of some object or food: many people regard this behavior as natural, since they understand that the dog can save an object that was given to him.
Growling or barking when strangers or people close to the tutor approach: it is seen as “behavior”, however, the dog may demonstrate this same conduct with people you know, can’t discern when “Save” the guardian.
Aggression when approached by persons unknown: for many, it is a natural and desirable behavior that the dog is not “uninhibited” with strange people, however, the animal can behave unexpectedly.

An aggressive dog, which has caused a lot of damage and seriously hurt people or animals, it is certainly more difficult to rehabilitate than a dog yet “bluffing” in this behavior. Therefore, it is necessary to intervene as soon as possible, when no sign of aggressiveness, with positive reinforcement-based training, involving all the people the dog lives.

That way, people will learn to deal and treat the problem in the right way, not allowing the bad behaviors of animals are practiced and reinforced. Generally, in these cases, it is possible to solve the problems practically.

Aggressive dogs must be trained and treated so they don’t show more behaviors, however, some factors must be taken into consideration for the success of the training, such as:

  • How long the problem exists
    • How often the guardians can train the pet
    • If there are health problems the dog
    • How is the environment and the people with whom the animal lives

Depending on the behaviour and how the dog, he may never be a fully or reliable, docile animal in all situations. Some dogs can improve a lot from training with positive reinforcement, about to win again the supervised living with people and other animals, however, they must be handled in a specific way, to avoid problems when there is supervision. This is quite common in cases of aggression between dogs, you need to have separate spaces for when you find yourself alone without tutors.

Anyway, in case of aggression is always indicated the follow-up of a qualified professional, who can interpret the behaviors of pet and guide the family so that they can deal in the best possible way, by giving security and quality of life for all.
