How to Handle Aggressive Dogs
While dogs are generally thought of as “man’s best friend”, dependable and loyal pets through and through, it is important to remember that they are animals with instincts that dictate much of their behavior.
Many dogs have aggressive tendencies that can stem from a variety of reasons, and can be a threat to both their owners and other dogs. However, by understanding the causes and signs of aggression in dogs, you can hopefully learn how to control your pet and keep yourself and your family free from attack or injury.
Dogs have a natural instinct, as many animals do, to be assertive and to be dominant over other animals. It is important, therefore, to put your dog through obedience training early on (ideally, while it is still a puppy) to reinforce to your dog that you are the dominant creature in that relationship.
Many dogs respond aggressively in situations where they feel threatened or afraid. It is important to remember that even though you might not think that a certain situation / action might threaten your dog, what really matters is the dog’s perception of the situation that you need to be aware of.
As such, avoid quick movements or any physical violence towards your dog, as it is likely to provoke aggressive responses.
Dogs instinctively protect what they understand to be “theirs,” which can include physical space, such as a bed or a corner it sleeps in, puppies, or food.
As such, it is important to not come between a dog and something it considers to be its property or territory. If you must, be sure to do so with caution and to do so slowly in order to prevent injury.
