One of the most common behavioral problems is aggression.
There are many types of canine aggression:
- Fear Aggression
- Dominance Aggression
- Territorial Aggression
- Animal Aggression
- Food Aggression
- Handler Aggression
- Prey Aggression
In general terms Canine Aggression:
- Is a learned behavior created by environment or negative experience
- Can be a genetic fault that is inborn.
- Increases with maturity and repetition.
- Owners inadvertently encourage and reinforce aggression.
Some dogs can have a combination of different types of aggression and only display these aggressive tendencies in certain situations, surroundings or with certain individuals.
If you are experiencing aggression issues with your dog, the first step is to contact Mike for an evaluation to identify what type of aggression your dog is displaying and design a rehabilitation and training program to resolve these issues.
