Dogs with aggression are often thought to be dominant or alpha dogs, however, most of these dogs are actually fearful dogs. Unfortunately, the lack of understanding of what dominance and aggression are has to lead to canine suffering and death.
Important Treatment Principles For The Dog With Conflict Aggression Include:
• Avoiding confrontation
• Having a safe way to handle the dog and establishing consistent dog owner interactions.
• If there is a specific trigger situation, desensitization and counterconditioning to that trigger can be implemented.
