Aggression in Dogs

Published on August 31, 2010 by   ·   No Comments
Following the news today of DJ Samanthan Ronson’s dog attacking and killing another, smaller dog, we thought it would be apt to publish this item on understanding aggression in dogs.

There are several causes of aggressive behavior in dogs. Perhaps, because of problems of dominance between you and a dog, or it may be the trigger that has never been properly treated in puppyhood. What are the causes of aggression in your dog and what is the need to address them in the near future? Results of chronic aggression may not only scary, but dangerous, if not properly handled.

The source of aggressive behavior in dogs:

Dog aggression can begin at age of 6 weeks, a critical age when the puppy should be socialized with other dogs, and when they require necessary training to prevent others from pain. Socialization continues until the dog is at the age of 14 weeks and may be extended even further than that.

First, get a puppy out of bed when he is 8 weeks older. Do not use harsh discipline with a puppy, and make sure that the dog is treated with great care at that time. Pressing, shouting or other harsh punishment at early age can lead to the aggressive behavior in dogs over time.

The dog must be properly trained to behave properly among humans and other dogs, when they reach at the age of 14 weeks, to avoid problems for future attacks.

Real aggression may be caused by several factors. Heredity and genetics, of course, are real factors. Some breeds may be more aggressive than others, but it is certainly not a rigid rule. In addition, if dogs are not clean they can be more prone to aggressive tendencies.

Now, the most important factors in the development of aggressive behavior of dogs to their environment are: difficult living conditions, bad masters, not socialization, or fear, or attacked by another dog let the dog to become aggressive over time.

The pain, posture, and other aggressive tendencies, usually are a result of a dog testing for dominance. You must create a field at an early age and keep it in position during puberty to ensure that they could not take control of the households.

Stopping and Controlling Aggressive Behavior in Dogs: If your dog is aggressive at the end of 14 months until puberty is reached, especially after it was amended, should be considered immediately. First, make sure you did as the leader of the pack. Do not reward your dog for aggressive behavior, or in fear (especially in this case).

Train your dog to respond to your commands, control feeding and walking time, and make sure that the dog has a strong leader, at his home. If you put back the dog or allow it to take liberties at home, it will exhibit greater aggression towards others.

If your dog is an aggressive in defense, it can affect people in fear by attacking them. It is because the dogs were not properly socialized. Keep them out of reach of children, and participation in lectures or behaviorists which gradually acclimates the dog in the social environment.

Aggressive behavior in dogs is a big problem that many owners, but you can control, even if your dog’s age. If the offense is moving increasingly to violence, should consider hiring a professional to intervene before someone gets hurt, and your dog is responsible.
