Aggression is a common problem pet owners face, and it can be very dangerous if left untreated. However, there is good news: it is treatable.
The first step is understanding the underlying causes of the aggression. Who is the dog aggressive towards: family members, strangers, or other pets? What are his triggers and what are the symptoms? These are questions that must be answered in order to successfully treat your dog.
If left untreated, aggression usually worsens with age. People often ignore the signs until it’s too late. It is important to stop the behaviors early, and take action upon first notice. Educate yourself, and get a trainer if necessary. There are countless books on the subject as well. Dog aggression can be difficult to deal with, but with patience, it is manageable.
Common Symptoms of Dog Aggression May Include:
- Excessive barking
- Overprotectiveness of toys and/or food
- Escaping from the house/backyard
- Attacks on other animals
- Tucked back ears
