Dog Aggressive Behavior – 3 Common Dog Aggressive Behaviors

Any aggressive dog behavior intended to harm a person or animal can be frightening. Growling, baring teeth, snapping and biting are indicators of aggressive behavior. This type of behavior, although considered instinctive for the dog, is unacceptable for humans.

There are many factors that come into play when a dog exhibits this behavior. These include how the dog was treated as a puppy – cruelty from both a person and a dog can cause the dog to become more aggressive when similar actions are shown towards the dog. There may also be health problems that occur – if the dog has a hormonal imbalance. This could also be an attributing factor.

Because of the way humans and dogs communicate, a dog’s behavior can be misinterpreted as threatening and therefore misunderstandings can occur.

Aggressive behavior exhibited by a dog can have potential consequences if it is not properly cared for. I recommend professional help if your dog’s aggressive behavior becomes uncontrollable.

Types of Aggressive Dog Behavior:

There are many types of aggression, here I will look at the three most common:

* Dominant aggression. If your dog’s social status is challenged or his control of social interaction is threatened, your dog will exhibit aggressive dog behavior. Dogs bind a family group as a social group because dogs are social animals. If your dog thinks his social ranking is above yours, he will feel threatened and exhibit aggressive dog behavior. When not provoked in this way, his behavior will be friendly.

* Fear-motivated aggression. If your dog thinks he is being attacked or is in danger, he will show aggression. Behavior that may seem innocent to you, such as raising a hand to throw a ball, may be perceived by your dog as a threat. Also, when approached by another dog, your dog may become defensive or fearful because of things that happened to him as a puppy.

* Defensive and territorial aggression. When a dog thinks its territory or property is threatened, it will become aggressive. Dogs will become protective when they protect their food, toys and property, as well as valuables.

What you can do to manage your dog’s aggressive behavior:

There are many reasons why your dog may be acting aggressively. Consult your professional veterinarian if you believe your dog is exhibiting dangerous aggressive dog behavior

* Go to the vet and rule out medical reasons for this type of behavior.

* If things get too difficult, seek professional help. Don’t try to endure it.

Keep your aggressive dog in a safe place so no one else gets hurt. You are responsible for your dog’s behavior!

Avoid situations that may cause your dog unnecessary stress, such as situations that may frighten him.

If your dog exhibits possessive behavior toward a toy or food, keep him away from the objects and reward him with similar objects. Don’t let him have what he wants when he wants it. You are the dominant one in the group!

Never use aggression or violence on your dog. This will only make the situation worse. No matter how much you stress in front of the dog, it won’t help him at all.

Do not encourage aggressive behavior. If you see your dog exhibiting this type of behavior, take steps (in a positive way) to stop it.

There is a lot you can do to resolve your dog’s aggressive dog behavior. Don’t give up, but keep looking for ways to resolve the behavior. Denial only serves to send a message to the dog that he has become dominant in the family, thus allowing the dog to bark, snap and bite when he wants without stopping him.
