The mind controls the body, but the body also controls the mind. Below, learn how obedience is used to help aggression.

LEAVE IT

Mechanical

Proof your dog so well he’ll practically ignore the stimulus.
Refuse to be that embarrassing example of someone repeating themselves 10 times.
Don’t simple stop your dog from what he’s doing but also simultaneously expect a new behavior.

 

Everyday Life

Self control for resource guarding.  Leave public reactivity on the past.  Stop the lawsuit before it starts. Have him focus on you

PLACE

Mechanical

Send your dog to a specific location form distance.
Leave him there until released.
Teach him the specifics of training.

 

Everyday Life

Give an anxious dog in area to be a dog again. Save relationships in multi dog households. Don’t struggle with grabbing an aggressive dog. Send him to his designated spot.

DOWN

Mechanical

Say down and expect down, not sit. Command your dog down, only to be released with permission.
Down him while in motion. He’ll wait for you to return.

 

Everyday Life

Have him lay on the ground in a stressful environment to overcome fear. Prevent conflict in the home. Command him down while you refocus. Use down-stay when you first notice the behavior

RECALL

Mechanical

Have your dog come all the way to you, not just most of the way.
Stop repeating yourself and build desire.
Have confidence calling your dog from long distances.

 

Everyday Life

A loose aggressive dog needs to be able to come at the drop of a dime. Use recall to turn his back to the stimulus. Good socialization means impeccable timing. Fast response is a must.

HEEL

Mechanical

Side step and have him follow suit.
Stop unpredictably, making him pass you. watch him back up on his own.
Keep your dog behind your hell.

 

Everyday Life

It’s difficult for him to be reactive when he doesn’t pass you in the first place. Continuously having him next to you will strengthen your bond.  Such structure in the distracting outdoors says a lot about you.

SIT

Mechanical

Have him sit anywhere.
A dog should distinguish sit from down.
Add distractions and keep him still.
 

Everyday Life

Interrupt his memory formation using sit. Use sit during a counterconditioning procedure.  Combine sit with look, hit pause, whats your next decision? Whatever you decide.

CLIMB

Mechanical

Advanced him to a higher position.
Help his muscles become versatile, not just back and forth.
Have him hold the position until released.

 

Everyday Life

Build confidence to help fear aggression.  Give mental stimulation to balance anxiety.  Being elevated to a vulnerable position builds Trust.

WHAT IS AGGRESSION?

It’s not exactly rocket science. Instead let’s ask- why do they do it? Because “it works.” If a dogs behavior is successful, he’ll create a system around it. Dogs are logical.

CAN AGGRESSION BE CURED?

No. Give the dog Amnesia and he would probably still be the same, because aggression is a natural behavior in dogs.

IS MY DOG AGGRESSIVE?

Besides an “act” of aggression, clinical aggression is less common then you’d think. But remember, it’s natural. Such normalcy is okay when it’s in our favor (E.G. dog defends against burglar). It becomes problematic when you’re not okay with it. Are you okay with it?

WHY THE NEW BEHAVIOR  WITH MY DOG?

A lot of times it’s new hormones. His behavior may have been building up over time and the subtle cues went unnoticed. In other cases, a dog can be stressed, anxious, finally, choosing aggression to deal with it. Still wondering? Get ahold of us and tell us your story.

MY DOG ACTED AGGRESSIVELY BUT NOT SINCE THEN

In dog psychology, discrimination is easiest understood by something that “specifically” sets your dog off. Because it may be one small thing, you may not have caught it.  Similarly, “context” is when the environment, or situation sets him off. Can you guess what the stimulus was?

BUT MY DOG’S A RESCUE

Your dog is a rescue. You can’t explain his behavior. he’s reactive, still anxious after entering his forever home.

Unless an entire litter is kept together, all dogs are rescues. But yes, they’re social, and learn from new experiences. Shelters deliver a high amount of stress to a dog.

You don’t have your dogs history. Genetics, the individual dog, his ability to adapt (more than you think) can help.

The good news? There are still ways of finding his triggers. And remember, they do what works. Your job is to find a qualified professional to humanely show him that it doesn’t work.
