4 Dog Training Tips For Handling Overly Aggressive Dogs


If you do own an overly aggressive dog that is rather shy, it is important you begin working with them as soon as possible. The last thing you want to happen is have your dog harm another dog, a child, or even someone within your own family. Here are four dog training tips to give a try before making the decision to have them put down.

1. Training sessions
The first thing you want to do is build the confidence and security of your dog by setting up training sessions. Every dog is going to have some kind of fear whether it is other people on walks, kids running around, or other dogs approaching them. For this reason, you want to set up a controlled environment to ease this tension. You can have a friend meet up with you when you go on a walk and have the friend give your dog a treat. Things like this will help them become comfortable.

2. Socialization
Many times an aggressive dog is not used to being around other dogs and as a result, they will show aggression. Fortunately, you can alter this personality and teach them to enjoy the company of other dogs. Start out by keeping your dog on a leash in an area with a few other dogs that are calm and comfortable. If your dog shows signs up anger, hold the leash tight and give it a yank here and there. Show them they need to learn to play nice.

3. Avoid aggressive adult dogs
The last thing you want to do is place your dog with an aggressive older dog. This is one of the most important dog training tips to take into consideration. Think of it as being similar to people; you do not want to surround yourself with negative people. Instead, you want to surround yourself with confident, positive and successful people. The same holds true for dogs as you want to surround them with calm and playful dogs.

4. Muzzle
The last of the dog training tips is to purchase a muzzle to use during socializing and obedience lessons. It is important you familiarize your dog with it by placing it on just before feeding it or before playing in the yard. Then, it will not be a problem placing it on before these sessions. While training your dog, you do not want them to attack another dog or person. The muzzle is a precaution and can be removed as your dog begins to make progress.
