Aggression in Dogs is Scary for humans...
Most humans are scared when their dearly loved dog shows those pearly whites in an aggressive way. Of course it scares you when you witness aggression in dogs. It’s supposed to scare you!
After over 20 years working with dogs and their humans, I’ve found that most dog parents believe that aggression comes out of nowhere. When actually, aggression in dogs always has a trigger or context. Understanding what triggers this behavior in your dog and what the problem context is for your personal dog, makes it a little less scary.
Understanding the context that your dog isn’t coping well with in a social situation, is where we begin. I’ve found it helps my clients greatly to understand aggression in dogs, where it comes from and how to handle UPSET behaviors in dogs.
