Deal - Help with a Dog's Aggressive Dog behavior VS other Dogs

Go to Index

The most common thing is that the aggressiveness of the dominant dog will be directed to other dogs of the same gender.
ADVICE 396
This problem is more frequent with males than with females and it happens more frequently in one breed than others. The aggressiveness is higher when the dog is in its own territory.
Some dogs are not socially adapted, but most of the problems are related to hormones, or have been developed because of a lack of early and continuous contact with dogs. This can be difficult to fix, you may need professional help.
ADVICE 397
In most male dogs, castrating them when they are still young reduces this behavior.
The dominant and aggressive dogs look for a fight. The fight is almost always announced with aggressive postures and growls. If any of the dogs backs up, then there will be a fight.
ADVICE 398
When fighting, a dog can bite anyone who tries to intervene, even its master, so it is better not to do so.
FEROCIOUS CHALLENGE
There are potentially dangerous and very aggressive dogs such as the Pitbull, the Bullterrier, etc. With these dogs the precaution is never enough when it is time to go for walks with them since they are very predisposed to fight with other dogs.
ADVICE 399
If your dog is aggressive, you should put a muzzle on it before taking it out for a walk.
VISUAL CONTACT
ADVICE 400
You should intervene as soon as your dog and its possible adversary look at each other. The raised tail and an intense attention are clear indicators that a fight can start.
BETWEEN YOU AND THE DOG
Some dogs will aggressively defend their masters.
ADVICE 401
By putting yourself between your dog and the other and pulling the leash to avoid the fight, you are increasing the dog's sense of aggressiveness and the dog may end up associating the pulling of the leash with the aggressiveness, while, when going off the leash, not to show signs of it.
THE TENSE LEASH SYNDROME
Even when you instinctively try to retain your dog by shortening the leash when it begins showing aggressiveness, this usually makes the situation even worst.
ADVICE 402
Forcing the dog to back up can increase its aggressiveness.
ADVICE 403
What you have to do is divert your dog's head so it won't look at the other dog.
THE SOLUTION
1. In a quiet environment, begin practicing the call with the dog. Put the dog on a long rope or a retractable leash in order to make it come to you when you call it to give the dog one of its favorite toys.
2. Once the dog has been trained to come in a quiet place, practice the exercise outdoors, with other dog at a certain distance. Reward the dog for not being aggressive with the other animal. Reduce the distance between both dogs everyday, rewarding your dog for keeping quiet.
PREVENTION
1. When you find yourself in a probable aggressive situation, divert your dog's attention with its favorite toy and after that, order it to sit. Always reward its good behavior.
2. Get your dog used to wearing a muzzle. The muzzle keeps the dog physically away from biting and diminishes its domain.
THE MALE'S CASTRATION
Even when the female dog's sterilization is a more discrete way of avoiding undesired pregnancies and modify their behavior, there are people who speak against the dog's castration with no reason.
MATERNAL AGGRESSIVENESS
In some female dogs, the feminine hormones increase the maternal aggressiveness. In the periods of hormonal increase, twice a year, some of them become irritable, possessive with their toys and protective with their lairs. The sterilization diminishes this form of feminine aggressiveness, but no others.
SIMILAR PROBLEMS
ADVICE 403
It is more probable for equal dogs to fight rather than the ones that differ in size, age or gender.
