If you want to understand how to stop aggression in dogs you need to ask yourself two questions!
First, are YOU subconsciously encouraging aggression with your dog simply by joining in? Secondly, does your dog listen to you just before it behaves the way it does when you try to fix the problem?
The Answer Below
At this point, your dog has established himself to become aggressive and will take no notice of anyone including you.
He is making his own decisions and will not listen to you even if you try to show him a different way to behave.
He is simply doing what he thinks he is supposed to do and is the right thing to do. In his thoughts, he is the pack leader.
Dogs aggressive behavior is always done so as to protect their pack and their own lives.
Why Dogs Become Aggressive
First, there is a wide range of different types of aggression from dominant to fearful and other behavior in between.
Then there is the unpredictable aggressive behavior that occurs at any time depending on different factors.
The step you need to do is observe what your dog is aggressive towards, it could be other people, animals, other dogs or objects.
The way to stop dog aggression is to show your dog that you are the pack leader.
