The Signs of Aggression
Do you know the signs of aggression?
Are you ignoring the warnings?
Are you living on the edge because of your dog?
IMPORTANT: If your dog is showing signs of aggression, you should rule out any medical problems or injuries that may be causing your dog pain. A trip to the Vet is a good idea.
So, they ignore it --- pretend it doesn't exist --- and avoid it. They insist "He'll grow out of it!" Or they think "Our dog loves us and wouldn't hurt a member of the family." Or they say "He isn't aggressive all the time." Hello! Think about it. If dog owners (and a lot of professionals) didn't ignore the problem people wouldn't be living with aggressive nightmares. Children wouldn't be maimed for life. There would be no deaths from dogs. Insurance companies wouldn't be denying homeowners and renters the liability coverage they so desperately need. And certain breeds of dogs would not be discriminated against. Aggression is not a breed problem. It exists in every breed, just as loving, wonderful dogs exist in every breed.
If your dog shows any of the following signs then please do not ignore them:-
Lunging towards other dogs, people, bikes, joggers etc
Barking and growling at other dogs
Not listening to you in the presence of dogs or people
Growling at anyone going near them in the house
If you have answered yes to any of these then you may have an aggressive dog
