An owner of such a dog would most likely not fully comprehend how to properly train their dog. After all, this lack of proper training often results in aggressive behavior as the dog reacts to certain situations with his natural instincts. To avoid this type of behavior in the future, you must learn some tips on how to board an aggressive dog.
The first thing you should do before learning how to board an aggressive dog is to try and understand the behaviour of your dog. Some common aggression among dog owners is fighting. This can be manifested in many ways but the one common trait is the tendency to fight other dogs. Aggressive behaviour in dogs might also be displayed when they are provoked. Therefore, aggressive dog training is a matter of controlling the behaviour of your dog especially when you see signs of aggression surfacing.
It is important that you learn how to discipline aggressive dogs and not provide a reason for them to act that way. This is where the knowledge of dog behaviour is so valuable. If you have this information, it will be easy to control and moderate your dog’s behaviour so that it no longer exhibits aggression towards other people or even towards other dogs.
One method you might want to try is to use a ‘red zone’ tactic. In this tactic, you direct your dog’s attention away from the red zone (its intended target) and instead move it towards the yellow zone (the zone that is not worth attacking). For example, if the dog is approaching a human and your dog lunges at the human, you move the dog off the human and towards the yellow zone. The dog will be confused as to why it is being asked to move away from its target and will stop lunging. This is a simple way to redirect the dog’s behaviour in the desired direction.
Another good way of controlling your dog’s behaviour towards other people is by using the concept of negative reinforcement. If you see aggressive behaviour towards another dog or when trying to train a dog, it will be beneficial to reward the dog with a small treat whenever it behaves in the appropriate manner. These treats will ensure that your dog stays on track and does not behave in an aggressive or destructive manner.
You should make sure that the treats are small so that your dog is not able to swallow it easily. You can do this by slowly moving the treat towards the dog’s mouth. Gradually increase the distance between you until the dog is able to take the treat from you without difficulty. As the dog gets used to the sound of the treat, you can increase the distance and make sure that your dog is not able to bring the treat back into contact with you when it comes close to the dog’s mouth.
When the dog starts to exhibit signs of aggression towards people or other dogs, you should take steps to contain and remove the threat. If you cannot remove the dog by yourself, you will need to consult a dog trainer who can provide you with a number of helpful tips and techniques. One of the best ways to deal with a dog that is already chewing up your possessions is by using a leash and chew toys.
The leash can be used to pull the dog back immediately after it has started to chew the treats. Using the chew toys on the other hand can help teach the dog the difference between acceptable and unacceptable behaviour. This will ensure that your pet remains on a good behavior path. As a dog trainer myself, I highly recommend using these tools when training your dog. They are effective, quick and cheap to use.
