If you have been told you have an aggressive dog in the past, you have found the right trainer to work through the issues. Most times, when I deal with these issues, they are just bad behaviors from the dog that have been mislabeled as aggression.
No matter who has told you your dog is aggressive, it still is most likely just bad behavior. How do I know? I work aggressive dogs with our personal pack on a daily basis and this is what I have experienced with them.
With my training it is highly unlikely that you will have to surrender, put down, or re-home your dog. Most of the aggressive dogs I work with are actually under-socialized, they have not been given clear boundaries, good structure or consistent consequences. They don’t know how to react in the real world and end up making bad choices like growling, lunging and biting. By being proactive with our training program, I can lay out clear rules and a structure for the dog. The dog will then have better coping skills and will make better choices then to growl, lunge or bite.
Whether they are dog aggressive or human aggressive I will work with them. Being one of the only people in the country to have lived with a personal pack of nearly 30 dogs in my home. No dog is too aggressive for me to work with! As a world-renowned dog behavior expert I have worked with the highest level of aggression as well as helped educate other trainers to do the same.
My aggressive dog training is not a special training service, it is inter-woven into all of my training programs. My board & train is effective in these cases because removing a dog from it’s environment, and balancing the dog at my home with the help of my pack can create a huge difference in your dog in a very short time.
