What is behind dog aggression?
Dogs are peaceful animals by nature. In fact, whenever they feel insecure or uncomfortable, they will throw their ears back and, if they can, they will move away. In the event that they cannot flee, two things can happen:
- Than put yourself in a submission position, with the tail between the legs and the crouched body.
- Or that decide to act: it will show the teeth, it will growl, the back hair will bristle, and the tail will normally keep it straight. Dogs that choose to react in this way, are those that at some point in their lives are labeled "aggressive", when in reality they are not.
These animals decide to behave in an aggressive or violent way for a main reason: fear. They may have been mistreated (either physically and / or psychologically), or that they feel insecure, or that we simply have not socialized them well as puppies and do not know how they should behave with others of their kind. With this in mind, let's see how to prevent my dog from being aggressive.
