Aggression is one of the worst behaviors your dog can exhibit. Left unchecked, an aggressive dog can be a potential threat to family members, strangers, other dogs, or themselves. Many dog owners do not know how to train a dog with aggressive tendencies or even how to recognize early warning signs of aggressive behavior. Catching aggressive behavior early on is important in eliminating aggression. An aggressive dog may exhibit the following behaviors:
- Growling or bearing teeth
- Threatening barks
- Standing rigid and/or taller
- Raised fur
- Nipping and/or biting
Left unchecked, these warning signs may lead to a dog acting out in a potentially dangerous way, like biting or attacking a person or another dog. Aggression usually arises from fear, anxiety, improper training, or a negative environment. Dogs that were rescued from a poor situation or found on the street have a higher chance of exhibiting aggressive behaviors. Fortunately, all aggression can be addressed with professional dog training. Dog Training Elite specializes in aggression training and can teach your dog to be a happy, friendly, and loyal pet.
Personalized Behavior Modification Training Process
The trainers of Dog Training Elite understand that each and every dog is unique and we have worked hard to develop a comprehensive dog training program that eliminates aggressive behaviors that can be applied to various dog breeds. We will work with you and your dog together, ensuring that your dog understands you are the one in control. By completing our training program in your home, we are better able to understand the underlying causes that may be triggering your dog’s aggression. By eliminating fears and anxieties, we can work with your dog to develop an understanding that aggressive behaviors are unacceptable. We never use punishment in any of our training programs as punishment has been shown to actually increase aggression in dogs. We have had 100% success in eliminating aggressive behavior in dogs using positive reinforcement and obedience training.
A pet should be loving and loyal to your family. Don’t let aggressive behavior go unchecked as it could lead to someone getting hurt. Aggression is a complicated behavior in dogs that is best left up to professional trainers. For quality aggressive dog training, contact Dog Training Elite and make an appointment today.
Our Balanced Theory
We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.
Empowering OwnersWe empower owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
PersonalizedWe deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
Environment SpecificWe train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
SupportiveWe support owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
InvolvedWe work with all members of the household.
Simplified & CustomizedWe plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 15 min/day follow-up practice.
