A common form of dog aggression is a dog on dog aggression while out on a walk. Other forms can be aggression to people coming to your home or out on a walk (see video below), your own dogs fighting each other, dogs chasing cars, joggers, bikes, skateboards etc.
What is happening here is your dog believes it is leader and therefore decision maker, they are trying desperately to protect the pack (you) and are panic-stricken. This is a huge burden for them to have on their shoulders given that your dog is living in an environment it doesn’t understand, there can also be the added problem of your dog biting you during these times of panic.
It is important in these situations of aggression to show your dog that they have nothing to fear. What is of paramount importance is for you to remain calm. Easy for me to say, but once you understand why these aggressive situations are occurring together with the knowledge of how you are to respond, will give you the confidence needed, therefore, calmness will naturally follow suite.
The first step to solving aggressive behaviour in dogs and any other behavioural problem is to relieve the dog of the pressure of leadership.
