Behavior & Aggression Management


Aggression in dogs can be complex, serious and dangerous for dog owners. To treat the problem effectively, it will first be necessary to determine which type of aggression your dog displays: conflict-related, fear, dominance, possessive, protective, territorial, maternal, play, redirected, pain-induced, inter-dog aggression, aggression toward familiar and unfamiliar people, status-related aggression, pathophysiological (or medical), or learned. In many cases, more than one form of aggression may be exhibited.

Behavior issues can be wide ranging and include things like: Fear of humans, dogs, things or noises. Excessive barking & whining, destructive chewing, separation anxiety, resource guarding, and improper play. 


At Pleasant Paw's we can help you diagnose which type of behavior/aggression your dog is displaying specifically then teach you how to cope with that issue using counter-conditioning and desensitizing techniques to change the dog's mind-set before the problem can get escalated.
