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 which may include: 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, improper play and more.
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 the LEGS approach which encompasses the entire dog, Learning, Environment, Genetics and Self. We highly recommend you read this short overview on LEGS.
If you would like more information about the LEGS approach and would like to schedule an evaluation for your dog, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a detailed description of the problems you are experiencing with your dog, and we will contact you to set up an evaluation.
