Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you notice that your dog is displaying a menacing behavior. Every dog behaviourist knows that an aggressive dog is a huge social concern, and a real threat to the dog owner. Your canine may angrily guard its water and food bowl, bully puppies, growl at people who live down the street, bark at passersby, snarl at the mail man or lunge at the neighbor's dog! It really does not matter what gets your dog all riled up, aggressive dog training is an effective way to tame your dog.

It is important to know that your dog's aggression can get a lot worse if it is not dealt with. You need to understand that correcting your dog's aggressive behavior will require the help of a skilled dog behaviourist in order to avert total disaster. A dog behaviourist can employ dog training techniques that will help your dog be on its best behavior.

If your dog becomes aggressive, you can employ the following dog training tips in order to tame your dog right away:

Take your Dog to the Vet

An undiagnosed health issue may be the cause of your pet's aggression. Health issues such as:

• Blood sugar imbalance

• Hormonal imbalance

• Neurological irregularity,

• Mineral deficiency

• Lead poisoning

Tell the vet about your dog's aggression issues, the vet will then test for diseases that often cause the behavior you have described. Please know that aggressive dog training will not offer a lasting result if the underlying health issues are left untreated.

Be the Alpha Leader

Most times your dog's threatening behavior is simply an attempt to overthrow you in order to be Alpha leader. Your dog may be programmed to dominate and is only trying to bully you into giving up your "Alpha-dogship" roll. But, it may also be afraid because it simply feels like there is no Alpha leader and is attempting to fill the space by being aggressive. If you do not establish Alpha leader status, you will have trouble training your pet successfully, and will not be able to work on aggressive dog training.

Take a Dog Obedience training Course

When you follow through on your commands and fail to give in to your dog's will, you will earn the respect of your dog. Obedience instruction will teach your pet to follow your orders and will teach you how to command well. This training will help you get your pet's attention and reward it accordingly when it responds very well to your commands. You do not need brute strength to control your dog if you or the dog behaviourist you hired makes obedience training part of effective aggressive dog training plan.

Change your Dog's Diet

An experienced dog behaviourist knows the version of canine junk food that causes unusual behaviour in your dog and its lack of control. Ensure you are feeding your dog with top notch, additive-free dog food. If your pet consumes commercial dog food, its aggressive behavior may be made worse by little or no vitamin and non-nutrient additives. Even a couple of high-end dog food brands are nothing but junk food.
