Reactive and Aggressive Dogs

Behaviour Consulting

What does a reactive dog look like? 

  • Lunging

  • Barking and/or growling

  • Snarling and/or snapping

  • Pulling on the leash towards or away from something

  • Over excited

  • Fearful or Anxious

  • Will not listen to commands

  • Typically will not follow through on their threat to bite

  • Often mislabled as aggressive behaviour


What is aggression?

  • Intent to do harm to a person or animal

  • May have already landed bites

  • Can include any of the characteristics of a reactive dog

  • Posturing and guarding behaviours

  • Predatory behaviours

  • Many types of aggression have been defined


Most of the dogs that fall into the category of reactive and aggressive dogs are coming from a place of fear, anxiety and confusion or are suffering from medical causes of the behaviour. Proper treatment of these issues requires a holistic approach incorporating nutrition, medicine, management, applied behaviour modification techniques, and training. With this kind of comprehensive program you can take your dog from stressed, to calm, confident, and compliant.
