Dog aggression facts

Many owners have a huge problem with aggressive behavior in dogs , but it can be controlled, even as your dog gets older. It's a myth that German Shepherds are more aggressive than any other large dog......... it's all down to training your dog to be well behaved, and you as the dog's owner should be perceived by your dog as the 'Alpha Leader' of his pack and he (or she) should look to you for guidance and leadership.

By far, however, the most important factor in creating aggressive behavior in dogs is their home environment. A dog that has poor living conditions, harsh owners, no socialization, or that has been frightened or attacked by other dogs is far more likely to be aggressive as it matures.

dog anxiety......... dog fear ......... dog hyperactivity .......... dog food aggression
aggressive behavior towards other dogs........... dog aggression towards strangers
aggressive barking......... aggression in the home.......... aggression due to jealousy
aggression on the aggression on walks..... aggression in the dog park
these are all common aggressive dog behavior signs

Spaying and neutering dogs does not guarantee that they will be docile, and breeds that are bred as watch dogs or herding animals will need specific training on being non-aggressive.
It's a fact - neutered dogs are less likely to attack or bite. Consider getting your dog spayed
or neutered as the first step in dealing with aggressive behavior.

Dog aggression remedies

You should be aware that a puppy should never leave  its litter before 8 weeks of age.
A dog needs to have been properly socialized with people and other dogs by the time he reached 14 weeks  of age  to ensure that they don’t develop aggressive tendencies.

 Never use harsh discipline with a puppy  and make sure the dog is treated very gently  in that time. Hitting, yelling or other harsh punishments at a young age will breed fear in your dog and can breed aggressive behavior in dogs later as they get older.

These are all symptoms of Dog Agression and must be resolved as a matter of immediate concern, especially if you have young children in your home.

German Shepherd Dogs are 'pack' animals and are very loyal and protective towards their owner, his family and property. Therefore, it is a natural instinct for your German Shepherd to be on his guard and alert at all times - so yes he will bark at intruders (e.g. when someone comes to your door) and be wary of 'strangers' passing by your house.

They bark to let you know that someone is 'invading their territory' and to 'warn off' potential strangers, this is quite natural and if you are taking the position of Alpha dog i.e. you are the leader of your pack, then it is up to you to command your dog to be quiet and restrain his behavior (i.e. let him know you are aware  of the stranger and it's OK now).

You may have a German Shepherd that might become aggressive towards other dogs,  it could be because your dog is nervous or even fearful of other dogs, or is just trying to be dominant over other dogs, either way this needs to be dealt with promptly.

The best way of dealing with this is to make sure that your German Shepherd puppy is socialized with other older dogs, let him play with them so that he can learn to respect older dogs and behave with them in a good manner, and becomes relaxed around other dogs and does not view them as a threat to either himself or to you as his owner.

You must be aware that your German Shepherd is very intelligent, and surprisinly to you, he will be watching you and takes note of your reactions and behavior. So if another dog approaches you when you are taking him out for a walk, and you appear nervous - your German Shepherd Dog will immediately be on his guard and alert because he senses that you are nervous or afraid.

It would never occur to him that you are wary of his reaction to the other dog approaching you, and his natural instinct is to defend you - so as the other dog approaches, you must remain quite casual and calm, and get your dogs attention in order to distract him from the other approaching dog.

Give him the command to 'sit' and keep his attention - talk to him, give him a treat if you like, but distract him from the other dog, show him you are not worried and he will relax - the other dog passes - and the situation is now resolved.

Repetition is the key, keep talking to him and relax, then this problem with other dogs will disappear as he learns not to worry about other dogs.

This is really all about training your German Shepherd Dog, forming a bond between you, and enjoying a good, stable relationship of trust, understanding, and discipline......
 i.e. you must be the Boss!

Your dog does not suddenly show aggressive tendancies overnight, it will occur over a period of time which will only happen if you do not correct these aggressive behaviors as and when they may occur.
Do not ever tolerate bad behavior from your German Shepherd, he should never be allowed to get away with it, deal with it immediately. If you treat your German Shepherd in a fair but strict manner, believe me - he will respect you for it as the Alpha Dog i.e. his leader of your pack.

Dog Aggression

Dog Aggression starts from the need to establish a pack pecking order. Biting, posturing, and other aggressive tendencies are often the result of a dog testing for dominance. You need to establish dominance over your dog as the 'Alpha Pack leader' and maintain that position throughout the dog's adolescence to ensure it doesn't get a chance to take control of your household.
