Dominance aggression is one of the common canine behavior problems comes from the lack of leadership in the dog owner or if I may say, a common spoiled dog problem. They let the dog become the alpha dog that controls the life in the house. This is not just a problem that occurs on big size dog, but every dog regardless the body size.
For many dog owners who are dealing with this problem, they don’t have any clue of how can their dog become so dominant and aggressive. Many dog owners think that they already give the dog so much love and freedom so the dog won’t feel stressed. Well, I’m afraid I have to say that this kind of thinking will only make the dog unbalance and feel obligated to step up as the pack leader since their owner is too weak energy to lead the pack. If an unbalance dog leads the pack, he has the freedom to behave anyway he wants and mostly will only lead to serious behavior problems like the dominance aggression.
The aggressive behavior is a way for the canine to tell you that he demand something from his follower, whether it is a toy, attention, affection, food or anything. If you come to him and give what he wanted then you are under his control and nurture the behavior so in the future your dog knows that become aggressive is the only way to get what he wants.
Stopping your dog dominance aggression is not an option and should be addressed as early as possible before the behavior become worse and can actually hurt your family, friend or other people.
The only way to fix this behavior is for you, the dog owner, to step up and claim back your position as the top dog, the alpha role, and the pack leader. Your dog must know that you are in charge and your dog have to follow everything your decide. Your dog must never be allowed to demand anything; instead your dog must work to get what he wants.
