Dogs can suffer from various behaviour issues such as aggression, jumping, toilet training, excessive barking, chewing and many more.
We believe that there is always a reason behind the problem and we will help you to overcome the problem so your dog can enjoy their life without stress. With training and socialising your dog becoming more important these days since the introduction of the Dangerous Dogs Act in May 2014, we will work with you and your dog to address any issues you may have.
Aggression is a normal part of the way animals behave and is the outward expression of an emotion and can be used to communicate various intentions. Rather than being something that switches on and off suddenly, aggression is part of a range of behaviours that dogs have available to them to deal with life’s challenges. Many of these behaviours are passive and it is only when the dog changes from trying to avoid a situation, through things like moving away or showing that they aren’t happy, to actively trying to manage the situation, that we term it “aggression”. When a dog has to cope with a particular feature of its life it has a number of options available to it. Aggression is simply a part of some of those options.
Remember, your dog is a wild animal trying to adjust to our world and patience is an important part of their training.
