Behavioural problems: aggression

If your dog has become aggressive, consult your vet to rule out a medical cause. Understanding the various types of aggression in dogs can help you determine why your dog might be aggressive.

Do not use physical punishment on your dog. Hitting your dog could cause him or her to become afraid or more aggressive. Treating canine aggression is usually complex and can be dangerous, so a treatment plan should be designed and supervised by a behaviour specialist.
