FEAR AND AGGRESSION TIPS

 

BrodyBrody is a sweetheart, but has a tendency to be sensitive and fearful. This has caused him to act a bit aggressively at times towards strangers and other dogs.

 

It’s typical that fear turns into aggression as dogs age, so the sooner you address it the better.

 

Aggression usually starts to show up after 1 year, and even more so around 18 months. Most of the calls I get from people saying that their sweet dog “suddenly” started barking or being aggressive is at this age.
