Struggling with Aggression?
Aggression manifests in many forms. Sometimes you can see it building slowly, and other times it seemingly appears out of nowhere. This has led to many varying theories within the training market and much controversy regarding possible solutions.
Simply stated, all aggression is rooted in fear. A dog actively displaying aggression is attempting to “survive” the given moment. Instincts (fight/flight) have overwhelmed the dog’s capacity to feel connected and the dog is collapsing into abject fear and panic. However, if our dogs can retain the capacity to feel connected to their handler and surroundings, then instincts will not take over. We help owners develop this capacity in their pups by teaching 5 Core Exercises, developed by Kevin Behan of Natural Dog Training. These exercises are the foundation through which a dog processes information in a given situation. Without a strong core that can process high rates of change, our dogs will continue to have a crack in their foundation and aggression will “leak” out.
