Dog aggression is a big liability to the dog owner. Every year dog bites from aggressive dogs account for hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and millions of injuries. Salt Lake City and surrounding areas are not immune to the problem. Utah dogs account for many dog bites and aggression issues.

There are numerous types of aggression from dog aggression to human aggression to handler aggression to food aggression and territorial aggression. Each one requires a special touch in order to fix. While every type of aggression is different and every dog is different there is a general formula for curing all types of aggression.

  • Control your dog. This means obedience training.  When we refer to obedience training we’re not talking about getting your dog to sit for a cookie.  Treat level obedience is not effective enough to inspire a change in aggressive behavior.  Picture your dog when (s)he’s acting aggressively.  Does your dog care about the treat?  Or the trigger to the aggression?  You need high level obedience that isn’t dependent on treats if you are going to solve an aggression issue.
  • Control your dog’s environment.  You need to be aware of your dog’s triggers and how to best address them in the environment where your dog is.
  • Desensitize your dog to the root cause of the aggression.  This means understanding your dog’s triggers and using the obedience to ‘re-define’ them for your dog.  We need to teach your dog that a doorbell ringing isn’t cause for aggression, nor is a neighbor dog, nor is a tall man, etc.
  • Address the aggression head on and teach your dog that aggression is absolutely unacceptable.  We teach an incredibly effective way for correcting aggression when it occurs.

Aggression is a difficult problem to deal with but nearly always has a fix. If you have been told by other trainers or veterinarians to medicate, get rid of, or euthanize your aggressive dog please call us before you do so. More than likely there is a solution to your aggressive dog problem. Trust your dog with aggression issues to the trainer in Utah who has been sought after the world over for fixing aggression.

**New Video**

Check out the video below.  This dog was sent to us by a local prosecutor as a last chance after he’d bit someone.  This guy had bit several people before finally landing in hot water.  He couldn’t be around anyone in public without lunging and attempting to attack.  A few weeks into our boot camp, however, and this guy is now safely in public.

The following is another fun video. Nearly every dog in this shot came to us due to big time aggression issues. Within a short period of time they’re able to co-exist without issue.
