How To Solve Territorial Aggression
We know living with a dog who suffers from territorial aggression can be very stressful for the dog and the owner. Territorial aggression can be seen in many different forms. Some dogs may be territorial over their favorite toy while other dog may aggressively guard their backyard.
It is completely normal for a dog to be territorial in certain situations. However, it is important to keep an eye out for warning signs of aggression. I have worked with many clients who often wait until their dog’s territorial behavior turns aggressive before seeking help from a professional trainer. Some common warning signs are excessive barking at strangers who come to your home and/or nipping or growling when you try and touch your pup’s favorite chew toy.
I receive plenty of calls a day from dog owners who are afraid of their own dog. Some owners allow themselves to become their dog’s territory. There is a fine line between being protective and having territorial aggression. Once your dog views you as being helpless, their protective behavior usually shift to aggression.
