Read an article yesterday about aggressive dogs.

The article stated that disagreeable people prefer aggressive dogs.

It has been my experience that aggressive people tend to own aggressive dogs.

NOT all aggressive dogs belong to angry people, but the type of training and the environment will develop the dog’s behavior.

When a dog that is in a house that has owners that use force, hit, slap and use heavy discipline, there is a good chance that the dog will develop an aggression problem.

Once a dog goes to the dark side, your friends will quickly decline any visits to your house. If your dog bites your friends, there is a good chance you will hear from their attorneys.

So, if you want to WIN friends it really comes down to HOW you influence your dog.

The type of training you do will effect your dog. There are a LOT of aggressive dogs here in America and one of the main reasons is the type of training that is done on our dogs.

Luckily, in the last 20 years there has been a big movement towards positive training which is good but…the positive trainers strongly believe that you should never, under any circumstances, use any type of negative consequence.

I disagree with that line of thought because you are not going to stop unwanted behavior with positive consequences.

You can’t reward a dog for stealing off the counter or for peeing on your carpets. You have to provide a negative consequence.

What the all positive crowd does not understand, is that simply giving your dog a verbal correction and then rushing the dog out the door IS a negative consequence.

So using negative consequences will not ruin or develop aggression in your dog if you know what you’re doing.

It’s one of the reasons I developed the Good K9 Manners course, to show dog owners how to stop unwanted behaviors using negative consequences without harming your dog.
