Intimadating body language
Dominate Dog Aggression is clearly only one type of aggressive behavior dogs can display. Perhaps they were not required to work for anything for their owners, but for some reason, they have it in their heads that they are in charge.
Many owners do not take this sort of dog aggression seriously, but it should be noted that this is a very serious behavior problem.The best key to avoiding misdirected aggression is to do preventative maintenance. When at the dog park or on a walk, make sure to monitor your dog’s body language including the position of his tail, whether his coat is standing up or not and how he moves.If you do have to break up a dog fight, avoid using your hands; instead use a large blanket (if possible) to pull your dog out.This type of aggression is triggered by the need to chase or the prey drive; possibly created in dogs by lack of basic training or socialization (probably not dominate dog aggression).This type of dog becomes aggressive by seeing something small that could be considered prey move quickly in his line of sight.
Toy dogs, such as the Chihuahua or the Pomeranian can be equally aggressive.
