Have an awesome dog?
In the start of the video you will discover that the dog is aggressive towards other dogs, however soon after implementing a few short steps the dog was actively playing with other dogs in a few minutes.

    ** SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SITUATION – ANY ADVICE? **
    I have a very dominant boxer, who I have socialised since she was a pup. She used to be perfect, playful and friendly with everyone but along the way she has been barked at and attacked so many times from other dogs. Then one day she was attacked badly whilst on the lead by a Bull Terrier and has 2 big scars on her face. She has now developed an aggression to other dogs as well (but only when they are on leads!!). She has never harmed another dog, but she will get up in their face and bark very aggressively and pull on the her lead, even if they haven't done anything to scare her. She is still friendly and playful to dogs which show positive body language when OFF the lead (submissive/wagging tail) but when she meets any new dog which is on a lead she "attacks" !! I'm sure this is a defensive thing to show she is "alpha, not scared, the tough one" and she would never actually harm anything but its obviously something that causes issues. I now just avoid crossing any dogs whilst on a lead now which is challenging sometimes but don't know how else to deal with this.

    Great technic! We didn't think our dog would ever get along with another dog. We watched this video in desperation and it worked! Yay! Thank you so much!

    I have a white Shepard and he lunges and growls. Just when were walking him. Any extra advice I could use to help his day to day aggression when the encounters do happen? We don't take him to play with dogs at the dog park due to his aggression so this method wouldn't really work. Its mostly when we encounter another dog on a leaded walk.

    This dog is anxious because he was under-socialised. He's anxious, not dominant.

    Hi, my German shepherd has been acting up lately. She stays outside and we have doors to the backyard and whenever my 3 year old sister goes next near the window my dog would bark and try to get in to attack her but hasn’t shown her any teeth, I’m concerned about my dog because she never does this and had recently started doing this yesterday. I’m scared to my life we don’t know what is going on, with our girl she only shows this behavior with people she doesn’t know or when people come over but NEVER to family if anyone can explain to me why she acting like this. Please I’m begging to know why and how to stop it thank you

    I have a 7 month labrador puppy and she's very sweet and good. My problem is that she never defends herself and a few bad trained dogs have bitten her at the park. The same 2 or 3 try to bite her almost every day, and they are usually unleashed so they sometimes come from really far away just to bark at her in a very threatening way.
    When I call her and talk to her she calms down but I don't want her to develop any kind of traumas because of this stupid owners that just don't care.
    So, taking into consideration that I don't have any relationship with those dogs or those owners what should my behaviour be when one of those dogs bites her, or tries to, so they understand that they cannot bite my puppy without consequences. I don't care if the other owners get mad at me, I just wanna find the best and more humaine way to communicate with those dogs without making them go bananas and making them even angrier.
    My puppy is very well behaved thanks to this videos on youtube, but I'm a bit desperate because I'm really close to act just as my intuition might decide on those specific moments, which may lead to making the situation worse. But I just cannot find any video or forum talking about this problem.
    So far I've been standing betwen those dogs and my puppy while talking to her so she stayed calmed (while the other owners pretty much didn't give a crap). But today one of those dogs bit my puppy again out of nowhere and it's scalating into a bullying situation as if they were teenagers in highschool.
    Thanks a lot.
    P.S. making those kind of owners learn and understand is not possible. I'm just looking for a behaviour that will communicate to those dogs to stop it and at the same time without turning the situation more agressive and tense.

    I have two dogs. A terrier that is eight years old and a terrier and beagle mix that is four. Recently, my family and I have been looking at an eight year old chihuahua. The older terrier is mean and tries to attack other dogs. The only thing left to get the chihuahua is to introduce him to our other dogs. I’m very worried that the oldest terrier will be mean.

    What if sometimes with some dogs your dog is absolutely fine, playful even snuggly then other times with other dogs for no reason when they're in the sniffing stage she just attacks. And when she attacks it causes my other dog (her son) to also attack as he copies everything she does. She is such a loving dog with humans, has never bit, is very very cuddly and will put up with children poking at her or me babying her, but with other dogs she's so dominant. She's fine with her son, she was fine with his dad, shes fine with my mums rotty and my neighbours westies and i've taken her to my boyfriends house multiple times with his westie and shes been fine but the other day i took her over, they were fine, sniffing and exploring but the next minute when the westie was doing the side to side sniff with her she just attacked him and it was really nasty. She also now cant play with my brothers dogs which are the dad to her pups who used to be mine and she loved him, and her daughter. I should mention they're jack russells so yes i know they have a tendancy to be nippy, but i want to be a foster carer for shelter dogs and can't because i just can't trust her not to hurt other dogs. I love my girl more than anything and want her to be able to run freely and play with other dogs but just don't know how to fix this.

    Dog to dog aggression sucks.. it makes you lose out on spending so many precious times with your dog and enjoying doing everything especially if you love camping ect.) and or just having your fur friend with you, I have a 100lbs bullmastiff female who thinks she’s all that and I don’t know if it’s to hurt a dog or to just meet because she has never been socialized and now she’s 5 so I assumed she’s just aggressive and can’t be around any dogs period, but used this method a little of just letting her be about 10ft away from my aunts dog with her muzzle on and me and my sister holding her and it worked a bit no growling or showing of true aggression more just curiosity, then we went to about 5ft slowly and unfortunately my aunts dog couldn’t hold it in anymore and got really excited and kinda pulled towards her whining because he’s super playful and thinks he’s friends with everyone..but we will keep trying as time goes on slowly getting closer as she shows improvement ❤️ thanks!

    This must be what my Cleo needs, she's been abused though so I don't really know what to do in regards to her aggression towards other dogs. Any suggestions for videos to help would be greatly appreciated.
    She attacked our older dog Honey the other night (we believe it was over food but there were no indications of aggression, it seemed out of the blue) and I've been looking for things to teach her to help her calm down when food is involved, but she really does need some training and my mum won't train her and I live far away so I feel that I can't do much about it.

    My dog is an 90 pound Rhodesian ridgeback he’s very energetic but he pulls a lot and acts a bit aggressive sometimes towards dogs and people he only listens to me when I’m at home but I can’t take him out by myself because he pulls so much and I can’t control him what else can I do ?

    I have a dog and he does not like other dogs and I can't try something like this cause 99% dogs around my area will start to bark at him and try to provoke him. For this you need a good dog partner who will teach your dog how to behave.

    I own a small dog for the first time. He is now 4 years old, and socialized. 3 weeks ago we went for a walk and a German Shepard appeared out of nowhere and almost killed him. My dog is always on a leash but this dog wasn’t. He broke my dogs bones and my dog had to get surgeries and therapies. It was a nightmare because he was screaming in pain , as a dog owner and a huge dog lover it was heartbreaking to see my dog hurting. Now there’s no way I’m letting him near big dogs he doesn’t know. It’s nothing personal even though people probably think I’m an asshole but I care about my dog and I don’t want him to go trough that hell again. Last day of therapy the owner of that Shepard showed up and his dog attacked AGAIN a dog that was just casually walking by. I don’t really blame the dog, his owner should be aware by now that he’s having issues and should be training him. At least should put a muzzle. I don’t hate German Shepards or any other breed, I actually feel bad for the dog because he’s not getting proper attention.

    Thanks for this video! My Rottie is a 7 year old rescue and she can be quite dominant (like the other dog was at the beginning). Once she's calm she's ok but this gave me a good point of reference for those initial introductions where she gets agitated and gets other dogs on the wrong side. Will try this approach at a doggy play date and hopefully she responds well 🙂

    MYTH: Positive trainers treat dogs like human kids.

    FACT: Treating animals like they are human beings is called anthropomorphizing, and good positive trainers do not do it. In fact, many of the common behavior issues that Victoria and other positive trainers are regularly called in to fix stem from the owner's tendency to anthropomorphize their dogs, and the first step in such situations is to convince them to stop treating their dog like a child.

    At the same time, modern behavioral science has shown us that the dog’s emotional brain is wired very similarly to a human’s – dogs have emotions, just not with a human’s level of complexity and ability to extrapolate. Comprehending this is the first step toward understanding our dogs: seeing the world from their point of view.

    I really want you to replay on this. My dog is a 3 years old miniature schnauzer. He usually barks at other dogs or at least try to pull the leash very hard when walking him in the neighborhood; however, when I take him to the dog parks where everyone off-leash my dog doesn't bark at all and can play with other dogs well. This had been last for 3 years, and I don't see he is fear with other dogs in dog parks but only show aggression on sidewalk with the leash. I tried to correct him more than thousands of times to tell him to stop and look at me when he tried to bark, it just doesn't work. Now I almost want to give out my dog with this behaviour on him, please help? Thanks!

    My dog is very aggressive, with other dogs and people. She wouldn’t ever bite a person because she’s too scared she will just run away, but she does try to attack my cousins dog, now she doesn’t actually bite her, it’s more of a mouthing thing. But we are considering rescuing a dog, and we really want them to get along. She’s a sweet girl to her family but she lunges and barks at strangers and other dogs, besides her sister and my grandmas dog. She will be two in June and she is a cocker spaniel. Can someone please help me? ?
