Aggressive Dog Training Programs
There are steps on how to approach an aggressive dog and address the issue at home. But the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals advises that the safest and most effective way is to use behavior modification that should be supervised by a qualified dog trainer.
Off Leash K9 of Columbus acknowledges that it can be quite a struggle to deal with an aggressive dog. To help dog owners manage this challenging behavior, OLK9 designed the Aggression/Anxiety program, an 8-week intensive aggressive dog training program to help manage your dog and minimize reactivity of his aggressive behavior.
Each of the lessons has a specific goal. The Basic Obedience lesson aims to establish a firm foundation between you and your dog. With this lesson, a dog is expected to be calmer and more behaved off-leash, ready to listen to commands. But for aggressive dog cases, the goal is to ensure that you can effectively communicate with your dog. Doing so will also help you understand your dog better, creating a bond borne out of trust and mutual respect.
In the second half of the Aggressive/Anxiety program, the goal is to minimize the reactivity of aggression and anxiety. Based on initial evaluation of behavioral signs and patterns, our dog trainer will design a customized workaround addressing your dog’s triggers using various situations in different environments.
After the entire 8-week program, your dog will be more obedient and calmer, equipped with the necessary tools and skills to lessen reactivity. At most, your dog’s aggressive behavior will significantly improve.
