In past articles, the question about whether dogs are aggressive by nature was answered. However, although it was possible to give a detailed explanation in this regard, it was still pending to talk about the most appropriate ways to deal with this aggressiveness.

For this reason, in this article we will give you a couple of tips that you can use to prevent your dog from attacking people, other animals, you and even hurting himself. With that said, let's move on to the topic at hand.

parenting is everything

The aggressiveness of a dog can be due to different factors, but it definitely does not occur by nature. The main root of this problem is usually the way the dog is raised. Although the Rottweiler, Pit Bull or Staffordshire Bull Terrier or Argentine Dogo breeds may be considered dangerous, what is certain is that they are not born aggressive.

A first step, perhaps the most important of all, is to guarantee a good upbringing for your dog. Educate him in the best way, always seeking positive reinforcement and avoiding resorting to violence, since when they are in the puppy stage all the behaviors and learning they acquire will be adopted for the rest of their lives, being extremely difficult to modify in the adult stage. .

Model to follow

Dogs are like children, so they often adopt certain behaviors or personality traits from their owners. This is because they are the closest reference they have when they are puppies and because they will be in constant interaction throughout their lives. If you don't want your dog to engage in aggressive behavior, avoid being aggressive towards your pet or around him, as he is likely to copy this behavior from you.

a good diet

Believe it or not, a balanced diet at the right times greatly influences the mood of dogs. It is not the same to have your pet eating good food three or four times a day than to feed it once or twice and poor quality food that what it does is send it to the bathroom constantly. Invest in food that is good for your dog and you will see that his mood will always be good.

safe environment

Finally, make sure that your dog does not feel in a hostile and uncomfortable environment. If your pet feels insecure and afraid at home or anywhere else, whether because of a very loud noise, that it has been hurt by objects around it or that it is near other hostile animals, it is very likely that it will react aggressively. Make your home comfortable and safe for your dog and avoid, if possible, places where you have seen your dog feel uncomfortable in any way.

We hope that these tips will be of great help to you. Most are preventive measures to avoid having an aggressive dog.
