As we know, many dog lovers are ignorant about what aggression is and is not. They don't understand that temperament and early experience can have a strong influence on all dog behavior, including aggression, and it's our job to help them differentiate between types and address possible modification techniques. The earlier we can analyze what is causing the behavior, the more effective our intervention can be. During this discussion, we will evaluate video examples of the principal types of aggression, as well as some subsets. As the session progresses, we can address behavior modification of individual types. These include: Dominance aggression; Territorial aggression; Conflict aggression; Excessive arousal; Predatory behavior; Facilitated aggression; Possession aggression.
