Dog Aggression Towards Other Dogs

Have you ever seen dogs being aggressive toward one another? You realize exactly how disturbing dog-on-dog aggression may be. Aggression between dogs are displayed by growling, snarling, snapping, biting and even outright fights that could cause significant injuries for the dogs.

Dog-on-dog aggression is almost always the result of inadequate socialization while your pet dog is young. Socialization is the procedure by which your dog learns how it can appropriately communicate and act with others. It offers the key to preventing your pet from being aggressive toward other dogs throughout her lifetime.

The socialization process involves exposing your pet to as many other dogs as possible. It is important that your pet meet, mingle, play with and simply be around a large number of dogs of all sizes and ages. This exposure to other dogs is what teaches your puppy the difference between neutral or positive interactions and behaviors which are truly threatening. Without a proper comprehension of this difference, it’s easy for the dog to misinterpret another dog’s behavior.
