Aggression in Dogs - Practical Management, Prevention and Behaviour Modification

by Brenda Aloff

Starting with prevention, the reader learns about common mistakes owners make that promote aggression in their dog, and how to avoid these mistakes. In the behavior modification section, they learn about how to build trust with the dog, using positive reinforcement.  Brenda shows how to achieve this level of trust with hundreds of exercises to promote appropriate behaviour and modify inappropriate behaviour. In the practical management section, the reader is prepared for a lifelong regimen of keeping their dog safe.

Brenda, who specialises in problem behaviour, believes that dogs display aggression because they are uneducated, and, for whatever reason, never learned how to communicate in an appropriate and effective manner to humans and /or other dogs. The author feels that by educating aggressive dogs, and teaching them new ways of behaving in social situations, they can be helped. But, she cautions, these dogs are best worked with positive methods, which is the book's focus.

Written for the owner of a problem dog, the book explores theory and offers step-by-step protocols, real nuts-and bolts, roll-up-your sleeves stuff, as she puts it, that is field-proven in modifying aggressive behaviour in dogs. Aloff helps the reader understand aggression in dogs and canine communication. She discusses types of aggression, learning theory, equipment, management, and damage control. She gets into the specific procedures and detailed instructions for dealing with aggression. The techniques are illustrated with instructional photographs. The book ends with 20 pages of real-life case studies of aggression. This book could be a lifeline to the owner of an aggressive dog. Aloff is a clear and patient communicator and the encyclopedic book is full of information. While the price tag may seem steep, the book is large 8 ½ inches with more than 400 pages. The committed owner of an aggressive dog will find it money well spent.
