Dogs are generally great pets; they are loyal, loving, affectionate and cuddly. Unfortunately, some dogs tend to be more aggressive than others. They growl, snap and bark at things that other dogs would not react to.
An aggressive dog is a dog that is much more likely to bite a person or another pet. Dog bites in Milwaukee can be serious and can cause disfiguring scar injuries, infections, and other complications.
It can be difficult for a dog owner to deal with an aggressive dog. His dog just turned out to be something other than the gentle companion animal he expected. A dog owner can become overwhelmed with the stress and anxiety trying to keep the dog under control.
Many times, owners of aggressive dogs give up and end up getting rid of their pet. Before giving up on a dog, it is important to know that with the right course of treatment, a dog can recover from its aggressive ways. Some ways to curve aggression in a dog is:
- Veterinarian treatment. Sometimes a dog that is expressing aggression has another underlying problem. A veterinarian will complete a thorough checkup that may result in finding an undetected issue.
- Behavior modification training. For the best results using this method, it is important to use a professional trainer. The trainer will identify what triggers the dog's aggression and work with both the owner and the dog to correct the aggression.
- Medication. Sometimes it is required for a dog to take medication, in conjunction with behavior modification, to help control aggressive behavior.
- Euthanasia. An incurable disease can cause aggression in dogs. Some dogs that were abused as puppies fail to respond to behavioral training. It is unfortunate, but sometimes a dog must be euthanized for human protection.
