      TYPES OF DOG AGGRESSION

      Although different forms of dog aggression have been identified and neatly categorized below, the reality is dog aggression is not so neatly segregated. It is rare to see a dog with only one type of dog aggression, and an aggressive dog may also have other behavior problems.  This can sometimes complicate the diagnosis and treatment. [1].

      But more important than understanding the types of dog aggression is in understanding exactly what the dog’s triggers are, in other words, what sort of things cause him or her to react aggressively or to become anxious.  What are the sequence of events and circumstances that occur before the dog becomes aggressive?  Keeping detailed records may start to reveal a pattern.  Here are some more common types of dog aggression:

      Owner Directed or “Dominance” Aggression

      Fear Aggression

      Territorial/Protective Aggression

      Dog-on-dog Aggression – Related to Dominance

      Dog-on-dog Aggression – Related to Pack (Sibling)

      Dog-on-dog Aggression – Related to Fear

      Predatory Aggression

      Possessive Aggression

      Aggression Towards Babies or Children

      Redirected Aggression

      Food-Related Aggression

      Play Aggression

      Maternal Aggression

      Health Related Aggression

      Seizure Related Aggression

      Aggression influenced by Medications
