Any dog that shows aggression toward people can be a potential threat to the public. Dogs, especially large dogs, can do serious injury to humans. If you have a dog that shows aggression towards people, you have a duty to change the dog’s behavior or you risk not only harm to another person but also potential legal and possibly criminal liability yourself.
Of course, it can’t be emphasized enough how important this is. If you really want your dog to take notice of anything that you say or do, you first have to establish yourself as the Pack Leader.
Convincing your dog that you are the pack leader does not mean you have to shout or be aggressive. It’s all about giving your dog the right messages so that it understands you make the decisions, and it should pay attention to everything you say!
In this video, Dan demonstrates how to control an aggressive dog.
