1. Take Control
The first step is to take control of the situation. You do not want to let your dog run loose to chase after other dogs. Accidents may happen, and your dog may end up biting and fighting other dogs.
Use a leash and a muzzle if you are afraid. Play it safe and keep the situation in control.
If you know your dog will act aggressive towards other dogs, just take the prevention steps, leash your dog and apply the muzzle on. Just like how Dan did it in the video.
2. Read Your Dog’s Energy
This step is extremely important. You cannot stop dog aggression when your dog is in an aggressive state.
You must understand the dog’s behavior and energy state. If a dog is aggressive, he will be in high energy state where he is barking and ready to charge over.
Do what Doggy Dan did in the video. He clearly shows the dog’s posture and the tail are high. When a dog is in the aggressive mode, never let the dogs get together.
3. Give Your Dog Time
Patience is what you need here. Training a dog takes time, and the same goes for stopping dog aggression.
When your dog or the other dog is not ready, always walk away and give the dogs more time. Try to walk around with the aggressive dog, catch his attention elsewhere and try not to let the aggressive dog focuses on other dogs.
4. Parallel Walk
You want to get your dogs nearer to other dogs slowly. Use the parallel walk technique whereby you walk your aggressive dog in parallel with other dogs, just like what you see in the video.
Notice the body language of your aggressive dog. It is very important to note his body language because from there, your dog tells you a lot of things.
You don’t have to rush on this step. Just do it slowly and repeat walking around and slowly get closer with other dogs.
5. Let Loose
After 20 or 30 minutes, try to check on the dogs’ energy level. When you feel that it is time to let the dogs loose and play with each other without any aggression, do it.
You can start by using a longer leash and let the dogs run around and have fun. At the same time, notice their energy levels. If any of the dogs turns aggressive, pull him away and repeat all over again.
Usually, dogs will get along with each other pretty quickly when you apply the right technique.
If you look at how Doggy Dan did it, he only used around 20 minutes to stop the dog aggression and let the dogs loose to play with each other.
You can use these techniques to stop dog on dog aggression. It is very effective, and you have to understand that dogs are playful and friendly. They turn aggressive because they lack the social and they are just being defensive.
The best way to solve problematic dog behaviors and to train your dog is learning directly from a professional trainer. And this is what Doggy Dan has been doing for years.
