Dog aggression is his way of communicating his personality, and you can get a handle on his aggression, however it does require training. If you decide training your dog yourself is the way to go, then you must have patience with your dog. This will take time and patience on your part, and remember that dogs are not instant like we are. They move at their own pace.
Here are a couple of tips for you to keep in mind while you are learning how to stop dog aggression toward other dogs:
- Don't take your dog to places where there will be a lot of other dogs that your dog does not know
- If your dog gets attacked by another dog, removed him from the situation immediately
- Don't use physical force as punishment-this will frighten them more
- Taking a detached attitude with your dog-let them know you are boss
When you learn how to distract your dog's aggressiveness, you cool down the situation, then you can simply walk away from a situation that might other wise be trauma for you and your dog. It is always a must that you give your dog a reward when he has calmed down. A typical reward would be some kind of food that is a treat for your dog. After time, he will start picking up that if he does this or that, he gets a treat, and that could be his motivation, consistency in this department will determine your success.
