Aggression in dogs is cause for concern in many dog owners. Aggression is defined as the threat of harm to another individual involving snarling, growling, snapping, biting, barking or lunging. Understanding the contributing factors in aggression can often help in the treatment of aggression.
One of the most common complaints of pet parents is that their dogs are disruptive or destructive when left alone. Their dogs might urinate, defecate, bark, howl, chew, dig or try to escape. Although these problems often indicate that a dog needs to be taught polite house manners, they can also be symptoms of distress.
These behaviors are exaggerations of normal dog behaviors. They're exhibited for longer than expected periods of time, are repeated out of context, and in situations in which they would be considered abnormal. Common dog behaviors which can be classified as compulsive are spinning, tail chasing, fly biting, barking, or chewing
Shy & Nervous Behaviors
Shy or fearful behavior is easy to recognize in dogs who move away, hide, or tremble when a stranger approaches. But fear can show itself in a variety of other behaviors, too. ... Growling, barking, and other aggressive actions can also be triggered by fear.
Food or toy aggression
Possessive aggression is aggression that is directed toward humans or other pets that approach the dog when it is in possession of something that is highly desirable, such as a favorite chew toy, food, or treat.
Digging & chewing
Digging and chewing are natural, normal behaviors for dogs. They were born with the instinct for these behaviors – but that doesn’t mean you can’t redirect them. The key to preventing unwanted chewing and digging is to identify why your dog is doing it in the first place.
