Boston Aggressive Dog Training: WE CAN DO IT!

There aren’t many dog trainers these days who feel confident handling aggressive dogs. If you’ve been hesitant to hire a dog trainer because of your dog’s aggressive behavior, look no further!

Aggressive dogs are frequently misunderstood. From the owner’s standpoint, aggression often seems random and meaningless. Many times, aggressive behavior is the result of a very anxious dog. Environmental factors are the most common contributors toward the underlying anxiety that causes aggressive behavior. Colonial Dog Training utilizes a thorough understanding of canine behavior in order to troubleshoot your dog’s behavior, and then create an aggressive dog training program that attacks the behavior at its source.

If your dog is showing any signs of aggressive behavior, it is important to get help quickly. Most aggression issues do not resolve on their own; in fact, many continue to get worse as time drags on. Consider that “training” is anything done repeatedly. If your dog is able to continually practice this aggressive behavior, it’s as if you’re training your dog to act that way!

Aggression can appear in many forms, including the following:

  • Human aggression (dog is aggressive toward people)
  • Dog aggression (dog acts aggressively toward other dogs)
  • Sibling aggression (dog is aggressive with littermates)
  • Food aggression / resource guarding (dog is “possessive” over food, toys, people, space, etc.)
  • Territorial aggression (dog “guards” his territory with aggressive behavior)


Behavior Change is Possible!

When we come to your home to assess your dog, we’ll take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of everyone involved. We’ll talk with you at length to make sure we understand the details of your dog’s aggressive behavior. As professionals, we will be up-front and realistic in our assessment of your dog. We’ll detail our observations and plans, including the cause of the aggressive behavior and what we’ll do to overcome it (the methods we’ll use, the time it will take, the effort that will be involved, etc.).

This initial behavior consultation carries no obligation to commit to training with us, but you’ll be surprised at how much you learn, and how often we can resolve aggressive behavior! If you do like what you hear, we’ll then commit to working with you until we achieve ALL of your dog training goals.
