Aggressive Dog Causes and Solutions
by Charles Heflin
It’s never been as common as now—the fact that dogs are attacking people, causing horrific injuries that sometimes lead to death.
There are three undeniable facts that pertain to dogs:
First, that nearly all dogs have an inherent protective instinct;
Second, that though each dog is born with a definite temperament, it can be changed and molded by training and environment;
Third, dog and master develop a strong bond very soon into their relationship
which goes on to give the dog a sixth sense – one that includes knowing his master’s likes and dislikes.
This is why calm and mild tempered people have dogs of a similar nature while nervous and bad tempered people have dogs that mirror their personalities. In fact, a dog can also pick up a pet owner’s prejudices against race or class. Like us, dogs too can err. Sometimes, they
misinterpret an action or fail to recognize a person and attack him out of the blue.
