Can puppies be aggressive and learn aggressive behavior? Absolutely. I see this in my private training sessions every day. But Colter here is part Wolf and German Shepherd. At only four months old he was highly aggressive and ready to eat me when I stepped inside the gate.
He was growling viciously and biting his owners. His food aggression was over the top. And he was constantly jumping up.
This picture was taken at the end of our one hour training session. His owners kept asking, “Wow, is this even the same dog.”
By the end of the hour, he was kissing our hands instead of biting, playing instead of viciously growling, learning to sit politely and be petted, and taking food a lot more nicely.
Keeping It Positive
At Positive Engagements we’re all about keeping it real, simple and positive. Our methods are gentle, but firm and we use positive reinforcements and rewards to encourage good behaviors. We teach owners how to discipline appropriately in a gentle manner, so that the dog never feels bad, but is able to recover quickly and overcome any bad behaviors and learn to be obedient. We do a full evaluation on each and every dog prior to beginning any training, to be sure we are approaching training the best way possible for that specific dog.
