Last week I gave some tips on determining if your dog is feeling fear (defensive behavior). This week I am going to focus on offensive behavior. Offensive behavior is when the dog wants to move forward and is generally more likely to want to attack immediately. Generally when a dog is offensive we call him / her aggressive.
Today I am going to focus on offensive behavior. Begin to notice the signs below:
The more of the above signs you see in your dog the more your dog is feeling offensive. If you are seeing only a few signs then the offensive behavior is present and it is of a lesser degree.
If your dog is feeling offensive in certain situations my advise is to contact Four Legged Scholars so we can switch the response to happiness / calm behavior:)
Also remember any dog that feels offensive is likely to bite.
