Interdog aggression (more commonly known as "dog aggression") is distinct from "handler aggression" in that the dog is aggressive toward other dogs, and this behavior may be completely devoid of handler aggression.
In all cases of interdog aggression, there will be physical signs-- although sometimes subtle-- of the aggression, before the dog acts.
This may include:
- Stiff and rigid body language.
- Pulling the mouth closed tightly.
- The dog may lock his gaze with the other dog.
- Curling of the upper lip.
- Lowering the head (in a stalking/hunting-like position)
- Dominant body language (a higher position than the other dog).
- Hackles up.
- Lips curled tightly against the teeth, and showing of the teeth.
