How to Stop Aggressive Chihuahua Behavior
by: Anonymous

Hi, Brittany:

You'll need to start by asking yourself two questions:

1. Does the dog understand that the dog aggression is unwanted behavior?

and

2. If he understand that he shouldn't be aggressive, then he's choosing to ignore me. In which case, you have a respect issue.

For starters: Avoid the dog parks. They are a creation of humans who do not understand basic canine behavior. You have no control over the other dogs, and usually-- neither dog the owners of those dogs.

Especially during the initial training phase, you need to be 100% in control of the outcome, and having 100 other dogs running around you off-leash does not help the matter.

Second: Get a small (or mini) prong collar and a six foot leather leash and learn how to correct your dog in a safe and humane manner. I can guarantee that you'll see an almost immediate, dramatic improvement. Check out DogProblems.com to learn more. (You can click on the banner, at right).

And finally: Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.

All the best,
Adam
