Agression spontaneously in my 18 month cockapoo
by: Anonymous

I just had my cockapoo ti the pet store a place he has been many times. He is a bit over 18 months and very friendly with other dog. Today he was initially fine with the 4 month old frenchie and then all of a sudden he went after the puppy. After he had calmed another lady came in with a poodle a little bit bigger than him and not sure of the age. After a few seconds of sniffing he went off on the poodle.

I love this puppy and have had dogs all my life and will deal with poop pee destructive behavior but not aggression . This is the only thing I find that is unacceptable for me.

Please if you can direct me to some reading material I would be most appreciative.
Best,

Rudy's mom

Here's How To Stop a Cockapoo From Being Aggressive
by: Adam

Hi, Beth:

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
