Somewhat Aggressive Filla

I have a 2 year old Portuguese Filla. She is showing signs of aggression towards specific people, mainly the elderly. In my back yard she charges the fence whenever neighbors get close. She has nipped, never broken the skin but I want to nip this behavior in the bud before she gets any worse! I don't want to put her down she means as much to me as me 4 month old son does....any suggestions would be helpful

Stop Your Filla Aggression
by: Adam G. Katz


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

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


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

Get a 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 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,
