Submission and then Aggression

by Ernestine
(Alexandria, VA USA)

My 8yr Rottie, is not aggressive to me but others, they will call him and he will walk over to them, head lowered very submissive, he will let them pet him and then he become very aggressive towards them and will bite if they don't avoid him. I don't understand this behavior nor do I know how to stop it.

Get A Muzzle
by: Adam G. Katz

Here's what I advise:

1. Get a muzzle.

2. Teach the dog obedience exercises, so that he learns he must hold a sit-stay and down-stay, regardless of distractions.

3. Make him hold these commands (gradually) around more stimulating environments. If he shows aggression, correct him back into the sit-position. All while you're working with him or in public, he should be wearing the muzzle until you get him so that he's not longer showing the aggression.

4. Work boundary training exercises, which will quickly teach him what "No" means.

5 Use the "No" command if he shows any aggression.

Right now, he either doesn't understand what "No!" means; Or he doesn't trust that you'll keep him safe.
