its role in your pack if it decides that the pack has no leader. In other words the dog’s aggression may be more
related to the owner than the dog itself.

socialized. A way to prevent that is to obviously get your dog to play with other dogs from puppyhood. There may
also be position aggression. That is one of the most difficult cases to treat because the dog becomes obsessed with
an item or even you as the owner.

of a professional in order to treat cases of aggression. They are better trained to deal with dog aggression issues than the average owner. Understanding the reason for the
aggression puts you on a better position to control and eliminate the behavior.
