Lead Aggression

Lead aggression normally stems from a certain trigger or a bad experience. When a dog feels threatened by something, the first and safest option for the dog is to run away from the threat. This is called the ‘flight response.’ If the dog is unable to distance themselves between them and the threat, the only other options left are to either submit in the hope the threat goes away, or fight – the ‘fight response.’

It is my job to evaluate your dog to get to the reason for the aggression. Dogs use fight or flight mode and often feel trapped if attached to a lead. Some simple training techniques will help by giving you the tools to correct any problem behaviour positively.

I can solve all aspects of problem dog behaviour including chewing, puppy, command and clicker training as well as all of the above!
