Do you need help with dog aggression?

Dogs display aggression in several ways:

  • Growling
  • Lunging
  • Baring teeth.

It’s very frustrating when your dog displays aggression.

If possible, try to find the cause or trigger of your dog’s aggression.

Some common causes of dog aggression are:

  • Illness
  • Fear
  • Resource guarding
  • Establishing dominance
  • Frustration.

Pinpointing the cause or trigger can help you manage dog aggression.

What Causes Dog Aggression?

Does your pup also experience occasional:

  • Lethargy, irritability, tension, depression, separation anxiety, territoriality, food and/or fear aggression?
  • Loose stools, reduced appetite, digestive disharmonies?
  • Dry eyes, skin or coat?

If so, they may benefit from taking an all natural supplement.

Some pets will need training with a certified pet trainer.

Firstly, dominance aggression may be harder to handle than fear aggression.

Secondly, aggressive dogs may be dangerous and should be handled with care.

Thirdly, a combination of dog training and herbal supplementation may be the most overall beneficial solution for some dogs.

Fear Aggression

Firstly, if a dog feels threatened, they may exhibit fear aggression.

This describes how a dog acts towards people, other animals, or objects.

Secondly, a fearful dog may use their behavior to drive a threat away, creating space between themselves and what they’re afraid of.

Food Aggression

Food aggression is born of insecurity. To correct the behavior, gain your pet’s trust. Offer him food or treats from your hand. Make him sit when you place his food down. Remain near the food bowl, not touching the dog, showing him that you won’t interfere with his food.

According to some studies, food aggression is incredibly common in dogs.

In fact, nearly 20 percent of dogs exhibit some form of food aggression.

This behavior describes when dogs use hostile behavior to guard their food.


Consult your veterinarian if your pup is expressing irritability, as this is often a sign of pain in dogs.
