Dog aggression is a very serious problem, not only for the family that owns the dog but also for society in general. It is a complex, dangerous situation and needs to be corrected without delay.
Most dog trainers don't understand aggression. Some are afraid of aggressive dogs and will tell the owner to destroy the dog so the trainer doesn't have to deal with the problem. Based on my personal;training experience, I have only had to recommend that two dogs be put down.
TnT K-9 Concepts specializes in this field and
has some strong views on this subject. The vast majority of aggression is caused by you
the owner. It is highly likely bites will occur to the
owner within the home, and children are often involved.

|Brandy J. M Oliver, MA, states that if a dog has bitten someone, and especially
if he has drawn blood, he has a much greater chance of repeating this action. THIS IS NOT CORRECT. It is
incredible how many dogs are destroyed every year because the dog has bitten someone. Don't get me wrong... it is a serious offence and
deserves to be corrected, but the behaviours can be solved without destroying the dog.
Aggressive behaviour can be controlled through proper consultation and training techniques. Veterinarians are NOT trainers, and should not be consulted in cases of aggressive behaviour. Most Veterinarians are NOT behaviour specialists.
Muzzles don't stop aggression!
In many cases this only adds to the aggressive
behaviour. SOME trainers with little experience are
not specialists. They simply have not been around enough dogs to get a good overall
judgement of how to treat aggressive behaviour.
