My dog is scared of children or doesn't like them, she is very agressive and tries to attack them, it is horrifying! I don't know why she is like it, but can u offer any advise?
Nine times out of ten it is usually anxiety or protection instincts that fuels a dog towards aggression, not aggression itself. What many people don't realise is that If your dog is the pack leader and you allow him to walk in front of you then he wil most defintely become protective of you. In the wild, one of the canine pack leaders jobs is to protect the rest of the pack and even though your dog is a domestic one they still have these natural instincts.
This situation is very dangerous for you, your dog and others who come into contact with your dog so it is important that you take control and allow your dog to see you as her pack leader.
- Before putting the lead on, leaving your home, getting in and out the car and any changes one the walk make sure your dog is in a calm, submissive state. Many people think that when their dog is jumping around they are simply excited and it is harmless - this is not the case! Excitement can cause problems on the walk and eventually lead to aggression.
- Place the lead at the top of the neck near the ears and guide your dog to walk beside you. If he begins to walk ahead tug the lead towards you quickly and then relax the lead again, this will snap her brain out of excitement and will also tell her that you want her to walk beside you. You can use this same technique with aggression.
- REMAIN CALM ASSERTIVE! This is the most important rule - an effective pack leader whether it is human or canine always projects calm assertive energy - they do not get angry, upset, frustrated or anything else other than calm assertive energy. If you do not remain calm assertive your dog will pick up on this and see you as an unstable leader, they will then see it as their job to take over.
- A lot of excitement and frustration with dogs can be caused because of sexual urges. If your dog has not yet been spayed we highly recommend this! This will not only help her with her frustration but will help you to control and guide also!
Best wishes Mindy!

So often we hear people say, my dog is aggressive because he barks at other dogs. So quickly it is assumed that barking from dog to dog is aggressive, however this is not always the case.
If your dog barks at other dogs this is not always a sign of aggression, even though it may look and feel like it. Often, 99% of the time it is simply anxiety as a result of lack of socialisation with other dogs and/or an unstable pack leader.
IS IT ME OR THE DOG?
If you are projecting anything or than calm, assertive energy whilst on the walk your dog will pick up on this and feel the same energy. If you are anxious on the walk, so will your dog be.
In other posts we have mentioned the importance of having calm assertive energy, we mention it in every post, multiple times because it really is so important. Unlike humans dogs are very intuitive and their main form of communication is through energy. When dogs are born they are born with their noses open, fifteen days later, they open their eyes and twenty one days later they open their ears. In the same way that humans communicate by language, dogs communicate by scent (energy). If you are pretending to be calm assertive on the outside but inside are super fearful and anxious your dog will know because this is their strongest instinct - before sight!
"I'll believe it if I see it for humans translates into i'll believe it if I smell it for dogs."
Next time you walk your dog take notice to how you feel. Remember you can't trick your dog!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
