Fear Aggression How to Tell if Your Dog’s Got it

So, how do you tell if a dog is displaying fear aggression when he see’s you because he’s afraid? How does the fear aggressive dog tell you that he’s afraid of you ?

Will the fear aggressive dog, bark ferociously at you ? YES

Will a fear aggressive dog, growl at you ? YES

Will the fear aggressive dog, lunge at you while tied or on a leash ? YES

Will the fear aggressive dog, snap at you ? YES

Will the fear aggressive dog, try to bite you ? YES

Will the fear aggressive dog, act like a maniac in a car ? YES

Will the fear aggressive dog, bark and try to chase you ? YES

Many people believe that a dog that reacts in any of the above mentioned scenarios, is an aggressive, bad or dangerous dog. They would be wrong.

Fear aggressive dogs can also display their nervousness by :

Standing or sitting quietly.

Not looking at you or avoiding your eye contact. ( And NO, this has nothing to do with dominance)

In general a nervous or fear aggressive dog can also display their nervousness by NOT acting aggressively. What you want to look for is stiffness in their body and a closed mouth. That’s the easy stuff to notice, what may be a little more difficult to notice is the fear in their eyes.
