How to Stop a Dog from Snapping at Other Dogs
Dogs are adorable, loyal creatures with a big heart. They’re always ready to play and have fun, but they can also be very territorial when it comes to what they perceive as “their” space, particularly when another dog is involved.
What should you do then? Obviously we can’t go through life with our dog just accepting that every walk or trip outdoors is a potential fight. How do we stop this aggressive behavior from your dog?
Keep reading and we’ll cover everything you need to know about how to stop a dog from snapping at other dogs!
Why is My Dog Being Aggressive Towards My Other Dogs?
Your dog is being aggressive towards your other dogs because the power dynamic in your household is not clear. Your dog doesn’t see any clear leader in the home, so they feel it is their duty to take over and protect the pack.
Your other dogs will challenge this order of power at times, which hopefully will be limited to nothing more than snapping and growling. But if not addressed immediately, this could soon lead to dog fights within your home.
Why is My Dog Being Aggressive Towards Other Dogs?
Left completely unchecked, your dog’s aggression may grow to the point that they become aggressive towards other dogs. That’s because once you’ve allowed them to believe they’re the unquestioned protector of the home, they’ll feel it’s their duty at all times.
Your daily walk quickly becomes a security patrol for them. They’re constantly searching and scanning, looking for other dogs that they need to protect you and your other dogs from. And the second another dog comes close, they lash out and snap to warn them to stay away!
If you fail to address this dangerous misbehavior properly, that snapping could soon become actual dog fights leading to painful injuries for you, your dog, or another person’s dog.
How Do I Get My Dog to Stop Snapping at Other Dogs?
