Positive Answers for the Aggressive Dog. The dog that bites. The dog that attacks other dogs. The dog who may not survive his own aggressive behavior. What can be done to help these dogs? When Emma Parsons, canine behavior consultant, discovered that her own dog was aggressive, she developed innovative and effective strategies to calm, alter, and re-shape his reactive displays, and those of her clients' dogs.

* desensitize your dog to approaching strange dogs
* grab your dog's collar without getting bitten
* teach dogs to perform canine calming signals on cue
* use your own body language when under stress as a cue for your dog to remain calm

3.0 out of 5 stars Insightful Nov. 14 2009
A great manual on how clicker training could help to save the average aggressive dog. There are some dogs that clicker training will help, while others will need a more balanced and holistic rehabilitative approach. Dog aggression only occurs when there is a perceived threat, and nearly always, multiple factors contribute to the aggressive reaction. There are things we can do to to reduce or eliminate the perception of threat right at the beginning of the behaviour, and I wish these topics had been covered. An ounce of prevention.... Certainly provides a much safer and more sensible approach to helping dogs and their guardians to develop better habits than many other books that are available. Aversive approaches to aggression can only make a dog feel insecure and this will lead to greater difficulties down the road.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book March 3 2012
I got this Book about a week ago. It works really well. my dog is very fearful and clicker training is working very well with him. I Hope to be able to go around other dogs in the future. So far the my dogs' barking and growling has started to lessen around other dogs and people, and I can also distract him easier. The excerises help a lot with a hipper dog which my dog is. The book is very easy to read and is not boring and does not sound preachy which some other books do.I would recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative April 27 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read many dog training books over the last year. When we adopted a puppy, I was worried I would make a mistake so I started reading everything I could about training. I am sure I have made a lot of mistakes along the way! Our puppy is now one and has been socialized to everything and everyone. But he can be "bossy" at times, to dogs and to some people, like men who have rough housed with him (my dog loves it). So I read this book to see if I could prevent any further bossiness or it turning into aggression. I absolutely love Emma Parson simple but effective suggestions and have applied them with great success. This book is clear and to the point. He is rarely bossy (he used to demand attention from my husband by barking at him) and listens very well to instructions from all family members. I have tried many different training methods along the way with my previous dogs: Caser's methods, with treats, without treats with more physical force , etc, and I have found that my golden responds the best with clicker training. It's a highly intelligent way to train dogs, and, from my experience, highly effective if done properly. But I know every dog is different, and the training needs to be adapted to each individual dog.
