Dog Dominance Training in Westchester & Putnam CountiesSome dogs challenge their owners for dominance in the household. A dominant dog may exhibit aggressive behavior such as staring, barking, growling, snapping or even biting when you give him a command or ask him to give up a toy, treat or resting place. Sometimes even hugging, petting or grooming can be interpreted as gestures of dominance and, therefore, provoke a growl or snap. This is true even if your dog is normally very affectionate and often solicits petting and attention from you.
For your home to be a safe and happy place for pets and people, it’s best that the humans in the household assume the highest positions in the dominance hierarchy, particularly with dominant dogs.
