Can an aggressive dog be cured?

Can an aggressive dog be cured?

Canine aggression can be difficult to understand, but it’s important that you know it’s not an issue of disobedience. Aggressive reactions are often a response to something in the dog’s environment, whether in the present or the past, that elicits a surge of strong feelings. They are not trying to be mean, but these fear or frustration reactions are still not appropriate in the vast majority of cases.

“It’s important to keep in mind that there is no such thing as a cure for aggression,” “Aggressive behaviors are managed and reduced through proper treatment with a veterinary behavioral professional.” So, while aggression won’t just go away with a special pill or diet, it can be improved over time with practice, patience, and love.
