Preventing Aggression Between Dogs

Good Dogs! (03-06-2017) #6065: Gayle from Avidog International explains what a dog’s “prey drive” is — especially when re-directed at other dogs. The dog’s brain focuses only on the prey and they cannot see or hear you trying to stop them when their brain is filled with neuro-chemicals that feel good. Preventing aggression towards other dogs means “interrupting the hunt” right before it starts, right at the trigger point, to get the dog’s attention back on you.
