What does "arousal" have to do with aggressive behaviors in dogs? In some cases, arousal can be the catalyst for an intense, aggressive response, sometimes redirected at something a dog may not even be focused on. We may also see cases where a dog in a highly aroused state spill over into aggressive behavior. Michael Shikashio CDBC will first define this sometimes-controversial topic, and discuss why it is crucial to consider arousal as a factor in aggression cases. Prevention, management, and behavior change strategies will be highlighted!
