Aggression cases present a lot of challenges - and the first one is actually getting hands on the dog. After all, you can tell, tell, tell your clients what to do, but can you get them to actually follow directions? Are they already frightened and unable to safely interact with the dog? Using body language, posture, position, and movement you can establish a relationship with the dog that is based on trust and communication. Negotiation is way more successful than trying to "dominate" a dog - and gets you bitten less.
