An effective behavior change strategy in any behavior case often includes assessing the external factors in the environment, such as the antecedents and conditions that precede the behaviors. In aggression cases, it can be paramount for successful outcomes to properly recognize and address the underlying motivations and emotional responses in a dog that displays aggressive behavior. In this session, aggression specialist Michael Shikashio CDBC will be highlighting how to determine what emotions may be in play when a dog shows aggression, and what we can do to help. Learning Objectives Identify contexts and behaviors that can indicate certain underlying motivations and emotional responses in dogs displaying aggression. Review the body language of dogs in a variety of emotional states. Understand physiological factors that can impact the intensity of aggressive behaviors.
