2. Know what motivates your dog. Most dogs are food motivated. And even if they’re not food motivated, most dogs will respond to treats. Treats are great for fear aggressive dogs, as rewards like affection and play may be too much for them to handle just yet. But if you find something else that motivates your dog better, go for it!
3. Create a “safe space” for your dog. For most dogs, a crate is fine for this, or a closed off room away from what’s making them fearful. No matter what it is, they need a place to go if it becomes too much for them to handle. This makes them feel secure and more confident
“This makes them feel secure and more confident.”
5. Be consistent. This means that everyone actively involved with your dog needs to be on the same page with you and follow the rules you make for your dog. This is extremely important, because inconsistent training can completely undermine what you’re trying to do.
