You may also benefit from teaching your dog how to calm down. Some dogs, just like some people, are wound a little tight. They react to any adverse stimulus by becoming aggressive, which can actually lead to even more stress for the dog. Your goal as an owner should be to reward your dog's calm behavior whenever possible. If your dog fails to react to a stimulus that would generally cause an aggressive reaction, praise them. If your dog manages to avoid growling when they see another dog, for example, it might be time for a treat. Anything you can do to reinforce the idea calm behavior is worth pursuing will help your pet. Try to reward calm behavior whenever you can for the best results.
