Beware of the Dog: Positive Solutions for Aggressive Dog Behavior is a new book by dog trainer Pat Miller, who explains what dog aggression is all about HERE on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show.
Miller says one problem is that we don’t quite get what our dogs are trying to communicate to us. She says, “Your dog is speaking to you all the time; remember to listen with your eyes.”
Often, by the time we figure out what a dog is signaling, the likely frustrated dog has upped the ante.
I ask Miller about what alpha dogs are, if they even exist. We also talk about resource guarding in a way you probably haven’t heard before.
This is part one of a fascinating conversation.
