Teaching a Pair of Boxers to Focus on Their Humans Instead of Reacting to Dogs

For this Omaha dog training session we helped a pair of Boxer siblings; Macie (left) and Max, teaching them to focus to stop Maci’s dog aggression problem.

Teaching a dog to focus on you is a wonderful way to start the process of helping stop dog aggression. Redirecting he dog’s attention away from something it doesn’t like when the thing is far enough away is the starting point to helping a dog stop acting aggressive to other dogs. You dont have to be a professional Boxer dog trainer to do this exercise as Hunter shows in the above free positive dog training video.

While training a dog to focus will be a powerful tool to stop aggressive behavior before it starts, as Omaha’s dog behavior expert I knew we needed to treat the fundamental reason that caused Maci to act aggressive to other dogs.

We spent a good portion of this in home Omaha dog training session going over how to establish a healthy leader follower dynamic, the importance of good consistent communication, increasing exercise and how to use structure to boost the dog’s confidence and respect for their humans.

To help the guardians remember all the dog psychology tips we went over, we shot a roadmap to success video summarizing the session.
