Q&A on Fear Aggression
When my dog gets scared, he bites. We've trained him, but we can't make up for his first two years of abuse. What if we removed some/all of his teeth?
My dog became spooked by a judge at a show and is now fear aggressive towards all men. Can this be fixed? Will any of your DVDs help?

When people get within 3-5 feet of my 7 month old pup she gets worried. She gets behind me, gets her hair up and makes noise. How do I get her to be ok around strangers?
I have a GSD who can be quite reactive when on-leash and who tends to ‘check out’ on walks. I’m wondering whether a prong collar would help with this kind of behavior?
My dog is afraid of dogs larger than her or if they look a certain way. Could her fear be attributed to a possible negative experience in her past? Is there anything we can do to help this?
My dog has suddenly become fearful, he is so fearful now that just taking him out to go potty is a hassle. He tries to back out of his collar and run away. Do you have any suggestions?
My dog gets so hyped up and anxious around people that she loses all focus and doesn't follow commands. Do you think I should just not take her anywhere for a period of time and start over? I don’t know what else to do.
Our dog is frightened of everything - us when we carry things or change how we look, things out of place, etc. Do you have any advice for us?

My dog is extremely afraid of my dad. He will not sit in the same room as my father and he will pace around the house watching to see were he is. What should I do?
I have a 1-year-old large Munsterlander, who shows way too many signs of aggression. We LOVE him but his aggression is awful. Any advice would be wonderful!
My dog has been fear biting ever since an incident while traveling by plane. I don't want to do anything that will cause more damage, what do you suggest?
Is there hope for my shy dog?
At this point in my dog's life, I am unsure if I should continue trying to socialize her and get her used to strangers and not be so afraid. What is your advice?
When my dog was a pup, she had an accident with a horse so we were unable to socialize her properly. Now we are having issues with strangers. Any suggestions?
My dog went through a complete personality change after she was spayed. I am wondering if you think she is a fear biter and should be put to sleep?
My 5 month old Shar Pei is not very social with me and my vet thinks I am going to have problems with him when he gets older. What do you think?
I had to put my dog to sleep today. He had bitten several people. It was a very difficult decision to make.
