Aggression in Pets
A pet that displays signs of aggressive behaviour can be very alarming. Many owners tear their hair out trying to control their errant animals while at the same time trying desperately to find a reason for their behaviour.
Although humans find aggression unacceptable, the following situations elicit normal aggressive reactions in animals:
establishment of leadership amongst male animals
the hunting instinct
discipline of young animals by their parents
Although some breeds are definitely more aggressive than others, experts say there are usually underlying reasons for aggressive behaviour such as fear, insecurity, stress, problems relating to breeding, jealousy, past abuse, illness and pain.
Aggressive behaviour can be limited to specific situations such as the dog that barks or attacks the postman - or it can be unpredictable, which is even more worrying. This is particularly alarming when young children share the home with an unpredictable animal or when guests are exposed to an aggressive pet.
Aggressive behaviour in dogs can include biting, barking, snarling, snapping and raised fur along the back of the neck and along the ridge of the spine.
Aggression in cats can include scratching, biting, excessive yowling, lungeing, hissing, spitting and destructive behaviour.
Ideally all the inhabitants of a home – even the furry variety – should live side by side in harmony.
The Natural Way
If you have an aggressive pet, there is a lot that can be done at home to help lessen the unruly behavior. Firstly, it’s a good idea to take your pet for a check up – pain on your pet’s body can cause it to be grumpy and act out. If your pet becomes aggressive towards other animals while walking, try giving it treats when another animal approaches, then stop when the other animal has passed. This way your pet will associate good things with other animals.
If cats or dogs get very aggressive, spray with a plant mister bottle – but always follow up with positive reinforcement. Never hit your pets for being aggressive – this will only make the bad behavior worse! If your pets get into a fight with other animals, never yell – your pet will take your shouting as a sign that you are encouraging them, and will keep fighting! Rather, honk a hand held horn, beat on a frying pan with a stick or turn the hosepipe on them. Never use your hands to separate fighting dogs – you could get seriously bitten.
A note on aggressive pets and children:
If an animal shows signs of being dangerously aggressive towards babies and children keep your dog separated from them at all times, and consult an animal behaviorist for coping tips. Again, use treats to associate good things with the baby or child. Make sure your pet’s lead is strong enough (so as not to break) when you are walking him or her in public, and wrap the lead around your arm a few times for better grip. If your pet is extremely aggressive, you may want to carry pepper spray in the event of your pet getting loose and attacking someone. However, for very aggressive pets, it is best not to take them out in public unless they have a muzzle on.

How has Aggression Formula helped others?
"Our little Maltese can be such a sweetheart but he is very jealous and will not allow anyone near us without growling and will bite with very sharp teeth if anyone else tries to pet him. Your Aggression Formula has done wonders. I won't say that he loves other people more, but just that he is more relaxed and does not bite anymore. He may have a bit of a growl, but it is more like a grumble and he does not attack, which is a big relief! Now I can have friends again!"
"I have never seen a problem like my cat had with any other cat. She would pounce on your legs, wrap her paws around and sink her teeth in while kicking and scratching fiercely with her back legs - really hurting! Nothing seemed to help but she has calmed down and become more laid back in a very short time. Thank you for a great product that I can recommend to anyone!"
"I have two young male dogs, both adolescents that are close to killing each other and any other male dog around. This has made it impossible to go for walks without stress and I had just about given up before trying your Aggression Formula. We were recommended a tranquilizer which I was very hesitant to try and thought I would try this first, with very good results. The best is that they are still happy and bouncy and not drugged, which I wanted to avoid."

An aggressive pet is an unpredictable pet and no two animals will respond the same way to a particular remedy. Any dog that has attacked another dog or shown aggression towards a human is a risk. An overtly aggressive pet should be assessed by a qualified pet behaviourist and appropriate measures taken to control the aggressive behaviour. Aggression Formula is best used in conjunction with advice from an animal behaviourist.
Remember, a dog that wags its tail is not always a friendly dog, likewise a purring cat might be purring because of stress. I’ve been bitten and scratched often enough to know that any unfamiliar dog or cat must be approached with care!!
Ensure that your children know how to handle pets. Encourage them to always ask before they pet an unknown dog or cat and to stay well away from any animal showing signs of aggression.
If your pet suddenly becomes aggressive and no reason can be found, please take him/her to your vet for a complete check up to make sure that there is not an underlying health problem (such as pain that is causing him or her discomfort)
Remove aggression triggers if possible. For example, if your dog is aggressive around food or bones, feed him on his own in a different room.
Keep aggressive animals away from small children even if they have never bitten anyone before.
Check for any recent changes in your pet's environment, which may have triggered his aggression, examples include a new baby or a job that keeps you away for longer periods than before.
Regular exercise is a good outlet for pent up emotions and will help to keep your pet healthy and fit. Remember to keep your dog on a lead at all times and consider investing in a muzzle if necessary.
Consult an animal behaviourist for insight into your pet's problem. Your vet should be able to put you in touch with a recognized behaviourist
Ensure your pet is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food (preferably organic).
