K9aggression.com was started by a number of dog owners who searched long and hard for that glimmer of hope for our aggressive dogs. Back then, before the internet became a source of information, you looked up a dog trainer in the phone book and trusted that when they said they could help, they could.
What we didn’t know at the time, was that anyone could call themselves a dog trainer or an expert in treating dog aggression and could be very convincing that they could help. Then if what they didn’t recommend didn’t work, they would declare that your dog needed to be euthanized. What we didn’t know is that many of the old-school training methods that are still being recommended today by some trainers to control problem behavior can potentially make dog aggression not only worse, but potentially more dangerous in the long run.
How does the typical dog owner know if they are getting the right advice? What was the right advice? That question led some of us, such as the author of the e-book w offer, to do the deep dive into scientifically peer-reviewed research for the real answers to sort through what was actually helpful versus what was unhelpful and potentially even dangerous.
The site was initially developed so that others could benefit from the numerous challenges and pitfalls that we experienced from finding a reputable expert to help to how to manage your dog on a day-to-day basis.
Along the way, we met more fantastic, caring and smart dog owners who are keeping the community of support alive.
K9aggression.com as an organization is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of aggressive dogs, their owners and those around them. By providing education, inspiration and support through online communication we hope to promote responsibility, action, and understanding.
