Calming An Aggressive Animal Pet Step By Step

Sometimes, owning a pet can be as difficult as taking care of an unruly child. We know there are certain methods to help us remedy the problem, but finding what those are and trying to implement them correctly can be challenging. Not all of us are behavioural psychologists or therapists, nor does every step you might find online apply to your current situation.

In the case of aggressive animals, it can be very stressful to find a solution. Not only do you have to find something to help in a short space of time to prevent the behaviour from affecting your family members, but you must find something which works to completely resolve the problem from a fundamental level. This means trying to isolate triggers and behaviours to avoid them from cropping up again.

It takes a great deal of work and love to consistently help your animal in these areas. It’s important to stay optimistic, and trust that your animal is worth it, because they always are. Behaviours can be relearned, even if originally formed in traumatic circumstances. We’d recommend the following tips to help you:

Visit An Animal Behavioural Therapist

We’ve mentioned these guys previously in this article, and that’s because they should really be the first port of call you turn to. These qualified professionals have the means to try and isolate the issue, and if not suggest behaviours and methods to help you train your dog out of this. It might be walking your dog outside in parts with other dogs (on a strong leash) to get them used to the presence of other animals. It might be treating techniques. It could be taking them to a specialist trainer to have certain behavioural pathways reinforced.

Analyse Your Home

Your home can sometimes be the trigger for animal aggression. Try to isolate and find any sounds of a frequency that only a dog can hear (via a frequency detector) that might be emanating from a television or some other equipment. If your neighborhood is noisy at night due to a pressing reason, consider moving their resting area, or try to soundproof the doors of your home. The best strategy however is always preemptive.

Before bringing an animal into your home you should have already isolated and identified potential hazards for a shelter dog. This might be a neighborhood with loud dog barking, the fact you have small or unruly children in your home, or many other variables. Be honest with yourself. If you do not feel able to put up a strong home for them, you shouldn’t in the first place.


There are certain treats that can help a dog stay calm. Namely, cannabis dog treats can help with a plethora of different ailments, from lack of appetite to aggressive behaviour. You needn’t worry about your pet becoming as lifeless as you were in your college years either, as these CBD-high treats do not include THC, the main psychoactive element that gets you ‘high.’ Strained of these effects, the powerful benefits of the plant can do their work. You may find your dog becomes much more mellow, enjoys a better sleep quality and alleviates cancer pain or seizures.

With these tips, you are sure to isolate, alleviate, and potentially medicate the problem.
