Expanded Description:

For anyone who wants to know more about aggression or dog behavior. As the book says, Aggression has a wide range of manifestations. And, it shows how to address reactive or aggressive behavior, with over 400 pages of text, drawings, and photographs.

This book does not just discuss aggression. It describes in great detail protocols to use for behavior modification. Starting with prevention, the reader learns about common mistakes owners make to promote aggression in their dog, and how to avoid these mistakes. In the behavior modification section, you will learn about how to build trust with the dog, using positive reinforcement. Shows how to achieve this level of trust with hundreds of exercises to promote appropriate behavior and modify inappropriate behavior. In the practical management section, the reader is prepared for a lifelong regimen of keeping his dog safe. The exercises in this book will be a salvation for problem dogs and a guide for prevention for others. Anyone involved with dogs will find a wealth of information about dog behavior in these pages and practical "do-able" solutions for problems.

What professionals are saying about Aggression in Dogs
Brenda Aloff is a pioneer in our field. Clicker trainers have proven that "it can be done" with competition obedience, agility, flyball, service dogs, indeed in all fields of what might be called "performance training." But Brenda takes our technology into a field long considered the ultimate bastion of the force trainer: rehabilitating and training the "aggressive" dog. Brenda shows clearly, most importantly through her detailed case histories, that one can address the issues posed by these dogs in a constructive, effective way without losing oneself in the murk of "dominance" theory and all of the mythology that surrounds it. This book is a worthwhile and necessary addition to any serious trainer's library.
Morgan Spector, author of Clicker Training for Obedience

There are standards in the world...Campbell's on soup, Bud on beer and now, Aloff on aggression. Almost every dog training book I've ever read has provided me with some gem, or at least some tidbit, I can use. This book, however, is the mother lode. If you need to understand aggression, Aggression in Dogs is the book for you!
Missy Parker, RVN, President, National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors

This book is a "must have" for all trainers, kennel personnel, veterinarians and support staff. Not just for aggressive animals, Aggression in Dogs is an excellent reference tool for anyone interested in understanding canine behavior and the prevention of aggression. The protocols are field-proven effective.
Robert Wenzel, DVM

Author Brenda Aloff is a professional dog trainer specializing in problem behavior. A large part of her practice consists of dogs that have been referred to her when traditional training techniques have failed.

Brenda travels all over the world giving talks on canine aggression and learning theory.

Great for Dog Professonals, January 10, 2008
Reviewer: Cheryl Schaeffer
While this book may be very interesting to owners with aggressive dogs, I think this is even more important to people who work with dogs such as shelter staff, rescue workers and trainers.

I've found this book very well written and easy to understand. It gives incredible insight into the less attractive side of some dogs and how to work with the behaviors. Definitely should be a reference in so many facilities.
 
good for trainers not for owners, September 14, 2006
Reviewer: ZKV
very good book for trainers that already understand enough to make their own choices - I wouls be afraid of a accident or worsening situation with a owner that just copies from the book because agression is serious and dogs vary so much it is hard to write instructions that will work for all. To continue on the review of the person who said it is really sad that she instructs to use a halti and pull down the dog to a down, and that he might bite, I agree with the review: I would not do it, as I also hate using head halters-especially for dogs who are agressive because of handling (just flat collar +muzzle if needed). I wish there would be more nuances to this technique.
My favorite part of the book are the teaching of nice intros to other dogs, very useful and works well!
 
New Trainer MUST have!, September 6, 2006
Reviewer: EC
This has been a valuable guide for me as a new trainer. It covers so much more than what the title says. I find that I am constantly going back and rereading sections as new challanges come my way
