Dog Body Language and Physical Cues: Dominant Arousal

This Dalmatian has been aggressive to other dogs. Not because he is necessarily “aggressive” by nature, but because he is a bit of “dominant” dog (I use that word lightly) and his excited, dominate arousal has not been checked effectively until he came to me in a board and train.
You can see his initial entrance is inappropriatedue to ly excited aroused (due to his past record wiht aggression toward other dogs, this display must be nipped in the bud).
I want you to see his behavior so you know what to look for in your dog if you have a reactive and/or aggressive dog. You want to de-escalete the dog at a 1 not at a 10 (on a scale of 1-10; 1 being not fighting and 10 being all out dog fight).

Since 2010, China has been holding a Yulin festival – around the summer solstice. Dogs are placed in cages on top of one another and that is the most humane thing that happens to them. Cats are also put in cages. The reason this happens is because Yulin is a 3 day dog and cat eating festival.
