Self-defense aggressiveness

This type of aggressive conduct is symptomatic in those exemplars that respond to any of these conditionings:

  1. to have a genetic pattern inherited from its progenitors, or
  2. to have suffered a traumatic situation with or without pain, on its first months of life,

The first six months of the dog's life are determining for a dog, as a consequence of the high levels of receptivity that they reach. In both cases the exemplar develops at first an avoiding conduct before the person, animal or thing that is the cause of its lack of confidence.

Equally pups that have been taken away from its mother's environment – be it sooner or later- are highly inclined to suffer these problems. In the supposing that the pup is taken away early the exemplar will manifest a short or middle term evasive conduct. If the pertinent measures of holding back its sensitivity are not taken the aggression of self defense will arise in his daily relation with other dogs. All the above doesn't interfere with the affection he has with its human family.

On the contrary, if the pup is separated late from the litter his conduct would be diametrically opposed. At all times he will have a gratifying relation with other dogs with the logical exceptions inherent to any animal relation with his most immediate human environment, safe that the circumstances be given that the breeder could have had the necessary time to have correctly socialized the pup.

The motive for the presence of this conduct patterns are logical without a doubt of error we can affirm that the pup that is separated too soon from the litter and mother is a dog that hasn't properly learnt to be a dog.
