Why would killing an aggressive dog be violent?

Question by anti yuppie: Why would killing an aggressive dog be violent?

I asked a question, regarding aggressive dogs in my neighborhood and by me saying I will kill the aggressive dog, people thought it was “a fake question”, “im not a dog lover” or that it was “violent?”

I’m happy I live in Alaska. We value the lives of people and our own pets more than an aggressive dog that attacks people? I’m confused.

I can assure you I am not a dog hater, im not sad, im not violent…im very happy 😀 I love dogs, ..but I would not hesitate to kill an aggressive one – No way!

My dogs my little buddy! I love dogs!
Me and Moose
Going to the beach with my lil buddy

What would you do in my situation?
(keeping in mind the area you live has no animal control)
Sorry, not trying to stir up any trouble . Just curious as to what people would do in this situation, or views on this topic in general! It really does interest me on how different cultures treat animals or how they regard different animals.

For example tourists will come up to fish here and after catching a red (salmon) just throw it up on the bank…WHAT?! No no no…that is the most inhumane thing you can do. It is going to lay on shore dieing painfully! But then a toursit will look at you in disgust when you slit the gills of the fish you caught and it bleeds everywhere or you bonk it on the head with a rock (this only looks cruel but is done to knock the fish out or for it to bleed out so it dies as painlessly as possible).

And as for bears, oh yeah i’m suprised they dont make it open season for bears! We had too many bears last summer, and this summer they estimate that the number will triple! Ugh….and the moose population is now declining as a result! I love moose…bear
gio gio go:

that would be great if the dogs could go to a new home where they could be trained!!! I’m sure if raised properly they would be great dogs. Pits are only aggressive when raised by the wrong people. And big teddy bears if raised by the right people.
ya i couldve hit it once but i could not bring myself to do it and slammed on the brakes…but its got to the point that i wont hesitate anymore. ive seen other people doing the same so i know the dogs are bugging alot of people not just me.
heart: the dog has bitten me in the leg, bitten my cousin on the leg, and bitten my uncles foot – all on our property.

Question by Janae: Why does everyone expect pit bulls are suppose to be aggressive?
No one ever gives pit bulls a chance, like as soon as they see a pit bull they run or just say “Omg its a pit bull”. Not all pit bulls are mean because my aunt has a pit bull and everybody gets along with it. So why don’t other people care for pits.

Aggressive Dog Behavior Training Professional Announces Surge In Aggression

Aggressive Dog Behavior Training Professional Announces Surge In Aggression

Aggressive Dog Behavior Surges

Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

Tucson, Arizona’s aggressive dog training specialist, Gerard Raneri of Bark Busters Tucson, is reporting a surge in aggressive dog behavior throughout 2011 and heading into 2012. Mr. Raneri links the increase in aggression to the economic downturn, that an increase in pressure and tension is trickling down to the pet population.

The training firm credits financial uncertainty as leading to fewer people seeking professional help with serious behavior problems. Families are putting off getting help with dominance and aggressive behavior being displayed by their pets and the problems when not faced early get worse.

“It starts out for many with their dogs showing lower level signs of dominance,” said Mr. Raneri, behavior specialist, adding “The longer your dog isn’t socialized or the longer your dog gets to misbehave the harder it is to reeducate your dog and us humans as well.”

The financial uncertainty is leading to an increase in dog population at rescue agencies and being euthanized. According to the Center for Disease Control an estimated 368,245 people were treated for non-fatal dog bite related injuries with 42% of bites occurring in among children aged 14 and younger.

“Families experiencing aggressive behavior from their family dog owe it to themselves to get help to eliminate the aggression right away,” said Mr. Raneri, adding, “Do not wait until tragedy has struck.”

Dog Aggression – Curing Aggressive Dog Behavior

Dog Aggression – Curing Aggressive Dog Behavior

Have you ever wished you could cure your dog of aggression and get your dog to stop being aggressive once and for all? Whether it is dog on dog aggression or an aggressive dog towards other people and children, it is important to take dog aggression training very seriously.

Luckily, as with all dog behavior problems, there is a solution for aggressive dogs with the right training and patience. The following is my formula for fixing aggressive dog behavior and ensuring that you no longer have to put up with aggressive dogs.

1- A high level of obedience training. This is step one and the most important part of fixing dog aggression. If your dog is obedient to you it makes aggression much more manageable. For example, your dog can’t be aggressive to another dog if he comes when called. He can’t bite someone who comes through the door if he reliably lies down and stays. There are many things that are made more simple if your dog is obedient.
More important than the functionality of obedience, though, is what obedience training does for your relationship with your dog. Obedience puts you in the leadership role. It is critical for you to be the leader if you are the owner of an aggressive dog.

2- Control the environment around your dog. I can’t tell you how many times I have spoken with the owner of a dog that suffers from dog on dog aggression who repeatedly takes their dog to a dog park for ‘socialization’. Every time the dog goes to the park he gets into a fight! It is important to use common sense and be more careful of your dog’s surroundings and environment.
Don’t get me wrong. That doesn’t mean your dog has to live in a bubble. It just means that you need to be more aware of your surroundings if you have an aggressive dog and take extra precautions.

3- You need to correct your dog the next time he shows aggressive behavior. This isn’t done by shouting at your dog, swatting him, or any other means like that. The best way to correct aggressive dog behavior is by doing leash training. As your dog starts to show aggression, give a few firm corrections as you go the opposite direction. By going the opposite direction you prevent your dog from forming an association with the object of his aggression.

By following these steps you can fix dog aggression and get your dog to be much less of a liability.
