With Respect, Patience, & Confidence, All Else Will Follow

Fearless K9 Specializes in the Training and Management of Aggressive Dogs.

This has been our focus from the beginning and continues to be on a daily basis. Our mission is to be a resource which owners of aggressive dogs can trust and learn from to be able to successfully live with and safely manage this type of dog. Within this growing area of need, we have created and implemented training plans for owners, trainers, rescue and shelter organizations, and government agencies. This is accomplished by being able to systematically map out training plans that make sense to the owner/handler, AND the dog through the use of scientifically proven models of learning; logical implementation; and real world practicality, performance, and safety.

12 Areas of Potential Aggression

  • Prey/Predatory (Begins with intense staring and scanning in anticipation of where “prey” may be present or is triggered by quick moving objects/animals. Predatory behavior takes place without signals of intent, and the engagement has one purpose…to destroy the opponent/object. This behavior is seen disproportionately higher within particular breeds.)

  • Fear Induced (Reacting when scared, nervous or unsure of stimuli or specific situations. Examples: moving objects such as bikes, runners, cars, children, or when cornered and can’t escape)

  • Food (Includes meals, high value consumable items such as marrow bones, and/or treats)

  • Redirected (It is a result from when the dog can’t get to, or is unclear who the target is/should be.)

  • Maternal (centering around a female dog’s pregnancy or as displaced aggression when a human is pregnant)

A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO TRAINING

Every aspect of the training or teaching process can/should be mapped out as a set of blueprints. By utilizing a systematic approach, any deficiencies, or unwanted behaviors can be quickly pinpointed and then addressed in a very efficient manner. This systematic approach not only successfully addresses issues within obedience training, but also flushes out and then directly addresses many of the underlying, root issues that can go unchecked and eventually lead to unwanted behaviors such as displaced aggression in the form of: extreme resource guarding, social aggression, or predatory behaviors.

11 LAYERS OF SUCCESS

The easiest way to understand this approach is to think of it as a layered triangle. As in any structure, the stronger the foundation, the more stable it is. That is why we always start at the bottom and work our way up looking at the relationships the different layers have, and in what context they apply to the situations at hand…

PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY AND RESPECT

When dealing with dogs that have a greater genetic potential to respond with aggression, or a dog that has proven their willingness to respond with aggression, safety and owner liability is always of great concern and importance. The reliability and performance of this kind of dog can’t be left to chance…

CLEAR COMMUNICATION

Many times a breakdown in communication is the cause of a dog being disobedient or defiant. By taking the time to make sure we have clear and consistent channels of communication with the dog, we can create a learning and living environment in which the dog can trust in our leadership…

TRAINING AS A BLUEPRINT

The process by which the dog is trained is even more important than the “finished” results. Even if a dog looks like it is performing well in a controlled environment, it does not mean that the dog has a deep understanding of what they are doing and there will be side effects because of that lack of structure…
