The real question we need to ask ourselves is, "is my dog really aggressive?" Alot of times the answer is NO and in this video you will watch America's Canine Educator bring tears to the owner of this misunderstood GSD. More importantly what happens when we diagnose faulty? NO RESULTS and unfortunately potentially ending up with the dog being put down, sad but true.
How can you be wrong if you simply don't know? Thats the idea behind all our training here at the Upstate Canine Academy. Words like "aggression", "alpha" and "My dogs dominant " get thrown around ALOT. Why? Simply lack of education my friends. .
SO, to be clear there are hundreds of variations of canine behavior and we just need to do a bit more studying, learning and for us EDUCATING. We are all on the same team and have similar goals with our dogs and this is a GREAT case study. I would bet 9/10 times the dog owner population would deem this dog "aggressive" which is scary to us, knowing the REAL dog under all the layers of insecurity and fear we had to peel off.

Our dogs are always trying to communicate with us, we just don't know how to connect. If you're having basic issues with your dog, just know it's YOU! Which is okay, I can help.
My goal & passion has always been to help dog owners understand their dogs on any level. The majority of the time it's simply lack of knowledge.

For over 8 years now I've been pushing myself to the absolute limit, trying to find the best me. I've come to realize I'll never find it, that's what makes me continue to push. THANK YOU all for joining me on this journey :)! #upstatecanine #dogtraining #dreamchasing #dogsofinsta #dogsofinstagram #passion
Working with two fearful dogs last night regain some confidence, I used my buddy Vik to help create calmness to reassurance. .
A lot of times dogs create and become fearful because of one bad encounter. This COULD create fear forever, it seems silly but it's true. The biggest problem is then you as a handler become nervous every time another dog is present. This perpetuates into fear from the handler and the dog and typically things never get better. So what I usually do to help rebuild confidence is take a calm/balanced dog and recreate calmness into the equation. Once the dog AND owner see everything is okay, it's the foundation you rebuild on. #upstatecanine #dogtraining #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinsta #dogsofig #gsd #dogs
