Fear often manifests as a result of the unknown.
In general, it can be said that knowledge frees from fear.
In response to fear, man, endowed with intelligence and imagination, can choose to implement a wide range of diplomatic behaviours.
On the other hand, the behaviour of the dog, having fewer resources, can be foreseen and summarized as follows: fight or flight.
Again, it is the relationship with man that gives the dog an alternative to those that would otherwise be the mandatory conditions imposed by nature.
If we give our dog the chance to identify us as a valid reference point, he can seek comfort, safety and protection from us.
Different forms of dog fear
But there are other forms of fear, also for dog fear.
Jealousy, for example, is the fear of losing the care and attentions of someone who is dear to us. It manifests itself as jealousy, but its subtle form is fear.
Greed is the fear of losing the benefits we enjoy, it manifests itself as attachment to things, selfishness, but it is fear, fear of losing them.
So, with a little attention, we can find that different behaviours described in different terms, may have a common element: fear.
This awareness can find a way to be spent in a lot of circumstances.
We can solve the behavioural problems of our dog by identifying from what kind of fear they arise and providing adequate encouragement.
Rather than being tamers or severe colonels of dogs that develop aggressive behaviour, it is certainly more advantageous to remove the disorder rather than prevent it from manifesting.
And the way to do it is to give the dog that security and peace that will gradually lead him to choose to surrender to our care and to our guide.
