Learn to recognize signs of (and then reduce) your dogís stress.
Learn to recognize signs of (and then reduce) your dogís stress. If possible, remove the stressor from your dogís environment entirely. For example, if heís stressed by harsh verbal corrections, shock collars, and NASCAR races on TV, you can probably simply stop exposing him to them. For stressors that canít be eliminated, a long-term program of counter-conditioning and desensitization can change the dogís association with a stressor from negative to positive, removing one more trigger for stress signals and possible aggression.
