I can’t tell you how often I’m called to deal with a dog at a shelter that exhibits what’s called Barrier Aggression. This is a behavior when the dog is barking, growling or aggresses toward the front of the kennel when people are present. It is generally not that hard to fix, but it is a death sentence in many shelters.
The most common solutions are overlooked. Having trained several shelters in new methods of temperament testing and dog behavior, this article sheds new light on this behavior. Please share it with your rescue, shelter and humane societies.
