Aggression - tips for interpreting signs
Occasionally dogs will become fractious during handling. Proper restraint of your dog is crucial to avoid injury when handling dogs. Wear protective clothing such as sturdy shoes. Minimizing dogs' exposure to sudden changes in the environment and acclimatizing them slowly to changes is important. Always have an exit strategy when working with dogs; occasionally, dogs will not tolerate handling and should be placed in a secure environment until they adjust to a new situation and calm down.
