Types of Aggression in Dogs

There are many reasons why a dog may attack another person or animal. Oftentimes, dogs will feel threatened or frightened by others and will bite or injure others in order to protect themselves. Dog bite injuries can be severe, especially for young children and the elderly, and can lead to long-lasting complications that may be expensive to treat.

If you or a loved one has suffered a dog bite from a negligent or careless owner’s dog, you may be able to receive compensation for your pain and suffering. For more information regarding your legal options at this time, contact the Michigan pet bite attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE.

Animal Aggression

While many people assume that dog bites only occur when a dog is angry, there are actually many kinds of aggression in dogs. These include:

  • Dominance aggression- aggressive behavior used to show dominance
  • Defensive aggression- aggressive behavior due to feelings of fear and uncertainty
  • Territorial aggression- aggression directed at people who the dog believes will harm their environment
  • Predatory aggression- aggression directed toward smaller animals or children
  • Pain-elicited aggression- aggressive behavior directed at people who approach the dog while he or she is injured
  • Punishment-elicited aggression- aggressive behavior towards people who somehow harm the dog

Regardless of the motives for a dog’s aggressive behavior, a dog bite injury can be very serious and may lead to permanent problems.
