fear-aggressionBody posture (Fear Aggression) is basically when the dog is cowering and showing aggression at the same time.

Some of the body language signs are:

  • Body lowered
  • Fur raised on their back
  • Tail Tucked between the back legs
  • Ears flattened backwards
  • Dilated pupils
  • Mouth showing teeth snarl looking muzzle


Some things to keep in mind is that this can be very dangerous and normally gets worse over time if left without counter conditioning. Also known as a fear bitter. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking the dog is just shy but won’t bit.
