At the friendly confines of the Make Your Dog Epic Tulsa Dog Training World Headquarters, we have invested thousands of hours into training with many types of aggressive dogs and passive aggressive humans.

We have worked with Belgian Malinois, Doberman Pinscher, Chihuahua and dogs that resemble “White Fang,” “Cujo” and Beethoven and we deliver results. What we continue to find is that some dog issues are very geographic and territorial in nature, while other issues are simply resource guarding related. Working with, mentoring and coaching Tulsa aggressive dogs is what we do and could be described as our niche and overall specialty.

So when you are dealing with an aggressive dog we are able to solve nearly any issue so that you as the dog owner can gain true dominance and mastery of your Tulsa dog. There are many Tulsa dog trainers that may attempt to make the process of training a Tulsa dog very complicated and difficult to understand, but that is not what we are about.

  1. CORRECTED aggression – Means we can train your pup to understand that they are not allowed to be aggressive in the areas they currently strungle with. Dogs are like wolves where they are pack animals. We need them to understand that you their leader does not accept that behavior.
  2. With Make Your Dog Epic this normally can take anywhere between 1-5 months to fix.

With aggressive behavior that can be “CORRECTED” we will see results in 5-10 days.If the dog has been showing aggressive behavior for more than 2 years we will need about 2 weeks to start seeing results. The longer the dog has been showing these sings the longer it can take to correct.

  1. MANAGED  aggression – This means the dog knows what the correct behavior is but its drive is so strong it doesn’t care about self control unless the owner is there to enforce the behavior.

Example Problem – Big billy eats choclate before dinner when dad isn’t paying attention.

Solution – Dad shows big billy that he can not eat the cholatale before dinner.

2 Possible outcomes:

Fixed – Big Billy doesnt eat chocolate because he knows dad will correct it.

Controlled – Big billy doesn’t eat chocolate while dad is in the room but if dad leaves bill will eat the chocolate.

The difference in this example doesn’t depend on the dad but instead the kid. If the kid has a strong will then he only listens when dads there because he doesn’t have self control.

This is a funny example but this is how dogs are.  Most dogs are on the same mentality level of a 6 year old. Some 6 year olds are better than other 6 year olds.

Observed behavior vs. Passed Down behavior vs.Resource Guarding:

One of the canine aggression that the team sees is observed behavior which means the dog saw another dog do it or was smart enough to understand cause and effect. The other is Passed Down Behavior which means the dogs parents were aggressive or had those behaviors and genetics plays a factor. Or it is Resource Guarding which you get a lot with guardian breeds (Great Pyrenees, Tibetan Mastiffs, German Shepherd, Caucasian Shepherd Dog etc). Sometimes you get a mix of all of them.


Aggression as a observed behavior –here are a couple different cases we have had:

  1. A dog learns that if it growls at a kid the kid backs away. They do it once, then again and again and it gets worse and worse because it’s learning that the dog will back away.
  2. A dog is at a dog park playing with a dog and randomly gets attacked. Then it learns that it should either be scared or aggressive each time it sees a dog.
  3. A owner hits a dog and the dog learns to growl so the owner doesn’t hit them.
  4. A dog is playing with toys some one tries to take it and it learns the owner leaves if it growls.

In all these situations the dogs learns that if it does a certain action it gets a certain reaction.

Aggression is a passed down behavior – here are a couple cases we have had. 

  1. The papa dog was in fighting rings and the puppies were dog and human aggressive by the time they were 4 months old. 
  2. Mom was a Belgian malinois and was very neurotic and aggressive and her puppies were showing those behaviors already at 5 months old.
  3. Mom was an aggressive Tibetan Mastif it was very aggressive towards anything that isn’t family.  The dog got hit by a car shortly after giving birth. They kep one puppy. Even though it had never seens its mom it was aggressive towards everything that wasn’t family.
  4. A cane corse was breed to protect and guard for competitions. Its puppy would guard and protect at 5 months old already with out ever being taught.


The examples listed above are examples of dogs we have worked with.

We did not work with any of the parents in these examples, just the kids. All of these are examples of Passed Down behavior. 

When people are getting a dog to be in the fighting rings they get a dog that has parents that are aggressive. They do this because there is a high chance the puppies will be aggressive.Just like traits can be passed down in humans the same is true for dogs. 

German Shepherds for example can be bred to be very territorial and defensive. IF you look up Tibetan mastiffs you will see they love their immediate family but hate any strangers. At Make Your Dog Epic we train a TON of Pit Bulls! They are normally great with no passed down behaviors. Even if we get dogs that are fighting pitbulls we still have succes training them it just takes a little more time..


When the negative behavior stems from passed down behaviors it’s still doable it will just take us a little longer. The goal of training a dog with passed down behaviors is to give you control back. We can’t promise to make the aggression go away 100% but we can give you control back.We would love to have our Make Your Dog Epic professional Trainer come out to your house and give you more information and work with your dog in front of you!  Sleep well knowing that we have trained over 4500 dogs, We have seen so many different behaviors from dogs and we have most likely dealt with the problem before.

Aggression in the form of resource guarding  is the most common scenarios we see played out over and over:

  1. A doberman sees someone walking up to mom in a hoodie and feels mom getting nervous and starts getting aggressive to protect mom or “resource guard mom”
  2. A cane corso sees the kids playing and is fine until the neighbor comes over and starts play fighting with the kids as well. The dog instinctively guards its family and doesn’t understand the difference between play and actual fighting.
  3. Do barks and growls anytime the mail man brings the mail.
  4. The dog barks anytime someone comes close to the car.

In all these situations the more the dog is in those situations the worse that behavior is going to get. The humans typically get more nervous in this situations beicase they know their dog is about to get aggressive and the dog thinks moms getting nervous because of the situations so they are trapped in a doom loop and it will get worse and worse. What we need to do is teach the dog commands where the human can speak to them in a way they understand. Now when you can give the dog commands that the owner trusts that they understand they can start feeling less anxious and now we are coming out of that doom loop. The cane corso example is a little more complicated to teach. However, it’s still fixable!

The 3rd and 4th examples are very easy for us to fix and we can fix them very quickly! If you want us to figure out the type of aggression your dog is showing, let us help you! Give us a call at 918-550-5557!



To reiterate this is the main type of aggression we deal with. 

  1. Alpha aggression- believing they need to assert dominance in every situation.
  2. Afraid aggression – They are nervous or scared of everything around them so they lash out to protect themselves. Fight or flight example.
  3. Resource guarding, home guarding, human guarding – When the dog is protecting something they perceive as theirs. They feel it necessary to be protective anytime something new comes up to it.
  4. Human aggression – Shows aggression to human beings
  5. Canine  Aggression – shows aggression towards dogs.

5 common commands for aggressive dog training:

  1. Come – this must be proofed. That no matter how the dog feels it has to come.
  2. Place – This must be proofed also. No matter how the dog feels it must stay on the spot.
  3. Quiet – No more growling or barking
  4. Off – This means knock it off
  5. Sit – you know this one

These 5 common commands control all these situations

  1. The dog wants to be mean to the delivery person
  2. The dog wants to eat a human being
  3. The dog wants to growl at all humans

In all of these situations you first say “OFF” This means knock it off.

They need to  move away then the second command is “Come”. This needs to be proofed so that no matter what is going through the dog’s head they understand they need to come. Next is either sit or place. This will keep them confined to a specific area.
