Author Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Coach, Reveals The Real Story on Stopping Aggressive Dogs

We needn’t look far for information on stopping dog aggression. The question The Chicago Dog Coach asks is: Are we really getting the full story on aggressive dog obedience training? If the mainstream media provides any clues, the answer is no

The Chicago Dog Coach, Ami Moore, CMT, CMVT, a leading expert in dog psychology recently revealed the truth regarding aggressive dog behavior. “It’s time we separate fact from fiction, and myths from truths. The real story here is that aggressive dogs are created by dog owners who lack the proper information for the effective parenting of their dog. Most dogs that I rehabilitate from aggression problems are dogs that are owned by loving dog owners who haven’t the slightest idea of how to raise a safe, sane dog.”

”Most people who call me,” Ms. Moore continued, “are terrified of their dog, afraid that their dog will hurt a child or a grandparent and don’t know what to do about it. They don’t know about Alphatude or the leadership energy that all dogs need for good health. They are clueless about proper diet-most owners feed their dogs the dietary equivalent of deep-friend cupcakes. Amiability, the education of the dog is often absent and proper Activity to condition the body, mind and soul of the dog is absent as well. Many of the aggressive dogs that I see are grossly obese, under-exercised and over-loved; the classic recipe for creating a homicidal maniac.”

Ms. Moore can rehabilitate a dog in the Rapid Rover Rehabilitation Session, a two-hour long training session that addresses the aggression from the dog’s point of view. In most cases, the dog owner experiences a immediate mind-shift that allows them to project Alphatude in their role as the dog’s parent which can lead to a complete and total turnaround in the dog’s aggressive behavior. Ami says, “The emotional testimonials from my clients who can live in peace with their dogs is heartrending. I am blessed to have the opportunity to support my clients in finding love and happiness with their dogs.”

Ami Moore asks the dog owners of aggressive dogs to consider three key points before turning their dog into a shelter, giving their dog away or putting their dog down.

1. The dog is always a reflection of the dog owner’s inner emotional truth. An aggressive dog equals a weak, permissive dog owner

2. The key to quickly rehabilitating the agressive dog is not obedience training, it is creating the Alphatude Attitude” in the human being.

3. There is no such thing as a bad dog, there is just an unknowing dog owner.

"In my book, 'The Alphatude Attitude'", continued Ms. Moore, "I talk about how the human component, particularly the feelings of fear, anger and frustration, influence a dog's behavior. The human learning to control their emotions is an important part of this process. I always tell my clients that their dogs need leadership more than love. ‘Alphatude’ is the leadership attitude expressed in a way that the dog understands. Dogs don’t really understand abstractions like words or emotions. Dogs understand concrete communication: tone, body language and facial expression.”
