Why Royvon

Royvon has been a family business for over 60 years! And, in the last 20 years or so we have made a conscious effort to develop our programmes to help with aggressive dogs. We understand the personal anguish of loving your dog so much, but having to deal with the upset of them being aggressive towards you, other dogs, or people in your community. And, we don’t want you to have to consider living your life without your dog any more than you do! That’s why we’re dedicated to using our years of experience to help dogs and families just like yours. 

Our knowledge and methods show us that most dog aggression stems from fear of some kind. However, every dog is different and there are a number of reasons why your dog may be exhibiting aggressive behaviours. We’ll work with them to create a tailored programme to help stop dog aggression, whether it’s dog to dog or dog to human aggression. 

Types of Aggression

Dog to dog aggression. Thisis the most common type of aggression that we help our customers combat. Usually, there are specific circumstances where a dog displays such behaviour. It’s very common for dogs to be ok with certain types of dogs but not others, or behave well on a lead but terribly off-lead. Our programmes are here to help you overcome this, whatever your situation!

Dog to people aggression. Usually, this is due to a lack of proper socialisation as a puppy. The most common situation occurs when a puppy is still young and unsure of people, so they react in a negative way. This may cause embarrassment, leading to owners avoiding such situations in the future, which can often unknowingly make the problem worse! This is a particularly common trait in certain guarding breeds, such as German Shepherds.

Other Situations

Another common situation is where the dog has learned that it’s ok to show aggression when they don’t want something to happen or don’t want something taken away. Again, this situation is often present due to the uninformed owner allowing it to happen- but don’t worry, we can help rectify it with our aggressive dog training programmes!

However your dog may behave, it doesn’t mean that it’s your fault as an owner! Whether your dog came to you as a puppy, or later in life, steps can be taken to help! It just means you didn’t know the significance of allowing certain behaviours and what would the long term outcomes would be. But we are not here to judge you and your dog. We are just here to help you move forward!

Our Programme to Stop Dog to Dog Aggression and Much More!

Our aggressive dog training comes in the form of our Behaviour Modification Programme, and it aims to build your dog’s confidence and reduce aggressive behaviours. We will design a unique training plan based on the individual requirements of your dog. There are two phases to the programme, detailed below/ 

Step One

An intensive 21-day training programme for your pooch. Our behaviourists are specialists in supporting dogs with fear or anxiety (that often leads to aggression), and they will work with your dog on an individual basis. Each day, we will assess your dog’s results from the previous day to decide on the next steps to take. We will work at your dog’s pace, as it’s crucial that we provide an opportunity to advance, but not too many big steps are taken at once, to achieve the best results. We aim to advance in two main areas:

Desensitising: We desensitize the dogs so that they feel differently about the problem, for example, other dogs in the case of dog to dog aggression. For example, if your dog arrives and is a 9 out of 10 on a scale of aggressiveness, we will work to reduce this to 1 or 2. With some younger dogs, this can even be reduced to 0!

Trust: Our trainers will also work to stop dog aggression by teaching your dog to trust them and follow cues. The outcome when they learn to follow cues correctly is, the situation has passed and the dog has enjoyed the rewards that come with behaving well! The dogs learn that they don’t need to make difficult decisions themselves- just follow the trainer (and eventually owner) and all will be ok!

Step Two

2. Owner training is the next part of the programme but is equally important. Our methods are based on positive rewards-based training. The dog chooses whether to listen or not, so it can take longer to learn- but the results are far better! It’s more rewarding for the owners and better for the dogs. Your owner training takes place via a 2-hour session on departure day for your dog. You are then welcome to take part in as many further owner training sessions on a Saturday or Sunday as you wish!

After this, you will need to be proactive in your approach for the first month. Subsequently, you can decide if more aggressive dog training is needed, or if you are happy with your new level of knowledge! Usually, those with younger dogs rarely need further training, but some owners decide they need further support. There is no shame in whatever you choose!

We know how isolating it can feel to have the dog of your dreams turn into an aggressive one. So, we will stop at nothing to ensure you are supported and able to manage your dog safely and effectively, so the whole family can enjoy them! Please give us a call today to discuss our programme, your individual needs, or to book an assessment!
