Does anyone have any good list of behaviors to look for to tell the difference?
I have been trying to read up a good deal about Predatory "aggression" but can't find too much information.
How do you tell whether a dog is "dog aggressive" to other dogs or "predatory aggressive"?
Would a dog who stalks, makes a beeline towards other dogs, and acts like they are going to grab and shake be labeled "predatory aggressive" or "dog aggressive"?
I feel like the major problem dogs I've encountered in my work have been pit bulls who really are more "predatory aggressive" than actually dog or human aggressive. When they have "attacked" they do no growling and no warning of aggressive behavior to come, which sounds consistent with predatory drift as its a natural and instinctive desire to kill to eat, and not anger or aggression.
