|Fear aggression is the worst aggression. He's in the corner because in a pack a dog knows if he lights, the pack descends. That is the point of pack rehabilitation. Dogs can't practice their aggression, and if given time and space sort out other ways and develop social skills in so doing. That's the whole logic behind it....how do you place a dog around other dogs, where he needs to gain comfort, and not have him practice the aggression, which would be counter to seeking such comfort? If he can only seek comfort from learning to interact, the other dogs there teach how to be a dog. Since I first heard of this approach and had it essentially proven that dogs typically won't light in packs (no matter the emotional source of the aggression), I could see the potential.
Had the sound been on, in the pre-interview, this dog was aggressive (fear aggression, but still....bites are bites) and his life is on the line.
Now, he's playing.
