It usually begins with barking and the dog learns that barking continuously drives each new person away creating a “vicious cycle.”
This “cycle” continues until the excitement of the dog leads to boldness and more aggressive behavior. As this grows, with enough excitement and unbalanced energy, and may lead to a bite or attack without the dog being consciously doing it.
