Dear Friend, There have been times when you as a dog owner becomes increasingly frustrated. Your dog doesnít want to obey your commands and do as you say. Even with trying to coax your canine, sometimes it still does not work.
All dogs have behavioral problems. It does not matter what breed you own, you can run into a roadblock with trying to get them to stop their bad behavior. There are just some times where you have to put your foot down and roll with the punches. Your dog will either do what you say or youíll ship him out. Of course, if you are a dog lover, you are not looking to do the latter.
Dogs are still and will always be manís best friend, but they also have to act like it. Increasingly bad behavior will not help them stay in the good graces of their owner. Dog owners that are looking for a solution to the madness will need to adapt to behavioral training methods that will make your dog do a 360 degree turnaround.
Here are some of the reasons why your dog will act out:
Your dog is not used to being separated from you for a period of time; There is a lack of communication between you and your dog; You are not reinforcing commands that your dog needs to obey; You are not consistent with making your dog change their bad behavior patterns; You are allowing others to do the opposite of how you are trying to train your dog With "Training Your Dog", you as a dog owner will be able to do more for your dog in terms of getting them to do what you need them to do. They need to learn to be obedient and do whatever you say, within reason. They need to understand that you are the dog owner and that they are to respect you as such. They need to get the message that disobedience will no longer be the norm in your household.
Itís better to start training them when they are still a puppy. Itís also easier to start when they are still young. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to get them to comply to your demands. Dogs are like children. You have to teach them what they need to do. When they do it wrong, you have to discipline and correct them to do it the right way. You need to communicate to your dog what behavior is acceptable and what behavior is off limits. They need to know where you stand in everything. You have to be consistent and make sure that they know you mean business.
