Dog Teaching and Dog Behavior Problems And Their Remedies

I know due to experience that even the best dogs aren’t always well behaved and do have behaviour problems.  Just imagine attempting to deal with two English Mastiffs, and a little Yorkie Poo.  They are virtually impossible to deal with when they’re all together which is reasonably frequently.  However, you can learn the tips that i did and how I learned how to control my dogs better than I have ever managed to before!  Some of the things I am going to tell you about is coaching, positive re-strengthening, and consulting with your vet to rule out possible health problems. 

One of the first things that I had to do to help me out with my dogs was find a dog teaching program.  My partner was not to keen on the idea, but after they were obedience trained he was quite cheerful because they were no longer dragging him thru the backyard.  So that little coaching helped fantastically.  I think that coaching can help dogs of any age or size.  They can even help with dog behaviour issues. 

The subsequent thing that I did to help address my dog behavior problems were to begin with positive re-strengthening.  I know that could be a straightforward psychological issue to cope with the difficulties, but it does work quite well .  I discovered that when they misbehave if I ignore them and not show any affection of any sort towards the dog it manages to modify their perspective quickly.  Most dogs do love having attention given to them and without that attention then they typically will correct the unacceptable behavior quickly .  However, you may remember that when the dog does something good you have got to give them affection straight away.  I usually give a pat on the chest which according to classes that I have went to makes them feel proud of what they actually did.  I have used treats as a reward at certain times mainly when coaching them to come after I let them off of the leash. 

While those solutions typically work for dealing with your dogs behavior you may have to consult with your vet to help address the issues.  I’ve had to do that for my moggy even because her behavior is so awful.  Sometimes as is the case with my cat he prescribed medication for her.  That might be what your dog desires to correct any behavior issues that keep repeated.  Remember that your sometimes your dogs behavior may be due to health problems so be certain to check with your vet before trying anything else. 

So if your dog has behavior issues you can try a number of things.  Some of those things include consulting with your vet about possible health issues, positive strengthening, and dog coaching.  A mix of all those things perhaps required which is what I had to do with my dogs.  Especially the coaching and positive reinforcement which appeared to help out the best since they were only puppies, but in your older dogs it maybe that they are experiencing health issues so you do have to take into account the age of your dog before taking any steps to correct the behavior. 

I live in North Carolina with my wonderful husband and 2 stunning children.  I have 2 English Mastiff puppies, a Golden Labrador, and a Yorkie.  I also have two pussies who came to us as strays.  I like stitching, crocheting, and managing to look after my zoo at the house.  Since I have so many pets I have got a robust interest in animal issues.
