Seven Tips for Problem Dog Behaviors
Dogs are just like people: mostly well-adjusted and a little neurotic… and sometimes equal amounts all at once! Accepting this fundamental conflict is part of being a pet owner. If your dog has their “less than perfect” moments that cause you a smile or a sigh… no worries. All dogs do. However, if your dog demonstrates more serious behaviors that cause you or anyone nearby to feel fear, uncertainty or ongoing discomfort, then we’ve got tips on how to start your pooch back on the road to civility.
Be aware that most of these problems are best treated by professional dog trainers who have experience with the particular issues at hand and that extreme care must be exercised with the dog until the issue is resolved.
