Dog training – a paw in the right direction for your furry friend

Category : Hobby, Lifestyle

A dog is man’s best friend. There isn’t a more universal truth than this. However, everything shouldn’t always be about humans. Just as you need a good friend to help you, your furry friend may also need you to help him/her out too.

Behavioral Issues to be found in dogs

It doesn’t matter where and when you’ve bought your dog or adopted him/her the important thing is to make sure you address any behavioral issues in your dog head-on.

There are, of course, several ways that dogs may behave that are perceived as bad behavior.

Some of the most common ways are:

Digging: Dogs do love to dig. However, it is unsafe for him/her to do so. Also, it’s pointless to scold your dog after the deed has been done.

Chewing: Dogs explore the world with their mouths. It may be something that calms them, but it’s still unsafe for him/her as it can cause choking or clogged intestines in dogs.

Begging: A dog will never beg if it’s not given scraps from the table. Begging can turn into a nasty habit if not stopped from the beginning.

Not coming when called: Your dog must respond to you when you call it. This is beneficial for you both as it may prevent accidents.

Leash Pulling: It is often dangerous, for dogs as well as humans when there is too much leash pulling involved. Hence, teaching your dog to walk calmly beside you is essential.

Separation Anxiety: This is a common phenomenon faced by the owners of most pets.

Whining: Most pets whine to get attention. It’s a pretty annoying habit, especially in public places.

Biting: This habit in your dog implies that it hasn’t been around people much. Most domesticated dogs only bite when feeling threatened or very nervous.

Counter-surfing: It is a nasty habit that will stay unless preventive measures are taken to put an end to it.

Aggression: Dogs don’t show aggression unless they are truly afraid or nervous. Under such circumstances, it is imperative to get proper training for your dog.

Barking all the time: A dog may rarely bark all the time. But, such odd behavior is known to happen. It is quite easily remedied too.

Given the fact that quite a few habits are considered bad behavior, it is important to train your dog to make sure that it makes life easy and fun for both of you…
