    Dog Behaviour Problems

    Stopping bad dog behaviour at the table can be achieved with a few simple rules. Like us humans, dogs make mistakes too. They may also have annoying habits. But the difference between a dog and a man, is that we are those who define the behaviour of the animal (or even his misbehaviour). The dog will develop depending on what we teach him to be. So if we do not care for a dog enough, do not be surprised at his jumping up or if he pulls us during a walk. It is much more beneficial to begin teaching a dog to behave properly at a younger age, as he will be much more receptive to everything. Older dogs may be trickier to train, as they will be set in their ways. See the following advice to sort out any dog behaviour problems in your house.
     
     

     

     

    Dog Behaviour Problems
    Bad dog behaviour can be especially embarrassing when he is slobbering onto a guest’s feet…or even worse, he is jumping up and down. We may try to blame him, but this dog behaviour is unequivocally due to the owner. Dogs tend to learn or pick up bad habits more than good ones. Thus, if you give him one or two bones or treats during lunch, don’t be surprised if he wants his fair share each time afterwards. It only take one time for a dog to think that whatever he is doing is acceptable forever.

    Stop Bad Dog Behaviour
    Send him to his own place before starting to dine, and don’t allow him to the table at all until you have finished eating. He may make some attempts at first, but he will later understand that he mustn’t. We should reward the dog if he stays seated, this way he will learn faster. Be sure not to give the dog any of your own food, even if you are snacking around the house. Do not even look at the dog when eating, and if he is pushy, send him away.

    Ask your family members to behave similarly. Even if one person gives the dog something on the sly, you may start teaching him from the very beginning that this is alright. This is exhausting both for you and your dog.

    Never leave any food lying out on the table, as this will only tempt the dog back into his old habits. Bad dog behaviour could once again become an issue for you.
