The Greedy Dog
This dog bad habit can easily
be overcome. As dogs are natural scavengers, and will eat
most food they find. Success reinforces this bad behavior,
producing a chronic canine thief.
Teach a dog to sit before feeding it, and
only give it food on its own bowl, not on a plate or from
the table. Once it knows it must obey you before eating, it
will not steal food in your absence. As a precaution, don't
leave tempting food within its reach.
The oversexed dog
Over sexed dog is another dog bad
habit. Denied a more natural outlet for its sexual
energy, unneutered male dogs may mount a human leg or furniture.
This occurs most frequently in dogs between one and two years
old, although females in season may behave in a similar manner.
Distract the dog by spraying it with water
from a plant spray or water pistol. Any discipline must be
carried out immediately so that the dog associates this with
its bad behavior. Neutering or mating with other dogs may
prevent this behavior.
The Lonely dog
Left alone in the house, a nervous dog may
bark or howl. This is especially common in DOGS that has not
been properly socialized during puppy hood, or that have known
Before leaving your dog, provide him with
a special treat, such as a favorite toy that you have rubbed
in your hands, or a succulent marrowbone. Do not make a fuss
when you leave. The dog may feel secure in a dog crate.
Although breaking bad habit in a
dog is made easy by adopting the above strategies,
it is highly advisable to seek an opinion from a vet about
the existing dog bad habits. Then, fix a dog trainer
for breaking bad habit in a dog in an effective
manner. Happy Training!!!
