Destructive dog behavior, stopping destructive dog behavior,

Destructive dog behavior can start out as a developmental issue, it can also be a behavioral issue. The first thing that should be done is to find the root cause of such behavior. Does the pet have separation anxiety, does he feel under-stimulated, was there a recent change in routine or environment. All of these can be common triggers of destructive dog behavior. The solution for pet’s acting up will depend largely on the circumstances. If a dog is between the age of 6 months and 14 months and they chew a lot; chances are this is a developmental issue on this case we will focus on giving the dogs appropriate things to chew when we see them chewing on inappropriate items. If they have our slipper in their month we will replace it with a chew toy. This is why we do not give dogs free range of our home until they can be trusted. They should only have free range when someone is there to correct their behavior and show them what is expected of them. Stopping destructive dog behavior isn’t difficult when we know the root cause.  Come back for more tips on destructive canine behaviors or send us an email with your question and we will do our best to help.

Good manners training will help your canine respond appropriately to your cues will make the environment more predictable. This builds confidence to understand what you’re asking of them, and to understand the consequences of their behavior. Always remember to use positive reinforcement-based training with a timid or fearful dog so the consequences are happy ones. Nothing can destroy a dog’s confidence faster than the application of verbal or physical punishment; this will convince them that they are right to think the world is a scary and unpredictable place.Combine positive reinforcement good manners training with structure during the walk to build confidence as well. This is a great opportunity to teach them to walk properly while helping them with anxiety.

Dogs Love To Sniff,Dog walking,Los Angeles,West Hollywood,Beverly Hills

why do dogs sniff,dog walking,dog training,Dogs love to sniff

Dogs love to sniff, especially during dog walking. Using their nose is often the highlight of their walks, if not dominating their entire day. Their ‘nosiness’, however, can be difficult for owners to comprehend and even, on occasion, be embarrassing. The dog nose truly is a wonderful scent apparatus, even if we don’t quite understand all of its abilities yet. Dogs are born to sniff. The area of the canine brain that is devoted to analysing scent is 40 times greater than that of the human and dogs can identify smells at least 1,000 times better than we can! The dog’s superior sense of smell comes from 220 million olfactory receptors in its nose. Compared to the human’s paltry 5 million, it’s no wonder smell is considered to be the dog’s primary sense. When a dog sniffs, air is taken in and passes through the olfactory epithelium (nasal skin cells). These calls are also found in a special organ that dogs (and cats) possess, called the Jacobsen’s or vomeronasal organ. This organ is thought to be important in the detection of pheromones (body scents), perhaps giving the dog its tremendous ability to identify and recognise animals and people.
