It has been proven that owning a pet will lower blood pressure, get rid of feelings of depression and loneliness, as well as help with reducing stress. There is nothing out there that can top the love and companionship of having a dog. However, there are some dog behavior problems that can develop, and make things a little harder than need be – from wetting the floor, chewing your stuff up, and even barking all night.
If your dog is exhibiting these types of dog behavior problems, it may be acting out due to boredom, pent-up aggression or because of lack of training. With proper lifestyle adjustments and diligent training, you’ll be on your way to having a happy, well-behaved pet.
Spaying or neutering your pet is a very common way to not only helping your dog to live longer, and being healthier, but it will take a lot of the aggression on of it, and this will create a lot less dog behavior problems.
Having a scheduled training and workout time with provide your best friend with the exercise it needs to be a very well behaved dog. Usually a scheduled walk twice a day for about 30 – 45 mins will be more than enough, this can help with boredom, which in return will lead to less dog behavior problems, like destruction. Meaning, less stuff or no stuff chewed up.
Start training your dog. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, training your dog will teach you how to control your dog’s behavior problems both safely and humanely.
A big thing, that most people forget is being patient with your dog. Teaching your best friend to be a better dog will take determination on your part, its very much worth it though. After all, as your best friend, it will very much appreciate the bonding process during all your time together.
