Dogs & Puppies : Training & Behavior Last Updated: Oct 25th, 2006 - 08:57:26

Dogs & Puppies : Training & Behavior
Punishment Is Not the Answer
Some people mistakenly think that kind and firm solutions reward their dogs for bad behavior and that the only way a dog can learn is to suffer. More often than not, the "solution" for the dog's misbehavior is really misplaced anger or a desire to hurt the dog for hurting you. That's what happened with Francie, who left her new puppy Cody, an American Eskimo dog (a very attached breed who needs attention), home alone for long hours while she went to work. Her little dog was bored and teething, so he entertained himself by chewing on Francie's shoes...

Dogs & Puppies : Training & Behavior
The Danger Of A Jealous Dog
In the case of jealousy the mind of a dog works in almost an identical way to that of a human being.  It wants the full attention and love of its owner whether the jealousy occurs only when another dog enters the home or when the beloved owner talks to another dog outside, or whether the jealousy is aimed at another person in the home.  The same driving force is at the root of the evil in all of these cases: the intention of the dog to reign alone and supreme in his household...

Stealing Food & Your Personal Items
Dogs steal food for obvious reasons.  The problem is easily managed by keeping food items out of reach.  Stealing other items, however, is a more complex problem and requires more extensive investigation before correction is attempted...

Dogs & Puppies : Training & Behavior
Possible Origins of Aggression Within Dogs
Aggressive temperaments in canines are usually the result of both genetics and the environment.  A dog's environment can trigger aggressive behavior, particularly if he has a propensity toward aggression.  For instance, people often blame a dog's aggression on being abused or teased by children.  Fortunately, a dog's environment can be modified to protect him from abuse and teasing...

How To Remain Safe & Calm Around Strange Or Aggressive Dogs

How To Help Your Dog's Storm Phobias
Many dogs that fear storm activity also fear other sharp percussive noises, such as gunfire, exploding balloons, or low frequency sounds from a sound system capable of rattling the windows.  Because storm noises originate outdoors, any attempts to simulate storm noises or other loud sounds should originate there.  These can be tested and used with a routine which involves a single hand clap, followed immediately by praise and introduction of some toy or other stimulus the dog associated with happiness...

Dogs & Puppies : Training & Behavior
When Your Dog Runs Away
A dog that runs away from home has somewhere to go.  It is quite amazing that in most cases the owners cannot tell where their dog goes.  The usual answer is, "Just out in the neighborhood to see the other dogs or something."  These dogs have a definite objective in mind and usually cover the same route during each journey.  Why is that route or objectives more appealing than his home environment?  It must be that his environment is lacking in some respect...

Should Face Licking Be Encouraged?
Dog caresses and shows affection by licking; it is his way of showing love and appreciation for the person he does it to.  But face licking should be encouraged and needs to be stopped.   If he is stopped from doing this as a small puppy, he will learn to lay his face against his owner's cheek without the licking...

Incessant Barking: Part 2
In the wild, dogs have their own method of going about things their way.  But if you want your dog to be a well-behaved pet and to live in your home with you, you must teach him the human way of living.  Specifically, you have to teach your dog to redirect his normal and natural dog behaviors.  Failing to learn where to relieve himself, what to chew, when to bark, when to jump up and where to dig are the top reasons why the relationship fails and people give up their dogs...

Dogs & Puppies : Training & Behavior
Incessant Barking: Part 1
What does it mean when a dog barks?  The bark is the dog's word, and it can mean many things.  Your dog barks when he is alerting you to an intruder, when he is afraid, when he is playful, and when he is bored.  Barking is caused by the presence of stimuli such as strange people, dogs, sights or sounds, the owner's absence, or as an attention seeking mechanism...
