Dog Behavior Problems

Aggression in Dogs

Dog aggression is a common dog behavior problem which pet parents are facing today. Why is this? Well, this is because dogs may be aggressive for a large number of reasons including the protection of territory, protection of their loved ones or even protection of their water dish. Dogs may also be defensive if they become fearful of something (dogs also can fear children) or if they are unhappy with a situation.

Dog Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is also a common problem occurring in our canine companions. If your dog has separation anxiety, you may come home to a house that has been completely torn apart. You may also come home to a house that has feces throughout, walls eaten and/or a crying dog. A dog may experience separation anxiety if there is a change in routine or in environment. This could be something as simple as moving your bedroom from one room to the next room. How to make your home pet proof?

House Training Dogs

The third most common dog behavior problem faced by behaviorists is house training. There are quite a few dogs, whether puppies or adults, who have a difficult time learning this concept. This is often beyond frustrating for the pet parent. House training takes a significant amount of time, dedication and patience. The most effective tip is to keep your dog on a schedule. Feed the dog at the same time every single day and take the dog out the same time every single day. This alone will help the dog learn when it can use the bathroom properly.
