Behavior Problems: Confusion, Clarity and Change

How problem behaviors present themselves can vary, but what steps need to be taken to resolve them? Learn a simple way to assess a problem, and a formula you can apply to create a solution that works, whether it is a housebreaking problem, barking at the window, chasing the cat or eating out of the cat box. It all becomes straightforward when you have a method of assessment and a protocol for treatment.

Helping the Reactive Dog
The grooming salon, boarding facility, doggie daycare, shelters, and dog training classes are filled with them. The leaping, spinning, mouthing dogs, with exhausted owners on the other end of the lead, saying things that always seem to begin with, “We really love him but….” Reactive dogs take what novice handlers throw at them – emotion, confusion, frustration – and magnify it. They jump higher, spin faster, mouth harder. Helping these dogs is pretty easy, once you know a few of the tricks that will be explained here.
