|Dogs are not people or children! Love doesnít = respect, or rank of pecking order in the animal world! No matter how much we want them to be, no matter how much we see them that way! They may have needs your not meeting. Love does not equal respect, control and obedience. Showing them emotion and love and seeing that returned by them does not mean you are respected as their pack leader! We see their intelligence, child like reasoning, personality, responses, how they relate to us and read those human traits into them. You can still pretend they are human if you remember they are not; and answer their wild needs, if their drives are expressed and utilized. Know they are a pack animal, Learn what that means. They are meant to be hunters, they have egos and constantly aware and try to establish a pecking order. There is a wildness and nature that needs to be expressed and fulfilled. Whether you are alone or with a family, have one dog or ten you all are a group or pack. Dogs must be given firm clear consistent direction from you and all humans in your group or there is confusion and the constant testing of rank in the pecking order amongst the dogs may be deemed by one or more of them to be above one or more of the humans. You are likely raising them as a human ( pet ) in a house, providing their food, every need, without opportunities to roam and mate at will is not natural to them. They have drives and behaviors designed into them to do those things for them selves. Confining them in a house most of their life, or worse to a room or chained to the same confined area day after day is like prison and tends to create anxiety and narotic behaviors. Dogs need to be controlled, given direction, praise, given daily interaction with yourself and others, space and time to roam, to play and to feel useful, athletic and talented. This means walking and a roaming mode several times a week, (with a group of two, three or more if possible). There should be a daily job/ work/ workout; (daily progressive training), (at least three or more days a week) then some play time; (ball/ toy time), and then a run or weighted walk till signs of being tired before putting the dog away and letting him eat, drink and finally sleep! As human you should be the boss, the pack leader that sets the pace and life style. If not the dog tries follow the lead you show, if none at all, he tries to follow his own lead, uncertain and experimenting! [That is a red flag for trouble]! His dog nature and drives guide him, but with out example and control of a pack, a mother/ father from a natural environment to guide, no natural guidance at all, no consequences, no controls, without knowing how, no reference, (except the humans)! Without a dog pack and in a human world the dogs often end up expressing his drives with some narotic behaviors we donít like, and canít allow! Which leads to us isolating the dog further, separating, spending less time around the dog! This only increases the problems till you feel like disposing of the dog, no longer like him, or care to be around the dog/ dogs! Donít allow this type of tragedy! It happens to so many all the time. It does not have to be that way. Itís easily avoided, by learning to understand your nature and your dogs nature and fulfilling that. It has rewards you, your family and your dog will love, and causes a communication and bond between you all that you canít believe you were missing ! Problem solving after bad habits have been formed and reinforced and especially if the Dog is matured (three years and above) it can be hard or next to impossible to fix at times. So I will not make Guaranteeís in solving narotic bad habits! But most often any can be solved over time by starting a training regiment and trying different methods specific to those problems. A week or two of boarding and training with us is not enough time to correct problems occurring from years without proper direction and training. Continued training as directed must done by owner/ handler and family supported as well as recommended changes in life style are a must if any changes are expected to last!|
