Dogs really like to dig. You will have to train Fido to stop them. If you catch them in action, you say “no.” Then confuse them with a toy. It will not help to scold them once they are done. You need to be consistent in digging, not afterward. Tip: Give your dog a sandbox where it can relieve itself. Bury some of your favorite toys and watch them enjoy them. Lots of praise – it will help them learn to walk all day in that area.
Dogs, especially puppies, explore the world with their mouths. They like to chew because it humbles them. But it ends your stuff. Worse – they can eat something like socks that can block their intestines. Get rid of this habit now. Give them toys to chew, and then remove items they should not grind. If you catch them chewing on something they shouldn’t do, say “no,” put something in an authorized toy, and then commend them for chewing.
There is one surefire way to prevent this: Never feed your dog food on the table. If they do not receive the crumbs, they will not learn to beg. You can take it out of the room while you eat or put it in their crate. Or teach them to go to a particular place and wait for it.
He Doesn’t Come When He’s Called.
Always praise your dog when it comes to you, whether you call or not. That teaches that coming to you is good. Say “come” or “here.” They may not understand what you are looking for if you simply call them by their first name. If they do not come, do not chase after them. Call them back while you’re away. That can make them follow you. If they have not already arrived, tell them to stay, and then follow them.
Help your dog learn to walk calmly next to you. Never let them pull, otherwise, they will learn that doing it sometimes is rewarding. Keep the leash short but loose. Stand where you feel strong. They will stop to see why you are not leaving. When they come back, reward it and keep going. After a few days, they will notice that the pull is getting nowhere.tin
Concerns About Separation
If your dog gets upset when you leave, teach them that you will always come back. At first, leave your dog alone for a few minutes. Stay away for a while each time. Give them a chewing toy and leave it on the radio or TV. Be calm when you go and come back, so they know that being alone is okay. Crate training can prevent all such problems in some dogs. But it may not work with a worried old dog. Ask your veterinarian for advice.
Is your dog crying? If you treat them, look at them, or do anything without ignoring them, you are teaching them that complaining works. To stop it, turn your back when they cry, fold your arms and look away, or leave the room. Treat and play with them when they are not complaining.
He barks at the door.
To cut off barking, teach your dog a new habit. Choose a place inside the door. Then teach them to lie down and sit up when you say, “Go to your place.” That will help them calm down and give them something to do while they wait for the greeting. Have a good friend come to the door, but only open it when your dog is quiet. Do this enough, and they will learn to relax if they want that treatment.
It is natural for a dog to greet people with a leap. But that can scare away visitors. Stay away if your dog jumps on you. Ignore your dog unless it has front paws on the ground. After that, you can greet and treat them. Or tell them to stay and wait until they do before you hand them over. Try to keep your greetings low. That helps your dog learn to control his happiness. Make sure they don’t bother or intimidate strangers.
Any dog can bite if it feels threatened or scared. But having fun with a dog early on teaches them to feel comfortable around people. Gradually expose them to various settings so that they feel safe. Spend more time with them so that they learn to trust people. Always look for signs that your dog is uncomfortable, and do everything you can to make them feel better. Be especially careful with children and food. If without your efforts your dog is small, see your vet or pet trainer for help.
A violent dog is usually the one who is scared or frightened. Work with a trained trainer to learn how to teach your dog to trust you healthily. Never leave an aggressive dog alone with kids or unknown people, even if you think it will not hurt anyone. You may need to silence them.
He is always barking.
Some dogs bark at things that others ignore. Some bark in frustration. Do not yell at your dog when it barks. That can make it worse. Listening training can help correct the barking of frustration. If your dog learns to sit still before he does something fun like walking, he will learn to control his emotions. If they are out all day, taking them inside for a few hours may be helpful. But you may need to work with a veterinarian or trainer.
