Cultivating Obedience in Your Dogs
Obedience in Your Dogs
They are man’s "best friend", but like your real friends,
dogs also have annoying habits that you normally despise. But because
you love them, you suffer for it until you can’t take anymore. Just
as we all try to talk to our human friends about their bad habits,
it is also vital that we do the same for our pets. This is not impossible
since dogs are proven to be intelligent animals. Experience also
proves that they can pick up and understand instructions with proper
training. In fact, training your human friends to ditch their bad
habits is harder than training your pets.
are naturally diggers. It might be some part of their genes that
make them such enthusiastic diggers. It is amusing to watch them
dig and bury whatever they like. But, it is equally irritating when
your pets leave unsightly clumps of dirt on your manicured lawn.
Other than the cartoon tradition of burying bones, there are other
reasons why your pets dig. These reasons also differ depending on
their breed and age. Younger and more "macho" breeds like
Great Danes or Rottweilers dig because of pent-up and excess energy.
If this is the case, frequent exercise, walks, and training release
these energies. Your pets are likely to be too exhausted to think
of digging and your lawn efforts are not wasted. However, if your
mutt is of the breeding age, the most likely reason behind its digging
is a female. Your pet is probably digging to reach the next door
bitch. Having your pet neutered is the only solution. However, there
are cases when your pets dig because they just want to. In cases
like this, your best bet is to train your dog not to dig by spraying
the grass with non-toxic repellants. You can set aside a portion
of the yard in which your pets can dig as much as they want. Remember
to find them a spot in your backyard and not on your front lawn.
than lawn-digging, destructive chewing is a common problem of most
pet owners. There are three reasons why mutts engage in this activity:
attention, boredom, and teething. Neglecting your pets’ play time
but chasing them when they got hold of your shoes are common scenarios.
Scenarios like these teach them that chewing stuff is a way to frolic
with you. Bored pets also have strong inclinations to be chewers.
Teething is also a likely cause of chewing problems especially with
younger pets. A way to stop your pets’ chewing habits is to spend
time with them through playing. Provide dogs with chewable toys
and play catch. They will soon understand that these chew toys are
the only things they are allowed to chew.
problems are easily prevented if you make it clear to your dogs
that you expect obedience from them. There are dog training camps
for unruly pets and lots of articles in the internet for personal
dog training. Dogs are not problems at all if you cultivate obedience
