There is no such thing as a perfect dog. Even the gentlest, most obedient
and well-behaved dog can develop bad habits. Understand why your dog
misbehaves and, if possible, remove the cause otherwise it will create
the problem in his further training.
Prevention is always better than cure. The dog is a very loving and
affectionate animal; they don’t have feelings for revenge.
Dogs that destroy things at home when left alone do so not for reasons
of revenge, but because they are bored, frustrated or suffering from
separation anxiety. Some habits that we find unpleasant are part of
normal dog behavior, making them difficult to overcome, but consistent
retraining is usually effective. In case of serious bad habits, seek
help from a recommended professional trainer.
order to correct bad habits, you must first understand how they
developed. You may find some behavior unacceptable, but to your
dog it might be the natural way to behave.
When a problem develops, work out the reason for it. Ask yourself
whether the dog realizes that you regard it as wrong, and ascertain
whether the behavior can be prevented, redirected, or changed –
either by yourself or a trainer.
Chewing bones, or toys that look like bones, is normal canine behavior.
Chewing a shoe covered in human scent is natural for dog, but it
is an unacceptable behavior to humans. Prevent this bad habit by
never giving the dog old shoes to chew. The dog will learn to restrict
its chewing to allowable objects only.
destructive is satisfying to dogs, it is unacceptable to humans.
Giving the dog too many toys teaches it to destroy other items.
Limit the toys that you make available to the dog to three or four
that are different from the household articles. Many dogs delight
in chewing objects, shredding newspapers, and even peeling wallpaper
from walls. However, this desire to be “creative” requires
acceptable objects, such as bones or chewies.
It is important that the dog understands what behavior is unacceptable.
Only discipline the dog when it is actively behaving and reprimand
it using a stern voice. Discipline the dog as soon as he misbehaves,
since later it will not be able to understand the reason behind
