Dog Behavior

Understanding a dog isn’t always easy. It is common to experience confusion when trying to figure out what it is that our pups are trying to tell us. Our Dog Behavior page is where you find all articles related to puppy performance, and where we try to shed some light on frequent canine conduct and how to deal with them.

If your dog has developed unwanted behaviors such as barking, digging up the yard, pulling clothes off the line, growling, or peeing indoors – you are probably eager to put a stop to it. Before we can tackle a bad habit, it is crucial to understand what causes the behavior, and why your dog is acting the way that he is. When you encounter the cause and the source of the problem, it becomes much easier to find a solution. This also applies when trying to see to your dog’s basic needs. You need to be able to spot when something isn’t quite right. You can do this by keeping a close eye on any behavioral changes that might indicate pain or discomfort.

These are some of the topics you can read about in this section:
+ Excessive barking and why dogs bark.
+ Anxiety and irrational fears.
+ How to deal with a clingy dog.
+ Dog and people aggression.
+ Digging, chewing, and other destructive behaviors.

…And much more. The mysterious world of dog comportment is big, versatile, and often surprising. We have articles about both behavioral problems and how to solve them using positive reinforcement methods. We also write about funny things our dogs do to manipulate us into sneaking them an extra treat!
