Many people think that behaviour counselling
means that their dog needs a ‘shrink’, this however isn’t the case. In an ideal world
, humans and dogs in households would live together in perfect harmony
. Dogs have adapted to our modern way of life and the pace at which we live quite well, but stress
does affect them in a number of ways which can lead to behavioural problems.
The types of behavioural problems that can arise include:
Separation Problems (Separation Anxiety)
Fearful and phobic behaviours to auditory and visual stimuli
Attention-seeking behaviours e.g. barking, jumping up
House training problems
Problems during travel
Destructiveness e.g digging, chewing
Training problems e.g. poor recall, pulling on leash
With time, patience, understanding
many of these problems can be addressed, giving our dogs (and their humans
) happier, healthier more fulfilling lives.
