When your dog rummages through the garbage or barks at the mailman, once again, it can be easy to feel like your dog’s behavior will never get any better. At Happy Dog’s our goal is to help owners help their dogs to be successful at behaving in any situation. This means changing the environment, your actions or your training to influence your dog’s behavior in a positive way!
There are lots of reasons why your dog might have trouble behaving well. The environment may be over stimulating which makes it hard for your dog to focus and remember training cues. The behavior you’re asking for may not have been reinforced frequently enough. Or, your dog may be too anxious or uncomfortable to behave well or calmly in whatever situation they’re in. Whatever the reason, there are actions you can take as an owner and trainer to help your dog succeed in any situation.
