Usually the folks who seem to do best with dog training are remarkably normal, well-adjusted and present themselves as mature and emotionally stable. ?
The point is that nice, calm people often don’t have a whole lot of dog behavior problems like some people do–just by virtue of that they don’t have all the craziness, yelling and people and kids screaming making their dogs bonkers and neurotic.
If you want your dog to be mellow and calm, you may face a formidable obstacle if you live in a funhouse or with screaming, wild kids. Many times when peoples’ children have Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) the family dog suffers from it too. Coincidentally, dog owners often going through marital or financial problems report that their dogs have become aggressive, edgy and/or defiant.
The moral here is that if you want your dog to be happy, calm and friendly, the first thing to do is be a happy, calm and friendly person yourself. Hopefully, you can get family or housemates to be happy, calm and friendly people too, if they are not already so.
If being well and wonderful still doesn’t seem to be enough to get your dog trained, call us when you have a few minutes to chat about dog training.
We look forward to hearing from you.
What makes our dog training method different is that what we do is mostly about getting the people to change their behavior to influence the dog.
Often people make a few minor changes in what they do in regard to their dog and see a big difference in the dog’s behavior immediately.
