Why are there some behavioural problems associated with what should be a simple task-Feeding your dog?
I, like many people, have looked at the work of those who seek to inspire us to achieve all that we can, believe that we can make things happen and succeed, even in many areas that are out of our comfort zone or current experience.
Pulling on the lead, or leash, is something a very large number of dog owners experience, many will just accept that it is an inevitable part of owning a dog, grit their teeth and continue to engage in the habitual “Tug-of-War” that going for a walk means to them. Going for a walk is not a pleasure but becomes an unpleasant chore that must be endured.
During one of our recent ‘Foundation Courses’ the question about the significance of a dog wagging its tail came up again, a signal which can often be misunderstood.
Following some recent queries, I want to clarify the myth of different breeds when it comes to behaviour, as misunderstanding will always lead to more problems.
Although we know that all dogs are individuals, they fall into three basic response categories when any form of force is used when getting them to do, or not, do something.
