With a disobedient, unruly, wilful, mischievous, destructive and/or vexed dog, getting to the root cause of the misbehaviour and correcting it leaves many owners at a loss. It becomes an insurmountable problem that is endured and is left to persist, leading to discord. In the clear majority of cases, the behaviour is because the dog does not feel comfortable, and is taking to the offence to keep the big, scary thing at bay.
Whether your dog presents common or not so common behavioural issues, please do not worry, I can, and will, guide you through training and behaviour modification. Dogs operate on a social structure, a hierarchy. You need to gain trust in a non-confrontational way and simply establish quiet dominance, to which your dog will respond and present more positive behaviours. Dogs are incredibly intelligent, your dog’s natural predisposition is to look to you for protection and direction, an instinctual role, just like human parenting. You need to assert clear boundaries, rules, limitations and condition good behaviours. ‘Firm, friendly and fair’ is my mantra.
