Reversing Bad Behavior In
Your dog may have started as the best behaved pooch in the planet, but now it may just be a little brat that
will not listen to anybody. Bad behaviors can be developed by a previously well behaved dog at any point in its
As the owner it is imperative that you curve such bad behaviors as they can sometimes be more than just
annoying, and sometimes downright dangerous. So how do you curve those bad behaviors when they seem so engrained in
your dog already?
You must start by remembering that before your dog changes you must change as well. The bad habits that your dog
may exhibit may be more of an owner problem than a dog problem.
Behaviors Related To Fear And Reversing Bad Behavior In Dogs
Fear can be a really badly influencing force on your dog. It may not have started as a big problem and the
howling and sometimes even the aggression could have been prevented by the owner’s actions. You have to remember
that dogs and humans are very different and they react to things differently.
While consoling a fearful child is appropriate, consoling a fearful dog with reassuring words and hugs is not

It Is Not You, It’s Me
Keep in mind that a lot of the behavior problems come from our own interactions with dogs. As much as we love
them, and they do become a part of the family, they are not human members of the family. They do not wish to be
treated as humans; they are dogs and they like being dogs. If you are having trouble understanding dog behavior or
with training your dog away from undesired actions it is recommended
that you consult a professional.
You should not think of your dog as a bad dog; your furry friend has just not received something from you, but
you can be the pack leader that your dog needs. When you become the leader you will both live a happy and healthy
life and you won’t need to learn more about reversing bad behavior in dogs.
