How to react when raising dogs is the most important thing you can learn. When we raise a dog we want to teach them how to be a good dog, this means that we must know how to react in a stressful situation. Of course, not all situations are easy to handle, there are many things that can stress dogs out, but there are some basic steps you can take to get through these stressors.
Of course, when we bring a dog into our home we expect them to behave. We also expect them to be obedient, but most importantly, we want them to be happy. One of the things that may set a dog off is the way you treat them. Some dogs feel threatened by their owner’s affection, and they act out in response.
You should not be distracted when your dog acts up. You should pay attention to them and give them attention whenever they do something wrong. However, if you allow this to continue for long enough, you can create an antagonistic relationship between you and your dog.
If you find that you are not getting any attention from your dog and he is barking and biting at your door or your own place, you should leave him alone for a bit. Try bringing him to his own place and start giving him a treat. This will help them realize that he is in his own place and that he is not the center of attention.
Don’t fall into the trap of using your pet as a punching bag either. Many owners would probably think that this is a great idea. Dogs are pack animals and are territorial, so they may react violently to you when you are away, especially if they are in their own space.
Keep your distance and don’t raise your voice when your dog is misbehaving. Keep yourself calm, and don’t try to make them obey. A simple “No” is a good enough response, and then let them know this with a treat. After some time, you can bring them back to your home.
Dogs are pack animals and should not be left alone for extended periods of time. If you find that your dog is never leaving your house for extended periods of time, you should consider taking him to the vet. Your vet will be able to tell you if you are neglecting your dog, or if they are just having an off day.
Giving your dog treats at every meal will help them feel appreciated. Dogs want to feel loved and they are very grateful for these little things, as well as praise. Once you have taught your dog to get a treat for every meal, it will help you avoid giving the treats over again.
Your dog needs to learn that they are worth being happy. This may sound harsh, but it is true, so don’t be upset when you do not get a treat, or they whine about it and you don’t care. If you’re getting frustrated, make a note of it, and remember to always be nice and make sure to give them their treats.
Make sure that when you go to bed that you leave your dog at home with you. It’s never fun when you have to put your best friend out, so take him home in the evening. As soon as you get up in the morning, just toss him into the kennel and give him his morning treat.
When your dog is in the kennel, your home is safe and secure. The reason this is important is because dogs will bark if you are in the home at night. When you are alone at night, it’s important to keep them close to you because they can’t do anything to harm you.
These are just a few tips on how to handle the topic of raising dogs when you are a first time dog owner. Hopefully by now you can understand how important it is to be calm and sensitive when you are handling this delicate matter.
