Different Options For Dog Behavior Training

There are a few options when it comes to dog behavior training for your furry friend. First, if you can afford it, you could take your dog to an obedience school. There are lots of professional dog trainers who run their own schools and classes designed to teach dog owners the right way to train their dogs. These trainers are highly experienced with all types of dogs and temperaments.

But most of the unusually behavior can be corrected in the house if you learn how to do it yourself. It’s not rocket science, just needs little bit of patience and love. Dogs, specially young ones, are full of energy and if you don’t help them spend it outside, they will probably use it on chewing your furniture, slippers or jumping all over the house.If dog sounds bored and under-exercised make sure he is getting adequate physical and mental exercise every day (running around the backyard doesn’t cut it). A larger dog will need more than that.

For mental stimulation, sign your dog up for obedience classes, or if you’ve already done that, try classes on something like agility, tracking, herding, etc that your dog might be suited for. Also, make sure he is given lots of acceptable and attractive items to chew on and play with while he is home alone. If he’s being adequately exercised and mentally stimulated, the destructive behavior will stop.


Low stress level and the associated fear can lead to a great many behavior problems. One of the goals of a training program is to raise dog’s stress level so that it is less sensitive to fear eliciting stimuli. Different symptoms associated with fear are separation anxiety, fear aggression, submissive urinating, house breaking, not coming when called, excessive barking, jumping, and chewing.

Dog behavior training is an incredibly important part of owning a dog. In fact, most pet advocates feel that a commitment to obedience training should be a prerequisite to adopting an animal and for pet ownership–especially for a dog.
