What is a behaviour problem?
A behaviour problem is usually seen as a behaviour expressed by a dog that is not normal or unwanted, these behaviours can include aggression, resource guarding, being very reactive, noise sensitive, anxious, stressed, barking, chewing, digging, jumping up, house soiling to name just a few.
Why does behaviour problems occur?
There are many reasons why a dog might present unwanted or problem behaviours these can range from boredom, trauma to medical conditions. It is vital to get a professional’s opinion and help. The dogs mind is as unique as ours and thus needs a deep and clear understanding to deal with the problems that they are faced with in order to get a positive outcome.
What do I do?
Although the internet can be very helpful it is highly recommended that you take your dog to the vet to make sure there is no underlying diseases causing the problem behaviour. If that is ruled out a professional canine behaviourist such as myself should be contacted to arrange a meeting, upon the consultation a behaviour modification plan is drawn up to help you and your dog, I work closely with owners and dogs using reward based training to make sure the animal is able to recover.
