Gracie On crazy dog behavior
Young dogs are like young people in many ways; one of those ways is that we need to learn the same type of social behavior and ‘life skills’ that people do. Problem is, that what comes naturally to people when teaching their own kids (they’re the same species, for kibble’s sake!), isn’t so obvious when it comes to teaching your dog how to behave.
dogs ALSO need to learn to not act crazy
Dogs need to learn “sit”, “stay”, “down” and all that, but we also need to learn about other stuff like how to behave calmly in very exciting situations and how to calm ourselves down once we do get a little carried away. I know you’ve all seen dogs that ‘go ballistic’ and can’t seem to pull it all together (and their people can’t pull it all together either!). This kind of unruly behavior can make it impossible to communicate with the dog, get him under control and teach him anything productive. It’s a real problem!
Dogs pulling on leash, dogs lunging at other dogs. Dogs barking and racing up and down behind the fence (I bet you thought we were having fun, didn’t you?). Dogs going nuts when the doorbell or phone rings. Dogs jumping up and knocking your family and guests down. Dogs barging out the door and dashing down the street! Dogs running around the house disrupting everything! Dogs nipping and biting at clothes and skin out of excitement! Unruliness is everywhere!
Most often, unruliness by dogs seems to make people think we need more exercise, which frequently just makes things worse (like fuel on the fire, as it were!). Unruly behavior creates more unruly behavior, and on it goes. Unruliness is a dog behavior problem that almost everyone has at some time in their lives!
