Dog Behavior

I know how frustrated you must feel, how to  deal with dog behavior problems can be overwhelming. When we have a picture in our minds on how we want our dogs to be, it's not the dog that pulls on the leash, has separation anxiety, barks at other dogs or even bites! 

Please know you are not alone! My guess is that more than 95% of dog owners find that their dog has at least one bad behavior they would like to correct.

Some of the most common dog behavior problems are discussed below. I hope you find some comfort in reading stories and suggestions in how to help you and your dog overcome these behavior struggles. And remember, stay calm and positive and  you will be surprised on how quickly you can help your dog find his way back to being your dream dog!
