1.03 - Problem? What Problem

Living with dogs is all about relationships. When owners enjoy their dog’s behavior and company, the relationship blossoms. When pets misbehave, the relationship sours Unfortunately, dog behavior, temperament and training problems are extremely common and utterly predictable. Temperament problems make a dog a challenge to live with. And behavior and training problems are the #1 terminal illness for pet dogs. Behavior, temperament and training problems are the most common reason for people to surrender or abandon their dogs. Ironically, all behavior, temperament and training problems may be so easily prevented, and most may be resolved. The secret is to try to see things from the dogs’ point of view. People often consider their dog’s behavior to be inappropriate, unacceptable and problematic. However, the dog views these so-called “problems” as quite normal, natural and necessary doggy behavior. Quite the culture clash!
