Food Aggression in Dogs - It Can Be Solved

In most of the animal cop shows, a dog with any food aggression is put to sleep right away. I agree that this behavior is dangerous and has to be taken very seriously.

However, by claiming the food and correcting your dog each time he becomes locked on the food, you can redirect him... and overcome the dog's food aggression behavior problem.

Don't destroy an otherwise good dog. Solve the behavior problem instead!

Dog Rehabilitation -
What's The Hardest Part?

The hardest thing to learn in dog rehabilatation is that once the owner has returned, it is no longer in your hands.

That is hard to swallow. But I cannot become emotionally attached to every dog I work with to that point. Too often, you know the owners aren't really going to be consistent. That will cause the dog to go right back into his prior dog behavior problem habits, and be unhappy the rest of his life.

I would want to take the dog home ... but I would end up with way to many dogs!

If you're not providing 100% of what your dog needs, then you aren't giving him your best. If you rescued him, yes that's a nice beginning... but it's only a beginning. Are you going to confine him to a yard or house, so that all you've really done is take him from one kennel to a larger "kennel?" Then you wonder why he develops dog behavior problems?

Dogs are constant travellers. They are constantly walking or running, and it is an absolute necessity that they do it every day!

Bucking Bronco Dog -
Recognize This Dog Behavior Problem?

No! No! NOOO!

That is the common reaction from people who are trying to walk a bucking bronco type dog. This dog behavior problem is not "Bad Dog behavior" as some would say, but a result of lack of exercise and discipline.

To handle it correctly, correct the dog each time he starts to buck. Then allow him to release himself (any stop or pause). Continue like that and he will calm down and you can move forward.

The whole point is to stay there until you get one hundred percent. If you ask for less than the best, you will never get it.

Correcting Dog Behavior Problem -
What Does CLAIM Something Mean? How Do I?

"My dog goes after my slippers," a client complained. "Help! How can I solve this dog behavior problem?"

ANSWER: You CLAIM your slippers!

You "claim" an item or an area to assert your authority over it - to let the dog know that it belongs first and foremost to YOU, the leader of the pack. The dog is not supposed to touch your property.

Likewise, if a dog soils an area of the carpet, part of your correction procedure involves "claiming" that spot as your own ... and the dog won't go there again. The dog is not supposed to cross the boundary into your space without your permission. This he understands instinctively, as it is powerful, silent dog pack language - sometimes called "dog whisper".

HOW do you claim something?

By stepping in front of it with your feet spread halfway between the military "Atten-hut!" and "At ease." Have your head and shoulders up confidently the entire time, and also be sure to maintain direct eye contact with your dog throughout this entire procedure.

Make the dog sit or lie down.

You keep standing there authoritatively, staring, until the dog turns away from you or moves away completely. That means she has surrendered. She now recognizes the item or the space as yours - that she is not supposed to go there without your express permission.

Dog Humping and Dog Mounting Behavior -
Which is which?

Some people believe that a dog humping or dog mounting you is the same thing. In truth, it is not.

Dog humping is when a dog places himself under one's leg and lifts it in the air.

Dog mounting is when a dog places himself on the back or leg of another and continues to ride on it.

Although both are dog dominance issues that require professional help, dog mounting is the more serious dog behavior problem.

Dog humping is an attempt to embarrass and ridicule, while dog mounting is actually a challenge of one's position, a threat and claim of leadership. The dog is saying: "I am going to be the dominant one!"

For more information about dog humping and dog mounting behavior, see the Dog Dominance Behavior Articles by Rena Murray.
