Why do dogs put their bum towards you and turn their eyes away when they want to come to you. Do they not know that you are the one they came for?
You know what, its true.
If you were ever on a boat, at a restaurant or just at a park and your dog was sitting a few feet away from you - and just a head away from where you're sitting - If you were on a boat and your dog put his rear end towards you, it was to check out which seat to jump on and to see if anyone else was sitting near you before he decided to jump up and see if you were sitting there. He isn't looking you in the eye at all - he's looking at your knees.
Now I understand the saying, 'a dog is a mans best friend' but dogs are just more loyal to people who they are physically closer to, because, like human beings, they have no choice. We want our dogs closer to us because we feel comfortable with them.
I'm not saying a dog's not a good pet - it is and it is very lovable - but like the saying goes, 'a man's best friend is a dog, but a dog is a mans best friend too'. They can become the person's most beloved companion and friend and help with things that people might be nervous about.
So here's how to become a dog whisperer in your own home to get along better with your dog.
Start right now, today.
Have you ever asked your dog to do something and he wouldn't? Perhaps he took a long time to come when you called him, or just ignored you and took no interest in what you had to say or where you wanted to go.
Maybe you tried to use a firm voice with him but he didn't care at all and just did what he wanted to do. It could be that he was doing what he wanted to do and not responding to you because he could hear another person speaking. It could be that he was playing but he could have been ignoring you.
These are just a few of the things that can cause bad manners in dogs, and I'm sure you can think of many more. So how do you want your dog to behave when you ask him to do something, or give him any instruction? The same way that a person behaves when they need to do something for themselves? How many times have you had to call on your dog to stop doing something and he didn't, or got you angry, upset and frustrated?
I think it would be a shame to have your dog behave in that way all the time, even when he's just being a dog and doing what he wants to do. It doesn't make him a bad dog at all, and this is where we'll start.
He should start acting more properly towards you - he should treat you the way that you treat him when he behaves properly. If you give him a command when you want him to do something, say 'come' for example, then he should respond. He should stop when you tell him to stop, and should listen when you give him any instructions. It's the same as a person telling someone else to stop doing something, the same way as you would tell your dog to stop if he was doing something that upset you or got you upset. A person would be kind enough to not tell someone to stop until they'd first got their own back to them - a kind way of saying that, so your dog should do the same.
He should know that he's not allowed to do something that's upsetting or annoys you, and he should stop when you tell him to. He's still a puppy, remember, and it's how he learns. So when you tell him to stop, if he gets cross or ignores you, then ignore him. He shouldn't be allowed to do that. If he does it enough, then he'll get better at being a good puppy. If he does it too often, then remember this next time you see him doing it, and treat him to something nice for being good. Don't nag him, and tell him he's bad for doing what he's done, or tell him that he must stop and be obedient, and then you'll never get any further with training. If he's just a puppy, then when he acts up, you need to keep ignoring him until he learns the rules of the house. You should not nag him about it or tell him that he's bad for doing what he did. You need to make the lesson stick.
If you can make him stop his bad behaviour, then make him stop. He should not keep acting up when you've asked him to stop - he should know that he must listen to you. If he can stop himself when you tell him to, you'll get further with his training, and he'll be a better dog. So don't nag him, or tell him off. This is just a simple and basic rule that you need to follow. You should not allow him to annoy you in any way - he should be a puppy, remember, so it's easy to ignore him. So if you see him misbehaving, then just ignore him. If he does it every day, then you need to be firm with him and tell him to stop. Don't nag him, and don't tell him he's a bad dog.
Don't punish your dog for his bad behaviour. A good dog does not misbehave, so why would you punish him? Why should he need to be punished for not listening to you? You should not punish your dog for acting up. You should also not punish your dog for acting in a protective manner, or trying to protect himself or his territory from something that he sees as a threat. It's just a part of what makes him a good dog, and he's right to be protective.
Remember that a puppy dog will be a puppy dog. A dog needs to learn that if he wants to be a good dog, he has to learn a few rules. The problem is, we expect a puppy to behave like a puppy for the first year, and to stop behaving like a puppy when he's older.
As a result, many people go to extreme lengths to try to get their dog to stop misbehaving as quickly as possible. Some people take their dogs to classes where the instructor holds them by the collar while they give them a shock every time they misbehave. Others try to teach their dogs to do a trick every time they stop misbehaving, but this won't last - it's unrealistic and impractical. The same also goes for punishing your dog when he misbehaves. Once you have learned your dog's behavioural patterns, and how to deal with his individual misbehaviour, then you won't need to keep punishing him for it.
Another thing that will change as your dog gets older is that he may suddenly start misbehaving more than usual. Sometimes, older dogs don't know the difference between a good dog and a naughty one. As you start to teach him that he has to behave in certain ways, he may behave in a way that you did not teach him. When this happens, he will stop misbehaving, but you should try to make sure that he is enjoying the fun that you are trying to teach him.
If you do need to punish your dog, how you discipline him is up to you. Some people love to use the techniques taught in "The Explosive Puppy" book, others believe that spanking him is too harsh, and try to gently guide him towards a better way of behaving.
