Why is my dog sniffing everything in the house?
why is my dog smelling every where i am in the house? is it ok for her to smell everything, she was just born and i am worried about her health.
In response to Carlisa's question, I would be glad to answer your questions. If you want to use your name, I ask that you include that on your reply.
What is happening to your dog could indicate a lack of confidence in her, and could be a problem. You need to establish what is going on. My personal view is, to find the source. You could try to find out what the dog does to learn something, and find out where she gets her information.
I can't speak for all dogs, but I have never been around a dog who was not allowed to enter other parts of the house or other animals.
Also, the dog should be socialised so that if there is nothing there she is interested in, she isn't alarmed and aggressive.
If there is something in your house that she does not like, perhaps you could put it in a bag and take it out. If she has a good nose, and is being playful, it will be more likely she will not be afrd of it.
I have had an old greyhound who was used to being outside, who when in the house at night would go into a room and go into a deep sleep, or sleep on and off for up to 20 minutes, while she was still alert and looking around. I did not realise what she was doing, until I started to get worried that she was not going to come out of the room to greet me when I went to get her in the morning. She would come out when I called, or came and got her. I found out that she had decided that that particular room was comfortable enough for her to lay down and sleep in. When she was being taken outdoors, she would do the same. It could have been a different room, she was not interested in the one I chose for her, or it could have been a matter of smell. She had never been inside another room when she was an outside dog, or inside my room when I was not there.
I would try not to make her sleep in that room when she is indoors. You could also try putting another dog in the room for her to investigate, so that she is less likely to stay put.
I also think that it is important that you keep the dog on a lead in the house, as if you take your attention off the dog for a second and she pulls, or tries to go for something in the room, it is much more likely that she would be distracted from her bed and go for that object, which may lead to her being hurt. And you will need to ensure that she is safe while you are walking the dog, as she is not yet able to protect herself, she may come across as an annoying nuisance to other dogs. You don't want to lose her to another dog while she is not yet able to protect herself. Also, some of the furniture that you put into the room may not be safe for a baby or young child to fall on.
We have also had some situations where the dog has been very stressed, either being taken out of the garden to go in the house, or being taken away from the house for trning. This was either because of illness or injury of an aggressive dog that came to her. During that time she would sleep on the floor in the living room, as that seemed to be the most relaxed place for her to be. The other dog would sleep in the living room too, just in case the first dog was going to get the opportunity to attack either of them.
It can be very stressful for any dog that has been in an accident or was ill, and is now being left alone in a dark room with only the TV for company, not to mention the lack of company in the garden. And any dog can become bored and restless in a dark room. Therefore, if your dog is showing signs of stress in these situations, be sure to give her lots of treats to make her feel at home. Some dogs will use these times of stress and boredom to get some relief, so be sure to keep an eye on her and help to prevent anything like that happening.
In these situations, it is best that you get to know the local dog pound as they will have good information on what is good for your dog and what could be harmful.
It is possible to trn your dog to sleep in your room without a crate and without any stress. However, you should only let the dog sleep in your room for a short period of time and never let her sleep in your bed, as this is not good for her and you could be bitten. Dogs who sleep in your bed are also likely to be covered in drool and you don't want to be stuck with that all over your bedclothes and duvet.
You might be able to get the dog to sleep outside the room with a dog bed on top of a sleeping bag. Obviously, this is not good if the weather is bad and the bed is uncomfortable for the dog. You might also be able to do a similar thing for her to sleep in the bathroom if it is not too far from her bedroom. These sorts of strategies will help to stop your dog from trying to jump up on you while you are trying to get some sleep at night.
Another great idea is to try a crate-less approach. Get the dog used to going into the crate without her being in it at first. Once she gets used to this, move her into a crate and close the door. When she goes into the crate, immediately open the door agn and give her a treat. If your dog is still jumping up on you after a few sessions, the door should be left open for longer periods of time before the treat is given. This will make sure that your dog knows that once the door is open, she is free to go anywhere she wants.
Keep in mind that once the dog has mastered this behavior, you will need to close the door before she goes in the crate to give her a treat. This is because the dog has to stay in the crate until she has eaten the treat.
This strategy might not be suitable if you live in a building that does not allow dogs and you don't want your dog going into other people's homes. For example, you might find your landlord doesn't want to put up with the dog jumping up on them as they enter the building. You might find that the dog is too aggressive in a house full of other pets. If any of these situations apply to you, you might want to think about getting rid of the dog. It is very important to get some kind of behavior modification before trying to get rid of a dog.
You have to know your dog's temperament in order to successfully work with her. Your dog's temperament is something that is a lifetime choice. It is something that you have to work on and correct.
# 8. Why Dogs Do What They Do
You will often hear about behavioral issues when a dog has reached the point that their owner no longer wants to keep them. Sometimes, these dogs are abandoned because the owner could no longer handle their dog's behavior or did not know how to. Sometimes, it happens because the owners cannot keep the dog in an apartment with a roommate. It happens when a dog's owner has to leave the house due to an illness.
Most of the time, the dog's behavior is only a nuisance, and it's not an appropriate
