Last night I was serenaded throughout the night by my neighbor's noisy pack of dogs. Because last night had a full moon, the coyotes were out and disturbing the neighborhood dogs with their yapping and howling. My dogs also joined in with the others when they first heard the coyotes start in, but as soon as I told them to quiet down, they obeyed. Apparently the neighbor's sleep like the dead, because they never quiet their dogs at night.

If the dog runs past you, turn 180 degrees and run in the other direction. Watch over your shoulder and as the dog barking at dogs - ueno.com.br - gets close, turn and encourage the why does my dog bark at other dogs to come right to you. As your dog begins to understand the exercise, and you are starting to get further away from him, try to make yourself as tall as you can when you call him in. If you drop down into a hunch or crouch then the smaller you will be to the dog.

While keeping your dog on a leash, provide a meeting with another canine. Do this in a place that your dog is not familiar with. Some dogs get territorial when they are in a familiar area and might feel threatened by the other animal.

Perhaps you have seen the show "It's Me or the Dog". This is a program that demonstrates in real life what can happen when a dog has not been sent to dog obedience School. The lessons learned can help your family avoid the feeling that the dog has taken over the house and make sure you stay in charge.

You can also try a high jet of water from a high powered water gun or hose connection. Remember to always give the clear, loud verbal command as described above, then if they continue give them the last verbal command and wet them.

Dog obedience training isn't just for the canine. Dog owners have to learn to anticipate a reactive dogs reaction to things, and by learning the basic thought process, you can ward off bad behaviour with a few modifications around your home. Prevention is often the key to your sanity. It may go without saying that you shouldn't leave your nice shoes sitting out, but what about your furniture?

To encourage your canine with associating the right command with the correct action, one must give guidance to your canine by performing actions clear following each command.

Tip: I have found that movies, or sequential narratives, help with training. For example, I've used them with scent tracking dogs who lose the scent in certain situations. Showing them how to backtrack and pick up the scent trail is sometimes all it takes to help them through a difficult training hurdle.

The subject of breed characteristics and instincts is for another article, suffice to say that; no trait is good or bad, it is more about what the human does with the trait that makes the difference between a reliable, well mannered dog and a so called 'bad' dog. Breed characteristics and instincts are a great tool and guide in selecting the right type of dog for you and your lifestyle because, they will form the foundation from which you can both grow together. If you choose the wrong breed for your lifestyle then, you will have problems. For example, if you live in an apartment and choose a working dog breed, what's going to happen? I don't need to answer that question for you, it's too obvious.

The warmer weather is here so it is time to enjoy it with your dog. It could be at a local park or the trails in your community. Dogs love the outdoors but they love it most when accompanied by their best friend!
