Behaviour in Dogs

  • Set rules immediately and stick to them. 
  • Avoid situations that promote inappropriate behaviour.
  • Observe your pet and provide what it needs to be cared for and attended to.
  • Supervise your new pet diligently through undivided individual attention and training. Restrict your pet’s access to a limited area of the house until training is complete.
  • Encourage good behaviour with lavish praise and attention.
  • Correct bad behaviours by providing positive alternatives. (e.g. a toy for a slipper, a scratching post for a sofa). 
  • Never physically punish or force compliance to commands. This may lead to fear biting or aggression.
  • Don’t play roughly or encourage aggression or play biting.
  • Expose pets to people, animals and environments where you want them to live.
  • Ask to see any of our vets or nurses if serious or unresolved behavioural problems exist.
