“Stop my dog from barking” is one of the top issues clients call us about. Problem-solving for owners is simply behavioral modification for dogs. If your dog is exhibiting behaviors you don’t like, such as chewing, barking, digging, jumping to name a few, there is generally a reason why. Allow us to help you uncover why, teach your dog the path to good things and show you how to turn that bad behavior into a positive one.
Here at The Dog Wizard Orlando we understand the issues that people deal with when their dog exhibits behavioral problems. The emotional cost can take a toll when your canine is acting up. All dogs are designed to be productive and task oriented, or, in other words, they need a “job” in order to feel whole. By engaging our dogs mentally and teaching them to process information, perform desired behaviors, and use some impulse control, we are able to give them an incredibly valuable outlet to channel their energy in a constructive and positive way.
Our problem-solving approach combines teaching obedience behaviors such as sit, come and place but more importantly creating a calm state of mind and teaching your dog how to relax! When your dog understands how to make better choices and how to listen to us instead of their impulses we form a bond of trust and communication. When both parties know what to do, the results can be truly spectacular!
To improve your relationship, your dog needs structure. This doesn’t mean we need to dull their personality or force them into a military-style regimen. Quite the opposite, actually: a dog who is reliable gets more freedom because you can trust them in more situations. All of this contributes to more freedom, happiness, mental stimulation, and opportunities to release energy – for you and your pet! You will enjoy a more relaxed dog at home and have more options when you do decide to venture out together.
The whole family wins. So no matter if you are trying to “stop my dog from barking” or bigger issues, we can help. Call us today! Watch this video on a Dog Wizard graduate that had some problem solving to resolve.
