Problem-solving for owners is a behavioral modification for dogs. If your dog is doing something you don’t like, such as chewing, barking, digging, jumping to name a few, there is generally a reason. Let us help you learn why, teach you and your dog how to communicate effectively and change the bad behavior into a positive one.
At The Dog Wizard Virginia Beach, we understand the issues that people deal with when their dog exhibits behavioral problems but many times we forget that all dogs are designed to be task oriented, in other words, they need a “job”. We can provide that job they are missing through engaging your dog mentally and physically. By teaching your dog to process information, perform desired behaviors, and use impulse control, we are able to give them an incredibly valuable outlet to channel their energy into being productive.
When your dog understands how to make better choices and how to listen to us instead of their impulses we create a bond of trust and communication. 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 easily commanded gets more freedom because you can trust them in more situations. When both parties know what to do, the results can be amazing! All of this contributes to more freedom, happiness, mental stimulation, and opportunities to release energy – for you and your pet! You get a more relaxed dog at home and have more versatility when you do go out with your dog.
