X was in a weak state when he was introduced to you. Typically, when this occurs, the owner comforts the dog by giving him affection, which can foster antisocial behavior. Then, when the dog is well, the owner doesn’t practice leadership on a regular basis – or only tries to practice it when the dog becomes aggressive.

X will be able to show your guests how sweet he is when he feels respected. It’s important you tell your friends when they come into your home: “No touch. No talk. No eye contact.” By appearing to ignore the dog, they’re actually allowing him to come and smell them, which is basically acknowledging that they care that he is a dog and does things in “dog ways.”

You have to do your part, too! You must learn to master the walk. Seek professional help to show you how to walk the dog properly in different situations. I would recommend giving him plenty of exercise, so, when people come into your house, he is tired. Another suggestion is taking the dog to a swimming pool with supervision. This can boost his self-esteem and help him to become a balanced dog.

Eli pähkinänkuoressa:

  • koiraan kohdistettu hellyys ja rakkaus edesauttaa antisosiaalista käytöstä
  • kun vieraat eivät huomioi koiraa, he tunnustavat koiran ja sen, että koira on koiramainen ja tekee koiramaisia asioita
  • ratkaisu vieraiden vastaottamiseen on se, että väsytät koiraa etukäteen liikunnalla
  • vieraita arastelevaa koiraa voi viedä koirien uimahalliin, se voi kehittää koiran itsetuntoa ja auttaa koiraa tulemaan tasapainoiseksi

Uskotko näiden vinkkien toimivan?
