Behavior problems are a common thing for dogs of all breeds, no matter their size or age

While it’s completely normal for dogs to cause some form of mischief (just like it would be for a child to do so), consistently behaving badly can be a serious problem and cause for concern. Your dog showing bad habits can create a bad relationship with your pet, and showing certain behaviors like aggression or problems with commands, can simply just be dangerous.

It’s not all bad news though, and like with a lot of things, unwanted behaviors and trairs can be rectified with the use of patience and care, and the addition of training.

Why does my dog show these behavior problems?

Well, there’s not really one specific reason why your dog might be exhibiting behavior problems or bad habits, it could be down to any number of things, but more often than not some of the more common reasons that we see are;

  • A lack of training can contribute to your dog displaying or developing behavior problems, and while many dogs tend do tend to calm as they age, a lack of training can stop a dog from properly maturing out of these bad behaviors.
  • Some breeds are more likely or prone to display specific behavior problems, for example, how some dogs naturally want to chase things
  • In some cases, behavior problems that just come on out of nowhere could be related to an underlying health concern and are your dogs way of telling you that there is a problem (in which case we would advise speaking with a veterinary professional before looking into training)
