This means the behaviour you are experiencing now is one of the few bad behaviours and that behaviour is the one that is really driving you crazy. Because you didn’t address all other behaviours therefore one led to another and created the current situation. It is never because of one thing that a dog develops certain behaviour. It is due to combination of misunderstood, ignored, seamed cute or funny behaviours.
It also means that your dog’s behaviour will get even worse if you don’t do anything about it. This is a warning for things to come. I suggest you to contact me to help you.
To prevent situations like this, you need to be aware of your dog’s little mistakes that it makes. These little mistakes can be as simple as a light growl or barking at certain people. These are signals that indicate you are not keeping up on what you need to do with your dog therefore your dog is confused and is not sure what it is supposed to do. One of the ways you can solve this problem is prevention. You need to start correcting your dog (See my upcoming article; Dog owners don’t say “NO” to their dogs). The other thing you need to do is provide your dog’s needs so it will be satisfied. (Attend my basic obedience course to learn your dog’s needs).
Dogs depend on us to be guided and be directed to a simpler life but most of the time you ignore the signs that they send and create an unbalanced situation and therefore an unbalance dog. You need to pay more attention to your dog and every little; simple, seam cute and funny misbehavior needs to be corrected.
