A common misconception is that dog behavior is motivated by needs or interests similar to our own. Many owners tend to treat their dogs like a child, not understanding that a dog needs to be understood in a more canine way, which is where dog psychology and a understanding of how dogs communicate with each other comes in.

Often, when dogs are frustrated or lacking leadership they will act out through obsessive or aggressive behavior. Learning how to be a calm, assertive pack leader along with knowing the needs of your dog will help bring balance and happiness into their lives as well as your own.

It is recommended that your pet have a veterinary exam prior to any behavior consultation. Your veterinarian can determine whether a medical condition is contributing to the behavior problem.
