Parents, teach your children that dogs are not toys. Too many parents allow and sometimes even encourage their children to ride their dog like a horse. Their fragile backs aren’t designed to carry the weight of a child. You could be exposing both your dog and child to serious harm.
Tips & Tricks
Dog behavior is very subtle. What looks like innocent play can be potentially dangerous. Consult with a professional if you suspect your dog’s behavior might lead to aggression. Because when it’s too late, it’s too late.
Dog’s natural instinct when they get hurt can mean to snap at their owners. Bite inhibition can teach your dog to lessen the severity of the bite.
When dogs are afraid of loud noises it’s called “noise phobia.” And there isn’t much you can do, but it’s not all hopeless.
Discipline is not abuse. It is a tool that has been abused, but it is essential to the development of both children and pets.
