How to wean a dog to write for joy or fear?

Often, the owners of the dog, finding a puddle in the house, come to resentment and scold the dog. However, such a reaction will in no way stop repeated incidents, but, rather, on the contrary, will irreparably harm the psyche of the dog.

First you need to understand why the dog is written for fear, and sometimes for joy with a meeting with the owner.

The dog is written for joy

First of all, this is not about joy. Meeting the owner at the door and happily wagging his tail, the dog (and more often the puppy) makes a puddle to show you that he recognizes the owner as the main one and agrees with his subordinate position. So dogs establish a hierarchy of relationships.

However, such puddles in the apartment are not very pleasant and it is better to wean the dog from such behavior.

Shouts and punishment will not help here, because the dog will not understand at all what it is doing wrong, and the puppy will only “slow down” in development, but the scenario with a puddle will repeat again.

  • Best of all, coming into the house after separation do not be in a hurry to stroke the puppy. Pretend not to notice his joy. He will not be offended, but will calm down much faster, his excitement will pass and then the dog can be safely stroked (better, not bending down, but crouching) without fear of the appearance of a puddle.
  • Doing so every time, you fix the correct behavior of the dog and it will not constantly strive to prove its obedience to you with the help of puddles, and calmly take its place in the family hierarchy.

The dog is written for fear

Also, a puppy, and sometimes quite an adult dog, can be written for fear. Most often she is frightened by the harsh voice of the owner, a sudden visitor in the house or the appearance of another dog.

In such a situation it is very important never to punish an animal for a puddle. It is already scared and will not understand at all, for what it receives punishment. And the fear and reaction to it will only be fixed. As a result, the puppy will grow up intimidated and lose all protective qualities.

Puppy, described after the punishment of the owner, for example, for gnawed furniture, shows his humility. It also means that the owner has gone too far in punishment if the dog has to prove that he remembers his subordinate place in the pack.

  • To avoid this behavior, do not intimidate the dog. Even if she was disobedient, she only needs disapproval or disregard, not screaming and slapping.
  • Overexcited dog, which ceased to obey, you first need to calm down. It should be seated, but not by a team (it may not “hear”), but with your hands and keep it until the dog calms down.
  • At the same time, the voice of the owner should be calm, but persistent and demanding, and the movements should be strong, but not sharp. The owner should not be nervous because of not obedience to the dog, but always be for her an example of calm confidence.
  • When overexcited, the dog can write about it from punishment or just too strict command, cry.

Because the scheme of education of the dog should be as follows: calm overexcited dog, but only after this command obedience.
