Dogs are not spiteful, jealous, stubborn, or stupid – Dog Trainer Tips
Dogs do what works best for them.
If your dog ignores your recall, its because he’s always been allowed to interact with the environment at his leisure.
If your dog jumps all over guests, its because the attention is rewarding.
If your dog is destroying furniture while you are away, its because they’re bored or stressed out.
Behaviour that has been rewarded previously is more likely to happen in future.
Before calling your dog stubborn, jealous, spiteful, or stupid, think about the reason why your dog is doing something you don’t want them to do.
Then teach them a behaviour that you DO want them to do.
