Ten Ways to Stop Bad Pet Bahaviour

By Refadoc, Posted on : Monday, 09 March 2015 - 11:30 am IST

Transform your pooch from a troublemaker to the best behaved pet on the neighborhood with these simple steps:

  • Let your pet know who is the boss around the house from the very beginning. Establish some rules and make sure that you follow them consistently.
  • If your pet demonstrates a poor behavior overall in some situations or environments, make sure that you avoid those situations completely.
  • If you keep a close watch on your pet at all times, you will be able to learn quickly about what it needs for them to be comfortable and be cared for.
  • If you are getting a new pet, make sure that you are supervising them closely during the training session and are restricting their access to the small area of the home till they are properly trained.
  • Encourage and reward good behavior when possible
  • Correct all the bad behavior in your pet by making sure that you provide you’re pet to all the alternatives. You can, for instance swap a favorite tennis shoe or a chew stick in lieu of the table leg.
  • Positive reinforcement is always good. Never try to reprimand your pet or be physical with it to follow all your commands. This may lead to fear and aggression in your pet.
  • Don’t rough house your pet or encourage the aggressive behavior as your pet is not able to distinguish between when this is going to be acceptable and when it is not.
  • Try to socialize your pet by exposing it to the people, animals as well as the environments around with the passing of time. This makes it comfortable for your pet to live in a social environment.
  • If your pet continues to show serious behavior problems, make sure that you seek the help of the vet or a behaviorist.
