What You Dog Wants To Say To You
If your dog could talk, here are 4 things he or she would tell you:
#1: “You belong to me.” One of the reasons your dog does strange things, like rub against you, is to mark you with their smell. That tells other animals that you’re taken.
The next thing your dog wants you to know: “When you leave, I'm afraid you won't come back.” That’s why many pets attack the door frame when their owners leave.
The 3rd thing your dog would tell you if they could: “I need more exercise!” Boredom and excess energy are the causes of many pet behavior problems. So, if your dog’s chewing furniture or barking excessively, try taking them outside for an hour a day.
And the final thing your dog wants you to know: “Be clear when I’m doing something wrong.” A lot of owners confuse their pets. One day they’re allowed on the couch, one day they’re not. Instead, when your pet misbehaves, just say the word “No” in a firm tone. Just make sure you reprimand them when the mistake is happening, or they won’t know why they’re being punished.
