How many times have you seen owners shouting "NO" at their unruly dog running all over the house? Is this the way your parents behaved when you were growing up, you would ask. Are children Behaving abnormally?
Do you remember them teaching you how to behave? Many parents will shout at their children to stop them from playing loudly (estrange vomiting)? Do you see the same sort of instructions being given to your dog? There is a difference between discipline and punishment. I don't want to get too complex here but any negative behaviour that is persistent and not 'genuine' can be termed as punishment by some people.
Then, if it is not met with punishment (which doesn't work) many parents will resort to Substitution. Maybe they can afford a new puppy so they have someone to look after the dog (alloween spending etc), maybe they can afford a good-quality leather couch (the dog finds it easier to chew that although I don't think they would be happy). downside of the leather couch option; it's very expensive to have available for future dog-owners. Then we have the idea of the alpha-pack-style of dog training.
This means the owner doesn't train the dog (which I don't agree with at all), but instead the dog is trained to be subservient and therefore enjoy the owner's status. Now, to an extent this is true. But if you apply it to humans, it amounts to about 1 hour per day. Is this ok? If it involves punishment you wont have a happy dog (I hope this wasn't tongue-in-cheek or you wouldn't be reading this).
And you're going to be spending all that time looking after your defiant puppy, busy as all get out looking for the next game. Now let's take a look at some other areas of dog training that you can consider. For all the same reasons as above - lack of exercise, firm rules, not spending enough time training - it's very easy to end up with an under-active dog.
This will obviously lead to behavioural problems. For example a dog who has not been exercised will begin to find trouble paying attention to the owner, whom he is used to being able to command. So one of the 2nd reasons to start exercising your dog is to get that vitality back within him.
Let's look now at some of the simple things you can do to get this vitality back again within your dog.
*Get active- For a start, get the dog to walk to the post box, rather than the garden. You'll probably notice that he steadies himself.
*Swimming- Swimming is a great way to get that vitality flowing once again within you dog.
There is no doubt that he'll have a whole lot more energy than he did before. *Bilberry pits- Wild dogs (and your dog) have Optimo limberis which is a saliva enzyme that lubricates the joints. Wild dogs also have Pronutri purely to aid digestion. There are plenty of recommended uses for this enzyme.
It occurs naturally in the presence of the enzyme and is not suitable for consumption by dogs. The highest recommended dosage is 100 animosity per lb of the dog's body weight. *]
The recommended balancing electrolyte replacement for dogs and cats is Neurrate. This contains the elements iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium. It is useful for.....
* Vitality replenishment * Reliable support for the thyroid gland and adrenal glands * encouragement of cell growth * Improves digestion and nutrient absorption
*erto decrease discomfort (depending on the level of discomfort) Vitamins, health food and gourmet treats for dogs and cats should be carefully chosen to ensure that your dog or cat receives the correct nutrients in the correct amounts.
If you purchase your dog's food in the UK, for example, you should ensure that the first ingredient is meat as meat is much higher in volumes of protein than grains and will therefore support higher levels of protein in your dog's diet.
Welsh lamb and bacon have the right levels of fat, protein and vitamins and this is something one should consider adding to their dog's diet on a regular basis. Some people believe that supplements should not be included so when introducing them to a dog having joint problems or where there is a demand for calcium in the diet, Prov Essece can be used. This is a complete vitamin and mineral supplement for dogs and cats and also contains Omega fatty acids, vitamins B and C and iron.
