#6. For all of my behavior clients out there, you’ve all heard me say this one a lot! Behavior issues are like gaining weight. Whether your issue is destruction, jumping, barking, fear, or aggression, it’s time to take an honest look at how much behavioral “weight gain” he’s put on.
How severe are your dog’s behavior issues? If he’s put on 30 or 40 lbs of behavioral baggage over several years, it is not going to go away overnight. Crash diets are too good to be true. Instead hard work, habit change, and a time commitment are all needed for long-term behavior change success.
Stick with it though, and your hard work will pay off I promise! It is worth it and I am cheering for you!
