Fear OF NOISES
Dogs can be afraid of thunder & lightening or fireworks, as well as other noises, that we consider normal. When afraid dogs will hide behind a couch, in the closet, the bathroom or under a bed. It’s a natural response when they try to retreat to a different room.
When a dog jumps up at someone entering the home it is fulfilling it’s duty as leader to establish leadership and assess where the family/pack member has been and decide where they fit in the hierarchy of the family/pack.
Destructive behavior is a dog's outward display of trying to cope with stress. It is a dog's natural response to chew on something when dealing with anxiety.
fear or anxious with people or dogs
Dogs can’t talk, they can’t use words and vocalize their fears, as we humans do, so they communicate in their language and culture. Dogs will retreat, growl, lunge or nip when afraid or anxious, as they are trying to protect themselves and their family.
When puppies mouth they are simply trying to interact in the way that they have with their litter mates and don’t realize that this is not acceptable behavior with humans. Some adult dogs mouth to assert their leadership and direct the person. As they don't have hands, they use their mouth.
When dogs don't respond to recall dogs don't have selective hearing, they are just making the decision, as pack leader, if they want to respond.
Dogs they can’t possibly understand that the neighbor coming home, the mail man, or a visitor ringing the doorbell isn’t a possible threat. When dogs bark they are simply guarding their home and trying to keep their pack safe.
Dogs are trying to cope, just as humans do, but they show their stress outwardly in many different ways. Dogs can lick, drink water, chase their tail or focus on shadows obsessively when they are stressed.
pulling on the leash
Dogs that pull on the leash are doing so because they believe that they have to be in front of 'the pack' in order to assess and deal with the potential threats on the walk.
CANINE COMMUNICATION IS THE ANSWER
The training method used to help resolve dog behavioral issues was discovered after extensive study of wolves, wild dogs and coyotes as to how canines communicate. After this discovery the training was developed to formulate a way of working with dogs using their own language and culture.
This training technique utilizes dog psychology and pack dynamics, a language that all dogs understand due to their genetic makeup inherited from the grey wolf. The method is based on effective canine communication and is a unique, kind method in which your dog will elect you their leader of their own free-will. There will be no need to use choke chains, shock collars, haltis head collars and other gadgets to control or force your dog as they will learn willing cooperation and self control.
