Your dog can be good

It is said that there is no such thing as a ‘bad’ dog simply just ‘bad’ owners. The owner asks their dog to complete a command or follow an order, but the dog misinterprets their request due to lack of communication between owner and dog.

Your dog can behave itself in an orderly manner; even the most excitable dogs can be calmed, the most unruly can be trained, the over-friendly can be quietened and the anti-social taught/persuaded to be slightly more sociable.

However, this said, there are dogs that come along that nothing can be done for, perhaps they have been so ill-treated in the past that it has really effected them and made them distrust people completely.

It is so rewarding to be able to take your dog out in public and be aware that he/she will behave impeccably. What you always have to remember is that not everyone out there is like you, an avid dog lover; some people do not actually like dogs.

Perhaps they have encountered a nasty dog at some stage and this has put them off all dogs; you must not assume that all people like dogs and allow yours to jump up at everyone.

To be completely honest you can usually tell within a few moments if someone is a dog lover or not, if they are they will normally approach your dog to say ‘hello’. If they are not, generally they will move aside for you to pass or just ignore your dog completely.

If you are in a crowded place, pop your dog on the lead, this avoids anything untoward occurring. At the end of the day, you are responsible for your dog’s actions. If your dog is off the lead and running free then you should feel 100% confident that he/she will return to you in a heartbeat if requested, and that you have total control.

If you wish to change your new dog’s name or even name him from scratch as he/she has never had one before, then you need to start from the minute your dog moves in with you. Better still; if possible, ask the people who are around your dog prior to him/her coming to live with you to begin using the new name.

Both my dogs have come to me from very different backgrounds but both were being called by their new names before they started their life with me. Murphy was a puppy and the breeder used his new name and little K.c. was a rescue and all the staff were calling her by her new name!
