Problems with Your Dog? Are you having a difficult time with your dog at home? If you are facing anything from irrational behavior to acting out and tearing up furniture or valuables, then you might have a problem with your dog’s pack mentality.
What is the Pack Mentality? Dogs, like people, are social creatures. They crave a pack mentality. When they are living with you, they do what you need them to do, and in return, they receive food and nourishment. When dogs don’t have that stable structure installed in the house, they are more prone to act out and be restless.
Why do dogs become restless and anxious? One of the problems that many dogs have is generational domestication. For example, many people might enjoy having terriers as pets because they’re fun and playful, but you could have terriers that a few generations ago were hunting rats in farmlands full-time.
When you have active pets that are acting against the rules they were bred for, they will typically get anxiety and restlessness. This has to do with them being incapable of performing a task, or it could be as simple as boredom in a home that doesn’t have any activities. Either way, behavior modification services can cut these problems down.
