Is Your Puppy a Behavior Challenge?

Your new little puppy can do no wrong in your eyes but, other dogs or people scare them to death, or they try to attack everyone and everything that is not familiar to them. Since your puppy has no experience in life yet, that means they need to defend themselves from it all. In some cases, puppies can even be fearful and/or aggressive toward their people.

Since your puppy has very limited life experience, what causes anxiety in puppies or aggressive puppies? Take a look at a difficult puppy training case. I think I have an aggressive puppy

Research suggests that distrusting a puppy’s development is almost a guarantee of future behavioral problems in canines. Fearful puppies seem to be born with lower thresholds for fear, and fearful puppies tend to develop canine anxiety. Puppy aggression and anxiety are often linked and occurs simultaneously.

Experience is all We Have Got

Genetics, developmental stages and illness are all causes of puppy aggression, fear and anxiety. Experience either improves the condition or makes is worse. Since the cause has already happened, we can do little to change that so, all we have is future experience.

The Dark Side of Socialization: Fear Periods and Single Event Learning in dogs

Puppy Socialization

Dog social Skills

K9’s have their own language, social customs and social norms. While helping your dog learn to play well with other seems like the place to start, just like people, we might need to learn a few things and work on ourselves before we join the party. The idea that all dog just love other dogs and want to be with them is a bit of a myth. Many of them would prefer to spend time with you. Simply, dogs are a lot like people some are social butterflies seeking out new people and dogs, some dogs prefer just being with their person.

What About Those Dreaded Teenage Dog Years?

Ask any parent what stage of development they dread. Those moody, emotionally driven teenagers. We have come across an interesting theory that adolescent puppies may be a lot like that teenage child you have in your home.

The most challenging time of raising a puppy is the adolescent period. Dogs become “teenagers” and seem to forget everything they have ever been taught. This period is individual to each dog, but it may begin when he’s about eight months old and continue until he’s two years old.
