Sometimes people feel overwhelmed with the time and patience necessary to correct a pet's problem behavior. Begin working with your pet the very first day it arrives at your home.
Your pet is looking to you for leadership. It is important for you to establish yourself as the leader and show your pet the right way to behave.
Several local dog trainers offer obedience classes and will help you and your pet learn to overcome behavior issues.
Above all be patient - your pet is anxious to please you.
