Dogs are more evolved and emotional than we give them credit. In addition, every dog is unique with unique learning styles and motivations that may change as they age. Different development stages throughout a dog’s life may require establishing new foundations, revisiting basic manners or understanding why a dog is displaying such behaviors as reactiveness, shyness, appetite changes, activity level variance, fear or aggressive tendencies. Bottom line – there is an emotion and a reason for a behavior. First, we must identify the root cause and then create a plan to help your dog find the understanding needed to live a happy, balanced and “WHole” life.
