Dogs are more evolved and emotional than we give them credit. In addition, every dog is a unique individual with natural personality traits, 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 in a human society.
