5 Quick Fixes for Dog Misbehavior

For a variety of dog misbehavior, there are proven solutions to combating them. Don’t call in the Dog Whisperer or sign up for an expensive dog training class before trying out some of our solutions to common dog behavior problems. Read on below!

  1. Dog Anxiety During Storms
  2. During thunderstorms and big rainstorms, it’s common for some canines to become anxious, shivering, panting or even barking. You can ease your pooch’s preoccupations with a dog Thundershirt. These anxiety-relieving shirts apply a constant amount of pressure to your dog, which is shown to create a calming effect on dogs. Many users rave about the dramatic difference the Thundershirt makes in their dogs’ anxiety during storms, fear during travel or new situations or even their over-excitement.

  3. Dog Eating Poop
  4. For whatever reason, it’s not that unusual to see a dog trying to eat its own poop. Feed your dog a coprophagia deterrent chew – these chews make stools taste bad, thus preventing the desire and interest of the feces. If your dog seems abnormally interested in consuming other animals’ stools, it may be time to take him/her to a vet – some instances of coprophagia are because of medical issues.

  5. Dog Barking
  6. If your dog’s a yapper and the incessant barks are becoming a nuisance to you, your neighbors, or both – think about a bark deterring behavioral aid. Our SpraySense anti-bark collars are a long-lasting and safe way to deter barking. The anti-bark collars emit an aroma of citronella, an unpleasant smell to dogs (but virtually undetectable to humans) that interrupts their barking.

  7. Dog Timid/Fearful of New Situations
  8. Many canines get shy in new situations, or show fear when exposed to new environments; you can’t always protect your dog from new encounters, but you can help them feel more at ease. Our anxiety relief aids vary from calming chews and yummy lickable gels to Thundershirts and more. Help make the stress more manageable by getting some of these stress-relieving solutions online at Pet Health Market.

  9. Dog Begging
  10. If Fido’s picked up the bad habit of begging for treats at the dinner table, or barking every time the doorbell rings (or many more bothersome habits), the MannersMinder Remote Training System is the perfect solution! This dog reward trainer releases treats from a distance, positively reinforcing good behavior. By removing your association with the treats, you encourage better behavior ‘just because’ - and your pups won’t be constantly begging you for a nibble. The system comes with a training guide and you can use it for a variety of other dog behavior and dog training issues – what a great solution!

We hope these 5 quick fixes will help you with your dog! For many more pet solutions, pet medications and more, visit the affordable Pet Health Market.
