In this week’s AbsoluteDogs TV Episode, we discuss:
Is your dog WORRIED about noise, movement or the world in general?
Are they REACTIVE to strangers or other dogs on walks (or out your front window)?
Does your dog BARK at squirrels, LUNGE at cyclists or PULL on lead on walks?
Do you have a dog who SHUTS DOWN and tries to HIDE around novel or loud noises?
If you’ve said “YES!” to any of the above – and even you don’t see your dog’s current struggles listed – there’s a high chance you have what we affectionately like to call a Naughty But Nice dog (NBN).
Naughty But Nice dogs tend to struggle with many things in life – things like confidence and optimism (they’re a bit pessimistic), the ability to disengage (they can’t move away from what worries them), independence (think SEPARATION struggles!) and even calmness (they can’t settle at home or seem to have TOO much energy)!
So WHERE do you START with your Naughty But Nice dog?
In today’s video, we’re showing you one SIMPLE and ADAPTABLE game that you can PLAY to begin growing your dog’s CONFIDENCE no matter their age, breed, or size!
Confident dogs approach everything with a happy-go-lucky life attitude AND they don’t see the need to react inappropriately to new and novel situations! For a Naughty But Nice dog, growing the concept of confidence is one of the best places to start when working on any struggle, followed closely by CALMNESS!
CALMNESS really is KING for any dog, but especially for our loveable Naughty But Nice dogs. Calmness sets them up to make great CHOICES and helps them live a longer, happier, healthier life. You can NEVER have TOO MUCH calmness.
