Problem-solving for owners is a behavioral modification for dogs. If your dog is doing something you don’t like, such as chewing, barking, digging, jumping to name a few, there is generally a reason. So our job is to uncover why, and show you how to turn that bad behavior into a positive one. Click here to read some common behaviors and why your dog may be doing it. However, some dogs have practiced a bad behavior for so long the underlying “why” is no longer linked, which means it has become an ingrained habit (something your dog does without conscious thought). For these dogs, the “why” is really no longer important, it is more about creating a new habit alltogether.
