Most Frequent Mistakes of Dog Owners Masters Breeders and Vets

Many people, not knowing the dog's behavior, act in an inappropriate way , and make the dog acquire bad habits. Most of the trophies are for dogs that never got to socialize correctly, either with people or with other dogs. In some cases the breeder didn't pay much attention during the imprinting face.

Dog Breeders' mistakes

Keep pups away from people: This mistake is one of the most serious ones. Some breeders tend to think the pups will recognize the first person they see as "the master". This is most unhelpful. If the dog lives through the imprinting stage without any contact with people, then it will probably panic once it goes out into the real world. If corrected on time, then the dog will recover almost completely, almost.

Separate the litter from the mother too soon: For both the mental health of the mother and the puppies, it is ideal to be together for at least 7-8 weeks, never forget this is the period in which hierarchies are established.

Separate the puppies too soon: This can also be negative, for through games, the dog learns behavior structures and defines hierarchies.

Forbid contact with other dogs: Similar to the last case, this can cause trauma, but in this case it would be worse. The dog will be fearsome and utterly shy.

Keep grown-up dogs in small cages for too long: It is not difficult to imagine effects of this action: both bone and muscular structure, and psychological health would be affected. There might even be some neurotic behaviors, such as spinning, biting the legs, the dogs can also hurt themselves out of boredom.

Mistakes vets make

Advise late education. The dog, the same as people, don't have a specific education age. Nevertheless, constant education would be ideal. This is logical, because otherwise the dog would never understand why it was able to do anything as a pup and then suddenly there are rules. In this case it would be extremely difficult for the dog to learn the rules when it's already grown. Some vets still advise people to educate the dog when it is a year old, this means that in the case of the problematic dogs, we would be letting them develop their difficult behaviors for long. There isn't an age for stopping the training process, either. This has to be analyzed and we have to see if there are habits that ought to be corrected. A dog can learn all its life.

Advise owners against taking their dogs out without all vaccinations: You can obviously warrantee your pet will be healthy with this piece of advice. However, in some cases this means a problem for the adult life, as from the third month of life, pups need to know their context and other dogs. A solution to this problem is to take the pup out in your arms, so it can start recognizing places, aromas, people, etc., but is far from the polluted ground.

Think of castration as a solution of aggressiveness: Not all of the cases of aggressiveness are caused by hormones. And castration does not warrantee a solution. Before deciding, we must analyze the situation of the dog, and other possible causes. In some cases, just following the directions of a professional gets excellent results, as long as the dog and the owner cooperate. Every dog is different.
