Tips & Advice: Behavior Problems

There’s no way around it: toilet training is vital for pet owners and dogs.

As summer winds down and school begins, everyone in the household – whether two- or four-legged – begins to adjust to new routines.

No matter how much we love our pets, the reality is they get older just like us. For many pup parents, it can be emotionally difficult to cope with the reality that the dog that brings so much joy to our lives isn't the same youthful puppy we brought home all those years ago. The fact is that we are likely to outlive our pets.
Americans love our dogs – and with nearly 90 million pups living in the U.S., there’s plenty of canine love to go around. But no matter how well integrated they are into our families, dogs still bite: whether they feel protective, threatened, scared, or are simply excited and playful, it is a natural reaction to certain situations.

More family time at home can be a joy for humans and pups alike: it means more pets, more playtime, and more attention and activities throughout the day with our four-legged friends.

A little preparation, however, can avoid or mitigate potential issues and keep the good vibes going when your schedule shifts.
