Avoid These 7 Mistakes for Your Dog's Wellbeing

Dogs may show unwanted behaviors because they haven't been taught otherwise. Instead of punishing, focus on positive reinforcement training.

Don't Punish Stubbornness

Dogs need toys to meet their chewing needs. If they destroy toys, it doesn't mean you should stop providing them. Find durable alternatives instead.

Keep the Toys Coming

Hitting breaks trust and makes dogs fearful. Fearful dogs can bite if threatened. Always use gentle, positive methods for correction.

Never Hit Your Dog

Crates Aren't Just Convenience
