Dog Insecurity

Sunday, April 22, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

Does your dog hide bones, shoes or other items? If you see your dog hiding food, it could mean that he is insecure. He may feel a need to provide for the future. Never rebuke a dog when your catch him hiding an item. This will only make him more insecure. Hiding often occurs when a dog is introduced to a new home and should stop when he gets settled in.  Never chase your dog if your catch him hiding something.  Running away from people is life-threatening for a dog. Pattern your dog to always come toward you, unless you are playing with him outside where he is retrieving something.

You could make this into a game instead of showing that you’re upset. Take an item and let your dog chase you for it. This way he will feel that he did not do anything wrong by hiding. Keep items that don’t want hidden out of your dog’s reach.

Just tolerate his hiding, it’s just part of being a dog!
