Small dogs that rule the house

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Do you own a little dog who is the boss of your house? Does she jump up on you when you come home from work, snap at your sleeves, try to bite you when you try to trim her nails, growl at strangers? If so, you’ve got a pet that thinks that she’s in charge. This is a dog with “small” dog syndrome. Your cute little dog thinks that she’s the boss. Think of her as a big Doberman and you’ll see the mistakes that you’re making. Dog owners often let small dogs get away with behavior that they would never tolerate from big dogs.  They let them sleep in their beds, beg for  treats, jump into their laps and more. To  re-claim your leadership, you must refuse to tolerate her bad behavior. Insist on good manners with calm but determined energy and you’ll eventually see that small dog syndrome disappear.

Remember, your pets count!
