The Importance of Dog Behavior
The number one reason dogs are surrendered to shelters is due to behavior problems. The majority of these problems are correctable. Dogs can be kept out of shelters if the people who love them increase their understanding of dog behavior and training.
Studies show that dogs that are unaltered, are acquired at one-to-three years of age or are less than six months of age, have never been to obedience class, spend much of the day in crates or in the backyard are at high risk of surrender to shelters.
These high risk dogs often have one general thing in common: they go beyond a lack of manners to destructive behaviors ranging from not being housebroken and chewing the furniture to excavating the yard, escaping, or acting aggressively towards family, friends, or other animals.
When these behaviors are addressed and corrected a dog and his family have a much better chance at living together happily ever after.
