When your dog sees or approaches another dog, you want him to behave in a calm, friendly, confident manner. It is natural for him to be interested in the other dog, but not to rush into the other dog’s space, or vocalize excessively, which another dog may perceive as threatening, and can result in aggression.
Why does my dog go crazy when he sees other people?
Rapidly, dogs can learn to demand a visit with the other dogs they see while out on walks. This can also happen with people if a dog is allowed to pull toward a person and receive attention. Dogs learn that if they make enough of a fuss to visit with other dogs or people, they might be rewarded with a meet and greet.
Why does my dog get hyper when he sees me?
Dogs have evolved and changed based on their partnership with people, which means they are happy specifically to please us. This means that your dog being elated to see you is a completely normal habit for them to engage in.
How do you tell if your dog is protective over you?
The most common way to test this is by placing the dog in an environment with different people or animals. If the dog starts stressing out or growling to everyone who comes close to the owners, it may be an over-protective dog.
How do I train my dog to behave around guests?
Start by walking your dog to the door. Tell your dog to sit, and then to stay. When he does so, reward him with either a treat, a pet or a toy. You are going to slowly teach your dog that a “sit-stay” at the door is exactly what you’re looking for.
