Sometimes the Bark is worse than the Bite

Does your dog growl and bark at other dogs when you take it out for a walk? Want to save yourself from the embarrassment and calm your dog? Here are a few tips and techniques through which you can control your dog’s behavior around other dogs:

Right Dog Training Collar

You might not be aware of this, but choosing the right training collar for your dog is very important. There are various collars, and not every collar is right for your dog. You have to control your dog so selecting the best collar is of utmost importance. You can choose either a Gentle Leader or a Prong Collar. Just select the one that helps you control your dog and lets you enjoy a safe walk!

Obedience Classes

Obedience classes for dogs can be extremely helpful. They teach them how to behave around other dogs, and increase their attention span amidst distractions. Your dog will learn to listen to you, which will certainly help in keeping them calm. Along with obedience classes, train your dog to listen and respond to your commands like sit, down, heel, stay, come, etc. Once your dog starts responding to your commands, you will be able to control him better and it will help your dog to remain calm in the presence of other dogs.

Exercise

Making a rash dog exercise can be very difficult! You have to be creative with the ways through which you can tire out your dog. You can either play with him or let him run in an open area before you take him out for a walk. Alternatively, you can take him out for a walk with a dog backpack. The less pent-up energy your dog will have, the easier it will be for you to control him.

Keep your Dog by your Side

When going out for a walk with your dog, make sure to keep him by your side. You would certainly not want your dog to go crazy as soon as he sees another dog. Save yourself the embarrassment and make him walk beside you and not several feet ahead.
