Dog Behaviors

15 Jun

I came across this article and thought I should share it with all you dog lovers out there. Dog behavior is taught, not because of their breed. Whenever I read stories like this, I automatically think of Pitbulls and the terrible reputation they have due to poor conditions and treatment when being raised. Like I said before, it’s not the breed, it most times comes back on the owner. There are many Pitbull owners out there that have perfectly normal relationships with their Pitbulls and do not have behavioral issues at all, which proves it is not the breed.

Ever since I was little, I have been raised with a dog and they have all had very similar personalities. And yes, they have all been labs, but they have all been lab “mixes” which means they have all had a little something different in each of them. Yet, we’ve never had a dog that wasn’t trustworthy, or we had to worry about it nipping at people. People have come to our door when our dogs are standing barking, but they’ve never had to worry about anything but getting licked to death. Our dogs bark to notify us when someone is here, not because they’re mad and are going to attack, because we didn’t raise them to be that way. A dog is a true reflection of their owners and I am a true believer of that statement. This article is great and she really understands how dogs can be and will be, based on how they are raised.
