You don’t have a bad dog... I promise

Updated: Apr 9, 2023

So many dogs get labeled as 'bad' 'aggressive' 'dangerous' all because owners get a dog and have no idea what to do with it or how to ensure them and their family are safe ..

Some people get a dog just because it's cute and then end up putting them down or giving them to a shelter due to a bite or an aggressive warning sign "out of no where"

These things dont happen out of no where.

Dogs show lots of warning for a long time before a real problem happens. Humans just seem to think behaviours such as mouthing or hyper jumping, excited barking are cute as a puppy but not as an adult dog

These are things that should not be ignored as a puppy they should be shown when they can and cannot do these things!

Being in a dogs face might be fun for you but it stresses the dog out!

They really dont want that bear hug you or your child is giving them.

Especially when it comes to children, never let your child hug a dog showing stressed out signs [ lip licking, panting, moving his or her head away from you, showing the white of his or her eyes and or any kind of nipping, mouthing or showing of teeth]

Ive been hearing from many owners with non aggressive dogs saying they have a bad dog when it really is all about your behaviour not the dogs..

I encourage people to please research the right dog for you and make sure you know the signs of stress before you get one!

Every dog can be a good dog with an educated owner!

Excellent post, Jenna - and worth repeating. Owners need to do their due diligence about what it means to have a dog. The more they know, the better equipped they are to advocate for their dog - and that means less dogs ending up in shelters. Keep blogging, Jenna, and keep up the great work you're doing; you're making a positive difference. :) Sincerely,
