Here are some dogs’ grooming tips on how to keep track and relieve your dog’s unusual behavior:

Recognize the Reason for the Destructive Behavior:

There may be a difference in the natural and destructive behavior. Dogs have a natural instinct of digging holes or chewing up clothes and shoes.This is generally not of much concern. But if the dog is in a habit of clawing the cushions or couch, barking at slight provocation or biting a stranger, this must be taken into account and tried to be resolved at the earliest.

  1. Your dog may be over enthusiastic or dynamic at times. It may run into circles, try to catch its tail, try to catch birds or small animals or be in a confused state. This may be possible because less of attention is paid towards it or less exercise is given to it.Correct your daily schedule according to the conditions and if still not getting it, consult a vet.
  2. Look if your dog gets angry on getting separated from you. It may not know how to be independent. In such a case, teach it the skills on how to behave when alone.
  3. Your dog may get frightened of the loud noises such as thunder and fire-crackers. For this, assign it a place to hide which is noise insulated.
  4. Your dog may simply get bored of its daily schedule or food. Try something different in the games that you playwith it or with the food that it eats.

Lighten the Extra Energy that it Possesses:

  1. Take your dog for a walk every day. You could use a leash if the do is too dynamic but never use a stick. Take it to the areas that are challenging to walk or let it jump over the fences and bushes to offer its muscles a thorough exercise. You could also take it to a different park each day to change the environment.
  2. Play with the dog as much as you can. You could make it learn the catch-ball technique or buy toys such as Frisbee to play with it.  These games would also offer it the exercises it is intended to get.
  3. Offer it some digging space if it is too keen at digging the ground.

Carefully Select the Toys

  1. A dog may feel lonely when the master it loves the most is not in the house. In such a case give it the right toys it could play without getting bored. These toys should also be made up of materials that do not harm it. Try changing the toys at frequent intervals so that it does not get used to the same old toys.
  2. You could offer your dog the chewing sticks that are made up of organic material and these will offer it teeth and gum exercise.

Offer it a Serene Scenario

  1. Dogs may not like the hustle and bustle of the house and would search for a peaceful environment. Offer it some space where it could move and rest for the amount of time it intends. You could also let it watch the television at low volumes or hear the radio when it is alone.
  2. If you have a number of pets, make sure to give them an ample amount of space for their rest and sleep. Overcrowded areas may lead to violent behaviors.
  3. Make sure it is fenced well, lest it escapes from the house, chasing the cars on the road and challenging other dogs for a fight.

With the above mentioned tips on dog grooming you could turn an uncontrollable pet to a well behaved one. It may take some time in this but remember! It is an animal and would require some patience and love from you.
