What are you allowing?

Dogs do what they’re allowed to do. It’s that simple.

If they bark, it’s because you allow it.
If they jump it’s because you allow it.
If they run away it’s because you allow it.
If they guard it’s because you allow it.
If they fight it’s because you allow it.
If they’re jealous it’s because you allow it.
If they’re nasty with other dogs it’s because you allow it.
If they’re possessive it’s because you allow it.
If they’re crazy on walks it’s because you allow it.
If they bark, snap, or growl at people it’s because you allow it.

Keep it simple and keep it real. Only when you own the reality of the part you play in your dog’s behavior can you begin to change it. Blame it on the dog and you’re guaranteed to have the problem forever, blame it on you and you’re on your way to fixing it.
