Have you ever met someone who was so cocky, you got the sense they felt they had something to prove, which in turn left you wondering if perhaps they actually had a confidence deficiency? Well, it turns out this is the case with many a brash Bingo.
The cause of most seemingly over-confident dog behavior actually stems from an underlying insecurity for which the canid is over-compensating.
When we fail to supply our pets with sufficient structure, consistency, and leadership, they fail to develop a sense of security in the world. The best things we can do for our dogs is maintain control of all their resources, give them jobs with which to earn their valued treasures, help them learn self-restraint, and provide support for them in new or otherwise upsetting situations, so that they learn we have everything under our purview, the world operates in a predictable and positive manner, and they have nothing to fear.
Don't be fooled by zealous Zoe! Have patience, and infect her with tranquility And remember to play with your pooch - nothing bonds like fun!!
