Lately I've been seeing more and more dogs that are chewing on their leashes. So, why would a dog chew on its leash? Presumably, the leash is associated with walks, which are usually pleasant and much desired by the majority of dogs. It can be an old habit that never died, like thumb-sucking or nail-biting in some humans. How to stop it? Apply the rule of NO LEASH IN MOUTH on every walk. Change your dog's focus away from his leash with a treat or other diversion can sometimes work if your dog responds to food or a special toy. Be persistent and consistent. If you let it go "just this once" your dog will remember and continue to eat the leash!

Can your dogs eat next to each other, or do you have to separate them at mealtime? Sibling rivalry - two or more dogs in the same household that are aggressive to one another - usually occurs over important resources, like bones, toys, and of course, food! Managing mealtimes is important, but so is training them to co-exist peacefully. www.athomedogtrainer.com

Ever see a dog sitting on the driver's lap while the car is in motion? If you wouldn't drive with a child on your lap, why would you drive with your dog there? Get a car harness for your dog to keep him safe and secure. If he objects, contact me at www.athomedogtrainer.com for help acclimating him.

If your dog gets rigid when you walk by her dish, or if she growls if you get too close to her while she is eating, you might have a resource guarder! Don't try to fix this unwanted behavior yourself - you are at risk of being bitten. Call a professional in-home dog trainer for help with this relatively common problem.
