Growling is Good
Growling is good! Yes, really! Growling is your dogs way of telling you that they believe there is a problem that needs to be fixed.
- NEVER punish growling, or you can get a dog that may bite without warning.
- Try to get your dog to focus on you and reward him when he does rather than engage in the growling. At the same time – what is making your dog growl? Is he scared because something or someone is new? Is there really a bad person nearby? Dogs are constantly trying to communicate with us – we just need to listen.
Instead, you want to work with our dog trainer to find the cause of the growling and work with them to solve the problem. Call us today at (310) 480-6773 – we can help!
Our trainer is a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC) and the Association of Professional Dog Trainers with a Master’s in Business and a Bachelors of Science in Animal Science.
