It can be difficult to break your dog’s bad habits – especially when they reach a more mature age. However, it’s not impossible. If your pooch has got into a problematic pattern, it’s never too late to change the way they act. With this in mind, here are three bad habits that your pet can exhibit and three ways to combat them once and for all.
Problem: You may have become accustomed to your dog’s bark. In fact, it might no longer bother you in the slightest. However, all that woofing could be a huge nuisance to your neighbours - and that’s why you shouldn’t wait to nip it in the bud.
Solution: You can keep your canine’s noise to a minimum by using a pet corrector. The spray exudes a distinctive hiss that will distract your four-legged friend and hush their barking.
Problem: It can feel like your dog enjoys testing your patience when you walk in on them chewing a piece of property or furniture. Often it’s a horrible moment because not only will one of your prized possessions now bear teeth marks, but you’ll also have to punish your pet. Luckily, there’s a way to eliminate this scenario altogether.
Solution: There are now sprays that you can use on your furniture and surfaces to take away the appeal for your dog. Instead of spending hours gnawing away on a cushion like it's one of their favourite dog toys, your dog will instead taste the bitter formula and decide it’s not even worth it. Take a look at our stain and odour eliminator spray.
Problem: You’ll know all too well what it’s like to feel an extra body climb into bed with you just as you’re about to fall asleep. Some people allow it – but others would prefer their dog stayed in their own bed. This problem is often worse in the winter when the weather’s cold and your pooch is merely seeking a warmer place to sleep.
Solution: A heated pet pad can help your dog snap out of this behaviour as they provide a more pleasant place in which to relax.
