Imagine if we could actually “fix” dogs. One misconception is that rehabilitation will completely “fix” your dog. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The reality is there is no quick “fix” for rehabilitating a dog. Don’t let trainers trick you into thinking all of your dog’s issues will just disappear. Does a drug addict really get “fixed” from going to rehab? No. They have to maintain a specific lifestyle to stay sober. The lifestyle and structure they were taught in rehabilitation.
Behaviour Modification Takes Time
We can make very good transformations, improvements, and changes. But all dogs will still have their own personalities and genetics. After a solid dog training program, they will still be themselves but a much better version of themselves and that better version of themselves can be maintained through continuing to follow the specific routine and training provided by us.
Each dog has their own past and that past affects the emotional state of each dog very differently. Some dogs will make better transformations than others depending on many factors. The goal should be to make improvements, to maintain those improvements and to continue training to improve our dog’s state of mind and lifestyle.
Through behaviour modification training and working as a team (owner and trainer), the behaviour issues will fade away with time after we have laid a very solid foundation, but we have to work our dogs through their triggers continuously. We have to help our dogs cope with their issues by working them through their issues through proper leadership. No coddling, spoiling, rewarding for no reason but correcting nonsense, creating firm rules and boundaries, and providing structure!
Remember, dog training is for life! It happens every single day, it doesn’t stop.
