Many dog owners are faced with bad behavior in their dogs, and if you’re facing dog behavioral problems, it’s advisable to act immediately. If bad dog behavior is allowed to continue, you may end up with a a bigger dog and bigger problems on your hands. Thankfully, there are many simple techniques to implement change in dog behavior issues in a humane and loving way.

Dog behavioral problems can run the gamut from funny, but annoying pet-peeve problems, to full fledged dangerous issues such as a dog attack. Although there are various causes of behavioral problems, the solutions are pretty consistent. The old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” isn’t an excuse and with consistent training, you can address dog behavior problems. Let’s look at a few really easy dog training tips.

1. Stick to It.

This is the absolute key when training any pet. You may be tempted to let them slide every once in awhile, but this will only serve to hamper your training. Be sure to follow through with praise as well as with discipline and your dog will begin to see that you are absolutely the pack leader.

2. Rewards are Integral to Success.

While many older dog training techniques, like putting your dog’s nose in their mess, may seem initially effective, they may actually cause more issues later on. Positive reinforcement helps your dog relate good behavior with good rewards, and is a very effective means of tackling even the toughest dog behavior problems.

In brief, reinforcing good behavior means that you reward a dog when he or she does what you are training him or her to do, and deny the reward when they don’t. Even the most stubborn dog will begin to respond to these strategies, when they are applied habitually.

3. Introduce a Crate.

One of the simplest ways to put an end to destructive behavior is to provide your dog with clear cut boundaries. Crating them while you are gone, or when you need some space is an effective and humane training aid. You may need to introduce them to the crate slowly, and give them time to get used to being confined. Remember, be consistent and reward them for good behavior in their crate. A crate should never be used as a punishment device, only as a quiet place for them to go and be at ease.

4. A last piece of advice for you and especially your immediate family members.

Once the dog behavioral problems are addressed, and the corrective training has started, it is imperative everyone addressing the dog use the same-exact training commands and positive reinforcement. Everyone must be consistent in the handling of the dog. If not, your poor pet will become very frustrated and may misbehave even more than before the positive reinforcement training was begun.

This system of approaching your pet will result in effectively remediating your dog behavioral issues, without causing your pet harm or severing the relationship between you and your pet.  You’ll notice your pooch rewards you with a new, loving attitude, and a healthy respect, not out of fear but out of love.  Use this approach when you want to erradicate dog behavioral problems for good.

What’s wrong with this picture?: Excessive damages charges from landlord?

Question by Mrs. Coogan: What’s wrong with this picture?: Excessive damages charges from landlord?
These are the charges I received from my ex-landlord after asking to be reimbursed for nearly 00 worth of our belongings which she threw out, claiming that our apartment was “abandoned”. Our rent was paid through the month, she acknowledges on the form that we did indeed provide proper notice and we finished our term. The charges total 73, less our deposits (0, including pet deposits), bringing the bill to 73. The charges just seem very fishy to me. The apartment is only about 800 sq. ft. Also, that woman was recently fired for stealing money hmmm…

5: Claims that we owed 5 in rent: A lie, since it was paid in full for 6 months and that was the first we heard of this. I believe it was made up to justify her “abandonment” claim.
: Repair door scratches from our dog, a legit charge, I agree.
,718: For removing old carpet, replacing, and “slab treatment”, whatever that is. This is the main charge I’m concerned with.
0: For heavy cleaning. The unit was indeed dirty b/c we had not yet finished moving when she took it upon herself to do this. Had we been given the proper chance, it wouldn’t have been left that dirty.
0: Trash removal?
: Keys not turned in (big clue it wasn’t abandoned). She never asked for them.
: Paint touch up. We didn’t damage the walls at all, this is normal wear and tear.
5: Carpet CLEANING. How is this possible, to charge for what seems to be multiple cleanings AND replacement?
0: De-flea. Our dogs didn’t have fleas, they were on medication monthly for that. Plus, that’s what she claimed the “slab treatment” was for.

What seems wrong here to you guys?

Best answer:

Answer by cowgrl
Are these the estimates she gave you or copies of the actual receipts? She needs to give you real copies of the actual receipts/invoices; she can’t just tell you whatever she feels like telling you.

How long did you live there? If you had lived there for over a year, she can’t charge for carpet cleaning and painting unless there is real damage like rips/tears in the carpet or holes in the wall bigger than a nail.

If you have pictures of the place, you can use that to prove replacement of the carpets was not necessary; if you can’t see anything bad in the pictures, it didn’t need to be replaced. She also cannot charge you for the entire cost of new carpet unless it was brand-new when you moved in and were only there for a short time. 10 years is the “accepted” carpet life; if the carpet was older than that, she cannot charge you at all, even if she really did have to replace it. If the carpet was 5 years old, she can only charge 50%, etc. It does seem fishy that she would clean the carpets AND have them replaced…

If you can prove you paid rent in full (receipts, checks, etc.), then do not give her the 5, although this area of your story is lacking detail.

As for the “heavy cleaning,” trash removal, etc.- if this was done prior to the end of your lease, I wouldn’t pay it because she indeed didn’t give you a chance to take care of this yourself. You have a right as a tenant to know what she intends to do and give you an opportunity to do it yourself.

Hope this helped.
