Tip 1: The dog is stupid
Humans make false assumptions when they think that a dog has less intelligence and does not want to learn a new behavior. Even the dogs which seem less bright, constantly communicates us. Dogs speak to humans with their body language. They are very instinctive. If the dog fails to realize what his owner tries to teach him then it is not the fault of the dog. It is because the humans fail to send clear messages to the dog and because they fail to understand the pet’s body language. You must start at the training level. First you should persuade him to become successful. Then reward him for his primary steps. Gradually you will be able to train his behavior. At first you have to spell out the process to him. Then the dog will surely catch you.
Tip 2: The dog misbehaves due to anger and spite
Your dog may look for guidance from you but you have to remember that you are not an alpha wolf. An alpha wolf is a better pack leader than human beings. In some situations your dog may look for guidance from you. If an alpha wolf wants to make her point clear to the dog she may trouble them by chasing away or bite them. Perhaps she will try to chase them away from food and their mates or she may use some signs to show that she is the boss. Humans don’t have fur, tails or four legs, so if you act in this manner it will only confuse your dog.
Dogs are different from humans. They do not feel the same way as we do. They are not able to feel anger. On the other hand they can feel joy, excitement, faithfulness, trust and fear or anxiety. If next time your dog becomes mad at you try to understand its problem.
Tip 3: The dog needs a pack leader
Dogs perform certain actions because they are willing to receive rewards after the action is finished or while the action. When you ask a dog to sit then naturally he desires an award from you for this conditioned behavior. If a dog is chewing a couch then you have to understand that he is doing it because he wants removal of his anxiety and stress. Don’t think he is mad or angry at you because you have not played with him all day.
On the other hand you may follow B.F Skinner’s theory of classical conditioning. This theory suggests that if animal is given any prize for certain behavior then it would repeat that action again. If the owner punishes the animal then it is likely that it may not perform that the task anymore. Perhaps he would try to do that task in a different manner in order to refrain from punishment. If you want a well-behaved and socialized dog then you have to award him for the behavior which you desire from him.

The process is a unique one. Close relationship depends on empathy and understanding. If from your side you can communicate clearly then a strong bond may develop.
