Dog owners should strive to imprint the desired response in their dogs, based on their individual temperament, in order for them to learn how to behave as family pets.

There are three important questions all dogs need to have answered by their owners, I talk about two of them in this post and they are as follows

1) What do I kill?

2) Where is that thing that will hurt me?

3) What do I do with my energy?

The third question is fundamentally the most important one and I addressed this question in a earlier post.

What do I do with my energy?

Now lets get to it..

If these two questions are not answered by the dogs owner in a way that speaks to how their temperament has evolved to answer them.. then the dogs instincts will kick in and they will take it upon themselves to find the solution..this is the reason most dogs can be well-trained, and their owners have put many hours of hard work into shaping behaviors and practicing obedience exercises only to have it all fly out the window when a squirrel runs by or some kid on a skate board rumbles toward them on the street.

When the owner fails to imprint desired responses, this deep-rooted, hardwired, instinctual reaction to life and death situations becomes mandatory for the dog.

Now this kind of reaction is perfectly normal for wild canines like the wolf.. who lives far removed from people and knows its terrain and it’s place in it, anytime a dog resorts to its natural instincts in the human world, things can and do go horribly wrong..the dog that chased the squirrel, runs across the road and gets hit by a car..or the boy on the skateboard gets to close to the dog and gets bitten..

When a dog is raised the natural way and the owner has imprinted on the dog the answers to these fundamental questions of,. what do I kill, and where is the danger..and the dog is in agreement with his owner..the dog will feel attracted to their owner  because they have the answer they seek..the dog becomes as close to 100% reliable and under control as it can be.

When a dog and his owner becomes part of the same team..and the two questions have been answered ..the dog will feel safe and trust that his owner has the satisfactory solution to the problem..

You don’t have to train a dog to be social..they are social to the highest level naturally..the only thing the owner need to do is answer the two questions.

all the best,
