Have you ever wondered why dogs have strange habits? Why does your dog eat grass and make himself sick when you feed him perfectly good dog food?
Why does he eat his own poo ...Disgusting?
Why does he chew my new shoes when he has his own bone?
Many of these and other habits can be put down to genetics, instincts, breeding or just the past experiences of your dog and the environment he lives in.
Your dog is an individual. All dogs need a certain amount of attention, exercise, health care and they need to know their position in the structure of your family and the roll that they play in your life.
Once your dog understands that you are the alpha dog in your family, and it is you who is the leader, he will quickly settle into family life and many of these annoying habits will not develop.
