Dog Behaviour Expert
Hi Annalise, good question! In my own experience i have come across very few 'bad dogs' and when i have it has been the result of unprofessional and backyard breeding where the genetics of the dogs to be bred have not been looked at.
The rest of the dogs i have dealt with with behaviour problems have really only been a lack of owner knowledge and training which could have been solved right from the beginning. People do not do this on purpose, they just have not been taught correctly.
Difficult dogs - yes come across many! My own border collie Brady is a prime example. He performed every problem behaviour you could think of and he is very well bred with wonderful parents. Sometimes i think it is that these dogs end up with the people they do in order for us to widen our own horisons! Take care, Scotty
