This is the first video for Treat2treat where we spot and explain a false dog behaviour, giving advice on how to correct it. This weekend while being on a dog show in Newark, a border collie took part in an agility test. When the test was over the owner had him on the leash and the dog was very stressed. As you can see at the video the dog was barking but the owner didn’t pay attention. Not correcting the wrong behaviour meant he was reinforcing it. Of course the dog wanted to get back on the field and play instead of watching and being on the leash
Treat2treat advice: If the dog becomes stressed, remove him from the stressful source, change his environment.
