Dogs are wonderful companions but we often do things that annoy them without even realizing it. Some of these things can become problematic and make it difficult to train a dog or to build a good relationship with a pet. As a dog owner, you need to know about the things that might annoy, worry or even cause your dog to be annoyed – just like your pet sometimes does things that get on your nerves without realizing it!
1. Staring At Your Dog
For dogs, staring is often perceived as a challenge. You have probably noticed how your dog stared at squirrels or birds. Staring at your dog for too long could be seen as a challenge or a threat. Your own dog will probably not perceive it in a negative way but staring in the eyes of a dog who is aggressive or worried is definitely not a good idea. You can get your dog used to eye contact by asking other people to stare at your dog for a few seconds before looking away.
