You finally caved and have become a dog owner.
Even though you are experiencing the joys of having a new family member around, you may have no idea what kinds of dog behavior should be accepted or not.
For example, you've heard from your friends who are also beloved dog owners, to not let your four-legged buddy sleep with you on your bed or jump up on your couch because that shows that the dog is dominant and eventually will not listen to you.

Certified animal behavior consultant, Steve Dale, CABC, discusses your dog's behavior, what it's telling you and proper ways to help improve behavior before it gets completely out of control.
