[DOG GROWLING] [DOG GROWLING] [MUSIC PLAYING] Behavior problems, to me, fall into three basic categories. The first category is the dog has a screw loose. It does happen, but it's pretty rare, and usually, there's another explanation. The second category is that the behavior problem is not a problem. It's an expression of an inheritable trait that we bred for for hundreds or even thousands of years that all of a sudden we find inconvenient because we live in townhomes. A good example of this would be people who bring home a Sheltie and then are just floored that the dog barks constantly. [DOG BARKING] Well, unfortunately, Shelties were bred to move livestock by barking at it, and it's been bred into them for thousands of generations. And breeders work really hard to get that good, strong bark. You are going to have to do a lot of training to stop that dog from barking at a mailman. And the third category, and the one that we'll be dealing with here, is that the dog missed a crucial piece of education or conditioning during his critical period and that what you see as a behavior problem is actually just a true and correct expression of his default genetic material. You have to do some pretty strong intervention between 3 and 12 weeks to shape the kind of dog that you want to live with, that most people want to live with. A veritable cottage industry has sprung up around dogs with behavior problems. And some of the best and brightest minds in dog training have dedicated their lives to helping people with dogs with behavior problems. Fearful dogs, aggressive dogs, dogs with neurotic problems. It's just amazing the strides that have been made in this area. But even the best and brightest trainers are only chasing the symptoms and not the cause. We should be looking at how to raise dogs without those behavior problems. [MUSIC PLAYING]
