Come to think of the two bad behaviors that Wille has had here at home and that both have disappeared without me recognize it. One was to eat from the litter box (which is really a disgusting thing to do) and the other was trying to reach the cat food on the dinner table. I can not remember when we last had that discussion, Wille and me.
Have your dogs had any bad behavior that just disappeared?
Sometimes we talk so much about training that we never talk about when it’s time to let something be so that it maybe will disappear by itself. It might have had with Wille’s age to do.
But is it ever a good idea to let a bad behavior be and then just see if it gets better by itself?
Tried to figure out what I have done to break this bad behavior. One is to use the word no when he does something that he may not, for example, show interest in the cat food. Being close to the cat’s food didn´t matter much, but the interest in the food did get a firm no from me.
I spent a lot of time on these two things before. During the night when the bathroom door was open after that Ebba had opened it, and I heard him sneak in there. The sand in the litter box always told on him. So I had to go up in the middle of the night to tell him to go out from the bathroom (I was too late of course) and then close the door. But it was a while ago now.
He is two years and soon three months and it’s only now that all work has paid off.
