It sounds crazy but believe it or not you can love your dog too much. When you pile on the love and affection while neglecting your dog’s basic canine needs serious problems can arise.
Now I’m not saying your should stop loving your dog – no way. However, you need to make sure you’re not focusing too much on your own needs and wants, and forgetting that your dog has very different priorities. I see way too many people who love their dogs more than anything but are not aware that they are causing a number of behavior issues that could eventually lead to them giving up the very dog they love so much. It happens more than you think.
I’ll show you what you need to be careful of and exactly how you can create a healthy relationship with your dog that will keep you together for a long, long time.
