Yelling and scolding your dog when they misbehave is a natural reaction, but this could be negatively impacting your pet's health. Find out what to do instead!
The Doctors discuss a study that found yelling at your dog can potentially scare them -- not only in the moment -- but also in the longterm. Researchers found dogs that were yelled at had higher stress levels, which can possibly lead to negative health outcomes.
Instead of yelling or scolding, the study found positive reinforcement and reward-based training provides dogs with clear direction about how to behave. This can lead to more confidence and better behavior in your pet.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork suggests to not coddle your dog and says he feels it is best for pet owners to be stern when needed, but without yelling and confusing the animal.
So before your raise your voice at your lovable four-legged friend, consider a new approach like giving them a treat when they behave appropriately.
