Many people think that just because they have a small and cute dog, that they will not have a dog that has bad habits. However, they are wrong!
When it comes to the Manchester terrier, they are no different than any other dog. In fact, the Manchester terrier is just like every other dog, and has bad habits. However, many owners would like to pretend that they do not have any bad habits.
One of the biggest bad habits that are known in the Manchester terriers is that if they are not properly trained to be obedient, they can become very stubborn. Not only will they be stubborn, but they will also have a problem with dominance; even with humans. One of the best ways to nip that problem right from the beginning is by taking them to an obedience class.
Another problem that many people have with their Manchester terrier is that they do not like to be left alone for any amount of time. If for some chance that they are left alone, there is a good chance that they will become destructive. Not only do they tend to become destructive, but many of them also become snappy with people as well. Many times the destructive behavior is because they do not get enough mental stimulation or pure simple attention. The best way to cure the destructive behavior is to make sure that they not going to be left for a while and to simply show them that you love them. A little love goes a long way.
Many times when a Manchester terrier has a bad habit, it is only because the owner thinks of it as being a bad habit. In fact, many times the owners will make a small issue into an even bigger problem. One thing that many people do when they own a Manchester terrier is avoid taking them out for exercise. When the dog does not get the exercise it needs, it is not only bad for the dog but it is also bad for the owner - purely because the dog will become exceedingly hyper. Not only will they become hyper, but they may become mischievous, always get in the way and will never settle down.
Another bad habit that a lot, but not all Manchester terriers have is becoming highly strung when being around other dogs. In fact, many of them can be down right out of control. However, all you have to do is show them love and it will quickly change; they thrive on attention and love. Another problem that many people have (which may be a big one), is their dog barking or chewing needlessly. Many people do nothing about it because they feel it is just a phase; however, many dogs do it for the attention. All you have to do is show them that they are wanted and loved.
When it comes to the Manchester terriers and bad habits, they are not at all that different than any other breed of dog. In fact, there is probably no breed that does not have a bad habit. It is normal for a dog to have bad habits, just like humans.
