If you’ve got a new pooch and you’re having trouble trying to get your dog to listen to you then you may be dealing with a lack of respect when it comes to your little buddy. It can be hard to get your dog to respect you, especially if they’re already pushing you around and acting like the alpha in the situation. Respect issues can happen with all dog breeds. If you’re asking yourself, “does my dog respect me?” Then you need to check out this list and see how many of these behaviors that they’re exhibiting.
