Dogs do not know what is expected of them when they come into a new home and will pick up on cues from their environment. Sometimes the cues they pick up are confusing or they do not interpret them correctly. Some dogs may simply be too high strung and excitable to pay attention to cues and find their place within your household. When you bring home a dog that has been rescued from an abusive or neglectful environment, then they may struggle to adjust to the safety of your home. It is difficult to think about sending your dog to a boot camp, but there are three signs that they desperately need you to take that step.
