Dogs are pack animals, in other words, they prefer to be social and part of a group. Everyone in your household is part of your dog’s pack, and when all of you are gone for long periods of time, she feels alienated and alone. Ideally, your grown dog should not be left alone for more than four hours a day.

5. Leaving Her With Too Many Dogs

Your pup might get a little big uncomfortable if surrounded by too many other dogs in a dog park or a doggy day care. See to it that you aren’t overwhelming your dog by surrounding her with too many other dogs, especially if she is already a timid pooch.

Interrupting your dog’s sleep interupted is jarring and, quite frankly, rude! How would you like to be suddenly woken up by a loud noise or someone petting you on the head in the middle of a really great dream? We are pretty sure you wouldn’t like it either.

7. Yelling

Even if you aren’t shouting directly at your dog, it can still stress her out. Yelling at the TV or at a burned pot of rice can scare your pup and make her think that you are angrily barking at something. No one likes to be in a tense and negative environment,that includes your dog.

8. Neglecting To Stick To A Schedule

If your dog doesn’t like the sound of the vacuum cleaner, try to gradually introduce her to it rather than just exposing her to it all at once. You can temporarily avoid creating loud sounds she doesn’t like, but also reward her when she gets brave and confronts her fears on her own.
