Today's domesticated dogs have no choices and must depend on us for everything including their entertainment and education.
Maybe in the past dogs were allowed to rome off leash and go where they pleased, usually when they pleased. When their humans were busy there was plenty of activities. This is just not the case anymore. Your dog cannot go running around on the streets and find usually themselves locked indoors with a lack of entertainment.
People need to understand that we have taken away all choices an animal gets to make, with out any trade off. We then wonder why our dogs build such bad habits, like barking for instance.
It's time people considered what their dogs want's and need's in this life. It's more than just a bowl of food and a dry bed. They need to have fun, play, learn, and explore daily. We all too often prevent our dogs from doing any of that and forcing our dogs into uncomfortable situations, expecting them to be nice to everyone.
Consider your dog's wellbeing and ask yourself are they satisfied before you let yourself think that your dog is a bad dog. They probably are doing the best they can with the circumstances you have given them.
