Bad behavior stems from multiple factors such as fear, lack of socialization or even not enough exercise.
Some behavioral signs that can be changed:

Therapy dogs provide a much-needed companionship to people that may not receive it elsewhere. You may see therapy dogs in places like nursing homes, hospitals, schools, or retirement homes. Any type of dog can be a therapy dog, as long as they meet certain personality and obedience requirements,
Dogs that want to be therapy dogs are typically gentle and are able to remain calm and sit still, as well as be introduced to new people and touched easily.
In order to become a therapy dog, your dog must:
- Complete basic and advanced obedience training
- Enjoy meeting new people
- Follow basic obedience commands like sit, come or leave it
- Remain calm and still during visits
While therapy dogs are often confused with service dogs, there is a distinct difference. While a service dog is dedicated to one person with a specific need, therapy dogs are constantly meeting new people seeking friendly companionship. An ideal therapy dog will be in good health, have proper social skills and be comfortable being touched.
