Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:02 pm

MANAGING THE MUD So you are ready to go back inside, but you aren’t ready to mop the floors? What do you do if your dog has managed to get covered in mud? Even if it is just the paws, tracking mud into the house can make for a major cleaning project. Here is how to manage the mud tracking: Get doormats for each doorway to the outside. Make sure they look similar to one another. These mats will serve as a visual barrier to entry for your dog that, with your help and training, can show the dog just where to wait before coming inside. Pair each doormat with a towel for wiping down paws. Practice makes perfect. Make sure to gear up your daily practice of obedience training so that you can train your dog to apply their knowledge to the new season’s activities. Sit or Stand Stay is the perfect command to replace the wiggle worm behaviors commonly associated with paw cleaning. Remember, consistency and repetitions create habits in both humans and canines alike. Make your trips outside an adventure within limits that are clear to the dog. Show them what you do and do not want them to do over and over again before expecting them to understand and do it on their own. A few weeks of chaperoning may be a lot of work, but it will pay off in years of trustworthiness and positive behavior in your dog. While we cannot help you teach your dog to mop the floors themselves, we are here if you have any questions on how to curb spring fever.

When Your Dog Loves You Too Much… Separation

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:01 pm

When Your Dog Loves You Too Much… Separation Anxiety is often misdiagnosed in the canine world. Sometimes it is really just boredom or the dog becoming adventurous when given the opportunity. If your dog seems to follow you and stick to you like glue, and/or if destruction is happening within the first 20 minutes you are away, then you are probably dealing with some form of separation anxiety. Here are some things that you can do to help: – Keep your comings and goings neutral! Don’t make a big fuss at either time. – Practice leaving with your normal cues (pick up your keys, grab your purse, put on your work shoes, etc.), then don’t leave. This will help desensitize your dog to your departures. – Give your dog a hobby while you are gone. Stuff a Kong, leave treats around the house, utilize a feeding tube, or anything that will get your dog up, moving and eating. A dog that is eating is not a stressed dog. – Leave your dog with an article of clothing that smells like you, such as an old t-shirt that you recently slept in. – A good dog is a tired dog! Try to exercise your dog more both mentally and physically.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:11 pm

Is Your Dog a Canine Good Citizen? The American Kennel Club offers a Canine Good Citizen program designed to measure your dog’s social manners out and about. The testing evaluates several things your dog has been trained for, such as walking on a loose leash, meet and greets with dogs and people, basic commands, distraction work, separation and grooming. Upon passing the test, the American Kennel Club issues a certification formally acknowledging him as a Canine Good Citizen. The test is required by most therapy dog programs, and is a great foundation if you are interested in doing this type of work with your dog. The ten items on the Canine Good Citizen test are: -Accepting a friendly stranger. -Sitting politely for petting. -Reaction to another dog. -Reaction to distraction. -Walking on a loose lead. -Walking through a crowd. -Appearance and grooming. -Sit and down on command, and staying in place. -Coming when called. -Supervised separation. Is Your Dog Ready? Make sure your dog can accomplish the objectives not only in your home, but also in different environments with new distractions. Group Classes are the perfect place for this. In fact, let the trainer know you are working towards this goal and we’ll specifically help you with some of the requirements. If your dog performs well at group class, that is a great first step in earning the certificate. For all rules and regulations, visit The AKC Site.

5 New Years Resolutions for your Dog 1. Walk Your Dog – Making a goal to walk your dog everyday will help you and your pet get into better shape. By using a control walk, you will be reinforcing your dog’s place in the family. 2. Obedience Training – You know what to do, but are you being consistent? Resolve to spend 5-10 minutes every other day brushing up on your dog’s obedience skills. While you are at it, come to a few tune-up classes and really flex your alpha muscles. 3. Annual Exam – Just like people, dogs need to have an annual check-up to make sure that everything is working properly and that there is nothing going on beneath the surface. Since symptoms can go unnoticed, a visit to your veterinarian’s office might be the key to catching something early. If your pet has not seen a veterinarian in the last year consider making an appointment for its physical exam. 4. Socialization – If your dog isn’t given the opportunity to be around other dogs, then problems can arise. You might notice barking when you are out for a walk when they see another dog. This can escalate into something more, so it’s always a good idea to allow your dog to socialize with other pets as much as possible. 5. Helping a Rescue Organization- What a great New Years Resolution! Rescue organizations are always in need of volunteers, food and blankets, or monetary contributions. You can celebrate your dog by giving to an animal welfare organization.

A dog that is eating is not a stressed dog. – Leave your dog with an article of clothing that smells like you, such as an old t-shirt that you recently slept in. – A good dog is a tired dog!

LESSON NOTES STAND/STAY COMMAND ** NOTE: Before teaching stand/stay your dog should have a complete understanding of sit/stay. * Begin with your dog in a sit/stay on your left side facing in the same direction you are. * Using your right hand reach across your body grasping the leash about 6” from your dog collar. * Step back and place your left hand (palm toward yourself) on the deep inside of your right thigh. * Then as you give the command “stand” pull forward with your right hand while using your left hand to lift the dogs hind quarter into the air. * Once your dog reaches the standing position give the command to “stay”, then step in front of your dog. * Keep in mind, most dogs will attempt to sit. If this should happen, move quickly, stepping forward with your left leg (putting your hand back inside your thigh), then lightly snap the leash toward you as you lift your dogs hind quarters into the the stand position, and say “NO !!” (correction tone) then say “stand”. (light command tone). * Continue to follow the above steps for seven full days before expecting the dog to stand on his own. * Consult your training instructor for the next steps.

FOURTH OF JULY Fireworks are a fact of

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:05 pm

FOURTH OF JULY Fireworks are a fact of the holiday and very few other days of the year. They are big, beautiful, exciting, and loud. Remember, for your dog who has hearing ten times more sensitive than we do, the loud part can catch your dog unaware, disorient them, and create anxiety. In fact, often times fight or flight instincts kick in and dogs shelters will be inundated with dogs on the days following fireworks displays. While some dogs have little or no reaction, for others, fireworks can cause serious disturbances that can be emotionally scarring for them. Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which one any individual dog is or how any event may affect your dog. Here are some guidelines to consider prior to the festivities: Bringing Your Dog With You May we suggest you reconsider bringing your dog with you on your fourth adventures? These displays are not made for dogs. Often the aerial display is accompanied by sparklers and amateur displays which are lower and less predictable. Flashes of light, loud explosions, and crowds make for a confused and anxious dog with nowhere to go. Further, do not leave your dog in your car while you enjoy the show. This only reduces the “trapped” feeling to the confines of your vehicle which can result in destruction, soiling, and injury from exertion of anxious energies. Remember, a scared dog in a crowd is a danger to both itself and the people around it. Leashes and collars are not infallible. Leaving Your Dog Behind If you leave your dog at home and fireworks are being displayed nearby, make sure that they are in a place that is indoors where they have the least likelihood of causing damage to your home or themselves. Crates are strongly recommended if your dog has crating experience. Turn on, and up, your radio or television to mask the sound of the fireworks. Close your blinds or curtains to mask the flashing lights. Take away your dog’s favorite toy a day or two before the festivities, and return it in time for the event. This way, they can be distracted by something you know that will give them happiness. In Either case Regardless of your canine’s location, some basic steps should be taken to ensure their safety. Make sure that their tags are up to date, including one with your contact information, in the event that their fight or flight instinct gives them wings. To be doubly sure, make sure your dog is micro chipped and that that information is also correct in the event of a collar failure. Let your dog do its business prior to time for the fireworks displays. Play with them more than usual to ensure that they are tired and therefore less likely to have the energy to expend with nervousness. If your dog does react negatively to the fireworks, remember not to coddle them. If you coddle or hold them during this time, it will feel exactly the same as when you praise them. In other words, you’ll be telling them: “Good job being nervous! That’s what you should be doing! Keep it up!”. In contrast, light massage style petting, if your dog will let you, when practiced without pity or nervousness can help calm both of you.

Is Your Dog a Canine Good Citizen? The

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:00 am

Is Your Dog a Canine Good Citizen? The American Kennel Club offers a Canine Good Citizen program designed to measure your dog’s social manners out and about. The testing evaluates several things your dog has been trained for, such as walking on a loose leash, meet and greets with dogs and people, basic commands, distraction work, separation and grooming. Upon passing the test, the American Kennel Club issues a certification formally acknowledging him as a Canine Good Citizen. The test is required by most therapy dog programs, and is a great foundation if you are interested in doing this type of work with your dog. The ten items on the Canine Good Citizen test are: -Accepting a friendly stranger. -Sitting politely for petting. -Reaction to another dog. -Reaction to distraction. -Walking on a loose lead. -Walking through a crowd. -Appearance and grooming. -Sit and down on command, and staying in place. -Coming when called. -Supervised separation. Is Your Dog Ready? Make sure your dog can accomplish the objectives not only in your home, but also in different environments with new distractions. Group Classes are the perfect place for this. In fact, let the trainer know you are working towards this goal and we’ll specifically help you with some of the requirements. If your dog performs well at group class, that is a great first step in earning the certificate. For all rules and regulations, visit The AKC Site.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:08 am

Family Pet & Behavior “Basic Obedience” Control Walking- “Let’s Walk” is the command your dog will hear to walk. During training, your dog learns casual walking manners. Getting a little ahead, lingering behind and sniffing around are allowed as long as your dog remains off to your left side and does not pull on the leash. Usage: Taking a casual walk around your neighborhood. Heel w/Auto-sit- “Fido Heel” Once given the command to heel your dog will have to maintain a position on your left side, keeping his collar next to your left leg. If you should change your direction of travel your dog will change his to stay at your side without guidance from the leash. During the training process, we teach your dog to heel past distractions. The Heel Command requires better concentration from your dog then a controlled walk and keeps your dog safe at your side. Usage:Walking in a crowd or around distractions and children. Sit/Stay- “Fido Sit” This Command, when properly taught, teaches your dog to sit on the first command. Once in the seated position, your dog will hear the command to stay. Once your dog hears the stay command, he must remain seated until you give him the release command or password. Our trainers will teach your dog to stay with few distractions. Once we are certain your dog understands the command, then we can ask him to maintain his stay for longer periods of time. Your dog’s first stay will only last 2 seconds, after the training your dog should stay for at least 3 minutes. Your dog should be able to maintain a stay even if he would rather jump on your company. Usage: In front of food dish, at doorways, veterinarian office and sitting calmly for petting. Down/Stay- “Fido Down” This command teaches your dog to lie down. Just like the stay in sit/stay, your dog will wait for your permission before getting up. You should be able to step over your dog while he is in a down position. Being told to lie down can make a dog nervous, once your dog sees that lying down pleases you, he will accept it better and have a higher degree of trust for you. Usage: Helps to build trust, assists in gaining leadership, and used to calm and relax your dog. ——————————————————————————– Family Pet & Behavior “Basic Obedience” Come “Fido Come” This is the most important command your dog will learn. We teach this command using several different techniques to ensure your dog learns it very well. When given the command to come, your dog should be able to break away from distractions and come directly to you and hold a sit in front of you until given the formal release command. We like to think of your dog’s commands as a game that your dog must play. His life may depend on how well he does this command. Usage: To call your dog away from danger, also used during games and retrieving. Doorway Entry “Fido Wait And Back” This is a two part command. First, we teach your dog to do an assumed wait at all open doorway to the house and or car. Second, we teach your dog to back away from the doorway about 5 to 6 feet, allowing you to open the door and sign for a package and not worry about your dog. Usage: Control your dog when company comes over and assert pack leadership. Place – “Fido Place” The most used command we teach. This command teaches your dog to go to his bed, from anywhere in the home, on command. Once there he can lay down play with toys or just nap. This is not punishment, your dog will see it as his play pen with no walls. Place is a happy command. Your dog can learn to place for up to 1-1/2 Hours at a time. Usage: During dinner, signing for a package, and as a calming command. Hand Signals- “Visual Cue” During training our instructors will use a hand signal with each command. Your dog will learn the commands faster when a unique hand signal is taught for each command. Usage: Speeds learning of commands, extends your dog’s range to follow commands and teaches your dog to watch you more in anticipation of commands. Problem Solving- During our programs we address very specific behavioral problems, your instructors set up and initiate procedures to bring your dogs problems under control. Any or all of these problems are addressed during training… Housebreaking Play Biting Jumping On People Pulling Won’t Come Leg Hiking Door Crashing Mounting Stealing Food Going Through Trash Fence Jumping Car Sickness Digging Piddling Growling Barking Begging Chewing Biting Speration Anxiety
