Capture Desired Behavior Capturing a desired behavior: This

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:04 pm

Capture Desired Behavior Capturing a desired behavior: This is a great way to help an owner gain some progress between practing commands formally. I use this with a dog that is especially difficult on Down for instance, like the 7 year old Sharpei I trained that was extremely resistant with the owner. We used the Down with Chair method, which is a form of capturing the behavior…and this method combined. Most of us know about Capturing Behavior. The main reason for adding this page is to remind you to inform the clien’ts to use it. We use it often for a dog that is housebreaking, but it can be helpful for other things as well. So, whenever a dog does a desired command such as the Down, say “Good Down” while showing the hand signal if the dog will not be aggressive to the hand signal. I know some dogs can get aggressive when they see or hear the command. If the dog gets stiff / looks aggressive when you give the command verbally, try using the hand signal only. You can click and treat a dog when capturing behavior. Advantages: This can be done even when the dog is just about to lie down in it’s bed or crate and from a distance if necessary. Repetition of this is key, as with all commands. Christina Russell

Deaf Dog Remote Vibrating Collar Deaf Dog Remote Vibrating Collar – I have used a remote collar that vibrates when you press the transmit button on the remote. I have used the vibration as the dogs name and or as the marking of a behavior. However there are some problems with using these collars. Some dogs are very scared of the collar.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:00 pm

Head, Shoulders, Knees, & Toes Each breed of dog comes with its own requirements for physical maintenance. The level and frequency of care required depend on the length and type of hair and frequently observed skin conditions. It’s always important to consult your veterinarian prior to beginning any feeding or maintenance regimen, but here are a few considerations to be made during your planning process. Brushing & Haircuts Most dogs enjoy a brushing and should receive a full body brush down on a regular basis. What is regular? It depends. Longer haired dogs often require daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling. Medium length dogs should receive weekly brushings. Short haired canines can last up to a month. You can brush your dog more than its minimum requirement as long as you are using gentle strokes in the direction of hair growth and your dog’s skin is not aggravated. Brushing more often than the minimum requirements will result in reduced shedding and hair build up. See the second article below which discusses the different types of brushes to choose the appropriate one for your dog! If you have a dog with a continuously growing coat of hair (Poodles and Shih Tzus are two breeds of this type), then you will need to have their hair cut and/or styled each month in order to keep their coat managed properly. Each dog is different, so make sure that you check with your professional groomer to ensure appropriate spacing between appointments. Bathing Actual bathing experiences can occur as frequently as weekly or as infrequently as monthly depending upon your dogs breed and activity. Always use soap-free shampoos designed specifically for dogs to ensure the least risk of skin reactions. If your dog has specific issues with its skin, consult a veterinarian for directions before bathing. Tubs are almost always the easiest place to wash dogs. Remember to put on an apron, bathing suit, or old clothing because you may get wet yourself! If indoor bathing is just not going to work, perhaps an inexpensive plastic children’s pool would better suit the purpose, and make it easier to keep your house dry. Brush your dog prior to getting it wet. This will allow you to remove tangles and mats before the water makes them harder to deal with. Ears What was that command you just gave? Maybe your dog can’t hear you! Dog ears can be prone to bacterial and yeast infections if they are not appropriately cared for appropriately. Dogs with floppy ears and/or long hair are most likely to have more ear-related issues due to reduced air exposure to the ear canal. For other dogs, allergies are the culprit for repeated ear issues. Each month during its bath, a dog’s ears should be washed out and treated. For a detailed instruction on how to wash your dog’s ears visit this site. If your dog’s ears smell or are specifically dirty, special cleaning agents and medications from your vet may be necessary. Teeth Did you know that dogs need their teeth brushed? In fact, dogs should receive a brushing twice per week to reduce plaque build-up that can threaten their cardiac wellbeing. Between brushings, dry food and biscuits are the best choice to ensure dental health. If your dog’s teeth are already discolored and plaque has begun to build, ask your vet if your dog may need a more thorough cleaning that only the vet can offer. Tools of the Trade Different brushes are required for different dog breeds, coats, and grooming requirements. Here is an overview of some general categories of brushes available: Type of Hair Coat Recommended Brush Type Brushing Direction Short, smooth coats (most Retrievers, Hounds, Chihuahuas, etc.) Soft to medium bristle brush with short, closely spaced bristles With the coat’s grain Short, wiry coats (Terriers, etc.) Firm bristle brush with short, closely spaced bristles; and a slicker brush With the coat’s grain Medium to long flowing coats (Golden Retrievers, Spaniels, Setters, Lhasa Apso, etc.) Soft to medium bristle brush with long, medium- to wide-spaced bristles; a wire-pin brush; and a slicker brush for mats and tangles With the coat’s grain Harsh, outer coats with soft, woolly undercoats (Sheepdogs, Collies, Shepherds, Chows, Pomeranians, etc.) Firm bristle brush with long, wide-spaced bristles; a wire-pin brush; and a slicker brush for tangles and mats With the grain — outer coat; Against the grain–under coat Thin, delicate coats (Yorkies, Maltese, etc.) Wire-pin brush; and a soft slicker brush for tangles and mats With and against the coat’s grain Table Information excerpted from Guide to Home Pet Grooming by Dr. Chris C. Pinney, D.V.M. Used by arrangement with Barron’s Educational Series, Inc. Hauppauge, New York. Regardless of your brush selection, your brush strokes need to be slow and gentle. Tangles and mats can be difficult to deal with, but your patience will help make the experience better for both you and your dog. The more your brushing experience is positive, the more your dog will like the process, and the less trouble they will give you when you try to repeat it. A rushed and painful experience will make it more difficult to brush your dog later because he or she will certainly remember a negative experience. Build trust and bond with your dog by doing frequent and short brushing sessions to keep them mat and tangle free! Getting Your Dog Accustomed to Being Groomed Grooming can emphasize your dog’s trust with you. It is an integral part to your relationship and can definitely benefit your training program. Once you have the proper tools together, it is time to utilize your dog’s basic skills in a practical way. You will need to teach your dog to lie or sit quietly while being groomed and it is beneficial to also teach them to roll over and show you their bellies. First, have your dog lie down and then use “stay!” Next, brush your dog gently. If they get up, place them back and repeat the “stay!” command. Start out with short sessions and be sure to praise your dog calmly and soothingly while they remain still. Work through the coat gently and as you get to more tender areas, you can distract your dog with a treat. Remember to be calm! If you get exicted, so will your dog. As your dog improves, lenghthen your sessions. If you do this several times a week, in no time you will have a dog that is a pleasure to groom.

RULES OF THE ROAD If you are planning

RULES OF THE ROAD If you are planning on taking your dog on a road trip with you this summer, here are some things to remember: GET UP TO DATE: Check your dog’s vaccinations and tags. Bring copies of your shot records with you. Make sure all relevant information is available on their tags. PREPARE TO PREVENT: Put on a fresh coat of flea and tick preventative, and make sure they’ve had their heartworm preventative for the month. Bring a veterinary first aid kit with you. These are available at most pet stores. STOCK UP: Make sure you have enough food, medications, and bottled water with you for your dog. Bringing bottled water can sometimes prevent dogs from getting stomach aches due to changes in water content. BUCKLE UP: Get a canine car harness. They help your dog stay in one seat and remain secure during any quick stopping. These are available at pet stores. CHECK OUT BEFORE YOU CHECK IN: There are many pet-friendly hotels for you to stop at along the way. Dogfriendly.com, petswelcome.com, bringfido.com, and doginmysuitcase.com are just a few of the many sites that the many list pet friendly accommodations available. Never leave your dog alone in the hotel room. This will prevent them coming in contact with unknowns and keep them secure. Always put out the do not disturb sign to prevent anyone from accidentally opening the door to a surprise when your dog greets them, or worse letting the dog out into the hotel unleashed. PLAN FOR PIT STOPS: Remember to plan a stop every two to three hours for your dog to go to the bathroom. Always clean up after your dog. Never leave a dog alone in a parked car because heat conditions may rapidly change. Regardless of location, always keep your dog on leash for both your security and theirs.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:03 pm

Canine Costume Pet costumes can be entertaining and fun for humans. Some dogs even like them! For other dogs, Halloween costumes are a nightmare. Here are some tips on selecting a costume, getting them to wear it, and alternatives in the event that your dog is truly uncomfortable. Selecting a Costume: Make sure you select the correct size for your dog. If the costume is too large, it will shift and become uncomfortable. Your dog will also be able to wiggle right out of it and walk away. If the size is too small, your dog’s motion will be restricted. Be sure that the costume does not rub your dog the wrong way. Friction around the neckline or the front legs are common, regardless of correct sizing. Do not select a costume with small or dangling parts. These can become entanglement and choking hazards that can result in strangulation and injury if the dog attempts to escape or destroy their costume. Consider an alternative costume. These do not have restrictive strapping around the back or torso. Hats, elastic cuffs around the legs, or neckwear may be more acceptable to your pet than a full suit. Playing Dress Up: If your dog is not used to wearing clothing, you must use positive reinforcement. Dress the dog in the costume, then in a positive and/or excited tone offer praise, treats, and physical attention. If you can’t even get the costume on the dog, show the dog the costume and do the same routine. Bring it closer and closer to the dog each time. As long as the dog stays relaxed, then you may drape the costume over the dog’s back while offering this praise. Once they are ok with putting it over their back, accelerate to putting on portions of the costume, building up to the full costume experience. Practice with dog clothes. Take them for walks with them on. Let them play and relax around the house with it on. Distract the dog with fun activities. If your dog will move, offer him fun and games in their costume. Alternative Holiday Wear: Halloween Doggiedanas. If a collar is tolerable, a bandana may be an acceptable decoration even when a full outfit is not comfortable for your dog. Dog Collars. Many pet and department stores offer collars that themselves have Halloween décor on them. If they wear a collar, simply switch for the holiday version! Resource Halloween Safety Remember that if your dog is uncomfortable, they may be irritable. We suggest not bringing your dog along for a Trick and Treat excursion if they are in discomfort. Be vigilant with children petting your dog when they are in costume. With the excitement of the holiday, children can unintentionally be hurtful, and dogs can be nervous. This is not a good combination. With lots going on, pay lots of attention to your dog’s body language, and give them a break whenever necessary. If you cannot be vigilant, make sure that your dog is left at home in a safe environment. Unfortunately, people can be cruel and crazy around this time of year. Please make sure to keep your dog on leash whenever outside the home, and inside whenever possible. Keep all candy out of the reach of your dog. Both the wrappers and their contents may become life threatening to your dog if ingested. If you do not have the time to desensitize your dog to the doorbell, you may need to consider crating your dog during the Trick or Treat hours for both their safety and the safety of those who come to your door.

Integrating Practice into Everyday Life In our training, we often hear that people simply do not have time to practice with their dogs. While setting aside time to spend one on one with your dog is ideal, and should be pursued whenever possible, we understand that sometimes life can be busy. We are, after all, human. Even though life is busy, your dog still needs repetition and consistency in order to develop the habits that you desire. Often people do not realize that the time spent with your dog, whether set aside or not, is time spent training. Why not integrate your practice into your daily routines so that you can make the most of your time and bond with your dog? There are lots of ways to do it. Here are just a few: SIT and DOWN: Sit and down commands should be practiced whenever you need your dog to stop moving and freeze into position. While challenging your dog to a long stay session during a set-aside practice time is one way to do it, another is having him or her practice her down and/or sit stays while you answer the door, read a magazine, or brush your teeth. Whenever your dog is moving around and you would rather them not be, replace the negative behavior with a positive one. PLACE: Working on Place can be easily accomplished while you watch television or check your email! Start with short place challenges during commercial breaks and then when your dog gets better at it, extend out to actual show segments. Put them on place while you start reading your email, see how many you can get through before your dog tries to get up! While snuggling with your dog during your downtime is often a relaxing time for many owners, this is a way to get in your practice so that when guests come, they can be just as relaxed. Don’t forget, if you don’t practice, your dog is not going to remember what to do when you need it to. WAITING : Even the simple acts of going through a doorway to take your dog out or feeding them are great opportunities for integrated practice. Have your dog do a sit/stay or a down/stay and wait at doorways. You should always go through first. Have them sit/stay or down/stay while you put down their food. Release them from their stays with a “you’re through”. This way they understand that you own the food and they are motivated to listen!

Even though life is busy, your dog still needs repetition and consistency in order to develop the habits that you desire. Often people do not realize that the time spent with your dog, whether set aside or not, is time spent training. Why not integrate your practice into your daily routines so that you can make the most of your time and bond with your dog? There are lots of ways to do it. Here are just a few: SIT and DOWN: Sit and down commands should be practiced whenever you need your dog to stop moving and freeze into position. While challenging your dog to a long stay session during a set-aside practice time is one way to do it, another is having him or her practice her down and/or sit stays while you answer the door, read a magazine, or brush your teeth. Whenever your dog is moving around and you would rather them not be, replace the negative behavior with a positive one. PLACE: Working on Place can be easily accomplished while you watch television or check your email! Start with short place challenges during commercial breaks and then when your dog gets better at it, extend out to actual show segments. Put them on place while you start reading your email, see how many you can get through before your dog tries to get up! While snuggling with your dog during your downtime is often a relaxing time for many owners, this is a way to get in your practice so that when guests come, they can be just as relaxed. Don’t forget, if you don’t practice, your dog is not going to remember what to do when you need it to. WAITING : Even the simple acts of going through a doorway to take your dog out or feeding them are great opportunities for integrated practice. Have your dog do a sit/stay or a down/stay and wait at doorways. You should always go through first. Have them sit/stay or down/stay while you put down their food. Release them from their stays with a “you’re through”. This way they understand that you own the food and they are motivated to listen!
