Alpha Lifts – This is a great way

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:02 pm

Alpha Lifts – This is a great way to start getting puppy to trust and give in to the owners authority. This is not as dominate as an alpha rollover yet it is a smaller version of the concept of the dog losing some control over there freedom. The owner would stand over their dog facing the same direction of the dog. With one leg on each side of the dog. Then using both hands the owner reaches under the dogs chest and lifts the dogs front legs off the ground. Allowing the dogs front legs to very lightly touch the ground. This will tempt the dog to try and walk away, however they can not and learn to trust in the fact that the owner will release them once they no longer try to move. Then the owner can do the same thing with all four feet off the ground, same As above. This is a great exercise for owners to use to gain trust and slight dominance over their dogs. Mark Thompson

OUTSIDE OF REALITY As we welcome the spring,

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:03 pm

OUTSIDE OF REALITY As we welcome the spring, we look forward to warmer weather and more time outside. For dog owners, many feel that this is a time that the dog can experience more freedom. If done correctly, this can be a great experience. If not done correctly, mischief and mayhem can ensue. Here are some helpful hints to make your spring less stressful: Boredom can lead to big problems. If you leave your dog outside without helping them to release their physical and mental energies beforehand, you may find that they will become creative. Their projects can range from a small hole to a knocking over your prized barbeque to tearing down or redecorating your deck and lawn furniture. Alone time outside does not replace walking and heeling practice. It is not an automatic relief of stored up energy, at least not in a consistently positive manner. A nap underneath a tree outside will only result when the dog is exhausted. Make sure to not put your dog in a position to express their creative energies in a way that would not make you proud. A watched dog is a better dog. Do not leave your dog in your yard unsupervised, especially if you expect them to behave. If regularly attended, the dog will understand that outside is just like inside: you are the leader and they need to listen accordingly. New sights, new sounds, looser dirt, small animals beginning their springtime frolic, and increased daily sunlight are all invitations for a grand canine adventure. If you would rather your dog not partake in these activities, you need to be consistent with your training. Remember, a long line (30 feet) can give your dog an increased area to play while remaining able to be consistent with your corrections. Even if your dog is reliably off leash trained, it may take a couple of days to remind them how to behave in their changed environment. Without a leash, this becomes much more difficult. Do not use a remote collar without proper training. Canine-proof your yard as much as possible. Too much time outdoors unattended can result in housebreaking issues. If a dog never has to ask to go outside, then it never will. Designate one area of the yard for bathroom activities, and make sure that they have enough time indoors to remember to hold it when they are not in their “rest” area. Dogs are creatures of habit. Do not assume that your dog will be happy simply because it is outside. Banishing them to the great outdoors while you are away can create stress. Many dogs would be happier to remain surrounded by the familiar sights and sounds indoors that can remind them of their place in your home especially if you have already proofed your dog for inside unattended time. If they are used to being in a crate, it is most likely relaxing for them to remain in their routine.

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.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:03 pm

Walking Your Dog in 2009 If you are going to walk your dog, why not do it in a beautiful place? Why not change your routine and try different routes? Remember, it’s not only you that will be bored if the walk is always the same! Check out the locations below to upgrade your walks in 2009! Trail Walking: The Lowcountry has many walking trails available to you and your dog. Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission offers you several options where trails through the woods are well marked, and welcome to the canine members of our community. Many of these trails are even paved! Your dog will enjoy the experience of the new smells and sounds, the new animals, and new sites just as much as you! Would you like an added challenge? Stop every so often and have your dog do an autosit. See how long you can sit still and just enjoy your moment. When the trail is wide, let your dog have some extra leash and go with a control walk. Where they narrow, call them in for a heel! By the end, you’ll both be more relaxed and ready to go home for a quiet evening. Beach Walking: Many of our beaches allow dogs to be walked on leash. Some of them even have off leash hours! Why not take your dog to enjoy the coastline with you? Work on your control walk in the dunes to allow your dog to enjoy the feel of the loose sand between their toes. Work on heel in the packed sand. How close were you really keeping your dog? Turn around. Your footprints will tell you. Try to keep your dog within the width of a hand. Each time you try, remember to praise your dog when they do a good job! City Walking: Why not take your dog on a walk in the city? Each of the local towns and cities offer their own charm. You can explore their downtown areas with your four-legged friend. Try working on your autosit at street corners, and down stays while pausing on park benches. Downtown Charleston itself offers Battery Park with its views of both Rainbow Row and the harbor! Waterfront Park offers a seaside pier with swings to sit on to rest. Hampton Park has beautiful gazebos, shaded areas, and the paddock for the city police. Many local restaurants offer canine friendly eating, and many neighborhood parks offer proper canine clean up materials! If you would like to try something new, why not let your dog carry your water bottle, a ball, and other necessary goodies in a canine backpack? This adds to the physical and mental challenge to your dog while freeing your hands for easier leash work!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:00 pm

Alpha Lifts – This is a great way to start getting puppy to trust and give in to the owners authority. This is not as dominate as an alpha rollover yet it is a smaller version of the concept of the dog losing some control over there freedom. The owner would stand over their dog facing the same direction of the dog. With one leg on each side of the dog. Then using both hands the owner reaches under the dogs chest and lifts the dogs front legs off the ground. Allowing the dogs front legs to very lightly touch the ground. This will tempt the dog to try and walk away, however they can not and learn to trust in the fact that the owner will release them once they no longer try to move. Then the owner can do the same thing with all four feet off the ground, same As above. This is a great exercise for owners to use to gain trust and slight dominance over their dogs. Mark Thompson

FOURTH OF JULY Fireworks are a fact of

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:02 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 ‘just a pet’ or family?
According to Stuff.co.nz , the humanist relationship is where your dog is more or less a person for the owner – they dress them up, treat it like a child and often talk to them. Any criticism of weight or shape is considered offensive.

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.

Deaf Dog Remote Vibrating Collar Deaf Dog Remote

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. They have never felt something like it before. So I like to hold the remote collar in my hand and lightly hold the collar against the dog and activate the collar when the dog feels the vibration give the dog a treat. After doing this until the dog starts to expect the treat ..then and only then put the collar on the dog. Then start to use the collar then treat…collar then treat…collar then treat. Then start using the collar to mark behavior I like to start with the look command. When the dog looks at your face remote and treat. The remote I like is the 175ncp dogtra collar http://betterdog.com/Products/dogtra.htm Are about 175.00 and work well…
