MANAGING THE MUD So you are ready to

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:04 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.

Walking Your Dog in 2009 If you are

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:02 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!

INTRODUCTION TO HOUSEBREAKING Dogs are descendants of wild

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:02 pm

INTRODUCTION TO HOUSEBREAKING Dogs are descendants of wild wolves, and although they are now domesticated, dogs and wolves still share many basic instincts. As young pups, both wild and domestic dogs are instinctively clean. Even in the wild, wolves are very reluctant to relieve themselves in or near their den. THE DEN: Wild and domestic dogs will typically establish a den. A den is a small area, normally with one opening, in which they feel safe and secure. Dogs spend lots of time in their dens: they will eat, sleep, play and whelp their puppies in there. Thus, a healthy dog will not relieve himself in his den. SCHEDULE: Your training instructor will custom design a feeding schedule for your dog. This will help you coordinate your dogs need to relieve himself with your schedule. To succeed in housebreaking your dog, it is critical that you adhere to your schedule. RELIEF STATION: You must establish a “relief station” that your dog can easily recognize. For example, you can create a 20×20 area marked by pine cones. Or if you have a natural area you’d like the dog to use, you may designate that his relief station. CORRECTION: Dogs will only learn from your correction if you catch them “red- handed”. If you don’t catch them in the act, you’re wasting your time correcting them. WATCH OR CONFINEMENT WATCH: Since after-the-fact corrections are not effective, it is sometimes necessary to watch your dog at all times. WATCH makes this practical. Your dog will be on his leash and by your side . This allows you to move about the house, catching your dog in the act of relieving himself. You will then be able to correct him — effectively — on the spot. Another benefit of the WATCH mode is that in forcing your dog to constantly follow your movements, you are asserting your leadership and ensuring his loyalty. CONFINEMENT: Achieves two goals: first, it establishes a den for your dog. Second, it forces your dog to rely on his instinctive desire NOT to soil his den. If your dog relieves himself in the den, he’ll quickly find this distasteful. He will learn to wait until being released from confinement to take care of his business. If, however, you do find that your dog has relieved himself in his den, leave him with the mess for 15 minutes. You want this behavior to have negative consequences for your dog. WATCH/CONFINEMENT procedures will be effective only if your housebreaking schedule is followed! PLEASE remember: it is very important to fill out your housebreaking logs completely.

BANISHING BEGGING You have made a wonderful meal

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:02 pm

BANISHING BEGGING You have made a wonderful meal and you have invited over friends. You gather around the table and soak in the sights and smells of the prepared meal and look forward to spending your time together. Then you realize that you are not the only one who appreciates the event. Your dog has arrived and is staring, pawing, and whining in a full theatrical production hoping to be paid in food. Begging is not a reality that most dog owners enjoy, and is appreciated by fewer guests. What if your dog does not beg for food, but instead begs for your attention? Why do dogs beg at all? How do you make them stop? Dogs beg because they are either looking for food, rank, or attention. Dogs who beg for food generally get what they want. To resolve this type of beggar you need to be sure that your dog never receives food during human food times. This means that you can never reward your dog with a treat at the table or during food preparation. Put the scraps off to the side and give it to your dog during its regular feeding times, in their bowl, if you must, but never give it to them during human food events. Never means never. Dogs are persistent and even a 1% chance will be worth pursuing. You will lose ground if anyone feeds the dog during their begging periods. In the dog world, the order in which the animals eat is an indication of their rank within the pack. Therefore, sometimes begging is a challenge for position within the family. The most powerful dogs eat first and the lowest ranking dog eats last. When a dog gets rewarded for begging, they eat at the same time, or before someone else, and therefore move up the leadership ladder. The rightful position of a canine companion is below all of the family members. Make sure that your dog does not eat during or before anyone in the household. Feed the dog in its own bowl, away from the dinner table, after the meal to maintain the proper balance in your family’s hierarchy. Dogs who beg for attention exhibit the same whining, crying, and pawing behaviors, but, instead of food, pursue interaction. In order to reverse these behaviors, you need to avoid giving your dog attention during these times. Whenever they begin to act out, ignore them completely. No eye contact, no verbal reactions, no touching. If you respond during their tantrum, the dog will achieve the attention it is desires. Negative attention is still attention. Resume interaction when the dog stops its negative behavior. The dog will realize that it is only positive behavior that receives their desired outcome. Overcome the possible guilt that can come from ignoring the begging by giving your dog some of your quality time when they are doing the right thing, so that they know that they do not need to beg in the first place.

HEEL COMMAND c Begin with your dog in

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:03 pm

HEEL COMMAND c Begin with your dog in a SIT/STAY on your left side, both of you facing forward. Step forward with your left foot, as you say “_________, HEEL.” (command tone) Patting your left hip while praising will encourage your dog to remain at your side. c Continue walking at a moderate pace. As your dog moves out of the HEEL position, use a quick SNAP AND RELEASE in the opposite direction, as you say “NO!” (correction tone) Repeat the HEEL command (command tone) as you encourage your dog with praise. c Make it a challenge for your dog to stay by your side by changing directions rapidly without warning, and by changing your speed from very slow to a brisk walk. c When practicing the HEEL command, always begin and end with your dog in a SIT/STAY position at your left side. . c The HEEL command is one of the most difficult for your dog to master. For this reason, it is crucial that you practice every day. However, limit your practice sessions to 2 minute spurts for the first week, gradually increasing the time to 8-10 minutes. Here’s a tip for practice: try point-to-point heeling. Pick an object, like a mailbox or fire hydrant. Walk your dog in HEEL directly toward that object. Then turn about-face, and repeat the procedure with a different object. This will help you teach him to move forward in a straight line, without veering or pulling. As always, remember to praise your dog — and make it fun!

Family Pet & Behavior “Basic Obedience” Control Walking-

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:04 pm

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
