  • How To Transition From One Dog Food to Another

Once you get the new food, for the first day just add a small amount in your fingertips, then a little bit more for the 2nd day. On the third day add 1/4 cup for each feedi…

  • Moving to a New Home While Having Dogs

    If you have the ability to have the dog stay with someone or take them to a doggie daycare, you will have more peace of mind and your dog will be having fun. It is best to have the dog stay away until you are moved into the new place and things are out of the boxes and somewhat in place. Of course it does not have to be perfect but there should be some order. Once you are somewhat settled and you get your dog, always have them on the leash. If you have a yard, walk them around the yard to p…

  • PLEASE DO NOT BUY A DOG THAT IS LESS THEN 8 WEEKS OLD!

    Hello everyone, this is very important news that has been really bothering me lately and has been a very big problem this year especially while I have been training puppies. Unfortunately, breeders are selling puppies way to young. There is no reason why puppies should leave their mom and littermates less than 8 weeks old. They learn so much from their mother and littermates. Not only are they selling the puppies to young, they put them in a crate and on an airplane in cargo. Their immune…

  • A Dog is like an Eternal Peter Pan

    “A dog is like an eternal Peter Pan, a child who never grows old and who therefore is always available to love and be loved.” Dogs are creatures of habit. They learn through repetition and consistency, doing it the same way every time. Dogs are social animals and they see you as their pack or family. They do not want to be excluded from everything that is going on with the family. Dogs don’t learn sentences. They learn one to two word commands by tone inflections. We speak to them like they u…

  • A Dog's Memory is Amazing!!!

    Dog Training And Memory!!! Many people don’t know that anything that happens to a dog in between the ages of 4 through 9 weeks of their lives is ingrained into their minds. Anything their mother does to them, they will remember. If they are unfortunately abused at an early age, they remember all the details. For example, if a tall man that always wears a hat abuses a dog, then every time the dog sees a tall man with a hat, they become very submissive and think they will get hurt. If there is …

  • SEPARATION ANXIETY IN DOGS

    When you get a new puppy or dog, it is understandable that you want to spend as much time with the dog as possible but that can cause more harm than good. When families take time off of work or have the ability to be with the dog at all times in the beginning, then their schedule changes and they have to leave the dog home, it can cause plenty of anxiety for the dog. Dogs are creatures of habit. Before you start getting ready to leave the house, put the dog in the crate, so they can not see…

  • How to Get Your Dogs Used to the Noises They Are Afraid Of

    HOW TO GET YOUR DOGS USED TO THE NOISES THEY ARE AFRAID OF There are so many sounds that we are used to hearing but dogs are petrified of. Some common noises are fireworks, sirens, infants crying, children playing and screaming, tools, grooming tools, and thunderstorms.
