Obedience training helps your pet learn his role in your family and in the world. It will teach him the skills he needs to interact with other dogs and with the people inside and outside your home. Puppy training is the first step to teaching healthy behaviors and avoiding negative ones. Often, dogs start their training by learning simple commands, such as "sit" and "stay," though later on they may be trained in more specific ways, such as how to stay in a crate without whining or how to sit patiently without begging while the family eats dinner.

The best part of training your puppy at home is that you can personalize your efforts to your dog and your lifestyle. There's no right or wrong skills you should start with. The most important part is teaching the skills your dog needs to be a good listener and follow your directions.

Recently, I had a client who's dog's teeth were covered in her hair.  It was tangled around her teeth pushing back gums and causing her pain.  Please, make sure your checking your dogs teeth.  Sore gums, bad teeth, and even hair caught in them can cause your dog all kinds of health as well as behavioral issues.

We still find lots of posts on facebook about missing or found pets.  Most of these are probably due to thunder storms or fireworks.  Please if you know there's going to be anything going on keep your dog in the house and possibly crate them to be safe.  Many dogs have fear of loud noises and when they run they may not find their way back home.  Keep your pets safe during these events.

If your dog is protective of you around other dogs and people, your dog may not see you as the pack leader.  They need to feel safe to be calm.  If you have this problem we can help.  Call us today.

It's hot out there.  Dog's don't sweat, they pant to cool off.  They can get heat exhaustion very fast.  Keep them cool, and provide plenty of water.  Have a wonderful day.

Patience is what you need when training an unruly or difficult breed of dog.  It may take a little longer, but they will get it.  Some breeds are people pleasers.  Some breeds just plain have a mind of their own and will listen only when they want to.  Don't give up.  He or she is just as much apart of your family as your spouse or children.  Sometimes you just have to think like a dog.  I know easier said than done.  Well,  that's what we're here for.  Don't forget, we're here to help!  Have a great day.

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a bag of dog food?  All dog food companies have to list the ingredients from most to least in the formula.  Make sure your food starts with a meat meal.  If it starts with wheat, soy, or corn, then you can bet your feed is made up of mostly that ingredient.  They are the biggest allergens in many dogs. 

Be careful of meat byproducts and byproduct meals as well.  These can contain things that aren't digestible and just used as a filler.  Example: chicken feathers.  Be proactive in your dog food as well as your own.  Check the labels.
