Help your dogs to get along using this exercise

 

If you have more than one dog, chances are that you’ve noticed that as they age and mature or become more or less physically fit, their behavior and their relationship changes over time.

Sometimes your dogs may stop getting along, which can be frustrating, scary and even get beyond the point of repair. This is common when one of your dogs reaches social maturity somewhere around 2 1/2 – 3 years old.

The sooner you address the issue, the better.

Watch this video where I demonstrate an exercise you can do and adapt to your own dogs.

Just remember safety first! For one, make sure you and your dogs are safe around each other with food. Also, make sure you are safe. You may need to start with just one dog and work on it without the other dog around. Also, you can adapt this exercise and do it inside crates, or behind gates.

If you have any concerns, it’s best to consult a local professional first.

Stop barking at the TV!

The pace of the music speeds up, you know what’s around the corner and you want to scream and warn the girl on TV! You are on the edge of your seat when…

 

…your dog starts barking. UGHHHHHHH  You just missed the most important scene and even though you can rewind… the moment you’ve been waiting for is ruined.

 

Or that DANG commercial with the doorbell comes on again and you brace for the incessant barking once again. Or how about that TOUCHDOWN!!! Fun but suddently your dog is off the chain barking. Grrr…

Your stress level is now up and you can’t relax. That’s not what you want after you settle in to watch your favorite program after a long day or turn on your favorite team.

The first step to stop leash pulling

When your dog pulls on the leash, it’s not only annoying, it can be a safety hazard. Being pulled, even by a small dog can take you off balance and before you know it, you are on the ground!

It happened to me once when my puppy pulled me forward and I tripped on a rock. My knees, wrist and elbow healed but my FitBit still has a scratch on the face. Good reminder to watch where I’m going as well as another reinforcer to keep on training.

So what’s a great first step to stop leash pulling? Start training before you ever leave the house!

Stay safe and get started right before you ever leave the house.

I was very emotional yesterday as I read article after article from major news outlets about the huge number of dogs being returned. Just google “pandemic puppies returned”.

Are you one of them? Are you weary of taking care of your puppy or dog?

Maybe your dog can’t be trusted at home and has so so so many needs but your life is changing. Maybe you’ve been called back to work or your activities are starting back up and you just don’t know what to do about your puppy. What else can you do?
