Dogs and people have been working together to survive and thrive for thousands of years. While we might not know exactly why or how this relationship started, we sure are happy it did! As humans and dogs learned to communicate with each other, people then began to guide their dogs’ behavior. This helped the two diverse species live and work together. Today we call that process training and it’s still very important.
Woo hoo! We’re going to the dog park! Dogs and Pawrents alike love this poochie paradise. But the dog park is more than just fun and games…it’s about proper socialization. It’s important for dogs of all ages, because it impacts the way they will react to other dogs and people for the rest of their lives. The dog park is the ideal place to give your dog some opportunities for socialization because it’s an enclosed and controlled environment.
It’s October, so that means Trick or Treating is on the mind! While we’re all busy getting our Halloween costumes set we can’t help but think it’s also a great time to practice some basic tricks and commands with your furry four-legged friends.
Treats come in all shapes and sizes. Some kinds are fantastic for an everyday snack and others are great specifically for training.
It is never too early or too late to begin working with your pup. Obedience training helps you bond and open up a clear line of communication between you and your furry friend.
Potty training a puppy — and cleaning up the inevitable accidents — is one of the most frustrating aspects of raising a young dog. Knowing the right approaches to take, and the wrong ones to avoid, can make the process much easier for both you and your pup.
