Dog Tips 101- Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Are you having problems with your dog digging, using potty in the house, or barking at visitors? Well we have some tips for you!

If your dog loves to dig at the carpet in your home or in the grass outside, he's showing he wants attention. So give it to him! Once your dog begins that behavior, give him a command such as sit and stay. If he begins this behavior again, redirect his attention to something else. Keep repeating these steps for 2-4 minutes and he should get the hang of it every single time he begins to dig. It may take a while, so be patient with him! :)

If your dog is constantly having accidents in the house, make sure to carry treats with you as soon as he goes potty outside. If he doesn't go potty outside, put him in the crate for 45 minutes, take him back out and wait until he pees. This isn't to punish him, it just is consistent for you to do so your dog understands they need to go potty outside. Once he does go potty outside, praise him and give him a treat!

Barking at visitors exhibits stressed behavior from your dog. They are unsure or confused about who the leader is and they become stressed out about it. We have found that going back to simple and basic commands and reviewing them while extending the time spent in a sit or down stay improvespatience, calm, and clarity for the dog and human. 

We suggest taking 3-5 minutes about 5-10 times a day and within that time pick one command and practice it with your dog. When your dog gets the stay command, you will need to gradually increase the time to increase your dog's patience and ability to hold the stay. We suggest practicing daily for at least a week as a refresher and to reinforce your standing as the leader. Remember to always praise your dog for their effort, be consistent, calm and clear. 

Another area we focus on is walking. Believe it or not taking your dog for a walk and having your dog walk in sync with you will be one of the most valuable and simple ways in which to assist your dog in releasing the stress over who is the leader. By teaching your dog to walk in sync with you, you will be establishing your authentic leadership and allowing your dog to learn to harness their own energy. This is crucial to assist your dog in the situation of excessive barking. 

And of course, any reward should involve one of our antlers as they will keep your dog occupied for hours! :)

How to Show Your Dog Love This Valentine's Day - Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Happy Almost Valentine's Day pet owners! As we all know, Valentine's Day is a special day to show your unconditional love towards your loved ones, including your four-legged friends. We are to show them love every single day, but Valentine's Day is your excuse to spoil them! 

Start the morning off by baking them some "pupcakes". You can find special pupcake ingredients online that are safe for your pooch to eat. Afterwards, take them to the dog park and let them play with other furry friends so they can get all worn out. Head back to the house afterwards so you can both cuddle up in front of the fireplace and take a quick snooze. As soon as you're both up, it's time to open gifts! Treat your dog to a special gift... an elk antler! They will be occupied for the next couple of hours, so find some time of your own to do your own thing around the house while your pup enjoys their treat!

You can even incorporate your plans with your pup's treat eating plans at this time, because they won't disturb you while they're trying to get to the nutrient-filled center of the elk antler

As the day comes to an end, all love does not have to seize as you guys can cuddle up in bed for some end of the night Valentine's Day cuddles.
