Have a ‘pully’ dog?
It is not a requirement of mine that a dog must walk on your left hand side and that you should keep a short lead/leash.
I’m happy using extendable leads when walking dogs. [Read More…]

Dog Training, Dog Behaviour, The 'Crate' ~/?x=entry:entry181005-063624 2018-10-05T06:36:24+00:00 2018-10-05T06:36:24+00:00

The Crate -
The piece of equipment known as a ‘Crate’ is not a cruel cage. It is a hugely beneficial training tool for your pup and adult dog.
The crate provides a sense of security for all stages of life (so should not be dispensed with once your pup matures). [Read More…]

Dog Behaviour, The Walk ~/?x=entry:entry180928-155359 2018-09-28T15:53:59+00:00 2018-09-28T15:53:59+00:00

Dog Training, Repetition of Command? ~/?x=entry:entry180915-041241 2018-09-15T04:12:41+00:00 2018-09-15T04:12:41+00:00

If your dog does not initially respond to a command, do not repeat the same command again and again (unless for the recall or stay). This sends the message that 2-3 repetitions is what the command consists of (You must be patient, you can say your dogs name, but then wait). Also, we can call it nagging for dogs as well ;-) Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant, Dogs Best Friend.
