Dog Training, Dog Behaviour, The Crate

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, Antisocial Dog Behaviour

A sign that a dog is antisocial about other dogs, is that he or she is uncomfortable about being sniffed at the rear end.
Think of the refusal to rear end sniff as the equivalent of the snub of the hand shake in human interaction - it’s quite a big deal!

Dog Behaviour and Body Language, Children, Dog Safety & Education,

Many children I come across say a friendly dog has a wagging tail but a tail wag does not always mean a friendly dog…
When a dogs tail is wagging up ’stiff like a board’ (almost ‘ping ping ping’) instead of ‘flowing like a wave,’ this is not a good, friendly sign!
Education is key (I also offer free dog safety & education talks to schools within my business area)

Do you have a small dog type (an adult)?
I would still recommend two twenty minute walks per day.
As well as being for exercise, the walk is enriching and stimulating for your dog, like going for the ‘hunt.’
There is more stimulation (different sights, smells etc.) when you break up the day with two walks and this also burns more energy than a single big, less intense one. [Read More…]

Dog Behaviour, Dog Training, Dog Chasing!

Cars -
It can be unfortunate, cars run away swiftly and allow the perfect chance for a good fast chase for your dog!

Chasing can become quite the obsession - Think cats, fixation on torch lights etc. Your dog can become more interested in chasing than in actually catching the object. [Read More…]
