Does Your Dog Need Obedience Training?

Not too long ago, it was a given that the only way to properly train a dog was to, in effect, beat the dog into submission. It was thought that until the dog had been broken mentally, it would not be responsive to commands. Fortunately, this prehistoric thinking has been significantly relegated to the past, but intelligent obedience training is still recommended for most dogs.

Anyone who owns a dog larger than they can comfortably pick up at need should provide obedience training. Smaller dogs can also benefit from training, but for dogs over 30 pounds it should be considered a necessity. Large dogs in the range of 50 or more pounds can cause serious problems – either to people or other pets.

Dogs have evolved from wild canines that live in a very structured society. Every wolf, coyote, or African hunting dog knows exactly where he or she stands in regards to the rest of the pack. This hierarchical structure keeps the group peaceful. As dogs have moved into human society, they have become part of a human pack, and must learn their place in each household.

Every living creature on earth has the desire to rise to the top, to become Number 1, and dogs are no exception. Without obedience training of some kind, most dogs will try to move to the alpha position in a home, taking over from the humans. The dog will protect the people, but it will also expect the humans to defer to it. This is a very undesirable situation that can lead to aggression not only to the immediate human pack, but to other humans as well. This is a potentially explosive situation when the dog involved is a large, strong breed such as German Shepherd.

The point of modern obedience training is not to produce a robot, but to help a dog understand its place in the home society, and to produce confidence. When obedience training is done with patience, positive reinforcement, understanding, and consistency, it will strengthen the bond between master and dog, and result in a dog that will be able to go more places and will probably remain in the home for its lifetime. Most dogs that wind up in shelters do so because their owners are unable to control them; these dogs often exhibit aggression.

A dog can receive obedience training either at home or in a class. Using a class for obedience training can be a good choice to provide socialization with other dogs and people. Shy dogs can often get over their shyness by participating in a group. Regularly scheduled sessions will help make sure that training continues, too.

The best time to start training is while the puppy is young, although obedience training an adult dog is relatively easy, too. The keywords to successful obedience training are positive reinforcement and patience. Hitting a puppy or dog when an incorrect response is given will result in a dog that develops fear of its owner. This dog is more likely to ignore commands in the future and may become neurotic.

When using positive reinforcement for obedience training, you will be rewarding good behavior with errors and praise and ignoring undesired behavior. It does take longer for positive reinforcement training to take effect, but it is permanent, unlike training that has been conducted using fear and pain. Keep sessions short and if either you or the dog show signs of boredom or aggravation, stop immediately and do something else.

The dog's breed will have some bearing on how well obedience training goes. Certain breeds such as Border Collies and Labrador Retrievers are very easy to train, while other breeds, such as Pekingese and Dalmatian are more difficult. Difficult breeds to train are not unnecessarily unintelligent; in most cases they are simply stubborn.

Small dogs are often the most difficult to obedience train for several reasons: they are often very stubborn, and they consider them to be above such things. When our French Bulldogs were puppies, we tried to give them some basic obedience training simply as a safety measure. All three pups learned the basic come, sit, stay, almost immediately. Two or three repetitions were enough for them to master the commands. However, after they did master them, they all refused to do them anymore. If you told them to come, they would sit or lie down and a command to stay directed in them tearing towards you.

Small dogs do have a different outlook than many larger breeds, and if you do decide you want to add one of these companions to your household, it would be best to accept that despite the dog's intelligence, it can be basically untrainable in some cases.

Five All Natural, Hot Weather Health Safety Tips For Your Pets

As a proud pet owner, most people naturally want the very best for their furry, four-legged friends. It is likely your emotional investment began the moment you, and your new found companion, looked into each others eyes for the first time.

If you happen to be a stickler in keeping high, physical health care standards for yourself and your family, then ensuring that your pet has a safe, healthy, and happy life is certainly going to become a top priority too. With a return to summer, which everyone enjoys, including our pets, it can also bring to mind some seasonal health concerns regarding our extended, family members.

This does not have to wreak havoc on your personal finances, however, as five important common sense strategies can head off several unnecessary, and expensive trips to your veterinarian. These natural approaches should leave everyone in the household feeling happier, especially your pet! And, they are economical in the long-term.

Safety Tip 1

Keep pets cool

Hot temperatures combined with high humidity interferes with an animal’s natural ability to pant, which is how they cool themselves. This kind of weather is very hard on your pet. Unlike humans, who can cool themselves by sweating through pores in the skin, canines and felines only have sweat glands in noses and paw pads. Hence, a dry nose is a warning sign of a feverish or dehydrated animal.

Always provide your pet with a daily, fresh water supply. This applies to any season, but it is especially important in the summer months. If your pet is recovering from surgery, illness, or has become severely dehydrated, there is even special electrolyte-enhanced water available for dogs. Search for those in larger pet or health food stores.

Your pet will be happier, and much more comfortable, being left at home on a shopping trip. If you feel you must take them out on a hot day, never leave them in a vehicle with the windows down, even for a few minutes.

Getting wet in a creek, lake, or child size wading pool can help keep your dog cool. Be mindful, though, to rinse off your dog’s fur after a swim in the ocean, or a chemically treated pool.

Long-haired animals need daily brushing or combing to avoid heat-trapping matting or tangling of coats. Regular hair cuts or trimmings during hot weather, can help keep pets cooler. Just be careful, if your doing it yourself though, don’t shave the animal. Skin that has never seen sunlight will burn easily!

Safety Tip 2

Pest control

Stinging, biting, and blood sucking insects can affect your pet’s health, happiness, and behavior. A bee sting can inflict as much pain and swelling on your pet as it can you. Pull stingers out with fingernails or tweezers. You can dab the affected area (except around the eyes) with a diluted solution of half apple cider vinegar or tea tree oil, water mix. Exception: do not use these disinfecting mixtures on a small dog, puppy, or cats.

When it comes to repelling, and protecting, your pet from common parasites like fleas, ticks, lice, mites, and mosquitoes, look for safe non-toxic products containing ‘neem’. Most of these products are a bottled liquid mixture. There are several creative ways of using them from mixing them up to use as a dip, mix in your dogs shampoo, or even soaking a cloth collar can repel the health hazards of external parasites, naturally.

Safety Tip 3

Exercise

Both owner and pet benefit, tremendously, from a mentally and physically active lifestyle. Regular physical interaction with your pet provides not just physical benefits, but emotional ones as well. All kinds of physical activity can be incorporated as game playing with your pet friend. It will promote healthy muscle stimulation, and sharpen cognitive mental functioning.

Just remember, in hot weather months, use the keep your pet cool rule. Schedule these types of activities in the cooler parts of the day.

Safety Tip 4

Control ear infections

Ear infections can be a common problem in the summer with long-eared dogs, or water loving ones. Most ear infections are caused by yeasty types of bacterias.

An ounce of prevention technique, that works rather in humans too, is mixing up a solution of equal parts of white vinegar and isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Store in a dropper bottle and dispense a few drops into each ear after water exposure to the ears. The alcohol helps dry out the ear canal, and the vinegar lowers the pH, making the inside of the ear a less than ideal environment for bacteria to thrive in.

Safety Tip 5

Improve Diet

Whether you wish to increase an older pet’s energy and vitality, get better control of internal (worms) or external parasites, or relieve problem allergies, all of these can be done from the inside out through diet improvement.

Powdered probiotic and enzyme supplements can be added to your pet’s food. There are several quality brands available, exclusively, for dogs and cats. Both, good bacteria and enzyme nutrition supplementation, help to strengthen your pet’s immune system and stimulate better digestion, assimilation, and elimination.

Most commercial brands of processed pet foods, either dry or canned, provide a minimal amount of basic nutrition, due to over processing or are missing many different nutrients entirely. The same is true if you are feeding your pet home prepared food. If you are going to feed your pet real food, it will be much better tolerated if it is fed raw. Raw meat, milk, or eggs is best.

Many alternative health care strategies that are available to humans, also exist for pet health. Health care specialties such as acupressure, massage, and spinal manipulation, that work well for people, can also help your pet, just search for a practitioner who specializes in animal therapy.

Several of these, seasonal, all-natural safety tips just make good common sense to be implementing on your pet year round. As a responsible pet owner, remember, your pet solely depends on you to keep them healthy, happy, and safe. And, now you know how to do this just a little bit better.

Dog Grooming, Tools, Tips, and Tricks

Grooming your dog is not an easy task. Depending on the breed of dog you have; one must consider the type of hair the dog has, the style that you wish, and how your pet acts when being groomed. I adopted a small breed, a Maltese, three years ago and I have groomed him myself and had him professionally groomed. He has gone from having long hair, like a show dog, to now having a “puppy cut”.

Becoming prepared before you begin dog grooming is essential. Also, consider the time allowed. If you are a beginner, this will be something you need a couple of hours to do. Below are a few things I have found helpful to get ready before hand, and what to do during the grooming process.

Having Proper Dog Grooming Tools

  • Good quality clippers – This is the most important of all tools you will need. Don’t go out and buy the cheapest ones you can get, here you truly get what you pay for. Also, make sure they come with different length or changeable blades. Plastic guards, as what you get with human hair clippers, simply don’t work (this is especially true with dog’s that don’t have an under coat).
  • Pin Brush – These are great for long-haired dogs and helpful when brushing out tangles and mats. Be sure they have a rubber base on the pins for flexibility, as it is easier for you and more comfortable for your dog.
  • Slicker Brush – Great for finishing your dog grooming session, giving your dog a great look.
  • Comb – For use on the face of your dog, this tool is a must. It’s easier to get around the eyes, nose, and mouth without injuring the dog like a wire pin brush could do.
  • Hair dryer – Good for drying long-haired dogs, but be sure to use a low warm setting as not to burn your dog. Also, always dry your dog’s hair before cutting and brushing.
  • Finishing Spray/Detangler – Depending on the breed of dog, you may end up with hair that is not laying down properly due to static electricity and a good finishing spray will give it the perfect ending touch.

Preparing The Dog for the Grooming Session.

  • Fully brush your dog before giving them a bath. This will make bathing easier and when using proper shampoos and conditioners your pet’s hair and skin will feel and look great.
  • Consider the shampoo you use. Many dogs are sensitive to the harsh chemicals in pet shampoos. Using all natural, oatmeal based, or hypoallergenic shampoos are the best.
  • Use conditioner. I have found that this is so helpful when brushing your dog during the drying process. The hair dries faster and is easier to brush.

A person to assist

  • Grooming the underside of the dog, inside of legs and arms, and grooming the sanitary areas is extremely difficult. If you get an assistant they can hold the dog in the air so this task so it can be done with ease.
  • Your assistant can talk to the dog, keeping it calm and distracting it while you are grooming.

Patience

  • Last and most importantly, take your time. Understand this is a stressful situation not only for you but for your pet as well. It’s important to not go fast and cut or injure your dog, and you will inevitably need to do a lot of clipping and touch up work to get the look you are trying to achieve.

It takes me about 2 1/2 hours even with all the proper tools and the aid of an assistant to groom out Maltese. As stated earlier, our dog gets a “puppy cut” and I will continue clipping and touching up areas even one to two days later if I see something I missed.

If case, you are interested, here are more titles with over 1,000 Google entry occurrences that did not make the top 101 list. They include group health professional, ins specialist, insurance marketing representative, health insurance adviser, ins representative, term life insurance specialist, mortgage life insurance agent, insurance marketing specialist, disability insurance broker, life ins agent, term life agent, senior market specialist, life investment adviser, MDRT insurance agent, and insurance saleswoman.

Should you want to get more attention on major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Ask, here are some tips. On the front of your website entry page, use the title and first line to put a more descriptive term about the services you provide. Rather than announcing “insurance agent for many products”, try this, “medical insurance professional and disability insurance specialist.” Both these titles only have about 5,000 competing entries, which could include 3,500 to 4,000 weak ones each. Now it depends on following the advice given, and internet search engine skills you possess. An internet searcher might now find you in the top 100 listings for each of the terms! On an “insurance agent” search, with well over 6,000,000 listings, it might take a 24/7 week to find you listed toward the end of the heap.
