Dog Trainers

Too many dogs are given up after their normal, easily modifiable behaviors are allowed to become problems. But it doesn’t have to be this way. To prevent your dog from becoming a sad statistic, take your dog–and your family–to a professional dog training class. A good training class is a fun, social activity that helps your dog become a well-behaved, safe, and valued family member.

Life is a Game – Playful tips for daily bonding with your dog

Remember when playing with your dog was a fun activity that you made you late for dinner? Just because you grew up doesn’t mean that you have to act old. Make time to play with your dog every day and experience the child-like joy that bonding with your dog through play will bring you. Play hide and seek with your dog’s favorite toys or small treats. This game may start with teaching your dog how to sit and stay. Start by having him sit and stay while you place a favorite toy (squeaky ones are a favorite in our house) where he can see it, but away from him (like across the room). Use your release word (ours is “OK”) and let him go fetch the toy, making sure to allow enough time to celebrate the reward of waiting patiently, by letting him dance around with his toy in his…

The Importance of Routine for Dogs

When we lost our almost 19-year old American Eskimo, Kandi, several things became apparent in our pack. Because of her declining health during the last 5 years of her life, attending to the daily needs of an aging dog began to create sets of ritualistic behavior for my entire family.

After her passing, much of the need to carry out our daily routines stopped. While we all mourned the loss of Kandi, our other 3 dogs – in some ways – were even more deeply affected. For years, before bed and first thing in the morning, I had to carry Kandi down the steps so that she could go outside. She also got a "treat" every night for her daily medications and I would…

It’s All in Your Face! How Dogs Can Read Us

A DogGeek.com exclusive by Teresa Barker Have you ever been told, “You look sad?” Well, it’s not just your friends who can see it on your face, your pooch knows too! We’ve all felt that our dogs can sense what kind of mood we are in, but now one of the ways in which they determine this has been proven. A study performed by Dr. Kin Guo of the University of Lincoln in the UK has found that dogs really can read our facial expressions. The “left-gaze bias” Dogs, humans, and even monkeys, exhibit a behavior called “left-gaze bias” when they encounter faces. It has been proven that dogs, especially, use this assessment process when they encounter human faces. In his studies, Dr. Guo presented the dogs in his study with images of dog faces, human faces, monkey faces, and inanimate objects. When human faces were present, dogs used what…
