Pet Costumes

I imagine that there should be a piece on Animal Planet, the History Channel, et al, that needs a new angle: perhaps to uncover the world's most astounding, vicious, and dangerous dogs. Training sessions are a great way for these high energy dogs to use up their extra energy and simply to enjoy themselves. None of our dogs have ever been chewers (thank goodness!), but Tenor was the one that showed some early tendencies toward chewing. From a behavior perspective, this is a perfect example of the positive consequences rendered from rewarding behaviors you like in your dog as they occur. People relate to cute little puppies, even if they are not a dog lover, puppies are just irresistible. If you have a dog or did at one time, you know what it is like coming home from a hard days work.

If you will be having inside visitors for the evening, remind your guests not to give your pet any candy no matter how cute they think he or she is. Tell them of the health risks involved with candy and pets. The distinct clips of Poodles make them one of the most recognizable dogs in the world. It is not uncommon for a toy Poodle to be timid and high strung, so owners need to make an effort to teach them not to snap when they are startled or teased. A toy Poodle is therefore a great dog for families with older children who understand how to be considerate of dogs.

If your dogs are anything like mine, they love digging through their precious pile and bringing out their beloved toys one by one, leaving a lovely scattered array of stuffed squirrels and squeaky balls all over your living room floor. Teaching your dog to give their paw for a handshake is a pretty standard trick that's easy to teach. The next part is getting your dog to leave their paw for a quick nail trim, which can be a struggle for many pups. The trick with this one is to take it slow, and incrementally adjust your dogs to getting their nails clipped, buffed, and painted (okay, maybe not the last one).

Your dog should be able to go in and out (or weave) through a series of poles in a dog agility training course. Using the command weave" walk your dog through the poles with the first pole passing your dog's left shoulder. Position your dog facing down the pole line and holding a treat in your hand, lead your dog through the poles again ,but instead of you walking through the poles, make sure your dog only weaves through the poles. If needed, lead your dog by holding onto their collar or a short leash to make sure they are properly weaving in and out of the pole course.

Keep repeating these steps until your dog raises his foot automatically every time you give the command. If your dog needs a little encouragement to lift his foot off the ground, gently tap the inside of his knee with your finger until he bends his leg. Tricks?…..we have dogs that can unlock and open kennel doors, and all of the dog gates in the house have had to be modified as they had figured them out in days. There's one big mistake this article makes: you should always say the command WHEN the dog is doing it, not before. Handlers use several tricks and put them together as a routine, then add music.

Sophie's owner Joanne Pearce, who works dog training at the University of Toronto, discovered their trick when she was blowing up yellow balloons for a lab at the school's Scarborough campus. I don't have a dog, so I invited all the people in Scarborough to come dog training and bring their dogs so we could have a really good party and that's what we did today," De Baeremaeker said.
