Challenging Puppy

Dear Cesar, We adopted Cassie, a 10 month-old Shar Pei/Pointer-mix, from a local shelter three months ago. She had a sweet temperament and was always excited. We figured “she’s still a puppy.” She was mouthing and jumping up a lot and needed lots of training, but she seemed to bond to me very quickly. We signed up for training class and continued with regular exercise. Mainly I walked her, but to drain energy more quickly, I took her to the dog park to play fetch. The first couple of times she was fine. Then on one visit, a dog showed

Introducing A Puppy To The Pack

In order for a puppy to grow up into a balanced dog, she needs to be socialized from early on so she can learn the rules of how to be a dog. Our best teachers for that job are… other adult dogs, but it’s not a good idea to toss a puppy in with the grown-ups and walk away. Andre Millan pays a visit to Dog Psychology Center trainer Todd Langston for a live demonstration of two adult dogs with very different temperaments meeting a puppy for the first time, and how they negotiate space, and teach the new dog

The Stages Of Puppy Growth

  Some of us, when we think of a puppy, imagine an adorably tiny dog that can barely open his eyes stumbling around as he explores the world. Others see a whirlwind of doggy energy that can’t keep still for a second because there are too many balls to chase, scents to smell, and things to pee on… and then roll in. There are two reasons for this discrepancy: Puppyhood isn’t something that lasts just a few weeks. Dogs don’t become adults until sometime between 1 and 2 years of age. Despite the fact that they go through a number

Keep It Clean For Healthy Dogs And Puppies

It might surprise you to learn that a mother dog nursing a litter is a meticulous housekeeper, but it’s true. Un-weaned puppies naturally do their business in the den, and their mother works constantly to keep it clean. By eliminating the mess and odors quickly, she trains the puppies to venture outside of the den when nature calls, as well as maintains a healthy environment and helps keep a clean home. As a pack leader, you should do the same for your pups and adult dogs. Not only is it good for them physically, it’s good for their minds. Consider

Arrivals Without Departures

Today is the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, which means that it’s the beginning of Advent. You may or may not have heard that term before, although you might know that this is when kids start opening up those calendars with the candy or toys hidden behind the little doors, one for each day leading up to Christmas. The term “advent” actually comes from the Latin word for arrival, and the holiday refers to expectation of the arrival of Jesus as an infant in Bethlehem — Christmas. But I’m going to be looking at it metaphorically today. Think about how
