6 Odd Things That Puppies Do

Dogs are odd. You know this, and we know this. But if you really want to see some odd behaviors, watch a puppy for a day or two. There are all kinds of funny things puppies do without even realizing it. Some of these behaviors can be maddening, some hilarious, but they’re all head-scratching. Out-of-water paddling When you put a dog in the water, she will automatically start paddling her legs to swim. It’s something they all do, and it’s easy to see why — they’re trying not to drown!

Puppy Crate Training Made Easy

There are many reasons you might want to crate train your new puppy. A crate can be invaluable while you are potty-training or teaching your dog the rules of the house, it’s a great way to transport your four-legged friend, and it can serve as a safe place for your pup to escape to once he comes to accept it as his space. Unfortunately, even though dogs are den animals and they like having an area that’s all theirs, most won’t automatically take to crates — and your pup can even come to fear them if you don’t handle crate

Las Etapas Del Crecimiento Canino

Algunos de nosotros cuando pensamos en un cachorro, imaginamos un perrito adorable que apenas puede abrir los ojos al dar tumbos mientras explora el mundo. Otros ven un perro que es un torbellino de energía que no puede mantenerse quieto un segundo porque hay muchas pelotas para perseguir, perfumes para oler y cosas adonde hacer pis y luego acostarse arriba.   Hay dos razones para esta discrepancia. La etapa de cachorro no es algo que dura sólo unas pocas semanas y los cachorros no se conviertan a adultos hasta algún momento entre 1 y 2 años de edad. A pesar

Puppy Love: Do Dogs Have Emotions?

There’s no doubt in my mind that dogs have emotions. They feel joy after a job well done. They feel sad when a pack member passes away. And they feel love for their family members – their pack. However, it’s important to remember that those emotions are different from our own. The feelings that dogs experience aren’t connected to complex thoughts. They don’t have ulterior motives or doubt. Their emotions are pure and honest. Your dog isn’t lying to you when he communicates that he loves you. The more you fulfill your dog’s needs, the more this connection will develop

Puppies And Exercise: How Much Is Too Much?

By Cesar Millan I’m often asked, “Is there such a thing as TOO much exercise for a puppy?” My feeling is that as long as you are careful and attentive to your puppy, the puppy is the best one to tell you what is too much exercise. Puppies often do not have enough muscle tone to take long runs, but there are always exceptions. Most puppies will tell you when they have hit their limit, and it is important to resist pushing them beyond this point. Even if your puppy wants to keep exercising and running, some things you should

Puppy Is Too Distracted On The Walk

Dear Cesar, I have a nine-month-old, 100 lb puppy who I walk every single day for the amount of time you recommend in your new book. My problem is he is getting to know a lot of people in my neighborhood and now every time I pass someone I know on a walk, he insists on stopping and walking with them and refuses to go at my pace… even if I start to run ahead. I have tried every style of collar I can find, including choke and pinch collars, and the upside-down leash that I’ve seen you use many
