Doorbell Barkers

Dear Cesar, I have three dogs that bark like crazy whenever the doorbell rings, and they have been a challenge. To correct them, we have been ringing the doorbell, then flipping them over and growling in their faces to let them know it is not the way they should act. Is there anything else I can do to stop them from barking at the doorbell? -JR Cesar’s Answer: First of all, this technique of flipping your dogs over is not appropriate for the type of training you’re trying to do.

4 Ways To Socialize Your Dog

Meeting people is never easy, but it’s even harder when you’re trying to find friends for both you and your dog. After all, it’s good for your four-legged pal to interact with members of his or her own species, but everyone has to get along. If it’s love at first site for the pooches but you don’t really get along with the owner, that’s going to be a pretty boring playdate for the humans. And it’s just as bad if you’re friendly with someone but the dogs spend the entire time barking and growling — or just have very different

Nail Clipping Tips

Do you hear that clicking sound when your dog walks on a hard surface? That means he’s overdue for a nail clipping. Keeping your dogs nails trimmed is a vital part of the dog-grooming process. This is particularly important because if they get too long, it can cause health problems, such as torn nails and even broken toes. For a lot of people, though, the process can be intimidating, especially if their dog doesn’t like having its paws touched or held. There’s also the risk of injury by cutting too far down. But it doesn’t have to be a daunting

Good And Bad Play Behavior

  I am a Cesar fan and have a question regarding dogs at ‘play’. My first obvious thought is that, if your dogs have energy to play, they’ve not had enough exercise’right?’ In any event, what types of play do you allow in your pack?

We adopted a rescue, Molly, around 8 months of age, which was in July 2007. She was emaciated, flea-bitten, and had a lampshade cord wrapped very tightly around her neck. She was so weak, she couldn’t stand and weighed around 14 lbs. She is now a very happy and healthy dog at about 26 lbs. I have been working with her to get her used to riding in our car. She shakes so badly and then throws up. I’ve given her Dramamine, and it doesn’t do anything. I took her today to get her nails trimmed (which I haven’t learned

5 Steps To Correct Inappropriate Dog Chewing

  By Dr. Kristy Conn Inappropriate chewing is a fairly common problem in young dogs and stems from the fact that puppies use their mouths as a means of exploring the world around them. Chewing is a normal behavior for puppies but becomes undesirable behavior when it is directed towards inappropriate objects such as your shoes, furniture, or even your hands and feet. If inappropriate chewing is not corrected then it can lead to wide scale destruction of personal property, medical problems and erosion of the human-animal bond. A dog’s deciduous teeth will erupt between three to eight weeks of
