How To Be Calm And Assertive

Dogs use constant energy to communicate. Energy is what I call beingness; it is who and what you are in every moment. Dogs don’t know each other by name, but by the energy they project and the activities they share. They know humans in the same way. As humans, we too are communicating with energy – whether we realize it or not. And, though we may attempt to persuade, explain, and rationalize all day long, these energy signals are the only messages getting across to our dogs. The first energy that a puppy experiences after birth is mom’s calm, assertive

As a conscientious dog owner, you work hard to fit their daily walks into your schedule.

How To Fit The Dog Walk Into Your Daily Schedule

Walking your dogs is important for a variety of reasons: It provides them with much-needed exercise that keeps them healthy and relieves excess energy so they don’t cause problems around the house. It stimulates their brain because there are so many new smells, sights, and sounds to experience. It gives you a fantastic opportunity to train your dog and make sure that they recognize you as the Pack Leader. And, of course, it allows them to go to the bathroom. Despite all of these benefits, many people only walk their dogs intermittently — or not at all — because they

You just got your new puppy a few days ago, and you’re itching to take the little guy out and show him off around the neighborhood. No big deal, right? You just need to get a leash and a collar and head out the door with him in tow. Not so fast.

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

Go The Distance! Hiking With Your Dog

John Muir said “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks,” I couldn’t agree more. Hiking with the pack is one of my favorite things to do. The level of happiness I feel on those mornings is beyond a ten! I feel really relaxed and have absolute silence within me. The only sounds are those of the nature around me and the hard breathing of the dogs. I love that sound. You hear and feel everyone and everything when your mind is silent. On the days I hike with the pack, we typically go early –

How To Help Our Dogs Achieve Balance

Many of my clients call their dog their soul mate or their baby, but the dog tears up the furniture and drags them all over the neighborhood on a walk. The client pleads with the dog to behave, cajoles the dog, and offers her treats with no change in the dog’s behavior. Why? Dogs are animals, and they respond to calm-assertive leadership—not emotional arguments or negotiations. If you have a dog in your life, it is important to understand how to allow her to live in a balanced way and achieve a healthy state of mind. Dogs have found themselves

The Importance Of Giving Your Dog Affection

By Cesar Millan Love is one of the greatest gifts we can share with our dogs. Dogs are affectionate animals. Touch means a lot to them, both in their natural world and when they live with us. However, affection that hasn’t been earned and is shared at the wrong time can be detrimental to a dog. Here are a few of my thoughts on sharing affection. Give affection – but at the right time! Remember anytime you give affection, you reinforce the behavior preceding it. Reward stability. Share your love when your dog is in a calm-submissive state. Share affection
