How to Prevent Dog From Barking

Let’s face it – dogs bark. Some dogs bark for good reason and some do for apparently little or no reason and some do a little of both. Of course there are also certain breeds that are more prone to barking than others. The dog problem is not always the barking but the need for dogs to be quiet at certain times or when asked. I want to talk about the reasons dogs bark in order to help you prevent dog barking. Why dogs bark Dogs bark for a variety of reasons. They may be giving a warning to another

Are You Keeping Your Dog In Prison?

Wolves hunt as a pack every single day. They did it before dogs evolved and they still do it today. They do it every day, whether the hunt is successful or not — and some biologists have estimated that a wolf pack is only successful in the hunt 5% of the time. Now if a group of humans were this unsuccessful at something, they might take a break, try to figure out why they’re failing, and either change their methods or quit. Not so for wolves. The pack hunts every single day. A dog’s need to hunt While new research

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

Dog begging for food is one of the most common discipline issues that dog owners face. An unfortunate side effect of loving our dogs so much is that we would like to give them everything that they want.

With a little willpower and discipline on your part, though, begging can be one of the easiest behaviors to correct. Follow these simple tips to turn your hairy panhandler into a productive member of society once more! Do not give food to begging

Dog Park Problems Solved

When my rat terrier puppy first started going to the dog park, he had an incredible fascination with watching other dogs urinate. So much so that he’d stand there mesmerized as they peed and would return from playing with a yellow-stained head. It took Rocky about six times of getting peed on before he realized that he should probably give urinating dogs space to do their business. Upon conversing with fellow canine owners at my neighborhood dog park, I quickly learned that my adventures with Rocky and his yellow head were just the beginning of some of the laughable situations

4 Ways to Keep Your Dog’s Joints Healthy and Young

This article is brought to you by Vivamune™ Health Chews. Vibrant health made simple. I grew up with two dogs of very different breeds and saw both through to old age. Today, I live with Dewey, a black lab, pit bull pushing nine years. Even as a middle-aged guy, Dewey is remarkably high-energy and playful, but the signs of aging are apparent nonetheless. I want to prolong the best years of Dewey’s life, as most dog parents want to do for their dogs. One of the biggest challenges a dog faces in old age is joint stiffness and loss of

To Tell The Truth

Truth about Energy and Balance “Calm, assertive energy” is something that I talk about a lot, and it’s one of the most important habits you can develop in the quest to find a balanced relationship with your dog. When you’re calm, your dog is calm, and everything just goes better. Unless, of course, you like having a crazy, hyperactive dog — although I’m guessing that you don’t. But when it comes to finding balance, your energy is just one part of the puzzle. It’s also important to provide exercise, discipline, and affection, in that order, but these are all part

What Your Dog Is Waiting For

In a lot of the world, this time of year seems to be dedicated to eating. Sure, there are lots of occasions happening between now and 2017, but most of those apparently serve double duty, with a civil or religious celebration wrapped around a meal, or at least a lot of snacking. We have Halloween candy, the Thanksgiving feast, a seemingly endless parade of seasonal cookies, candy, and pies, and one holiday party after another. If you work in an office, brace yourselves for the candy bowls and gift baskets popping up everywhere — and for the extra pounds it

Have You Bugged Your Dog Today?

There’s a subject we’ve covered on my website multiple times, and it’s always controversial — the kind of story that starts heated discussions in the comments, with two very divided camps on the issue. No, we haven’t been doing politics! And while stories about pit bulls, breed-specific legislation, spay and neuter, and clothes for dogs always start a lively pro and con discussion, this particular subject seems to be very touchy with a lot of people and I think that I may be in the minority in my view. But, as has happened before, somebody finally took a look at
