Got a dog crate that's collecting dust? Dogs crossing wants it! Old, new, large or small.
Whose your daddy?! Are you your dogs #1? Well duh! Ok, let me ask... are you his/her #1 at the beach or dog park? If you answer with some hesitation or with a 'sometimes' or 'depends' to me that is not good enough. What if that 'sometimes' leads to your dog running across a busy road, being a victim of a dog bite, or simply making you late for work because they do not want to leave the park. So, how do you still remain your dogs #1 at the dog park? First and foremost, get your dog fixed. Any intact male is only focused on one thing only and that is catching tail, secondly, drop the cellphone from your one hand, the Chuck IT from the other and interact with your dog. This can be achieved by continually moving/walking yourself, calling your dog every 2 minutes off a distraction and rewarding them with a tasty treat once they come to you. Also, use the natural environment for some good old fashion fun or working out in the park and having your dog join. For instance, I often use trees, park benches, stumps ect...to get in a work out while walking the dogs, most often then not the dogs join in themselves or I get them involved. Comote especially loves jumping on and off the park bench with me. It makes you more fun then other distractions, a way better workout for your dog as they have been challenging their brain versus simply fixated on a ball, healthy bonding versus bonding on the couch being potatoes together, and great motivation for yourself. Another factor is recall. No dog without 100 percent recall should be entitled to being off leash. Work on only using your dogs name for recall. Over using their name waters down the importance of when you call them if your calling them fido this, fido that in the home. When I am at the park with my recall trainees. I have them on leash, I talk to them all the time, i have yummy treats, and they wear a HALTI so we get to stare into one another's eyes and have eye contact at all times. This way I have earned their respect and trust, therefore once off leash, they will come when called. So when people ask me how I manage to get all my dogs to come when called or follow me to the car without asking, I say by being confident, awesome and exciting on the trail or park what dog wouldn't want to follow me home ;-) Happy Training!

Food for thought: Dogs are a product of their environment. Genetics and breed type do play a part in why your dog exhibits some traits, but they behave simply with what we as their handlers do. And gasp! Yes! We even encourage those poor behaviours that drive us nuts about our dogs. Often I here people say they have tried to stop their dog from (insert behaviour here) so it has to be their dogs flaw. My answer is we often are making things worse without knowing any better. Any dog whether a puppy, a senior set in his/ her ways, or a rescue dog are adaptable and can make changes to their behaviour. However, a note of warning, some self reflection on your part is going to have to happen. This means looking at your own behavioural, emotional patterns, household energy and dynamics. Scary stuff I know! ;-) With that said, some answers to unwanted behaviours can be simply resolved. For instance, getting your dog off your bed or sofa can answer a lot of bad behaviours, but again they are up their for reasons of your own as noted above. Best of luck on raising a healthy, confidant, and we'll balanced dog!
