This may shock a lot of people out there but I believe that having a fenced in yard increased the chances of behavior issues and I actually don’t like them for dogs if used improperly. I know that’s hard to understand, considering almost every other dog “authority” says that a fenced in yard is a plus for having a dog. Take a listen to my reasons and you just might find yourself rethinking that fenced in yard of yours. In this episode 1:32  Pointing the figure at rescues 4:42 ...

This past year I stumbled upon an incredibly effect way to make your dog listen to you more, as well as treat some serious behavioral issues. This is something that I don’t see anyone else doing or talking about but after experimenting with it on a number of dogs I’m a believer. What’s this secret weapon to helping your dog? . . . Being silly. Sounds stupid but listen in to how I’m using it and see the results I’ve gotten with both my dog and a few of my clients.

No matter how much we know or how much we try there will still always be a gap between us and our dogs. We just can’t completely communicate with them because we are two very different species. Unfortunately this can hold us back from being able to help them through some of their issues. Lucky for us there are some furry helpers available to us that can come to the rescue that can help dogs having some difficulty feel more confident but also make huge impacts in improving the situation....

Dogs chew stuff – that’s what they do. We can’t blame them for that, they’re just being dogs. What we can do is train them to know what’s appropriate to chew on and what they need to keep their teeth off of. And that’s up to us to do. In this episode I’ll go over why your dog is being destructive and how you can steer his behavior the right way so that you’re creating good habits so that all stuff doesn’t get eaten.

The big problem between dogs and people is that we are speaking two very different languages and neither of us is really understanding the other. As humans, we rely on verbal methods of communication, whereas our canine companions are non verbal. So we both keep talking but very little of our messages are being received as intended. Now I know your dog is smart and can make many word associations, however he’ll never learn the language of English. So it’s up to us to bridge the gap and...

I’m a rescue guy so it should come as no surprise that I’m against puppy mills. They are barbaric dog factories where the animals are poorly treated and are creating unhealthy and bad mannered puppies. What I’m always most surprised at is how many people don’t understand how to identify which places are puppy mills (especially online) and how we can stop them.
