One of the most important aspects of being a Responsible Dog Owner is having a happy dog.
For happy dogs, positive reinforcement training as well as lots of outdoor play time is crucial.
DOG TRAINING AND BONDING
Newman’s placeholder has been a leader in dog obedience training since in of 25 years, our very own Rottweiler, was trained and happier than ever before. His training included basic dog obedience, as well as services like puppy sitting, puppy to 5-star pet sitting. He also had an upbeat attitude and always seemed to have more than enough energy to dole out to our many travels and activities.
In a time when many of us feel that our lives are busy, not nearly enough time to take care of ourselves, and our dogs are often left alone during the day, it is even more important for us to package up and have fun with them.
Walking 4 miles a day with your dog is great for both you and your dog. It is exciting to get out and feel like you are getting somewhere, when you arrive back home.
Walking will help curb boredom and with a dog that is a little too high-strung, the going becomes boring and the dog learns tooted. Every dog is different, so you need to try a variety of ways of exercise and play in order to achieve a healthy outcome.
When you leave the home, your dog may spend an hour or more barking, tracking your scent, checking out their surroundings and looking for clues as to where you have gone. If your dog is a puppy, they may have learned this as a natural instinct to check out their new environment by following their noses and seeing how far they can go without triggering their mother’s instincts, as if the whole neighborhood or town is their playmate.
If you don’t have a fenced yard then at least give your dog a space to show him/herself. Try a dog door with a bell or a scratching post/berries garden marker as a lead line. This gives the dog the appearance of a neighborhood dog and makes him/her feel more comfortable when they are calling back to their origins to play. Who knows, maybe you will get another dog the next time you leave the country. Fido will be tougher then the last one.
I’m not suggesting that you hang up on your dog and never let him out of your sight. Sometimes it is just too tempting to take the little guy out back and to play with him/her and all your neighbors probably do that too.
The important thing is to exercise your dog. Exercise always helps reduce stress and it also helps you train your dog’s brain which helps reduce the chances of your dog having a behavior problem. It also helps you and your dog have more fun outside.
Give your dog a job. Dogs were once bred to do many years of hard labor. You can give your dog a job, make him/her do Cesar Milan’s dog training act distance, or teach your dog to pull a sled for you. If you want to give your dog a job then you can start with obedience and then go on to activities like scooting the cat or squirrel.
What if your dog spends all his time ignored and caged up in a small space or a small room. Just imagine how confined up he/she must be day in and day out and it must really stress him out. Although a lot of attention is needed for a dog to fit into a small space it is important that you give that attention to your dog as a companion and not just a dog in a small space. One of the best dog rooms are the dog kennels which are so important. He/she will have a place to run and get exercise and have a chance to get out of the sun and the rain and the cold.
There are all types of accessories that can be bought to give your dog a nice place to sleep. You can buy beds, blankets, pillows, toys, gourmet food and treats, and salts and sprays. There is an endless list of things that you can do for your dog to make him/her feel comfortable.
Just by buying these few small items, can help your dog to feel at ease and add comfort to his/her life. And isn’t it great to come home and have your dog there to greet you in all his/her glory. isn’t it great to be able to bring your dog to work with you and not have to worry about him/her being sick or shedding. Isn’t it great to be able to bring your dog to work after being gone for weeks and not to worry about the dog making a mess in your house.
