A Paradigm Shift in Dog Training

1/19/2024
Many people think dog training is stopping unwanted behaviors or fixing the dog. Dog training is actually teaching the dog what you want it to do. Dog training should be focused on setting your puppy up for success instead of focusing on their unwanted behaviors. When you change your mindset to teach the puppy good behaviors, the undesirable behaviors disappear. Focus on what you want the dog to do and reward that behavior.

Therapy Dog Training for Puppies

1/16/2024
A therapy dog lends comfort and affection to people in a facility setting or specific individuals who require visitation to deal with a physical or emotional problem. There are 4 steps to complete Therapy Dog Training. After these 4 steps, you must take a test and be observed by the therapy dog organization for several public visits with your dog around people. I suggest ATD (Alliance of Therapy Dogs). My dog, Dixie, and I are members of this organization. Step 1: Complete a Basic Dog Obedience Program. This gives you the foundation of basic commands, loose leash walking, and proper socialization skills. Step 2: Complete the AKC Canine Good Citizen Training and Test (CGC). This test consists of 10 items listed here. (The AKC CGC is not a Therapy Dog certification) Step 3: Complete the AKC Community Canine Training and Test (Advanced CGC). This will ensure that you and your dog are fully prepared for the Tester/Observer to meet with you for evaluations and testing. Step 4: Get tested and observed by the ATD Tester/Observer. This is all done voluntarily and consists of 3 visits with visits with the tester/observer to complete your ATP Therapy Dog Certification.

Potty Training Your Puppy

1/4/2024
3 Steps to Potty Train Your Puppy. More info in my book Potty Training Your Puppy. 1) Your puppy should always be supervised or confined while indoors. Supervise your puppy closely or have them in the crate. Supervised means you will see it taking place if your puppy has an accident. The only exception to this rule is if you know your puppy has just gone potty and now has an empty bladder or colon. Then, you may be able to get away with a brief period of less intense supervision, but never leave your puppy completely unsupervised. Watch for sniffing, crying, circling, panting, or suddenly wandering away from you and going off to the corner or near a wall. These are signs that they need to go potty. 2) Take your puppy outside on a leash as often as possible. Puppies 8-12 weeks must go out at least every hour, supervised while on a leash. Set up your walk to match your puppy's patterns. Take them to their place to go potty. Now say “go potty, go potty” very enthusiastically. Keep repeating this command until they do. If they do not potty after 10-15 minutes, bring them back inside, put them in a crate for 10 minutes, and then bring them outside again to repeat the process. 3) Give your puppy praise and a treat immediately after they go potty outside. Choose a high-value food reward you will use to give your puppy once they go potty outside on the grass. Praise your puppy for going potty on the grass, provide them with a lot of affection and say “good boy or good girl” so they understand that you are praising them for doing something good.
