Many pups never get clear input about what the owners want and what the rules are. Guess what? Without your input the dog does what it wants and what's working/rewarding. For Toy Poodle Rosie this is starting to change. Ideally owners become the source of guidance and input for the dog. With this is in place you become the focus, not the environment.

What can happen when a dog never got ANY boundaries and then you start giving him boundaries? He can freak out and does not cope well. Meet Mars, a 1yr old Japanese Spitz and Shih Tzu Cross where this holds true. A squirt of water in the face for incessant barking proved to be a major stressor. Before training can proceed effectively the stress needs to subside.

Meet Ace aka Mister I am sooooo excited and I can't control myself. Well, one lab is learning and he is doing amazingly well. In this pic he has been on his place for a good 5 minutes with lots of distractions around him. Dogs learn quick if your communication is clear. So, are you clear? If your input is off, the output will be off too.

Dwarf Dachshund Riki has a tough start in life. Her skull is too small which creates pressure on her spinal fluid. She is on medication. Despite all of that she is wilful, stubborn and determined. She is learning to be alone which is a tough one for her since she has been with people 24/7 for the last few weeks as she could not walk and was carried around all the time. Not that she can walk crate training is the first port of call, as it ideally is for every pup.

Pug bundle double trouble :-)
Doing obedience drills ALWAYS helps dogs. And owners. Incorporate them in your daily life and you will enjoy your dog more. Guaranteed.

Another hyper #Yorkie learning to calm down and offer other behaviours. A trainer once said there are three ways of giving input to a dog:
1. Too little
2. just right
3. Too much
This applies to any type of input. Think about that next time you interact. Your dog will let you know which one it is if you know what you are looking for.

Hyper #GoldenRetriever Jack is driving his owner to the point of considering rehoming him. The stubborn young man learned to get his way and is rather persistent at perusing what he wants. Jumping up, pushing into you, refusing to walk, pulling you in each and every direction are a few of his hallmark behaviours. Not easy to deal with for an elderly lady. But this lady says after one session: "I can see the light at the end of the tunnel" and "This is amazing". Wonder what happened?

Now that Poppy is learning not piss everywhere in the house she is learning to not bark at everything outside. Loose leash walking is where the learning starts and luckily for the owners she is quick in the uptake. Help you #yorkie settle, they are generally not good at it without guidance.

#Labradoodle Buddy as fluffy as his toys. It is tempting to give your #pup access to all the goodies (FOOD, TOYS, FREEDOM, PLAY, AFFECTION, ATTENTION) all the time. But then you have nothing to offer anymore and you set your pup up for failure and lots of mistakes. Instead take everything your #puppy wants away and then use it to train him and teach him what you want. Why? Because then your pup will love the behaviours you teach him and then you will truly enjoy your companion.
