You Turn Home with your New Friend

When training your dog, be sure to enforce every command you give. This helps your dog understand that they must listen to you when you give a command. If your dog learns to think that he can can ignore you when you give a command, it can be very difficult to correct this.

Reinforce desirable behavior from your dog. Don't just rely on treats though. You can reinforce these behaviors through positive attention as well. Petting your dog and talking to him in cheerful tones can be a good incentive too. So can a new squeaky toy or a trip to the park.

Remember that sometimes patience is key, don't become frustrated if your dog doesn't catch on right away. It would be nice if every dog could understand your every command but you have to remember they can't. Just try and be sure you are aware of your dog's emotions and when they do follow your command reward them so they know what they did was right.

Not all dogs are comfortable around other dogs or people. The best way to train your dog to be more comfortable around other animals or people is to expose them to as many people and other dogs as often as possible, preferably earlier in their life. This will make them accustomed to being around others.

Consider your dog's personality as you begin your training program. Make sure to start slowly if your pet has aggressive tendencies.  If you try to exert control over a dog that prefers to be dominant, your pet may react aggressively toward you and derail your training plans.

When you are working on dog training your newest addition to the family, try not to accidentally punish the animal for good behavior.  If you have gotten a puppy, for example, and he goes to the bathroom outside correctly do not leave the dog out there alone.  Take time with him and play with him because if you leave him alone he will be sad and think he did something wrong.

If your dog is misbehaving, try to determine why. It is important to work out why your dog is doing what it does. Knowing the reason for poor behavior can make training significantly easier. It is far more difficult to correct an action that you do not fully understand the reasoning behind.

Throwing out your dog's food bowl can assist you with your training program.  Studies have shown that animals respond well to working for their meals.  Incorporate food as a reward in your training and also, use it for entertainment purposes.  You can do this by putting the food in a toy or a puzzle.

Dog training is not something that is easy to do properly, which means you should do your homework. Learning how to train your dog is almost as important as learning about dog behaviors and how they interact in a pack. Knowing what your dog expects from a pack leader makes training the animal much easier.

Very Hot Morning...

If you think about all the activities that are possible to undertake in the hot hot morning, you probably have to consult Basja. She is great specialist in the field of hot morning time organization.

The secret of a happy morning is the full stomach.

The only problem is to enter the house (since Basja is a stray cat). But when one of the humans has to go to work at 5 am, everything becomes easy: enter the house and wake up the other human who still sleeps in the bed. 2-3 jumps on her back -and she stands up to add food in the plate.

Than, it's necessary to open the door to go out. It's too hot in the house. Only repeat jumping on the back - and the door is open. Now, good morning!

If You are Looking for a Good Veterinarian

A good veterinarian is really very important if we have a pet. There are different reasons to look for somebody who fits for us and our friend, too. Our vet has to understand needs of various species of animals, he has to know their problems of health, he has to understand our personal state of mind, too, just like colorado springs veterinarians and other very attentive vets everywhere do.

Your furry (or not) friend is precious for you, and the vet has to understand your feelings when you come with this animal to him. It hurts you so much when your vet -even if he is a very brave doctor- treats your friend as a kind of common object that can be thrown in every moment. Unfortunately, it can happen. With two Rottweilers we had, we changed 3 veterinarians just for this reason.

There is an other point that is necessary to remember when you look for a doctor for your pet. Choose the vet who can explain you it's medical conditions and the ways of further development of the illness. It's so important to understand them so that you know what can happen and how can you help in this or that case. The doctor has to show you all the options of the treatments. He has to tell you why they can be the good way to follow. In our case, the vet continued expensive therapies when they could change nothing more without explaining us anything. The bill raises so much with unnecessary procedures. We want to pay a good vet and his work but not the cures given only to make you turn back always and pay something.

What a Bull can tell to a Man

This photo was published in Facebook and I copied it here because the story of it touched me deeply.

This is a moment when a bull did not want to fight with the man. Wounded, he stand in front of the man and looked in his eyes with the expression:  I don't want to fight with you. I feel bad because I'm wounded. You can kill me if you want. But I did nothing to you.

Toreador closed the fight, went away from the arena, became vegetarian and is an opponent of all corridas now.
