Which Type Of Crate Is Best For My Dog?
A crate is the greatest gift you can give your dog. Why, because dogs are den animals and the crate becomes your dog’s den. So which type of crate should you select for your dog, the plastic crate are the wire crate? In my opinion there’s no comparison the plastic crate is the all-out winner and I’ll tell you why.Give Your Dog A Job
Is your Border Collie being mischievous? Is your German Shepherd digging under the fence? Is your Labrador Retriever driving you crazy by bringing you the ball? These are all examples of a bored working dog that needs something to do.Housetraining: A Crate Idea
The frustration that leads frazzled pet owners to abandoning their dogs to shelters the most is a lack of effective house training. Remember that your dog is a family member, and as such, is worth the time and effort required to properly house break them, so that you can be a happier pet owner and your dog can be happily in their family’s arms, not in a shelter.The Correct Way To Walk Your Dog
One thing that dog owners complain most about is the fact that their dog is dragging them down the street when they go for a walk. It’s not only uncomfortable but it can actually be dangerous. Over the years I’ve seen people with hurt arms and shoulders as well as people that have been knocked to the ground.When Should I Start Training My Dog?
One of the questions I’m asked most often is how old should my dog be before I start formal training. As far as I’m concerned that’s an easy answer, 4 months (16 weeks). At four months old your puppy is like a blank canvas waiting to be painted with all the training you want for your new family member. At four months your dog hasn’t developed a bunch of bad habits and he’ll never be easier to physically manipulate because he’s getting bigger everyday.
