Why you need to muzzle condition your dog.

Posted on March 25th, by sean in Training Tips. Comments Off

Hey gang, here’s a quick tip about the importance of muzzle conditioning your dog. Lots of folks will simply put a muzzle on their dog in times of crisis or in situations where they have issues.

This might be at the vet, around guests (if there’s issues there), or introducing new dogs to each other. But here’s the issue with that. While the muzzle being on prevents an actual bite, if it’s just been put on your dog¬†without prior conditioning it’s going to add considerable stress to your dog. So that means that the vet visit will be far worse, the reaction to guests in the house will likely be increased, and the introduction to another dog will likely result in a panic attack and/or fight.

If you’re trying to get your dog over an issue or association, than this is obviously … Read More »

More direction, less affection.

Posted on March 3rd, by sean in Training Tips. No Comments

I know this is the age old human/dog issue! :) Our dogs fill so many voids and gaps that us emotional humans struggle with daily. We each have our issues, our insecurities, our fears, and our need to nurture and be nurtured. And our dogs are the perfect receptacles for whatever we project on to them.

Unlike the boyfriend or girlfriend who will let you know that your 1000th text of the day is getting a little needy, your dog will just absorb and absorb. (Our dogs are great at setting limits with physical interactions, but not so much with emotional ones.) They don’t understand that you’re leaning on them becuse you’re lonely, unfulfilled, scared about your future, or heartbroken, they only understand that the person spending time with them is in a soft, weak, non-confident space, and this creates all kinds … Read More »


The Magic of E-Collar Heel.

Posted on March 2nd, by sean in Training Tips. No Comments

Hey gang, I just want to take a second to share with any of you who might be struggling with either reactivity issues on the walk or major pulling shenanigans. As great as the prong collar is for helping many walk issues, the very best tool for calming down a reactive, anxious, nervous, wild and crazy walk is with e-collar heel. The way the e-collar shares pressure (without constricting around the neck, and the novelty of its sensation) tends to calm, relax, and tune-in dogs that would otherwise struggle or perhaps escalate. And the even cooler thing is, contrary to what many believe, done right, it’s also one of the most gentle ways to deal with serious pulling or reactivity issues.

So if you have a puller or reactivity problems and you’ve tried other tools or approaches and are still struggling, … Read More »
