DOG TRAINING AT HOME
DID YOU KNOW?
There are many things that frighten most dogs; vacuum cleaners, thunderstorms... looking into an empty treat box.
But did you know that humans can unintentionally cause stress, fear, and anxiety in your dog?
Layers of stress that build up over time can cause behavioral and health problems.
Dogs thrive on consistency and routine. Helping your dog feel safe means: providing regularly scheduled meals; walks; and playtime.
Be consistent with training methods and caregivers.
Make sure your dogs have a safe place they can go, like a bed or a kennel, when change happens. (ASPCA)

The Family Dog
Canines are hard working citizens who love to
learn new things; live to help others; and have
a deep desire to belong! Early and consistent
training builds a solid foundation to achieve
these three goals over the course of a long,
healthy, happy life.
