It’s Small Business Saturday and I just want to say THANK YOU to all my clients and those that have supported me in my first year as a business owner. Also thankful for these 2 idiots that are just thankful for food off our plates and sunning spots.

Button, Gizmo, and their household have joined BBDT for training! Gizmo is a gentleman but can be rather pushy with his love. Button has been guarding her food from others in the home, which isn’t fun for anyone.
🐾
They will both learn about place and self soothing without their humans’ constant affection or management.
🐾
Once everyone has the same expectations and is communicating with the same language, we’ll see a huge relief of stress from this wonderful home.

Power stance! Meet Oakley the mini aussiedoodle. His people want to set him on the path for future CGC skills and possible therapy work.
🐾
This smart little guy is a bit unsure of the world so we’re building his confidence during his imprinting period.
🐾
Remember it’s never too early to start training. Use this time to lay the foundation for the adult dog you want. Unfortunately they don’t stay this tiny and cute forever.

This is what putting the work in looks like. Journee and Saturdae’s family signed up for virtual puppy lessons earlier this year. Here they are asleep on place so their family can vacuum in peace.
🐾
Training is a lifestyle change, just like getting a dog in the first place is a lifestyle change. By practicing skill like this frequently, the whole family is prepared for pretty much anything.

Hey big man! Cosmos has only been with his family for a couple months.
🐾
They reached out for training in the perfect window: they’ve gotten to know him but he hasn’t had time to practice unwanted behaviors with them.
🐾
With training, we will help Cosmos and his family have clear expectations, boundaries, and strengthen their relationship.
🐾
I can’t wait to see Cosmos’ growth over the next few weeks. Watch this space!

Not every part of training is sits and downs. Relationship is a huge factor. Imagine a random person coming up to you, demanding that you sit on the floor. I know I’d be throwing some side eye.

But if that person were to instead engage you in a conversation—hi how are you how are things today—you’d probably be more willing to engage with them.

Relationships can also change. Whether by some event or just over time, interactions with our dogs fluctuate daily. We all have excellent days and terrible days.

It’s important to know your dog and know when to push the training and when to take a break and just play. Take a walk with no expectations. Sit in nature with your dog and just BE with them.

Having your dog trained not only teaches you how to have more control with your dog but also to have more understanding and when to take a break.

Distance. Duration. Distraction.
🐾
So Jojo knows sit. But does she maintain sit of I take a step back?
🐾
Can she hold sit for more than 5 seconds? 30 seconds? More?
🐾
If I throw some treats to the side, will she go for it or hold her position?
🐾
Jojo’s owner mentioned trying to do yoga around her was next to impossible. Guess what? Downward facing dog looks like an invitation to play! So while I practiced my Sun Salutation, Jojo practiced her down. And we both had a great session practicing mindfulness.

Hey y’all! Time for that introduction. My name is Maya. I’ve been working with dogs for nearly a decade in a variety of settings, from daycare to board-and-train. I could watch dogs communicate with each other all day. They are fascinating!

But really we’re all here to learn how we as humans can communicate with our dogs. When we condition and use basic obedience reliably, we can use that to create a common language with our dogs. I want people to be able to understand their dogs better. Isn’t life easier when we’re all on the same page?

From puppies to seniors, all dogs deserve training. Hit up the website to learn more about the training programs Buddha’s Basics offers and find peace through training.

Dog trainers get creative. I’ve found it very difficult or expensive to buy new gear over the last few months. So thank you to Leerburg for having extra Herm Sprenger prong collar parts on hand and Katie's Buckles for providing and easy open clasp to make things simpler for the owners. I find people are less likely to use a new tool if it’s hard to use. These extra parts are good way to use up all those extra links, too!

I know y’all need a puppy face in your life at all times. Today, we met Milo at a hardware store to continue his imprinting program. He and his owner learned how to navigate meeting new people, he heard a power saw, and climbed on all the flooring. To say this little guy is fearless is an understatement. Time to put the brakes on this little engine!

Teach ‘em young! Milo is growing up fast. He’s a confident lil guy who is quickly getting himself into trouble. Time to introduce place! He’ll now have his space to learn to be calm while other things happen around him. His family will also have the peace of mind that he can be part of things without chewing the rug or eating something dangerous. We ended this session today with him dozing off while we discussed training plans.

Bailey started our Homeschool program today! As a typical Boston Terrier (emphasis on the terrier), Bailey has a lot of energy in her little body. She also has been struggling on walks in the neighborhood—getting bullied and intimidated. She’ll learn how to self soothe, that walks can be calm and relaxing, and that her people will defend her from those rude neighborhood dogs. You got this Bailey!

Princess and her littermate, Coco, started lessons with Buddha’s Basics today! They are from the same litter but they each have their own personality. While both interested in food when training, Coco will literally fly for tugs as Princess chows down. Their owners will learn how to use these motivators to their advantage as they raise these beautiful girls.

Littles can do it too! Often people don’t invest in training for dogs under 20 pounds because picking them up solves their problem. BUT it’s not solving anything, it’s likely worsening things. All dogs thrive on structure and training and clear communication. Grace Kelly here has been getting her way for a while. Now we’re building her confidence (and leveling it a bit) by giving her a better way to communicate with her person that isn’t jumping and shriek barking. Welcome to the family, Grace Kelly! Peep that precious underbite 😍

Could not be more proud of this boy! Beau and his family graduated today. Training is a lifelong practice that we incorporate into our lifestyle but now he and his family have the skill set they need to grow together. Amazing job y’all.

Tenzin wondering how he got roped into this training malarkey.

Beau and Tenzin have different issues and different solutions. Beau is dealing with insecurity and learning that not every human that approaches the property is a threat.

Tenzin has never met a stranger and thinks every human should be petting him at all times. He lets the whole house know when he is lacking affection.

So Beau gets lots of engagement while Tenzin gets far less and learns to self soothe.

Different strokes for different folks.

Sometimes there are distractions or obstacles that we don’t really plan for, especially in dog training. When these happen, work through it. Whether that’s removing you and your dog from the area, or on this case, rewarding him for sticking through a really surprising distraction. Beau held his down on place. I waited for him to settle before releasing him and resetting him back to down on place. Strong work, Beau!

Welcome Ginger to Buddha’s Basics! Ginger is new to her family and is still figuring out the routines of her new life. We’re going to give her some new confidence in herself and her new fam.
🐾
Her family needs a consistent way of communicating with her so they can also have the confidence and security to be able to leave the house. That’s where ecollar training comes in.
🐾
The misconception that ecollar is only for highly aggressive dogs is a dated way of thinking about this tool. Ecollar, combined with structure and consistent training, brings balance to dogs. Whether they’re fearful and sensitive or boisterous and obnoxious, this training brings calm confidence to so many lives.

Do you run your dog everyday? Multiple times a day? Do you hope that if they’re tired, those behaviors that drive you bananas will lessen or stop? We’ve been told for years that “a tired dog is a good dog”. But are they really? Are you on your best behavior when you’re tired?
🐾
A tired dog is just a tired dog. If they haven’t been taught what their expectations are, what their boundaries are, those behaviors are still there. The lunging on walks, barking at everything, jumping, getting in the trash, digging in the garden, those behaviors are all still there.
🐾
By walking your dog all the time, without expectations, you’re still putting the effort in anyway. Why not make it beneficial for both of you? Every dog benefits from training.
