We started groundwork training today for carting or Urban mushing! Trick will be a year old in 10 days. The first pic shows him learning line-out tied to a tree. The rest were taken on our morning walk. Notice the line attached to his harness stays snug, while the line attached to his collar stays loose, unless he needs help. We worked on hike, whoa, gee, haw and on-by. During this very first lesson, he was able to maintain line out when he whoa'd, which you can see in the last couple pics as he looks over each shoulder at me, without turning around. Good boy, Trick! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก #

If you have a puppy or adolescent dog, this can happen in mere seconds! I was outside for maybe a minute, when I came back in, Trick had the TV remote in his crate. And no, it doesn't work anymore! Now anytime I can't supervise, he is in his crate! Dogs don't "outgrow" behaviors they are allowed to rehearse, which is why management is so important to *prevent* practice of undesired behaviors like destructive chewing.

What does exercise have to do with training and behavior? Lots! A well-exercised dog is less likely to be anxious, bored, destructive and engage in other unwanted behaviors.

This is not p**p! The one on the left is a long, previously flat, stuffing-free, "roadkill" fox toy! The one on the right is the rest of Trick's dinner. Last night while loose in the field, I observed him swallowing the entire toy as he played keep-away from me. Knowing that this could potentially cause a deadly blockage, I took him in and gave him a small amount of peroxide to make him vomit. He will no longer be allowed to have this type of toy, obviously we need to continue working daily on recalls and probably do more long line work. Peroxide can be toxic, please don't use it without consulting your vet for dosage. I just wanted to illustrate that even experienced trainers can let their guard down and have accidents. Hopefully we learn from them the first time and change our behavior so that our dogs don't have to pay the price.

Keep your senior dogs moving daily! Improve their quality of life by keeping them lean, adding enrichment, physical therapy or rear end awareness to strengthen weak hips. I add human grade joint supplements around 7 years of age.

Why crate train? It's an important life skill we can give our dogs! It's a portable den for travel, motel stays, visiting family or friends, reduces anxiety on vet stays, confinement for recovery from injury, surgery or illness. I wasn't introduced to the concept of crate training until I was about 30. All of my dogs love their crates and would even crawl into smaller crates if that's what was available! #

Would it surprise you to know none of my dogs have ever ridden with their heads out the car window? Even before I started crating them for safety! I'm not willing to risk delicate eyes, nose and ears. Something else I see far too often is little dogs riding on the driver's lap! Airbags are deadly!

Last week I was at the beach and the gravel was scorching hot! There were lots of dogs and the owners didn't seem to be aware of why their dogs were pulling, holding a paw up, etc. Protect your dogs feet on sunny days, they can burn on many more surfaces than just pavement!

Those of us in the Bay Area sure wish Mary would come back! I took several Rally classes from her, and they were just excellent. If you have a chance to work with her out there, grab it!
Got an interesting dog problem. The neighbor's dog comes into our yard to play with Stefan. She also tends to do her business in our yard. That wasn't a big deal until Stef started rubbing the side of his neck and face in it which makes him less than pleasant to live with. We liked him having a playmate who gave him better exercise than we could. Because of the lay of the land, it is very hard to keep the other dog out. She is able to jump down in a place it is almost I possible to block off. We tried, but succeeded only in blocking her path out of our yard and preventing her from going home. I think that may be the solution. She's pretty smart and perhaps getting trapped a few times might convince her coming here is not a good idea?

I realize you might think this question is my idea of humor, but it is absolutely real. Even I could not make this up!
