Just a few reasons we love what we do!
A morning at camp with Izzy. Puppy socialization shouldn’t just include interactions with other dogs, but experiencing new people, environments, sights, sounds, surfaces, and situations too! We do all this and more at our Paws4training Day Camp, Monday - Friday from 7:30-11:30am in Wallingford Seattle. Join us and Izzy for our next session! Sign up online!

My dogs react to most animals on the TV!!
DOGS AND TV
Why are some dogs fascinated and some show no interest?
Studies have shown that dogs can perceive images and sounds coming from a TV. Dogs also have the ability to visually identify images of other dogs amongst pictures of people and other animals as well as sounds that they’re familiar with like barking, whining, squeaky toys or certain cue words coming from a TV.
But, just because they can, doesn’t mean that they do! Some dogs are not in the least bit interested while some appear fascinated by what they are seeing and hearing. The individual personality of the dog and breed specific traits seem to be the deciding factor. Breeds that are more attuned to movement may show more interest in TV, while breeds driven by scent may not be interested at all.
Even though dogs are able to recognise screen images, they see images differently than we do. Dogs have dichromatic vision which enables them to only perceive colours on the yellow and blue spectrum. To dogs, every colour appears yellow, blue, brown or grey. Despite their different colour perception, they register moving images far quicker than we do. Modern, high-definition TV sets have a higher number of frames per second than older TV’s and are more likely to capture their attention.
Using the science of dog vision, a dedicated TV channel was developed especially for dogs. It features a higher number of frames per second and has colours set to accommodate the yellow / blue visual spectrum. The channel is aimed at providing entertainment for dogs when they’re left alone.
Out of curiosity, I gave this channel a trial run and my Schnauzers were not in the least bit interested even when I excitedly pointed to the dog chasing balls and splashing through water on the screen. My pointing only caused them to check if there was a bug on the screen that they could catch or if there were any food crumbs around the set and after a quick sniff, they all went back to snoozing, very confused as to what I was making such a fuss about! They are definitely a scent driven breed. That said, I have also seen dogs that are fascinated and even very vocal about what they see on the screen. As with most dog behaviour, it all depends on the individual dog.
Rita, DoDo, Katsu and Pepita finished puppy class last night!!
Katsu and Ollie at day camp. A break from play time!
We have had the privilege of socializing puppies since the start of Covid shutdown in February 2020. Our puppy day camp was considered an essential business.
We know how important socializing puppies as early as possible.
Socializing is critical for your puppy’s emotional health.
How the socialization of young puppies affects later behavior.
Congratulations to our recent graduates!

Blog I wrote to help new puppy parents manage destructive chewing.
This image is from the Dog Decoder smartphone app. Your pup doesn’t know the difference between a shoe and one of her toys. It’s up to you to teach and not punish.

Anothe hot day for our pups, along with poor air quality.
Not only do we have extreme heat predicted for today here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest but our air quality is poor due to the smoke from fires. 😕
Please keep this in mind today and do all you can to keep your dogs (and all other animals) safe and cool.

For many, dog walking can seem like a chore, one that is tolerated but nevertheless something that isn't particularly enjoyed. You may be in a rush to get to work or maybe you are eager to watch TV after a long day. You may pull your dog along with impatience and choose to walk the same route daily....
This tweet came across my feed today, and although it was about humans helping other humans, I immediately thought about dogs. Because of course I did: I use everything as an excuse to think about dogs. Brains are just another organ, and they serve the same general purpose as all our organs: keepi
