The best gift you can give your four legged best friend is the gift of your time and presence. Go for a walk, play a game with them, give them a snuggle - whatever it is they enjoy doing with you most, give them 3-5 minutes of your undivided attention. You wonโ€™t regret it! Your training is only as good as your relationship with your pup.

Pennyโ€™s first birthdayโ€œcakeโ€ was (cooked) ground turkey, peas, and pumpkin, all frozen so that she really had to work at it to enjoy it.

To celebrate her 4th birthday tonight sheโ€™ll have (raw) steak tips, chicken, turkey, blueberries, peppers, and mushrooms, all sprinkled with a little cinnamon and tumeric. Dogs benefit from a wide variety of whole foods, just as humans do!

By regularly offering a variety of foods, this enables Penny to get a variety of natural vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to fuel her body well.
Additionally, having a lot of variety builds and strengthens her gut microbiome and her immune system. (The same is true in human diets too!)

You can begin improving your and your pupโ€™s nutrition simply by adding a variety of whole foods and aiming to eat a rainbow of colors of food; this allows for the most diversity of minerals, vitamins, and nutrients possible.

Capture behaviors by Marking and Rewarding behaviors your dog offers that you like and want to see repeated. For example: if you have a barky dog, wait for a moment when they are not barking and Mark and Reward with Yes!! Good Quiet! And give them a piece of kibble/ small treat. Do this several times. The next time they start barking, wait for a split second of quiet and Mark and Reward with YES! Good Quiet! And a piece of kibble/ treat. Repeat often.
You can capture and train most behaviors this way. (For example: Sit, Down, Bow.)

Teach your pup to โ€œLookโ€ ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿถ at YOU Start by showing your pup a yummy treat in your fingers. Slowly raise it up between your eyes. When your pup makes eye contact, Mark and Reward with YES!! Good Look ___! And give them the treato. Repeat this 10-15 times. Repeat this several days in a row. Then begin moving the treat away from your eyes and wait for your pup to make eye contact with you, even fleetingly. The moment they do, Mark and Reward with YES!! Good Look ____! And give the treat. Repeat 10-15x As your pup gets good at this, keep the treat in your pocket, as for Look, and the moment they give you eye contact, Mark and Reward. Teaching the Look cue is powerful to build your bond and to increase your pups engagement with you. You can also use โ€œLookโ€ as an interrupter to redirect your dogโ€™s attention once they get good at it.
Practice teaching your pup Look and get great photos like these ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿถ

How do you ensure that you & your pooch are getting as many whole, fresh foods as possible?

Foods for a Healthy Gut ๐Ÿฅฉ

Scientific evidence continues to mount that raw and lightly cooked diets are easier for dogs to digest than kibble, and can help improve overall gut function. ๐Ÿ‘

Feed your furry best friend a varied diet of high quality, minimally processed foods.

Feeding a dog just kibble for the entirety of their life is like expecting a human to survive and thrive on frozen dinners only.

We BOTH require a variety of high quality whole foods that have been minimally processed. ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿฆด๐Ÿฅ•

A variety of healthy foods is always the best choice for your family members, including the furred ones! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ‘

Teach your dog โ€œTouchโ€
Start with a lure, but holding a treat with your thumb against your palm. Wave it in front of your dogs nose and when they touch their nose to your palm, Mark the behavior with โ€œYES! Good Touch!โ€ And release the treat. Repeat x10-15 times. Do this exercise 3 days in a row. On the 4th day, ask for a โ€œTouchโ€ with your palm open and no treat. When your dog puts their nose to your palm, Mark & Reward: โ€œYes!! Good Touch!โ€ And quickly follow up with a treat from your treat bag/ pocket/ etc. (not your hand this time.) Repeat 10-15x. Do this exercise as often as you like to build more consistency in the behavior!

Did you know ๐ŸŒˆโญ๏ธ The โ€œTouchโ€ cue (Touch=touch your nose to my open palm, wherever it is,) is one of the most helpful and versatile cues you can teach your pup?
Touch can be utilized to guide your pup where you like them, to gauge their engagement with you, to help them successfully pass a challenging distraction, and more!! What is your favorite cue that youโ€™ve taught your pup?
