Thank you to these (Trouble, Howie, Stella, & Clint) for joining September’s Community Pack Walk & Cleanup event (starting with bagels from ). In addition to this trash bag, the humans picked up 2 additional grocery bags of trash. Cleaning up the community while walking a dog is a good opportunity to practice: patience, calmness, “leave it,” loose-leash walking, handler awareness, etc. Visiting a food establishment with a dog is a good opportunity to practice: calmness, sit stay, down stay, “leave it,” etc.

Swipe to see my newest fur client. This is Remy. He’s a 1.5-year-old . I’m working on teaching him a handful of things, including learning to stay out of the kitchen. One thing I’ve decided to try to help Remy (and some of the other dogs I train) is mapping out the area I don’t want the to enter using to give them (and me) very clear visual guidance while we work on changing the behavior.

Come join me and my for a (free!) group on so we can tucker out the dogs before the fireworks. Getting your dog tired with structured exercise is one thing that can help your dog to relax. We are starting early so we can beat the heat.

Reactive dogs and muzzled dogs are welcome (so long as muzzles are securely fit and you have a handle on your dog). Everyone is welcome to join! Please be mindful of the rules. Patriotic dog accessories are encouraged. 🇺🇸

and accompanied me to today’s hosted by . We practiced a lot of “leave it” while I collected trash. Then we practiced in the presence of a lot of distractions (people, food, etc.). Winnie struggles with attention demanding behavior; what you see here would not have been possible when I first began working with Winnie a few months ago.

Clint the wants to party 24/7 around other . So I’m conditioning him to relax (with the option of having a bone or a toy). I allow him to play with the other dogs, but I don’t allow the dogs to play the entire time when we have breaks.

A lot of dogs don’t know how to be calm around other dogs because they don’t practice spending time around other dogs and not playing. I frequently see dogs that have been conditioned to be overly excited around other dogs (and/or people). If you want your dog to be calm around other dogs, you have to practice having your dog be around other dogs and not allowing them to engage in play.

For anyone who feels like it’s mean to not let your dog play every single time they’re around other dogs, consider this:
Kids don’t go to recess all day. They go to school. They have some recess, but they also have rules and structure. Requiring rules and structure for a dog isn’t mean. It’s just good (dog) parenting.

Aside from potty breaks for your dogs, I recommend keeping your pets indoors today. Here are some ideas on what you can do indoors instead to help drain your dog physically and/or mentally:
- If you live in an apartment or condo building, you can exercise your dog inside the building by walking them around on leash
- Practice obedience training
- Teach your dog a new trick
- Play scent games with your dog

What other indoor activities can you think of?

The (Zuko, Tulip, and ) helped me potentially save a dog’s life today. The (photo 2) was off leash and followed my pack into the street as we crossed. Once we were on the sidewalk, I scruffed the dog because he didn’t have a collar on. I quickly turned one of the leashes into a slip lead and used it to safely restrain the dog. He was anxious about being restrained and began to snap. Some of the other dogs began to react to his anxious energy, but I remained calm. I handled the dogs cautiously to prevent any dogs or myself from being bitten until we could make it inside the firehouse. Once the dogs were calm, I let the puppy off of the makeshift slip lead (my dog was attached to the other end), where he could hang out with the firefighters until being picked up by animal control. Shoutout to Howard and the other firefighters for helping me get this puppy safely off of the streets.

As a friendly reminder for dog owners, please make sure your dog wears a collar (preferably with proper identification) at all times. Many dogs slip out of their collars, harnesses, etc. because they are not properly fitted. You should never be able to fit more than 2 fingers under a dog’s collar/harness. If you’re using a head harness, you should never be able to fit more than 1 finger underneath. Prioritizing a dog’s comfort is meaningless if it results in a dead dog. So please, please, please check your dog’s collar, harness, etc. regularly.

Champ ❤️

Our hearts are heavy today as we let you all know that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, passed away peacefully at home. He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family. Even as Champ’s strength waned in his last months, when we came into a room, he would immediately pull himself up, his tail always wagging, and nuzzle us for an ear scratch or a belly rub. Wherever we were, he wanted to be, and everything was instantly better when he was next to us. He loved nothing more than curling up at our feet in front of a fire at the end of the day, joining us as a comforting presence in meetings, or sunning himself in the White House garden. In his younger days, he was happiest chasing golf balls on the front lawn of the Naval Observatory or racing to catch our grandchildren as they ran around our backyard in Delaware. In our most joyful moments and in our most grief-stricken days, he was there with us, sensitive to our every unspoken feeling and emotion. We love our sweet, good boy and will miss him always.

⚠️If you have any bird feeders or bird baths, please stop using them in order to help prevent the spread. Pet parents should be on the lookout for dead birds while on walks in order to prevent dog(s) from eating a diseased dead bird.

Experts urge residents to stop using bird feeders, to prevent disease spread.

Meet Shep. He’s a 2ish-year-old mix. Behind that is a giant goofy baby. He likes to lounge in the sun and rub his body through bushes. He’s a recovering human aggressive dog reactive , rehabilitated by . We spend a lot of time together practicing the art of relaxation 🧘‍♂️ around humans and dogs (using a muzzle for extra safety). I’ve also been working on building trust between Shep and myself and Shep and my dog. He hopes to one day join the rest of the pack, but for now we’re focusing on conquering that anxiety.
