This means a lot to say this, dogs have changed my life in more ways than I can say. Guess I’m feeling a but emotional this morning, thanks to my G @chinoxl for giving me the inspiration to post this. He’ll understand….

When you look at the picture, what do you see? A man that’s in shape, fit, muscular, skinny/thin/lithe as opposed to not FAT and athletic.
.
.

This is the idea of what a man that’s in shape would look like. SWIPE TO THE LEFT and we’re back at the picture that brought this post on. I’ve noticed comments on how the dog is too SKINNY but in reality that’s what a dog that is in it’s optimal workout shape should look like. An athlete.
.
.

Again, I’d like for those viewing this post to swipe left again and see what a dog that is too SKINNY looks like and know the difference. Emaciated and peak conditioning are two distinctly different physical forms.
.
.

In the end it comes to perception, you might perceive that the dog in the second picture is too skinny but the reality that’s what’s called “conditioned weight” so if you think it’s skinny, heck yeah he’s skinny but it’s a dog low on body fat and high in muscularity.

Nobody ever comes out the same after owning a dog. The majority of times people come out feeling good about their dog ownership and sometimes, well not so good.
.
.

Whatever your experience may be don’t place all the blame on the dog. Firstly blame yourself. Could you have done more, trained better, been more consistent, be a better owner, more patient.
.
.

If you can honestly answer with all yes then good for you but if you can’t then truly it isn’t the DOGS fault.

The question is, would your dog be trained better being sent away or if the trainer comes to the home to work with them.

What you do is begin by flipping your dog over and counting how many nipples your dog has 😂 If you actually went and did that, I don’t know what to say. 😂
.
.

Note: a dogs size will typically determine its lifespan, smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger breeds. So how old is a dog compared to a humans age.?
.
.

First off the whole “seven dog years equals one human year” isn’t accurate. Here’s how it breaks down. The first (1st) year of a dogs life is the equivalent to fifteen (15) years of a human life. How? Within the first (1st) year, a dog goes from being born to almost full size, his mental state is capable enough of fending for itself and the dog is sexually mature enough to be bred or have a litter. It’s safe to say a human would fall into the same category.
.
.

This is how the SEVEN (7) years per one (1) dog years was figured out. Humans average life span is eighty four (84) years where a dogs average is twelve (12) years. When you divide twelve (12) into eighty four (84) you’ll get the average of seven (7) years.
.
.

Because of different factors (health, environment, breed) not all dogs would age the same, so an average six (6) year old small dog would be about forty two (42) years old whereas a large breed dog would be about forty five (45) years. Again this is a roundabout of age since many factors can determine age.

Why wouldn’t someone want a smart dog? T…

Why wouldn’t someone want a smart dog? They’ll learn faster and will be trained quicker. Although there is truth to this, they’re is something most haven’t thought about when it comes to their SMART dog. When training begins and education evolves, the SMART dog will begin to see what they can and can’t get away with, always overthinking and trying to out smart you. They begin to seek short cuts and take more chances. I find that most dog owners don’t see the signs and allow behaviors to manifest where other issues will come about. They’ll recollect to themselves and make statements as such “he was SIT, STAYING correctly last week and now he’s not”
.
.

It is at this point that the SMART dogs owner will simply write it off as “my dog so SMART that he’s STUBBORN” where I’ll respond with, no fool aren’t you beginning to see the “SMART” dog might just be challenging you? It’s not that we don’t want a SMART dog, if you begin to see how my theory is theorizing then you’ll begin to see that the SMART dog is more work on both the owner and trainer to deal with. In the end what we really want is a dog that will learn to follow directions and commands.
.
.

Let’s steer this SMART DOG issue into today’s perspective where dogs are much like an only child in a family unit. Our pets have learned to take advantage of their owners and of situations making its owners, enablers. They’ve out SMARTED people while people have gotten gullible. Humans have open up their homes and allowed dogs the same freedoms and privileges that their humans counterparts share and SMART dogs have fully taken advantage of it, they’re SMART aren’t they?

Jumping is a common complaint when it comes to…

Jumping is a common complaint when it comes to dog ownership. When you come home from a long day of work, your dog incessantly jumps happy to see you or god forbid you’re all dressed up to go to a party and your dog jumps on you and now your wardrobe and possibly night is ruined. Let alone having company over and your dog doesn’t know how to act and begins jumping on them the minute they walk in and you wonder how all this began.
.
.

What’s funny is that it could have all been resolved when your dog was a puppy and you played a major role in perpetuating the behavior and didn’t know it. When your dog was a puppy and he came to greet you, he jumped on your leg and you began petting and playing with him unintentionally cultivating this behavior and with every praise it you reinforced what would eventually become a nuisance.
.
.

Now that we’ve identify where you went wrong and for those new puppy owners reading this firstly don’t allow your puppy to jump on you. Instead, teach the puppy to sit before being petted. Continue to reinforce the SIT command every time you greet your puppy. After some time, he’ll understand in order to get praised or your attention, he must sit first. Continue with the same plan when he greets anyone else, family members, friends and strangers always making sure that he SITS before he is acknowledged. Before you know it, he’ll get the hang of it and it will become second nature to SIT instead of jumping when you come home.

Training with me doesn’t always have to …

Training with me doesn’t always have to be “walking in the middle of a park and making your dog do sit and heel commands” it comes down to learning how to communicate with your pet.
.
.

Anyone who’s worked with me knows that I try to explain every step of the way:
.
.

what your dog is doing
.
.

why he’s doing it
.
.

and what’s he going to do next.
.
.

A more educated client is a better client. A client that knows his dog, how to read his dog and who’s connected with his dog will make a better owner and friend for his pet.
.
.

Those of you who’s trained with me, share with others how you’ve learned about your dog and what I’m talking about down below 👇🏽

Your dog can never be too old or too young to start training (within reason). Same can be said for a person, (again, within reason) Everyone must be involved, if they want their dog to listen.
.
.

Obviously aside from teaching a child RESPONSIBILITY, like having to remember to feed, provide fresh water, and to clean up after their dog. A relationship that develops can be life-changing for a child as they themselves continue to grow and develop.
.
.

When training a dog, I press to my clients how important PATIENCE is to teach their dogs. In turn, dogs teach children patience as a dog can be frustrating. Puppies like to nip and chew, scratch, jump and slobber while getting to children’s toys and destroying them as it’s theirs. Patience teaches children restrain all the while to teach without yelling and/or hitting a dog.
.
.

What I know for sure is that dogs teach children COMPASSION, understanding the feeling of emotions and pain.  As dogs have short lives, and a child would more than likely be there for their dogs entire life cycle, a lesson however hard it may be is an invaluable lesson for a child as they comfort their dog and cope with their loss. 
.
.

And most importantly how much FUN they will have with their best friend and pet by all the interaction they’ll have throughout their lifetime. From dressing them up, to taking them for walks. Spending time training and playing fetch. Your dog is always their through good and bad days as they’re always there to cheer you up.
