During the mid 19th century with the Industrial Revolution in full swing, middle class families began keeping domesticated dogs and cats as pets rather than dogs bred for working and/or a purpose.
.
.
Up to that point, the common households gave little consideration to the animals they owned. So a dogs diet consisted of whatever an owner could spare. Potatoes, bread, knuckle bones, cabbage or whatever leftovers they were.
.
.
Around 1860 a businessman by the name of James Spratt saw dogs being fed leftover biscuits from a ship and an idea was born. With a mix of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot and beef blood the first commercially-prepared pet food was introduced to meet the new market demand of middle class families.
.
.
Using the current nutritional knowledge of the time period, around 1890 a British company took over Mr. Spratt’s formulas and productions sending the business overseas to the U.S. and the commercial dog food craze began to take shape.
.
.
Bet you didn’t know
.
.
A common meat source to purchase in the early 20th century was HORSE meat, as many working horses would die in the streets, instead of disposing the bodies, they were broken down for feed. Commercial canned dog food company “Ken-L Ration,” was introduced in 1922 and its main ingredient was horse meat, a acceptable ingredient source at the time.

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies brea…

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies breath smells the way it does? It begins with a healthy puppy and a hearty dose of its mother’s milk. The lactose in her milk smells sweet and digest easily. The digestive enzymes in your puppy’s stomach breaks down the proteins in her milk which adds to the sweet aroma. Some VETERINARIANS believe that puppy breath may be the result of its esophagus developing.
.
.

If a puppy has bad breath, then it could indicate a serious health problem. The first thing a veterinarian would look at is their teeth. In adult dogs, a problem like gum disease and impacted teeth could lead to bad breath but since a puppy’s teeth are still developing, it’s highly unlikely a foul odor is the result of a dental problem. Checking and cleaning your puppy’s mouth is a good habit to begin while young as they usually don’t like being bothered with when they’re older.
.
.

Intestinal Parasites is another common cause of bad breath. Worms can be passed from the mother to their young through pregnancy and through their milk. Indications of parasites are vomiting, diarrhea, lack of weight gain, brittle hair and coughing. Puppies should be treated and dewormed as early as 5 weeks. A severe worm infestation can cause death.
.
.

Coprophagia is the term, its when dogs eat their own stool. A stage in a pups development is using their mouths much like a person use their hands to touch, feel and learn everything about the world around them. This can possibly lead to why some dogs continue to eat their stool as they get older. This habit will usually go away as the pup matures but some pups can continue the same way a child would suck on a thumb if not stopped by a parent.

A common question I get “WHAT METHOD DO …

A common question I get “WHAT METHOD DO YOU USE FOR YOUR TRAINING?”
.
.

I don’t really like this question as some trainers actually believe that the methods they were taught in is the only method available to train a dog and they should only be trained within those methods.
.
.

My rebuttal is If you train ten (10) dogs the same way nine (9) dogs wouldn’t be trained right. Every dog is different, you can begin with a different breed, is it a male versus a female, age of when you begin training, owners having different ideas of how to raise the puppy, and of course personalities, etc.
.
.

When we look at it that way, a trainer must adjust and adapt to each dog and do what’s best and responsible to attain the best results, and that’s definitely not using the one method that a trainer knows but various methods to get there.

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 👇🏽

Let’s face it, we can all be inconsistent in areas of our lives. So when it comes to training your dog I can see how one can be lazy. You hired a dog trainer to TRAIN your dog but you must understand that in order to get your dog to work for you, you must also put in work and be CONSISTENT with how you handle your dog.
.
.

There is one thing if the person doesn’t earn the respect of his dog and expects the dog to do what he’s been taught, it’s another when they know how to handle their dogs but are too inconsistent with caring about their dogs behavior in one situation and not in another.
.
.

Inconsistency in dog training can lead to future behavior problems when there is none. Dogs basically understand RIGHT or WRONG, the BLACK and WHITE of things.
.
.

Look at it this way, if 9 out of 10 times you keep your dog from jumping on you, but on that 10th time you relent, it is that moment that your dog feels like he won and succeeded. That my friends is what keeps DOGS CONSISTENTLY trying. The point is you’re the superior animal here, don’t allow the dog to get his way. Try to be more consistent in what you trained for, what you want and what you expect. Your dog will thank you for it in the end.

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.

When working in agitation training it’s important to follow directions. An agitator is putting himself in a situation that can be dangerous if precautions are not taken and of course following directions.
.
.

At the same time, a bad decoy (agitator) can physically and mentally ruin your dog if they’re not experienced enough in working with dogs and/or misreads the dog. Broken teeth, legs and neck have happened out on the field and will continue to if precautions and directions aren’t followed.
.
.

Now go ahead and watch the video and see how fast things can go wrong when directions are not followed.
