This is an exciting talk today. It's to encourage a team new to training and filled with very advanced subtleties in training for the ultimate in teamwork. If you only listen to one talk up until now, let this be the one. It’s my favorite. I love what I get to do. If you'd like to share (and I hope you do), click here.
Life changes such as moving, divorce, military off overseas, child to college, a death of a family pet may have a big impact on your dog.

This podcast is an excellent reference to help you navigate the most positive transition for your dog. Even if you don't have a dog in your family this is helpful information for you to support loved ones going through transformation.

More and more I’m seeing how businesses and areas are catering to our beloved dogs. Examples include work, lodging, neighborhood communities and even cities.

Learn what you need and how to prepare to make a great impression with your dog. A little effort on the front end will benefit you greatly and ensure you both are at your best resulting in invitations to the highly desired dog offerings.
Share your experience (and creativity) with your dog interviews and resumes:

There are many, many ways to train a dog. Ask around and you will hear a spectrum of answers from the sane to crazy, kind and not so kind, controlling or no training at all that people call "absorbing" while living together. (This last one is the #1 reason dogs are surrendered.)
Listen to this simple and incredible way to get your dog's attention, help them learn cause and effect and make good choices. Develop a wonderful loving relationship built on trust and care and choice. You will both grow and benefit from it.
UPDATE: A few hours later we were able to easily and quietly do the first complete nail trim. Everyone relaxed and in agreement. YES!
Remember how I glowed about the dog park in Mount Pleasant? Well, Sullivan's Island Beach is just as fabulous! Actually it's way more! (Plus a few more beaches in the area are dog friendly.)
Wonderful people, wonderful socialized dogs, fantastic beach! It's hard to leave. Do note there are restrictions and licensing so do adhere to the rules and stay out of the dog house and keep it fun fur everyone.
One week into the trial and experiencing positive results! For someone who's been encouraging the use for dogs, why am I surprised ? Because I'm doing the exact same treatment along side the canine. I observe positive change in the dog and now I'm observing positive change in me! We are 1/3 of the way through and not easing up at all. It's wonderful. Check it out.
I admit I'd gotten disillusioned with dog parks. I've been to so many that turned into bad hoods. We've experienced it - bully dogs, scared dogs, out of control dogs, dog poop all over, dirty water bowls, parents busy socializing and not paying attention to the dog experience. Then I was encouraged to note caring people speaking up in attempts to correct the dysfunction. Then there were the few who became very aggressive in their corrective actions and turned bad in their own way.
I kept to the hiking trails many didn't use and we enjoyed out outings.
I came to Mount Pleasant, SC to visit a dear friend and she said the best dog park is Middle St. Pearl, Gabe and I headed over.
My canine guest and I are taking the Rescue Remedy treatment for 13 days. This unique and natural healing treatment will address his recent behavior changes that do not serve him and for me, well I have my own behaviors I'd like treatment for. We have 13 days to take the treatments together 4x/day, 4 drops per dose. We've diluted the remedy so it's even stronger. There are absolutely no negative effects. Listen to how we can tell when to stop taking the remedy and follow along and we'll give updates- both human and canine.
Broken dreams. The ideal dog gone bad. Often people get discouraged with a dog situation, blame the dog, and give it away.
The dog wasn’t the problem. The real culprit is lack of training, care and addressing concerns.
Talking about signs, symptoms, & solutions.
As you pay more attention to the relationship between you and your dog, you will find your dog will too. We explore curiosity, subtlety, engagement and positive reinforcement. Be the change maker in your relationship. Your dog will be much more willing to follow your lead towards being a relaxed, happy, easy going and attentive, responsive canine.

THIS is how it's done and it is fast to train. Incredible, at the right time and the right place, to capture teaching quiet in a whisper and getting desired results.
Clarifying point: the treat or toy (desired item) is in your hand when you draw your hand off to the side.
Get first lesson success and then practice to develop consistency and gradually add distractions. This is how easy clear communication training can be. And you are maintaining your best friend relationship. Love it!
Update: Drawing your hand off to the side is important. This action obtains your dog's total focus and gives space and time to draw out the quiet, no barking period that you will acknowledge and reward.
Disclaimer: Some of the barking is from me with the purpose of inciting barking from my student. There was additional barking from me because I enthusiastically got caught up in the excitement of barking. That is all.
DOG ALERT! If you see a dog in this or a similar situation, jump into action and help this dog! (See image here) Be willing to be a voice for those who are not heard. Bravely, and kindly, stand up for dogs who are at the mercy of others in need of clarity. When we take a moment and wonder how we'd feel as the individual in need of help, it makes us braver. I'm not saying we'll do it perfectly. But if we find the courage to align ourselves with the dog, sincerity will carry us through. We might sweat bullets of fear, but let's do the right thing for the dog. Right? Right.
P.S. Don't be a doggy downer who creates Doggy Don'ts.
