Re: exercise for a puppy...

I don't know where I read that, I don't know if it's real or if there are scientific proofs, but I've heard for the puppy : ten minutes + one minute for a week of age. So for a 8 weeks old puppy, you can walk 18 minutes. Maybe it's ridiculous but you can progressively increase the time with this met...

Re: my dog HATES getting his nails trimmed. HELP!

I don't think you need to trim your puppy's nails. He is too young. OK they have sharp nails (and sharp teeth) and they claw, but it's normal and his nails don't have to be shortened. To habituate it, the first thing is : habituate your puppy to be manipulated. Touch him everywhere, his paws, his na...

Re: Getting in the trash

It's true, you always beware of your dogs and don't put him in danger. You can't play with his life and you must pay attention to dangerous products. But you can't manage all the situations. Perhaps at home, but sometimes it takes only few seconds of inattention. But outside, it's impossible. Before...

Re: Getting in the trash

I'm agree with you. It' true, it can work or not and the thief's past is important. But you have more chance that it works if you try than if you don't try and it's not a worth training or game than learning to give a paw. There's no risk to try. On the three puppies I train like this, it works. The...

Re: Belgian Shepard/ Sheepdog

My belgian is a Tervueren with no hairs or a malinois with a lot of hairs loool. I don't know how it works in USA, but here in France we've got Working Belgian Shepherd and Beauty Belgian Shepherd. Enken is a working dog, he is 2 years old and he's a fabulous dog always ready to do something with me...

Re: Getting in the trash

I think it's possible to learn our dog not to getting in the trash and not stealing food if we can learn them where their interest is. My dogs aren't perfect at all, they can be daemon when they want, but I can leave my trash, my shopping, a cake on the table, a piece of meat on the floor, they won'...

I try to improve my English level (which is awful) and it seems you have to speak, speak, speak more and more to do it. So, I ask myself when I am...
