Be real – with your training expectations.
Successful dog training doesn’t happen overnight. It will take time, consistency, and patience. If you think big and expect big, you may be disappointed and give up. That won't get you what you want and could put a strain on your relationship with your dog. Ask yourself these questions:
Bark. Bark. Bark.
It’s 3 AM and you can’t sleep because that neighbor’s dog is barking. It’s the fourth time this week and you’ve had it! Time for action. Time to talk to your neighbor.
Flashing lights. Booming cracks. Thunderstorms terrorizing your furry loved one?
Dogs have that fight-or-flight instinct like we do. They hear a loud, scary sound and some may react without a thought. Sadly, they don’t always make the right decision. Instead of hiding away temporarily like a cat, dogs try to escape and get as far away from the scariness. That doesn’t bode well for them or you!
Q: “I'm interested in the ultrasonic and vibe bark collar but I have a very large dog. I'm concerned firstly that it won't be strong enough and secondly about the collar sizing. Dog is 150lb Presa Canario, very wide neck.“
Your dog’s barking is driving you mad? I don’t doubt it. It would drive me crazy, too. And it has.
But there is a solution. It’s YOU!

Welcome New Year! January is National Train Your Dog Month, so it’s a great time to make that New Year’s resolution to get your furry friend doing what it needs to. It can be fun to train your dog tricks like how to shake, or roll over, but training your dog is also very important.
With my first puppy as an adult, I allowed him to share the couch with me. It was a mistake – A big one. Mostly because he grew into a very big boy; a yellow lab, who was close to 100lbs.
You can only imagine the battles. I was only 22 with a small IKEA couch. Hardly room for me, let alone trying to share with a big dog that would stretch out contently. Cute, yes. Annoying, yes, that as well.
