Teaching your dog to high five, play dead or tidy up is easier than you think and your dog will love the attention. Here is a guide on how to get started.
The critical puppy socialization period between 3 - 12 weeks of age is a time of rapid learning. A recent study notes the difference between puppies from pet shops and breeders and the behavioral impact of poor socialization.
A dog who is "leash reactive" is most likely experiencing some anxiety, fear or discomfort associated with other dogs. The situation is worse on a lead because your dog can’t approach in a safe and relaxed way.
For the most part dogs are our loveable, goofy, tail-wagging companions and important family members. However, teaching children to be safe around dogs, both those they know and those they don't, is an important part of being a pet parent.
