Dog Training Workshop

Wouldn’t it be nice to get inside your Dog’s head and understand how he thinks? Imagine the possibilities: timely bathroom trips, a dog that walks next to you, and he finally listens to you on command – “sit, Fido, sit. Yay! Good doggie. Such a good doggie.” No, we are not teaching telepathy or any crazy Jedi mind tricks – not ruling out those possibilities, but maybe the next workshop.

Sue CarneyWhat is happening is that Dog Trainer, Sue Carney, will be teaching positive reinforcement to problem solve dog mannerisms, create good behavior, and to develop a plan for everyday social activities with your four-legged best friend. Sue is well-known for her successful, fun, practical, and easy approach to training dogs. Her warmth and compassion will put both dog and owner at ease.

The Dog training workshop is free to attend and will be held at Good Vibes Life is good® on Tuesday, July 17th, at 6:30 PM. Make sure you mark your calendar and call to register – (603)433-1300. You could also register at Good Vibes’ Facebook page.

I hope to see you there and Life is good.®

A few dog health tips

  • Your dog has sensitive paws. If you remember when he was a puppy, it took a few months for him to feel safe enough and allow you to touch his paws. Therefore, if it is 80 plus degrees outside, the pavement will be hot and uncomfortable for your dog. Walk your dog off the pavement and on gravel, grass, or dirt.
  • The temperature inside a car is typically 30 degrees hotter than it is outside. Therefore, leaving your dog in the car and in the sun on a 70 degree day could have an actual temperature of 100 degrees! This could have fatal consequences for your dog, especially if the windows are rolled up, because he cools himself by panting. And if the day is blazing hot, the dog will struggle to stay cool and hydrated. It is best to leave him at home on hotter days, and on the warmer days, if he’s in the car, keep the car in the shade with the windows rolled down. Do not be afraid to call 911 if you see a dog, or any animal, in the car on a hot day. The police and animal control will assess the situation and help the dog.
  • Your dog’s crate is his safe place, as your home is your safe place. It is not recommended to discipline your dog by sending him to timeout in his crate. This will send confusing signals to your dog, make him feel insecure, and result in less obedience. Imagine if your parents disciplined you by saying, “Your in timeout. Go to your home!” Confusing, isn’t it? Have an appropriate time and place for your dog’s discipline, and be consistent with your tones and actions.

  1. I am a fan of positive training like many people, though you do need to be careful sometimes about the overuse of treats!

    • Good Vibes says:

      Yes, I agree. Conditioning the dog through treats only makes the dog dependent on treats. And it will make him fat 😉
