Have you ever trained a dog to do tricks? Do you have the patience and willfulness to train a dog? Training a dog can be frustrating at times; always take your time, and be patient with the dog; not all dogs progress the same. Although other methods exist, treat training remains my preferred method for training my dogs.

It is often said that a dog is a man’s best friend. In the last 14,000 years, dogs have accompanied man by helping him hunt, guard, and protect. In our modern world, dogs help us combat in war, search-and-rescue, guide the blind, deaf, discapacitated, rehabilitate patients in therapy, aid law enforcement, and are part of our family as beloved pets (Coren). Although canine superstars such as Lassie, Old Yeller, and Rin Tin Tin portray the perfect dog we all want in our lives, these ideals are far from the truth. Many first-time dog owners expect dogs to know behaviors such as how to walk on a leash, not bite, not destroy the house, and in addition to many others. In reality, dogs must be trained on what their handler wants them to do. It is
Training your dog is the most important part of canine companionship. A happy dog is one who has structure and boundaries. Dogs are pack animals, and as such, they need guidance in the behavior that you expect from them.

A poorly socialized dog is unlikely to cope well with changes in its environment or situation, making it difficult to control for its owner, veterinarian, groomer, pet sitter, and any visitors to the dog’s home. If a dog isn’t properly socialized, it can develop permanently ingrained fear responses and generalized anxiety. Ultimately, this kind of behavior problem can make it unsuitable as a pet – for its owner or anyone else. Nearly half of all dogs in animal shelters have at least one behavior issue –aggression and destructiveness being the most common. Both of these behaviors can be caused by the anxiety and fear that originates from improper or incomplete socialization. BSL causes a positive feedback loop resulting from the banning of “vicious” breeds from certain areas vital for socialization skills which causes the dogs to develop fearful/aggressive behavior, further strengthening the stereotype of such breeds being inherently aggressive, when in reality they haven’t been properly socialized due to the public ostracizing their breed.
Hence the additional training for dogs. This is the training that lets you get the dogs from their kennels and walk them in the play yards. The training was pretty much what one would expect, how to leash a dog, training with treats, etc. We then went to the kennels to practice. I knew which dog I wanted… she wasn’t there… I knew she had been transferred from another shelter, so I was hoping she was transferred again (selfish, I know). We paired up and took turns- 2 dogs, one let the dog out of the kennel, the other back in. We took the dogs out to the play yards, rewarded them for going potty, and practiced sitting and laying down. Again, all reward based training. The dogs we had, Gloria and Lucky, both did wonderfully. Second green paw stamp

Around 12 to 16 weeks of age, puppies begin to teethe as baby teeth are replaced by adult teeth. As with babies, the teething process is painful and chewing on something is the one thing that helps to relieve the discomfort.

Larger breeds generally get in their permanent teeth faster than smaller breed dogs. Chewing inappropriate items is ranked high on the list of undesirable behaviors by owners.

I am not to familiar with the laws at this time. I only know that the training, if any, is not the same as a service dog for a companion dog. I feel there needs to be a law that if the companion dog is to go in public places like the service dog it needs the same training, as well as, a credentials card should be shown if asked by an employee at the establishment. To me, this is important for the safety of people and other service animals. If you were to take a untrained animal into a restaurant and a service dog comes in, the untrained animal has not been taught to ignore other animals or aggressive animals. Service have this training.
