  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I'm a part-time dog walker looking for some advice on how to handle a dog that's not leashed trained and doesn't handle walks or being near other dogs well.

  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a two year old pit. He’s attached to me by the hip and lately he’s been growling at my husband.

They start interested and wanting the treats but 5 min later the dogs lose their interest in the treats and in the training. I only have one hour with them every...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    1) Low Value Treats: Are Your Treats Worth Working For? It’s a romantic and hard to debunk myth that dogs work for us just to please us. In reality, as opportunistic beings, dogs are most likely thinking “what’s in it for me?” according to the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). The right...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have always been interested in Dog training and animal behavior. I really want to go to a school for Dog training, but with my busy work schedule it would have to be an online school. I would love recommendations and advice. Thank you!
