Top 20 Most Destructive Dogs

Top 20 Most Destructive Dogs

I found an article today discussing the top 20 most destructive dogs. They are not talking about dogs attacking people or other dogs but simply destruction of property around the house and in some cases, the house itself. The study was done by a British insurance company. A total of 3,000 dog owners were interviewed by Esure Pet Insurance, which found nearly two-thirds had paid to repair or replace items damaged by their animals. Most of...

Dog Owners Most Responsible for Dog Attacks

Dog Owners Most Responsible for Dog Attacks

As dog owners we are most responsible for dog attacks. No, not other people’s dogs, our own. Why, one simple answer is lack of proper training. All my dogs have been dogs that would rather lay in the sun than get up and go bite someone. If they did get up they would only do so to make a new friend. Now I have what I call my “Chorky Mutt.” She’s part Chihuahua and part Yorkie. She is a 6 month old wild child. Any...

Reasons for Mounting Behavior in Dogs

Reasons for Mounting Behavior in Dogs

I’ve not read anything serious about the Reasons for Mounting Behavior in Dogs. I made a lot of assumptions, most or perhaps all, of which are wrong according to this trainer’s information. So if you’re a bit like me take this information in, process it and decide if your dog needs a little help. With rare exception I’ve always had females. They have never “acted out” on humans, just each other. Take a...

Raising a Service Puppy What does it take

Raising a Service Puppy What does it take

I suspect most of us have no idea about raising a service puppy. So what does it take to do the job right? What about the commitment to the project? What about the emotional attachment to the Service Dog or Service Puppy? Many of us don’t even take the time to train our own puppies at home. Read about Christine Gillow and Ruby as they answer some of the questions about what it’s like raising a Service Puppy, emotionally,...

The Family Pet a Look into the Future

The Family Pet a Look into the Future

After reading this you may not think of your pet in the same way ever again. Here is a article about the family pet and I call it a look into the future. Family pets are being studied in order to understand how dogs process and absorb information. Progress in these types of studies and science mean that there can and will be more service dogs available for all the many thing they do. Guiding the blind or searching rubble are just a couple...

Why Dogs Attack

Why Dogs Attack

I just recently found this great video regarding why dogs attack. I found it very educational and I hope you will too. It explained a lot for me. If you are an owner like some of the owners they talk about in this video I hope you will consider following the guidelines they give here. If your dog is too old for socializing then please consider a heavy duty dog crate instead of keeping your dog at the end of a chain. Pay close attention to...

Smartest Dog in the World? What do you think?

Smartest Dog in the World? What do you think?

It was only yesterday when I posted information about  animal psychics which brought up the subject of how smart are our dogs, really. Today I found this short video about a dog in Austria which the BBC is suggesting just may be the smartest dog in the world. This is based primarily on how many human words the dog understands.Take a look at this short video and decide for yourself. I wasn’t surprised to find that is was a Border...

Teaching Your Dog To High-Five Couldn’t be Easier

Teaching Your Dog To High-Five Couldn’t be Easier

While checking out a new plug-in I happened across this video that I thought was very well done. It’s dog training that any of us can do given the time, treats and inclination. Plus, it’s not so much like “dog-training” for those of you, if you’re a bit like me, are intimidated by those to words “dog training.” Teach your dog how to be just plain cool! It’s an excellent and short video just...
