2 weeks ago we became the owners of lovely Lenny, a 2 year old JRTxPug. We rehomed him from the NAWT centre in Somerset. He’s really good but we would like some help training him with recall so we can build our confidence up to let him off the lead. We’re using a long training
Every night around 7pm-9pm our dog goes loopy. She gets over excited for no reason and is starting to get snappy while she is at it barking and appearing quite aggressive. We have tried ignoring it, distracting her, putting her in her crate which she then tears about. The rest of the day she is

So it’s easier by far to create a positive association than it is to overcome a negative one.
Once we’ve established what our verbal and/or physical cues for behaviour are, we then need to be aware of how many times we’re saying them. This is something my team and I cover in our puppy courses as this is a fundamental part of good dog training, and its very much our responsibility and not our dogs.
Welcoming a new puppy or rescue dog into your home is such an exciting time! But if you’re doing it for the first time, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. Here’s my top tips to get you through your first night in one piece: Bringing them Home I always aim to take the day off when
So what to do if you’re reading this as the owner of a boisterous, young, adolescent dog rather than a malleable, fluffy bundle of small puppy? Well first off I might surprise you and say that it’s very little about what you do when you let your dog off the lead, and more about their
