Truth or Myth ?

By the time they're up on all fours
and moving about easily, pups are ready
to learn. In fact, they're easier to teach
than older dog's because they haven't
acquired any bad habits that must be
"unlearned". Puppy training should be gentle,
fun and rewarding for the pup.Even training
classes may be started as early as four
months of age when the pup has it's shots
up to date.

Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.

Meeting a Strange Dog

A simple rule for safety is 'Never try
to pet a strange dog.' Just pass him by and
ignore him.
But what if a strange dog approaches you in a
menacing manner ? Do you try to 'sweet talk' him
into thinking you're okay, stand your ground
or run ? That depends. Check the dog's body
language first. Fearfully aggressive dogs lay
their ears back, tend to crouch, may carry their
tails between their legs and will probably try to
attack from the rear. In that case, maintain eye
contact to intimidate the dog and keep facing him
to prevent bites from behind.
Bravely aggressive dogs approach on stiff legs, ears
up and tail held high. In this case, don't make
direct eye contact. Just turn and walk slowly away.

DID YOU KNOW that archeological findings have revealed that the relationship between man and dog dates back atleast 14,000 years ?

NEVER allow your puppy to do anything you don't want him to do as an adult.

A 'good breeder' will be happy to have you see
all her dogs, whether they are kennel or house
dogs, and she will delight in telling you about
thier exploits. She will have extensive
information about them, and about their ancestors,
along with an armload of photographs and maybe
some video as well.

Don't make the mistake of treating your dogs like humans
or they'll treat you like dogs.

Nobody can fully understand the meaning
of love unless you've been owned by a dog.
He can show you more affection with a flick
of his tail than a man can gather through
a lifetime of handshakes.
