What You Shouldn't Do in Dog Training

Most dog training articles or advice would usually contain the best tips on how to achieve good behaviour and a well-trained dog.  All of them are really informational and useful but most of them concentrate on the Do’s of dog training.  While that is a positive note, providing the Don’t's as well can better help dog owners and trainers.  Here are some of the Don’t's in dog training.

Don’t conduct the training in a place with lots of distraction.  Pets easily get distracted with sights and sounds.  Find a place where the pet can hear and focus on your commands. Your backyard will be a great place to start with.  Public places like parks are ideal for outdoor training but they are usually crowded and noisy.  If you choose a park for training, be sure to find a quiet and less crowded spot.

Don’t exhaust your dog in training.  Pets have a short attention span too.  Unless you can sustain their attention and interest, then maybe you can plan a quite extensive training module.  If you can’t, try to keep the lessons short.  Around 20 to 30 minutes perhaps.  Do not push your dog to his limits.  Try to give him a time to rest in between the training time.

Don’t forget to commend and reward your dog.  If your pet was able to do your commands and exemplify good behaviour,   show them your appreciation by commending them and giving them rewards.  Through your actions, your pet can associate that what he did was good, and will do it again so he can get a reward.  Rewards can be food, treats or toys.

Don’t stop until you achieve your goal.  Pet owners have their goals in training their dogs.  Sometimes, dogs are too stubborn and this requires patience among the trainers.  Try to devote your time and exert some effort in training them until you see progress and finally achieve your goals.  Having a well-behaved dog after training will make all the effort worth it.

Don’t be afraid to consult a professional dog trainer.  If you are having problems in teaching your dog, you can always ask a professional trainer for advice.  Hearing it from the experts, you can be quite sure that their tips and advice are proven and effective.  They have handled quite a lot of dogs like your dog and they already know what to do.

Don’t hesitate to try dog training aids. The market now offers a lot of training kits for dogs.  There are kits for obedience, and some for agility.  Choosing petsafe products will ensure pet safety and better serve your purpose.

How to Protect your Dog via Wifi

Technology has also revolutionized dog supplies. From wireless communication, internet, now comes a wireless dog containment. This is a quantum leap in technology that is simply beyond any traditional wireless dog fencing system on the market today.

Pet supply manufacturers have developed their line of wifi rechargeable pet fence that uses the latest digitally encoded WiFi signal technology used in advanced wireless communications with the 802.15 WiFi protocol. Unlike other fencing technology, the Wire-Free Smart Station and Pet Link collar are both connected by Transceivers - highly integrated signal chips that constantly links the distance between your dog and the Smart Station. Wire-Free Pet Fence intelligently tracks the location of your dog at all times, reminding your pet to respect the established boundary safe area, all while communicating critical safety information back to you.

The specifications of this new line of pet fence may overwhelm owners at first, but actually this fence provides great ease not just in installation but also in operation. It also allows owners to save on money by providing a petsafe , reliable and effective wireless fence containment that today’s traditional fencing types fail to provide.

The Wireless pet fence is ideal for small to medium dogs and offers twice the coverage of any other wireless system on the market that is why more and more dog owners are trying it. This wireless fence has no unattractive poles to set up and no wires to bury. Instant wireless dog fence uses a constant radio signal to create a "safe zone" for the pet. What’s also great about it is its portability. Owners can take it wherever they go. It can also be plugged in the cigarette lighter of the car, boat or RV with the help of the DC to AC power inverter.

However, dog owners must also keep in mind that this wireless fence system must also be backed by proper training techniques in order for the dog to get used to it. It’s important that they become patient with their pets for training may take some of their time and effort.

Celebrity Pet Names to Inspire First Time Dog Owners

So you got a new pet, now what do you name her? Wait! Is it a she or a he?

As a first time dog owner you are likely to experience a lot of difficulty in choosing a pet name. You want the name to be unique and meaningful but still perfect for yourr dog. Naming a dog Brownie or Spot is out of your options since a thousand other pets may share the same name for it is some of the most common dog names.  So where do you draw an inspiration? (Light bulb flicks in your brain) How about from a celebrity pet? Bright idea!

Hollywood celebrities do not only shine in TV, movies, music, sports, etc. They also shine in choosing some of the cutest, weirdest, funniest pet names. To give you an example here are some of the coolest celebrity pet names.

A-list duo Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner named their pet Martha Stewart. This is not to insult the chef and green thumb celebrity, but rather to show admiration for her. Jen loves to cook and garden too so she chose that name for their yellow lab.

Jake Gyllenhaal loves both dogs and literature. So how did he show this? By naming his dogs based on the characters of the Harper Lee Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. His German Shepherd is known as Atticus Finch while his Puggle is called Boo Radley.

Like Ben & Jen, and Jake; Joss Stone also chose to name her dog after an inspiration. The soul singer-song writer confessed that Dusty Springfield is one of her top musical influences so she named her poodle after her.

Who is Jackson P. Mutley? Anyone? Well he may not be as popular as his owner, but he did gain his own right to stardom after winning the The World Urban Doggy Award in 2005.  Jack is Mariah Carey's Jack Russel Terrier. He has appeared on several pictorials and music videos with MC, and even had a cameo appearance on the film, Glitter.

Frank Sinatra is not just known as an actor and the singer who made My Way very popular. He is also known as Reese Witherspoon's pet. Oops! My bad, I took them for the same person. Sorry for that! It just happened that Reese's English bulldog is named after him. Reese and former husband Ryan Philippe are both huge fans of the singer so as a tribute to him, they gave the dog his name.

These are just some of the celebrity dog names that hopefully can inspire you. Hope you can come up with something as cool as these. Aside from giving a good dog name, what's more important for a first
time owner, is to give your dog petsafe care and lots of love.

A Look at Disc Dog

As Ultimate Frisbee is becoming more popular as a sport, so is its counterpart in dog sports. Disc dog or Frisbee dog had attracted both dogs and their owners to train hard and compete in events like distance catching and freestyle catching. This and other dog sports allow owners and their pets to strengthen their bond as it require them to spend more time and work together.

Any type of dog can play Frisbee. Mixed breed dogs and those rescued from shelters have made their names in this sport. Engaging pets into sport allow them to live an active and dynamic lifestyle. It’s also a good form of exercise to make him more energetic and vigorous.

However, dogs must be trained first to prepare him for the different challenges of sports. Owners must be ready to devote ample time and effort to develop his physical and mental health. Not all dogs immediately understand the concept of the game so it’s important to be patient enough to teach him the basics of the game. You may throw the disc but he may not know what to do with it. This is one of most common problems owners’ face especially those who are always busy. Good thing there are training kits that can aid them. Just be sure to employ petsafe ways and proper techniques.

For those who want to join disc dog competitions, they usually happen during summer in plain grassy fields or sometimes even in winter on soft snow. Some of the most popular events include the Ashley Whippet Invitational, Skyhoundz, and the UFO World Cup Series.

Get your dog in the game! Train them now to be more active and energetic. Not just for the sake of competing, but also to keep them fit and healthy.
