canine traing

Raising a puppy can be a joy as well as a challenge. With the right canine training your new furry bundle of love can be a joy to be around for yourself, your friends, children, and other dogs.

 

Puppies are impressionable and their behavior can be influenced from birth. Traumatic events can leave them with stunted social skills and hurdles to becoming well socialized.  It is not uncommon for a puppy to have an experience early in life that leads them to an aversion towards a relatively safe or nonthreatening experience or situation. 

 

Training your puppy can be about much more than just commands and compliance. Exposure to different things and situations and building a normalization of things that could be perceived as threatening, can be a vital part of dog obedience.

Adopt from a Dog Rescue Facility - It’s the Right Choice!

dog rescue San Antonio, dog adoption San AntonioDogs are not just our pets to most of us. They are family. Bringing a dog into your home means years of love, companionship, and loyalty. It also means years of responsibility that includes Veterinary visits, regular feedings, grooming, and training. Not everyone is cut out to be a pet owner so before you adopt, and hopefully you will adopt from a dog rescue facility, be sure you take these factors into consideration. There are several options for dog adoption in the San Antonio and New Braunfels areas, but the best, and most ethical way is probably through a dog rescue. Buying a pet from a pet store means there’s a good chance the animal came from a puppy mill. Puppy mills do not place the dogs’ well-being at the top of their priority list. A rescue takes animals from difficult or abusive relationships and works to find loving, forever homes. Here are some reasons why it is best to avoid certain animal sellers and adopt through a dog rescue.

Even if you are going on the vacation of a lifetime, you will still spend time missing your pooch and wondering how they are doing. Since you know it can be difficult for you, imagine how hard it might be for your dog. Dog boarding is a great option, but it can be stressful for everyone. There are some things you can do, however, to reduce the stress and make their stay at a dog kennel a little easier on them.

One of the bonuses of adopting from a reputable breeder in New Braunfels is you will most likely adopt a dog that has received some dog training before you take them home. For our litter of German Shepherds, we will start with some training, but you can also bring your pup to dog obedience classes on an ongoing basis. Dog training is so important to not just teach behavior, but also to build a bond between dog and owner. Here are some of the key rules to follow when training German Shepherds.
