Todayโ€™s #TrainingTuesday topic is covering how to make your dog lay down. ๐Ÿพ 

โ€œDownโ€ can be taught very similarly to โ€œsit.โ€ You can wait for your dog to lie down (beginning in a boring, small room such as a bathroom can help) and capture the behavior by reinforcing your dog with a treat when he lies down, giving him his release cue to stand back up (and encouragement with a lure if needed) and then waiting for him to lie down again. 

When he is quickly lying down after standing up, you can begin saying โ€œdownโ€ right before he does so.

Happy Memorial Day to all of our fallen soldiers and military working dogs! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Fun fact, did you know that Every Military Working Dog is a Noncommissioned Officer? ๐Ÿ• 

In the spirit of tradition, to make sure handlers donโ€™t mistreat their dogs, each canine holds the rank of noncommissioned officer โ€“ one rank higher than the handler.

Dogs and humans BOTH agree - when the temperature soars, nothing refreshes quite like a frosty bowl of ice cream. ๐Ÿฆ The only problem? Human ice cream isnโ€™t the best choice for our pups...

BUT we have a solution! Check out this simple recipe you can use to spoil your furry best friend! ๐Ÿถ 

Ingredients:
๐Ÿพ 1 banana
๐Ÿพ 2 Tbsp peanut butter
๐Ÿพ 2 Tbsp plain yogurt (use non-fat or non-dairy alternative, like coconut milk if you prefer) 

Equipment:
๐Ÿพ Blender or food processor

Instructions:
๐Ÿพ Dice up a ripe banana and freeze for at least 4 hours.
๐Ÿพ In a food processor, place the frozen banana, peanut butter, and yogurt in the bowl and blitz until smooth.
๐Ÿพ Serve with a sprinkle of cookies, a dollop of fruit (can you say PB&J?), or just as it is.

P.S: Your dog will thank you. ๐Ÿ’•

Obedience Training is not the solution!

Most people today think of dog training as teaching your dog how to 'sit, stay and come'. In most cases, this kind of obedience training is all you can expect when you enroll your dog in a training class at a dog training school or hire a dog trainer.. ...This unfortunately falls way short for many of you who are in need of real help with their dog! At best when you need your dog to listen, your dog only really knows a few tricks and NEVER listens when distracted. At worst your dog exhibits chronic ongoing problem behaviors that are very annoying to very serious in nature. If you're looking for help with your dog's aggression, soiling in the house, incessant barking, pulling, jumping, or damage of furniture or clothing, etc., you are typically forced to rely on dog trainers with severely limited ability, if any, to resolve any of these issues. Many, just like you, have found themselves at their wits end, having gone through other dog trainers wasting precious time and money and still not resolving their dog's behavior problems. Often dog owners come to the unfortunate and regrettable conclusion, that they either have to live with their dog's unwanted behavior or they actually have to give up their dog.
