Dog Tip of The Day, February 28

Keep a journal of your dog’s training and practice. Make notes of behavior and take a lot of pictures. It is interesting to read through later when the dog matures.  Also it is a good place to keep certificates, awards and veterinarian records.

Dog Tip of The Day, February 27

Puppy teeth are very sharp and puppies don’t realize it. It is very easy to get a little scratch from a puppy and people mistake it for a bite when they see the blood.  It is not a bite.  If the dog is going to bite you, you will know it.  They sometimes scratch you with their claws too without even knowing it.  Don’t punish the dog.
