How to train an adult dog?

Most people refuse to take adult dogs into the family, citing the fact that training at this age is impossible. This is a fairly common misconception, due to which thousands of animals remain in shelters.

Is it possible to train an adult dog?
Dogs at any age can be trained. But to achieve the greatest success, you must follow the rules:

professional control. Popular television shows and articles on the Internet will never replace classes with a real dog handler. The specialist will help you find an individual approach to your animal, identify the weaknesses of its character and correct all the negative manifestations of its behavior. Only training under the supervision of a professional will help rid a puppy or an adult dog of various types of aggression (food, sexual, territorial, hierarchical, zoo aggression). Independent attempts to resolve this issue can lead to an exacerbation of the problem or trauma to the psyche of the pet;
from simple to complex. At any age, the same principle applies – first, elementary teams are trained and only after their successful development should we move on to something more serious. Many owners who have adult dogs for protection seek to skip this stage of training, believing that they do not need it at all. Continue reading

Dog Care Rules

A well-groomed dog is, first of all, a healthy dog, and the task of each owner is to organize the right diet for his pet, the correct daily routine, and also conduct regular examinations of the dog to assess its general condition. An interesting fact is that unusual, exotic breeds of dogs require more reverent care. “Classic” pets, as close as possible to their wild ancestors, practically do not need complicated additional care.

Dog inspection
Examination of the dog allows you to identify any health problems, injuries, damage and the presence of parasites. Inspection should be carried out regularly, because the dog is on the street every day at least twice a day. During the walk, the pet can easily injure the foot, get scratched or receive other damage. Also in the season there is a great risk of catching a tick – and the more closely you monitor the condition of your pet, the lower the risk of serious ailments. Continue reading

Dog training

Dog training is not just a fascinating process of interaction between the owner and the pet, but also a necessity, because the dog (especially the medium and large) must know and carry out the basic commands so that nothing threatens the comfort and safety of others. In addition, serious specialized training of dogs cannot be avoided in many specialized, professional structures, as well as in exhibition activities and sports.
First, let’s talk about the concept of “training”, what is it? Training is the training of a dog for teams that will be performed by it in any conditions with the appropriate sign of the owner. In the process of training, the execution of commands is fixed in the dog as a conditioned reflex, which allows the owner to control the dog’s behavior both during its stay at home and during walks.

Training is the key to the safety of others and the dog itself. A trained dog will not run after a ball or a cat and accidentally fall under a car, pick up food lying on the ground, run away from the owner and, of course, do not disturb a person passing by. Continue reading
