How to Properly Pet and Show Affection To Your Dog

We were at one of our clients in Ball Ground the other day and they were mentioning about their grandchildren petting their Basset Hound named Fred.  It seemed than whenever the grandchildren pet Fred, he would get crazy and sometimes a little aggressive.  After...

Make Sure Your Dog Has Enough Exercise

We were in Suwanee this morning working with a new Home Dog Training client and his Dalmatian, Gizmo.  My client works long hours and Gizmo is left at home for ten to twelve hours at a time.  He also works some weekends, so this takes him away from the house and Gizmo...

You and Your Dog Picking the Kids up at the Bus Stop

I was in Johns Creek last weekend working with a Home Dog Training client and Comet, her Labradoodle.  Comet was responding excellently to the training and my client easily understood the concept of calm and respectful focus.  We were able to work through most of...

How Strict Should You Be With Your Dog?

Robin and I were at a Dog Training revisit session last Wednesday in Lawrenceville with a client and his German Shepherd.  The Shepherd was just fine and the client said that everything was going well with him.  All the rules that he had set up for Rupert were coming...

When You Don’t Have Time for Your Dog

Play with Your Dog to Create Good Manners

I had a great question from one of our Home Dog Training clients in Hoschton yesterday.  Shadow, their two year old Labrador Retriever was mostly a great dog.  He knew most of his commands and was pretty well behaved.  They knew that he was high energy and the family...

Understanding Your Older Dog

We were in Jasper last week with one of our Home Dog Training clients and his Chow, Rocky.  We had been working with them for several years and stop by from time to time just to check in and help them with any new problems or situations that pop up.  Rocky was one of...

How To Properly Introduce Two Dogs

I was at a Home Dog Training session last week in Braselton with a client and his Sheltie, Sam.  Sam had a problem of not paying attention, lacking obedience, jumping, barking, and just doing “annoying things”.  After about two hours, we had most of those problems...

Refocus Your Dog with a Great and Simple Solution

I was at the market in Alpharetta yesterday and had just rolled the shopping cart up to my car.  The car has signage saying “Home Dog Training of Georgia” on the side so it is obvious that I train dogs.  A person approached me and wondered if I could answer a dog...
