Dog Training Starts with The Family (And Not the Dog)

We were recently at a Home Dog Training session with new clients in Flowery Branch and their Catahoula named Lurch.  We were called in to help because our client told us that their dog was just really crazy and never listened to a single thing they said.  They had...

Easily Have Your Dog Go in His Crate

I was in Buford last Thursday with a new Home Dog Training client and his Collie, Sophie.  (I got my first doggie when I was five and she was a Collie too!)  Sophie’s biggest problem was jumping and nipping.  These issues are normally caused when the dog thinks they...

Words Are Not Important in Training Your Dog

I was in Suwanne last week at a new Home Dog Training client working with the entire family and their Olde English Bulldog, Margaret.  I just love Olde English Bulldogs because of their personality and looks.  Well, Margaret was a handful and the family was having a...

If Your Dog is Afraid, He Can Not Learn

I was in Woodstock last Wednesday at a new Home Dog Training client and his Weimaraner named Sergeant.  Sergeant was a big and beautiful dog.  Although Weimeraners are often associated with hunting, going after wild animals, guns, etc., Sergeant was somewhat of a big...

Train Your Dog Not to Run Out Front Door

Is It a Good Idea to Get a Second Dog?

Last Friday I was in Ball Ground with a new Home Dog Training client and his Boxer named Rosebud.  Rosebud was just a puppy, so we spent most of our first lesson working on potty training, nipping, manners, and socialization.  She was very smart and was making very...

When Your Holiday Guests Leave

Robin and I were at a Christmas Party at some friends in Big Canoe on Monday.  We had a great time and enjoyed playing with their Catahoula named Boone.  We had given them some tips for Boone and the excitement of a party and they had put them into action perfectly. ...

Stop My Dog Jumping on Christmas Guests

I was with Robin in Dahlonega last Friday visiting some friends.  They have a new, puppy German Shepherd named Willie who is really a great dog. We have given them tips and suggestions over the years to help them with Willie and dogs they have owned in the past.  I...

Make Time for Your Dog During the Holidays!

Robin and I were visiting an old client in Dawsonville last weekend to check in with him and say hi to his great Collie, Martin.  Martin was still doing great and our client had been keeping up with his training instructions.  The rest of the family had also taken an...
