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...

When Your Family Members Don’t Want to Train the Dog

We were at a new Home Dog Training client last week in Dahlonega working with her and her French Bulldog, Sammy.  Sammy had some issues with not listening, loving to jump on everybody, and having a hard time walking on the leash.  We had a great session and Sammy...

What to Do With a Barking Dog

I was in Cumming last Thursday on a Home Dog Training revisit lesson with my client and his cute little Maltese, Zoe.  The original reason that we had been called in for dog training was Zoe’s potty training and chewing the base boards in the house.  My client had...

Dog Food Aggression at Meal Time

I was finishing up my initial training session in Gainesville with a new Home Dog Training client and his American Bulldog, Boo.  I had been called in to help with general obedience problems such as sit, stay, come, walk, etc.  Our initial session went very well and...

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

I was in Canton on Wednesday working with a new Home Dog Training client and his Brittany Spaniel named Mary.  Mary is a very active dog and one of the main problems we worked on was making sure she would give focus and respect to my client.  This is key in...

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...
