The Myth of 10 Lessons

Pets
Somehow, somewhere this myth came about that it takes 10 lessons to teach basic obedience to dogs. When I first started to train here I had many clients tell me they had hired someone else first and paid for all the lessons in advance and the trainer only turned up twice or three times...oldest scam in the book.

TNR Comes to Nairobi (In a Limited Capacity) But It’s a Start

Pets
I am currently trying to fundraise for those that can’t afford to spay/neuter. I also need a few more cat traps for large colonies and I also want to purchase a few dog traps. I have my eyes on a few male dogs that stay near schools, dukas, roadside lunch and stands.

Why I Love Facebook and How That Has Anything To Do With Dogs!

I use FB for sharing knowledge of all things DOG. I usually post a dog funny or two, I post dogs lost or found, I post training and behavior articles and the VERY BEST part of FB is still seeing "my" dogs all over the world.

From Rescue Dog to Working K9

Pets
Having raised 6 Labradors for currency and drug detection for U.S. Customs, I knew the drive and the attachment to a particular toy could indicate a good working dog. I called the President of LRCP and asked her if any Police Departments were looking for detector dogs.

Tips for Becoming a Good Dog Walker

Pets
Dogs want to walk to sniff and to leave their mark. They absolutely should be able to do these things on a walk, but they have to be able to walk nicely so everybody gets something from the walk. If your dog is horrible on the leash, it wrecks your back and shoulders and you won’t want to walk it again.

When Dogs Get Too Protective

Pets
An elderly woman was feeling poorly, a possible heart attack. She knew her Doberman wouldn’t let anyone close to her so she called for an ambulance, and then tried to close the dog into the house while she went into the garage to wait for help. The Doberman pushed past her and got into the garage with her...

How Dogs Learn

Pets
Dogs don’t arrive on this planet knowing any human words, let alone basic training commands. I am always perplexed by people that bring home an 8 week old puppy then start shouting “sit, sit sit” at it expecting it to sit on command, or worse they start pushing down on it’s hips or yanking it up by its collar.
