Mallee is not exactly thrilled with strange objects closing space on her or the banging and rolling sound our mop bucket makes so we have turned it into a start button. She moves towards the bucket and we mark that behaviour with the bucket moving or the mop moving. This way she controls the movement of the bucket and works towards counter conditioning it at the same time.

Here at A Pet Perspective we are all about manners! 🙌🏽 Here is Maka’s before and after on playful manners! Before, Maka would play aggressively and exhibit behaviors such as face guarding, resource guarding and chasing other dogs! She also would not allow dogs to relax but after some work she is finally getting the hang of playing respectfully 😊 In the 2nd video both pups are playing while still maintaining a comfortable atmosphere 🙏🏽 Way to go Maka!!!
❄️Your heart is as pure as snow, and deserving of unconditional love❄️ .
Secret has seen her very first snow!! She literally ADORES it and we plan to gear up and try to enjoy it haha. I’m currently frozen from going out in clothes not fit for Winter so I could take pictures 🤣 later we’ll go back out to just play and maybe get some cool videos!
(Later when I went back out I fell down the stairs omg 😂)
One of the latest rituals in my household is making our own homemade ghee.
It takes minutes to be done and the benefits are amazing.
Why ghee? Because it’s full of antioxidants, precious vitamins like vit A, D, E and K. It contains heart-healthy fats and it’s great for those with dairy allergies. Because if your skin needs a boost in moisturizing, ghee is just as perfect ON your body as it’s IN your body.
Just go and google “Benefits of Ghee” and you’ll see how wonderful it is for us. ~
Thanks immensely @nabalo for the recipe.
Bark collars are not simply a bandaid for keeping your dog quiet. Barking is your dog’s primary method of communication, and it could mean that they need your help with toys, water, or a potty break. Incessant barking could also be related to more complex issues such as fear, anxiety, or stress. That said, bark collars can be an incredibly effective training tool - it’s just important that you use them. Here are some things to look for if you’re buying a bark collar for your pup:
False Bark Detection:
Bark collars of days past were notorious for sending false corrections when nearby dogs were barking - even if your dog remained perfectly quiet. These days, it’s standard for bark collars to be equipped with false bark detection, so that your dog doesn’t get punished as a result of other dog’s actions.
Multiple Signal Types:
Gone are the days where bark collars relied solely upon shocking your dog to tell them it’s not OK to be barking while they are wearing the collar. Modern bark collars should come equipped with audible signals and vibration to get your dogs attention as well. Even better are the products that allow for various levels of each signal type so that you can customize it to your dog’s disposition.
Warning Signal Enabled:
Another basic feature to look out for is whether or not the bark collar has a warning signal. Should you choose to utilize the static correction setting, the collar should be designed to emit an audible warning for the first bark prior to issuing the correction.

I see this float around the internet frequently and thought I would address this. This is BS.
I don't know who or how anyone came up with these statistics, but they hold no truth.
Adopting a dog with an unknown history is something that needs to be taken seriously and addressed responsibly. The absolute best thing you can do for a dog that just came into your home is to start a clear routine and establish clear boundaries. Set the dog up for success! Help your dog understand what is and isn't allowed. It takes a huge weight off of dogs when they don't have to try and guess what they should be doing.
The worst thing you can do is bring a new dog into your home and just turn them loose. They more than likely will get into trouble or do something they shouldn't be doing. This is especially critical in homes with other animals and children. Safety first!! If you are consistent, your dog will likely have the routine figured out within a week. Dogs thrive on routine and structure. Ideally your dogs routine should consist of potty breaks, training with their daily meals, play time, crate training, structured walks, and spending time on place with a tie back. While it may be tempting to give your new dog a ton of affection it is best to keep affection limited and meaningful. Structure first, then affection. Also a lot of dogs don't enjoy being kissed on or hugged. It's always best to avoid those kinds of things.
When a dog training session ends that doesn’t mean the dog stops learning until the next session. Training is happening all the time wether you are aware of it or not. Your dogs are constantly learning so make sure you give them the right information.

When it comes to creating a place for your dog to run around in your yard without your direct and constant supervision, the two best options are a traditional fence and an invisible dog fence. —
This is where a traditional fence probably takes the upper hand. A traditional fence creates a physical boundary that keeps your dog contained. While it doesn’t stop your dog from learning how to unlock the gate, dig under the fence, jump over the fence, or simply break through it, there’s no denying that it is a robust barrier if installed correctly. Invisible dog fences can work just as well, but they do require training on the owner’s part and there is always the possibility of system failure. —
With a traditional fence you’re going to have to pay attention to appearance. Whether or not it’s desirable, there will be some obstruction of your view. Furthermore, you are going to have to start off with a fence that looks suitably nice, but you’ll have to maintain that appearance as the years go on. On the other hand, an invisible fence will have no impact on the appearance of your yard. —
When it comes to price there is simply no comparison. While invisible dog fences are generally priced in the hundreds of dollars, a traditional fence can easily cost you thousands for materials and installation alone.
We got a little sun today so we will enjoy it while it’s here☀️Look at that smile🤩

Flip is a dog that goes 0-100 in a split second. I have been working on neutralizing his environments to have him be less activated by people and usual objects. Flip still tests my commands but is becoming much more consistent and reliable. YOU GO FLIP!
Getting your dog used to a crate from an early age can be a very successful tactic when training, but it is often a technique that is misunderstood or performed incorrectly.
Your dog should spend short intervals in their crate, particularly when they are young, with plenty of potty breaks, time to run around, and interaction with their owner. A crate is not simply a cage to keep a dog in while the owner is busy.
Your dog should feel safe and secure while in their crate, much like a wild dog would feel when they are in their den. A crate is not a place of punishment, on the country it is like their bedroom within your home.
Successful crate training should lead to the dog entering the crate voluntarily. Eventually, the door shouldn’t have to be closed. If the owner routinely forces the dog inside, then there is likely a breakdown in the crate training technique. #dogtrainingrevolution#dogtraininglife#cratetraining#housebreaking#dogtrainingtip
Thought of the day: What dogs do and do not "like". You'll hear it a lot in the world of dog ownership - "my dog doesn't like their nails being clipped", "my dog doesn't like other dogs" or "my dog doesn't like going to the vet." Dogs, especially puppies can be pretty convincing when they freak out about a new thing like being left alone for the first time.
When you're raising a puppy or rehabilitating a rescue dog it's important to build trust slowly and work on all areas of their life each day to make them emotionally robust and able to cope with what life will throw at them.
Initially your dog may show signs of not liking something, but that does not mean give up or avoid that subject forever. Avoiding the big issues can exacerbate behaviours. It's our responsibility to commit, build unbreakable trust and reach training goals for the sake of our dogs being stable adults.
אחד הדברים החשובים ביותר בשביל הכלבים שלנו, זה חשיפה ! אם נדאג לחשוף את הכלב שלנו לכמה שיותר מצבים, הכלב שלנו יהיה יציב ורגוע ברוב הסיטואציות. בסרטון רואים את פיגו בחשיפה לילדים ונדנדות בפעם הראשונה ! תחילה רואים שהוא קצת לחוץ, אבל מהר מאד הוא צובר ביטחון ומזמין למשחק 🐶
*אילוף כלבים - פקודות משמעת.
*פתרון בעיות משמעת - כרסום רהיטים, צרכים בבית, משיכה ברצועה, תוקפנות ועוד.. *אילוף בתנאי פנסיון.
*פנסיון ביתי קטן וחמוד.
*הכשרת כלבי ביטחון לכל מטרה. (שמירה, הגנה ואיתור).
*הגנה וליווי לאזרחים. *שמירה על מתחמים, שדות וחצרות.
*איתור ריחות (המותרים בחוק) *איתור נעדרים.
🧠 How To Socialize Dogs and Puppies.
🐶 Socialization means training your puppy or adult dog to accept new people, animals, and various places by exposing him to these things. 🐶.

🌙Late nights spent with you🌙
Been working on a few tricks and such! We mainly are just having some fun though, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us 💞Big thanks to my lil sis @bleu.face.baby for helping with the filming!
I created Calm Dog Games because I love working with my spaniel and it's this - the relationship you build with your dog - that is the foundation for our style of 'training'. He can push my buttons sometimes because he has a mind of his own and sure knows how to exercise it, and be a cheeky sod at that! 😅
Cloudy day outside, been out on a date for lunch with the Mr (who’s on holiday all week) and then got home to work on my biz.
I’m so grateful I get to work at my own pace, no pressure, no deadlines. No bosses.
And that i get to have a break with tea and cookies when i feel the need for some sugar.
Also this oat & dark chocolate cookies are AMAZING.
