  • Preventing Anxiety | HAPPY PAWS - PetCare ®

    Preventing anxiety OBEDIENCE TRAINING 101 GUIDE Dogs with anxiety or separation anxiety can experience distress when they're left alone which commonly results in: Excessive barking, whining, or howling Urination and defecation Destructive behavior Digging and scratching ​ Signs of Separation Anxiety The behavior occurs primarily when they’re left alone and typically begins soon after you leave. They act anxious, depressed, or overly excited when you are getting ready to leave the house. They follow you from room to room when you're home. They display frantic greeting behaviors. ​ Triggers for Separation Anxiety A dog accustomed to constant human companionship is left alone. A dog experiences a traumatic event, such as a stressful boarding situation or living in a shelter. A major change in the dogs routine because of a family disruption, such as the loss of a family member or another family pet. ​ How to Treat Minor Separation Anxiety Keep your arrivals and departures short and sweet so the dog isn’t focusing on the events too much. Don’t give long drawn out goodbyes and when you come back greet them with calm affection. Leave them with an item that smells like you like a blanket or shirt. Provide adequate physical and mental stimulation. As well as meeting their exercise needs, be sure to provide enrichment toys for them. When you are away consider using a doggy day care, pet sitter, friends or family. Discuss options with your veterinarian. How to Treat Major Separation Anxiety Give your dog a special place to make their own happy place like a dog proofed room or gated off area of the house. Make sure this area is away from any noise that could be triggering. Play them soothing music made to calm dogs with separation anxiety. Provide them with various enrichment toys, include long lasting chew toys, and add person items with your scent to this area. NEVER use this area as a punishment. Make this your dog's happy place only. No children, no adults, no other pets unless they help to ease your dog's anxiety. Practice small durations of being alone and gradually build up to longer time periods. NEVER punish a dog for behaviors they display because of separation anxiety, this will only increase their anxiety and likely worsen the behaviors. Talk to your veterinarian about medications that may be able to help. PRINT

  • Digging | HAPPY PAWS - PetCare ®

    digging OBEDIENCE TRAINING 101 GUIDE Common Reasons Why Dogs Dig Out of boredom when they’re not getting enough physical and mental stimulation. Digging up dirt to lay in can keep them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They may smell something that’s buried or they may want to bury something. If they see humans digging (gardening) they may want to join in on the fun. Fertilizer is very attractive to some dogs. Some breeds like terriers and labs are instinctually prone to digging. ​ How to Stop Digging ​ ​ ​ The number one way to stop your dog from digging is to supervise them. We have to be there to guide them to make the right decisions. If you catch them in the act of digging, make a loud noise to interrupt the behavior like a loud clap or “uh-uh” sound. Then redirect them to play with an appropriate toy instead. Consider giving them an area of the yard where it is ok to dig. A sectioned off part of dirt or a sandbox will do just fine. If you catch them digging somewhere else interrupt the behavior and redirect them to this spot. Encourage them to dig in this spot by hiding tasting treats or bones for them to find. If they learn they find good things in that spot, that's the spot they'll want to dig in. Be consistent with your rules. If you deem an area that is ok to dig in then that's the rule and they are never allowed to dig anywhere else. Provide your dog with adequate exercise and mental stimulation. Give them a nice game of fetch, a stuffed chew toy, or a bone to entertain themselves. PRINT

  • Leash Walking | HAPPY PAWS - PetCare ®

    Leash Walking OBEDIENCE TRAINING 101 GUIDE The Expectation Leash walking is one of the more difficult skills to teach a dog. It does not come naturally to them to be tied to someone while they are walking, just as we would have a hard time walking if we were tied to the person next to us. This is a skill that takes time and patience but is well worth the training once we accomplish it. How to Teach Walking Nicely on a Leash ​ ​ We recommend a 4ft to 6ft leash. Retractable leashes will allow your dog to pull away from you so until they have this skill mastered we like to make it easy for them to succeed by only giving them a small area to move around in freely. Start in a distraction-free environment such as a living room or your backyard instead of taking them around the neighborhood at first. We want to practice their walking skills in an environment where they have very little to be distracted by and therefore will focus more on us. Put their leash on and begin by encouraging them to be near you. Use a happy voice to praise them when they are standing nicely next to you on the leash or giving you their attention and follow this praise up with tasty treats. Next take a step or two in any direction. Encourage them to follow you and praise and treat them when they do. Start with just a few steps at a time making sure you are telling them what a good boy or girl they are along the way. If they are happily following you, increase the amount of steps you are taking while continuing this process. If they are not following you, do not force them by pulling on the leash or speaking harshly. This will only make them freeze up more or possibly shut down completely. Dogs are masters at picking up on our body language so if we are frustrated, they will sense that. Try to be patient and take note of anything that may be making them nervous in the environment. Dogs can be sensitive to certain flooring, unfamiliar objects, and noises. Allow them time to get familiar with their surroundings, their leash, and collar. If you are unable to get very far in the walking lesson, that's ok. Remember that this is a skill you’ll want them to do well for their whole life so it’s better to take it slow and steady than to rush and create a dog who is fearful of leash walking. Once you are able to walk 10-15 steps in one direction with them following along, you can start to position them where you’d like them to walk next to you on your left or right side. We do this by giving them treats only in that area right next to your side. We call this the “sweet spot.” Rather than reaching out to treat them wherever they are, bring the treats down right next to your side. This will encourage them to stick in that spot. When your dog can walk nicely next to you for short distances in your distraction-free environment you can then move your training sessions to a realistic outside setting. When you move outside remember there are now many more things for them to be distracted by. Go back to taking only a few steps at a time. Keep the same practice of praising and treating them for staying near you and giving you attention. Important Notes ​ If your dog becomes too overwhelmed by the environment to focus on you then give them some time to investigate their environment before starting the training. Allow them to sniff and look around for a brief time. When they’ve adjusted, use your happy voice to get their attention back on you. Be generous with your praise and treats. You will be competing for their attention with all the other smells and sights around them. You have to be the most rewarding thing for them to focus on. If your walking lessons are always full of treats and praise, your dog will grow to love walking right along next to you. Pulling Pulling should be dealt with as soon as possible. The longer the behavior goes on, the longer it will take to correct. Puppies will naturally test their boundaries when learning how to walk on a leash. Adult dogs with a history of pulling will continue pulling for as long as they’re allowed to. Whether you have a brand new puppy who pulls or a 5 year old dog who pulls, now is the best time to start the training. How to Handle Pulling Go back to basics. Start in a low distraction environment like a backyard or an empty field. Practice taking just a few steps at first and encourage them to stay near you with praise and treats. If you are having success you can gradually increase the amount of steps you take. When your dog looks like they are about to start pulling use your happy voice to grab their attention and bring them back towards you. If you’re not able to get their attention back on you, use either the “tree method” or the “this way” method, listed below. Stop Pulling Using the “Tree Method” & “This Way Method” Tree Method​ - ​When your dog starts to pull and you are unable to get their attention back, become a tree. Plant your feet and don’t allow them to move. Whether it’s towards things to sniff, people to greet, dogs passing by, or anything else, don’t allow them to do it if they are pulling. These things will become their rewards. When they relax on the leash then they can sniff and greet until their heart's content. This Way Method​ - When your dog looks like they’re about to start pulling, say “this way” and then walk in the opposite direction. Repeat this every time they are about to start pulling. The idea is that once we start walking unpredictably, they have to pay closer attention to the way we are going and therefore pay more attention to us. This is our opportunity to treat and praise them for giving us their attention which will encourage them to continue walking nicely next to us. Tools to Help with Pulling It’s very important that every time you take your dog for a walk you are consistent with your leash walking rules and that they are never allowed to pull. But since we don’t always have the time to turn every walk or potty break into a walking lesson there are some tools that can help reinforce these rules. We recommend using a harness or a gentle leader. Harnesses can work great to stop some dogs from pulling. For strong pullers, a gentle leader will be your best option. These work similar to the way a head halter on a horse works. They strap around the head and make pulling uncomfortable for the dog but without causing pain. These can be fantastic training tools to help your dog stick to their leash walking manners. We strongly advise staying away from any tools that cause pain including prong collars, e-collars, and choke chains. Research has proven that using these types of tools that cause the dog pain can have serious negative effects including increased aggression. Remember the most important thing is that we stick to the golden rule: they are ​never allowed to pull. If we are consistent with this rule, they will learn over time that it’s not even an option to pull and you will be able to enjoy a lifelong walking companion. PRINT

  • Behavior Benefits of Chew Toys | HAPPY PAWS - PetCare ®

    Behavior benefits of toys & Puzzles OBEDIENCE TRAINING 101 GUIDE The Behavior Benefits Chew toys and puzzle games provide your dog with physical and mental stimulation. Studies show that dogs with adequate mental and physical exercise are not only healthier, they also have less behavior problems. These toys provide your dog with something to focus on and direct their energy toward which will in turn reduce those unwanted behaviors such as barking, whining, digging , and being destructive. Decreases Stress, Anxiety, & Boredom Chewing releases serotonin in your dog's brain which produces a calming effect. When dogs are anxious they will often seek out things to chew to relieve those feelings. Boredom can also lead to these similar unwanted behaviors. When dogs are bored they'll find things to fill their time that us humans don’t always approve of like digging up the garden, jumping on our house guests, or barking at everyone who passes the house. Having something to entertain themselves with while they are at the same time relieving anxiety is a win-win situation. Chewing Helps Teething & Prevents Dental Issues Chewing eases painful gums in teething puppies. Freezing a chew toy is a great way to provide your puppy with a toy to both occupy their time and soothe their gums. Chewing will also provide dental benefits throughout your dog's adult life. Chewing scrapes away tartar and cleans teeth which leads to healthier mouths and better breath. Picking the Right Chew Toys or Puzzle for Your Dog Instead of feeding your dog from a food bowl use your dog’s daily kibble in a toy that will provide entertainment for hours. We recommend toys like Kongs, Treat Balls, or Bob-a-Lot toys . Puzzle games like snuffle mats and puzzle feeders are also fantastic options. Find out which toys your dog really loves. You’ll be able to use these throughout their entire life to help with their behavior and boredom. Beware of toys with pieces they can chew off and swallow. Monitor the size of chew toys and bones that reduce in size over time. Be sure to take them away when they get small enough to swallow. Using your dog's daily diet for these toys instead of additional treats is not only cost efficient, it makes your dog's weight easier to maintain. Keys for Kongs Kong toys are undoubtedly one of the best chew toys out there. Their design makes them indestructible to most dogs and easy to fill with food. When stuffing a Kong make sure it’s not packed too tight. You can start with some loose kibble to make it easy for your dog at first. To create a long lasting chew toy you can stuff it with some of their kibble that’s been moistened with water and then pop it in the freezer overnight. In the morning you’ll have a tasty treat that will last for hours. Keeping a handful of these toys in the freezer will make leaving them with a self-entertaining toy an easy thing to fit into your morning routine. Kongs can be stuffed with peanut butter, biscuits, honey, cheese, and many other treats. But keep in mind your dog’s weight management when selecting your stuffing. PRINT
