Your Dog Feels as Though it is in Prison When You Put it in a Cage or Crate

Wrong!

Confinement means something very different to dogs and humans. To your dog it is an area they recognise as being their very own, and is somewhere they can go, and once there, know they do not have to do anything, such as protect you, alert you or even just keep you company – basically, it’s an area where they don’t have to make any decisions at all.

Many dog owners use crate training as a method of house-training their dog, as well as an area which will keep them safe from any potential dangers around the house.

You should make your dog’s crate a comfortable place for him by adding soft bedding as well some of his toys and once your dog recognises his cr...

Training Dogs – Myth Three. Dog whispering is the best method for training your dog – Wrong!

Dog whispering is probably best known through a television program called “The Dog Whisperer”, featuring Cesar Millan. Although dog whispering is a humane way to train your dog, the belief that it is the most gentle way is not entirely correct.

A lot of its effectiveness is through establishing dominance and ensuring your dog is aware that you are both in charge, and control, as the pack leader. Establishing this often involves using firm physical gestures with your dog. This is done in a way which is not violent, aggressive or potentially harmful to your dog.
