Dog Training Made Easy Start Early And Often!

Dog Training Made Easy Start Early and Often!



Dogs barking, biting and chewing everything on the face of the planet, I think everyone who has owned a dog has gone through what I have. Most people in their life at one time or another owns a dog. Man s best friend as it s become to be known, but unfortunately that isn t always the case. No matter what breed you have, dog obedience is always something each owner must tackle.

While some dogs are more capable of being trained than others, all require that special bond to be built between them and their owner. Unfortunately dog training is something which a lot of owners neglect doing from a young age, and once the dog has established behavioral patterns, training it at a later age can be difficult.

I have owned a dog my whole life. Having a dog around that doesn t judge you, but just wants to be your friend 24/7 is something you can never get from humans. I have found with whatever breed I have had (German Sheppard, Maltese and Labrador), all have needed to be trained from a puppy in order to get the best results.

It is important to open up a line of communication between yourself and your dog, by doing this you are establishing a rapport with the dog as its owner and commander, and stating that he/she must follow your commands.

There are many areas in which can cause problems and I always concentrate on:

Dog aggression

Dogs which bite


Interaction with children

All of these were very important aspects to having a well-trained dog. It is important to establish quickly that you are the leader and the dog must follow you. Like any interaction, whether it is between humans, or between pets and humans, any species which see s signs of weakness, will try to exploit it. So make sure you are confident with what you want your dog to do.

If you have children, both training the pet and the child how to interact is important. Any dog which is poked, hit or had its tail pulled could react badly towards a child. So educating the children, who are around the dog, is almost as important as training the dog itself.

Don t get discouraged or overwhelmed simply training the dog to be obedient and to follow simple commands from a young age can solve many problems which can occur at a later time.

So be confident, assertive and remember to reward to the dog for good behavior. It is more likely to realize it is doing right if it is rewarded, and more likely to repeat this behavior. Most of all have fun with your dog.

Learn how a frustrated dog owner made dog obedience simple at to have your own well trained dog. His simple methods will make all the difference for you and your pet

New Zealand dog saves five children; receives international attention

Saturday, May 5, 2007

A small, “nicely trained” Jack Russell Terrier gave his life to help save a group of five children from two aggressive pitbulls last Sunday in Manaia, Taranaki, New Zealand.

The dog named George is being described as a hero, gathering a huge amount of international media interest in the process.

The dog suffered massive injuries that the vet had never seen to that extent before, which resulted in 69-year-old Alan Gay, the dog’s owner, allowing George to be put down. He now regrets this decision.

The two pitbulls rushed at the group of children that George was following to the dairy, including a four-year-old. George then started barking loudly at the pair of dogs, and put himself between the dogs and the children. Mr Gay told Fox News, “If it wasn’t for George, those kids would have copped it.”

Despite having received offers of new dogs, Mr Gay has said that he will wait a while before getting another Jack Russell Terrier, as he is afraid it could happen again.

It is also believed that the two attacking dogs, which have been destroyed, were bred to be aggressive, including being fed the drug methamphetamine, commonly referred to as “P” in New Zealand.

Mr Gay has said that Manaia has had a problem with stray dogs before, but he never expected that George would become a victim.

One story ran in USA Today, which prompted over 120 comments, and one reader to personally call Alan Gay expressing their condolences.

Responding to the huge amount of media interest, Mr Gay said, “This really surprises me, and it’s marvellous. I never expected this … I’m surprised it got around the world as it did.” He says he has been getting a huge amount of phone calls from the media and the public. “The phone has been going since about half past seven this morning. Every time I hang up it rings again. It’s worn out; I might have to get a new one.”

Whale spotted in river Thames, Central London

Friday, January 20, 2006

A 15ft (4.5 meter) northern bottle-nosed whale has been spotted swimming in the river Thames in Central London, UK. The “Thames whale” managed to swim up past the Thames barrier and under many bridges, reaching as far as Chelsea before it turned around just before Albert Bridge.

TV news helicopters scrambled to provide live TV footage of the whale, and many spectators lined the banks of the river.

The whale is said to be looking healthy, although some fear that the whale may beach itself as it tried to do before rescuers forced it back into the middle of the river. Normally found in the North Atlantic, there have been sightings of a second whale near Southend.

A vet, having examined the whale, reported that the animal was not swimming purposefully, has some damage around the head area and is losing blood from numerous cuts on its underside. It was last seen floating downstream with the current; its present whereabouts are unknown.

US dog attack owner charged with involuntary manslaughter

Friday, March 25, 2005 A Spotsylvania County woman, whose three dogs allegedly attacked and killed her elderly neighbor, was freed Wednesday by posting a $10,000 bond. Dianna Large, 36, received one felony charge of involuntary manslaughter and three misdemeanor charges in an indictment issued last week.

In her first appearance before a judge, she answered Circuit Court Judge William H. Ledbetter questions with simple “Yes sir.” and “No sir.” responses. The short hearing, held Thursday, formalized the charges against her. The involuntary manslaughter charge, a first in the severity of punishment being sought on a dog owner in the Virginan state of USA, carries a maximum penalty of 10 years.

State procecutor Wiliam Neely said that Large knowingly let her three Pit Bull dogs run free, and that an animal control agency person had warned her to keep them under better control. She also a violated a county ordinance requiring owners of dangerous dogs to post a warning sign to visitors. The prosecution also noted that none of the three male dogs were neutered.

The Animal Control Department of Virginia maintains a dangerous dog registry. It contains a list of owners whose dogs are deemed dangerous to society. The link to the registry was moved to a more prominent position on the county web page following the attack.

Good Nutrition For Children Helping Them For A Good Start}

February 7, 2017 – 3:04 am

Submitted by: Arati Shah

What does healthy nutrition for children mean? Eating patterns built during infantile age serves as a basis for life. What we eat early on shapes our overall health along with metabolism and our brain. As far as children are concerned, you might only require making a few small changes to enhance the nutritional profile of your child and ensure a lifetime of healthy as well as pleasurable eating habits. After all, nutrition has an important impact on all aspects of childhood growth, development and health. This includes:

Maintaining a healthy body weight

Avoiding health problems related to surplus body fat

Gut health and brain development and behaviou

Surplus Weight

Carrying surplus body fat is in no way a healthy sign and it sets the stage for both childhood and adult diseases. For instance, around 70% of obese teens mostly suffer from cardiovascular disease in adulthood. Once a body becomes overweight at a crucial developmental period, its very difficult to change. Good habits such as health and physical activity established in early life certainly has positive effects for years to come.

What role does Nutrition plays in being overweight?

Which kids are at most risk of being overweight or obese? Those who primarily consume calorie dense foods; thus a proper planning taking into consideration the nutritional requirement of the child, is essential to lessen the risk of being obese or overweight. An experienced child nutritionist or a dietician can play an important part here.

Whats the Socioeconomic Status?

Poor child nutrition is indeed a complex social problem, as its tied to geography and economics. For example, in industrialized countries such as the US or the UK, the kids eating low-quality, energy dense foods are more likely to be poor as these foods tend to be cheaper and are easily available. On the other hand, in developing countries where poor children still eat conventional diets and local agricultural staples, its the rich kids whose families can afford to have energy dense foods.

Ways to enhance your childs nutrition

Being a parent, you try to make some healthier choices for yourself and your family, and its then that the problem of right childhood nutrition can seem overwhelming. This is when you start thinking where to begin? You can begin with some simple basics:

Opt for whole, minimally processed foods and explain to them gently the dangers of processed foods that are particularly marketed keeping children in mind

Make sure fruits and vegetables are a part of your childs daily diet

Instead of relying on vitamin, mineral and protein supplements try getting nutrients from a varied, whole foods diet

Help your children regulate their appetite and hunger signs with mindful eating

Encourage active participation in planning of meals

Do not force feed them or use food as a reward or piunishment

Its important to adopt healthy habits yourself, so that your children have a role model for their own behaviou

Ensuring that your child has a good and balanced diet and he/she gets all the nutrients from it is the sign of a responsible parent. However, due to lack of time or any other reason, parents often dont pay heed towards their child nutrition which lays the foundation towards a good life. Nevertheless, consultation from an expert nutritionist can also be a good option to go by.

An account of the Esperanza Fire from an animal rescuer

As families fled their homes in the early morning hours on Thursday October 26, there was no warning. The Esperanza Fire southeast of Los Angeles and West of Palm Springs, California, had ballooned under the influence of Santa Ana winds to more than 19,000 acres as of the morning of October 27. No time to get the animals, no time for crates or even a leash. Sadly, owners left behind not only their horses, lamas, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, but also their dogs and cats.

Many of the families who did manage to evacuate their pets found themselves in the parking lot at the Fellowship in the Pass Church Red Cross Shelter where a MuttShack Animal Rescue team caught up with them.

Pam Anderson, Director of the emergency Red Cross shelter said that many people with animals had come and left.

The air was thick with smoke, and ash was raining down on the parking lot where dog owners, not able to take their dogs into the shelter were camping out in pup tents and in their cars.

Those who could afford it checked themselves into pet friendly hotels in nearby towns.

Some were prepared. Jane Garner, a small dog breeder was able to get all her animals out, and had set up her puppy runs alongside her RV in the parking lot. Others were not doing too well, having left home without as much as a leash.

The same scenario played out at the Red Cross shelter at Hemet High School. Animals were being boarded in vans, trailers and cars and small travel crates.

When MuttShack Animal Rescue arrived, a small fracas had sent several dogs off in different directions, running out of the school parking lot down busy streets necessitating an instant rescue response.

The Incident Command for the Esperanza Animals, Ramona Humane Society in San Jacinto welcomed MuttShack‘s offer to help at the shelters.

Ramona Humane Society had recently published a notice in their Newsletter about the newly passed “PETS Act” and warned owners not wait until a major disaster such as an earthquake or fire to prepare. “Be proactive to ensure that your pet will be taken care of.”

MuttShack and PetSmart Charities set up ad hoc facilities for the animals at both shelters.

The Red Cross shelter, run by Madison Burtchaell of the Orange County Red Cross was very accommodating about allowing a small emergency pet shelter adjacent to the School.

Barbara A. Fought of PetSmart Charities, an organization that works with animal welfare organizations and provide assistance in disasters, provided crates and emergency supplies.

MuttShack and Red Cross volunteers, Martin St. John, Tom Hamilton, and Steve Meissner helped assemble the crates to secure a safe environment for evacuated pets.

It was a great relief for evacuees who had camped out in the parking lot to finally leave their vehicles and relax at the shelter, setting up their cots to grab some sorely needed rest.

Firefighters and residents reported loss of wildlife and animals. The Esperanza fire burned 34 homes, consumed 40,000 acres and cost five Firefighters their lives before it was contained four days later on October 30. Firefighting operations cost nearly $10 million.

MuttShack Animal Rescue is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization active in disasters and dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and care of lost or discarded dogs, cats and other animals.

Three die in Cornwall, UK caravan park of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning

February 7, 2017 – 2:02 am

Monday, February 25, 2013

Carbon monoxide poisoning is thought to have been the cause of the deaths of three people and one Jack Russell dog in a caravan park in Cornwall in South West England. Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) were alerted to the incident in Tremarle Home Park in the town of Camborne at 12:56 UTC on Saturday.

We have seen a big increase in the number of carbon monoxide incidents in Cornwall over recent years

Inspector David Eldridge said Devon and Cornwall Police were alerted to the caravan park incident after “a helper had been unable to get a reply from an elderly couple who lived in the caravan”. He said that upon their arrival, “We were able to see that there was a figure sat in a chair but they were unresponsive to knocks at the door.” CFRS workers called to the area “forced entry into the property and found that the three occupants were all dead”, Inspector Eldridge said. A hazardous material advisor was also present at the scene in North Roskear. The Health and Safety Executive is now investigating the incident but the deaths are not considered as being of a suspicious nature.

The three fatalities have been identified as Audrey Cook, aged 86, her husband Alfred, aged 90, and Maureen, their 46-year-old daughter. David Biggs, a member of Camborne Town Council, said the incident came as “a shock” to him; Tremarle Home Park is “a well established facility and is very well run”, according to him. Biggs described the loss of three lives as an “appalling tragedy”.

The incident came five days after Cornwall Council announced its Family Placement Service would launch a joint venture with Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service to place carbon monoxide detectors in the houses of foster carers. The programme, entitled ‘Be Gas Safe’, has seen 200 carbon monoxide detectors and 2000 leaflets to raise awareness about carbon monoxide being given to CFRS. Mark Blatchford, Group Manager of CFRS, said: “We have seen a big increase in the number of carbon monoxide incidents in Cornwall over recent years”. He described carbon monoxide detectors as being “as important as a smoke alarm as it provides a valuable early warning”.

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous, colourless, tasteless and odourless gas which is created when such carbon-based fuels as oil, gas, coal and wood are not completely incinerated. The human body’s capacity to hold oxygen in the blood can be reduced by inhalation of the gas, which in turn may cause death. The Gas Safe Register has said dizziness, headaches, queasiness, lack of ability to breathe, fainting and losing consciousness are all symptoms of a person experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning.

Submitted by: Kaitlin Ertha

Let’s deal with it: anti-getting older goods are NOT low-cost – geez, often they are not even Sensible! Positive, we all want the most recent and biggest skincare goods, but we shouldn’t have to Invest a million to look like a mill.Here are ten wallet-helpful suggestions to take into account from The Anti-Getting older Analyst:one) Usually Inquire for SamplesJust take it from the sample QUEEN and do not be shy: Attempt ahead of you Buy. I imply, how do they anticipate you to shell out hundreds of dollars for a products when you do not know if you will totally enjoy it? Some cosmetic shops like Sephora are great about this – they will make you a little trial sample of the cream you are intrigued in. Whilst you will not likely get enough products to see extraordinary outcomes, you will get an idea if you dig the odor, texture and feel. Visit your fave cosmetic counter at the office shops and ask for samples. (Ok, often this relies upon on the mood of the clerk, but retain hoping.) They could even fill a small trial jar for you if you are good and as long as you do not walk in there with a giant tupperware container. Notify them you want to try out it for a few days at property, or try out it overnight and most product sales clerks will understand. Usually ask ask ask!The best way to ambigu your samples? Just take a pal! (Make positive it can be a guy or you will have to wrestle your BFF to the floor!)The beauty of sample accumulating: you get to try out goods and when you are out of your costly jars, you raid your trial-sized stash to save income!2) Timing is Almost everythingThe 3 small phrases any skin-care or beauty addict Loves to hear are: “Gift WITH Obtain!”If you time out your massive purchases to present time, you can purchase what you were going to purchase in any case and walk out with some good further goodies. Suggestion: One particular time, in the course of Clinique present time, I phoned my purchase in. Given that it was pre-ordered, I not only got the present with purchase, but they threw in some further extras like lipsticks and blushes as well! SCORE!Be in the know! If you indicator up for a newsletter from the cosmetic firms (Estee Lauder, Clinque, Lizzy Arden, and so on.) they will give you the heads-up on when they have present time in your area! Straightforward Peezy.I’ve seen that the same promotional presents rotate at the office shops, so if you miss 1 at Bloomies, a few weeks later Macy’s will have the same present. Lightbulb second: so, that also means, if you generally purchase a load of goods, you can “hold back” and purchase just the qualifying amount at 1 office keep, then go to the other a few weeks later and have yet another present bag of goodies for the workplace or to give absent to a pal! Everyone enjoys a freebie!3) Buy Exactly where You Get a Cash-back AssureYou had an allergic response to a products, so tossing it is your onlychoice, right? REWIND! Just before you purchase, try out to get a take care of on the store’s return policy – if they have a “no refund policy,” at the extremely least, they ought to aid you trade your products for yet another. CVS and Rite-Assist now have income-back ensures on all cosmetics such as moisturizers. I’ve taken back a Perricone lip products to Sephora because the tube was defective and exploded in my purse. In fact the woman in front of me was doing the same factor! And we did them a fave by returning it – now Perricone understands that their packaging sucks (or did) and it requirements to be transformed. So, retain that receipt!Or purchase from an on-line keep this kind of as SkincareRX which offers a entire income back promise on all purchases.4) Never Be a Identify Brand name SnobIt is the Substances that make any difference, not the title. You can discover very low-expense choix that have the same substances as office keep brand names. Attempt holistic vitamin shops which often have jars of cream with no title – they merely are named “Vitamin C” or “DMAE and alpha lipoic acid cream” or have “off-brand name” names. Even drug shops like CVS and Rite-aid have their personal brand names of “copycat” formulas of Olay Regenerist for instance – if the substances are the same, why not? In simple fact, it can be these CVS and Rite-aid brand names that go on sale usually for purchase 1, get the 2nd fifty percent off!five) Be a Guinna PigBe on the lookout for anyone in want of your deal with. Sure, YOU, Sweetie, you are in Desire! Sometimes neighborhood firms want females with skin concerns for their infomercials or focus teams. All you have to do is try out their products at property for a few weeks in trade for an on-camera interview. I truly got free of charge Restalyne injections (Significant SCORE!) and wound up on the Physician 90210 show all because I answered an advert from a skin doctor on Craigslist! Goes to show,you just never know!6) Great to The Very last DropGuilty of acquiring goods when the jars and tubes you have at property are still entire and wonderful?All right, I admit it – me as well. I as soon as had an Emmy present bag Complete of goods but HAD to have one thing I just learned at a spa. It is good to have choices, but try out to resist the urge to purchase More and try out to use up the goods you have initial. Patience and acquiring correctly in the initial place is key. Waste not want not…oh, and invest far more Make Your Personal ItemsYou do not have to be a chemist to concoct your personal slathery goodness in the privacy of your personal property. And if you are addicted to shops like Bath and Physique Operates or even the smellies at Victoria’s Secret, a property recipe as soon as in a whilst will save you TONS, specifically given that they want $8.00 for like 4 ounces!It does not appear as complex as you might think. Most recipes call for a skin oil (grapeseed oil, coconut oil or almond oil are great choices) and an emulsifier – generally beeswax- which retains the oil from spoiling and extend your lotion’s shelf daily life. Then you will want some jars or containers and you might be golden!There are tons of recipes and tutorials on-line, or you can get a book from the library, or purchase 1. Suggestion: Buy a recipe book for a pal and probably she’ll make you a batch next X-Mas!!You might even invite a few BFF’s more than, split the expense of supplies and make it a enjoyable kitchen area laboratory night. Just go effortless on the wine!8) Have An Anti-Getting older MethodAnti-age skincare makers Adore to notify us we can’t are living with no their products. Shhh, odds are, we can. The smart way to purchase is to purchase skincare with your life style and skin concerns in mind. You Never have to purchase a entire line of toner, cleanser and moisturizer. Make investmentsthe dollars for your dilemma regions – if your aim is firming, invest a small far more on a firming products, and use significantly less-costly, great-ingredient cleansers and toners to save.I like Olay Specialist RX a good deal because they offer a small “starter kit” — Olay ProX Specialist Anti-Getting older Routine, 3-Piece Starter Kit — best to try out with no a significant significant investment (given that the larger sized goods are far more costly). You get:* Wrinkle Smoothing cream, one fl oz * Age Repair Lotion with SPF thirty, one fl oz * Eye Restoration Complex, .3 fl oz9) It is All About The Sale!For drug keep goods, coupon codes rule! Ulta usually has great product sales and shops like Marshalls and TJ Maxx and Nordstrom’s Rack have a beauty section, in which you can often snag office keep brand names like Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden and far more at deep discounts!Here’s one thing you could not know: COSTO carries a lot of Olay, Elizabeth Arden and far more. But, the beauty there, is that you get particular larger packaging or TWO jars for the common value of 1 elsewhere. Women, they have Strivectin-SD there, which is the cream initially for stretch marks which has been verified to aid with facial wrinkles as effectively as stretch marks. Oh, and indeed, you get TWO tubes for the value of 1 elsewhere at Costco for $149.ninety nine. I also see Costco sells Prevage MD for $ninety nine.ninety nine! Gosh, I Adore Adore to save!ten) Wish RecordSo you are using your coupon codes, seeing product sales, acquiring generic brand names, reducing back on impulse acquiring, ingredient-comparison shopping, using benefit of presents with purchase. Sheez! Pat yourself on the back, girlies! You’ve performed a fantastic job! Now place the previous of the massive items on your X-Mas or B-Day desire checklist and get a small existing from a liked 1 or household. You Are worthy of IT!
