When we started, Jaque was a wild man! When we finished, he was still a wild man! But, he now does commands that he never did before. He can sit, lay down, heel, leave things alone that he shouldn’t chew on, go to his bed and he stays at the door instead of running out! We want to thank you, Jenna, for what you have helped us do with our little one.

When Rich first started, he was really shy and didn’t have a lot of confidence. We really wanted to work on basic commands, and he has grasped them so quickly. He has exceeded our expectations. Jenna has really helped us bring him out of the box and now you can tell he is a different dog; he’s so happy! We recommend Jenna for anybody that wants their dog to be as happy as ours!

Bathtime Blues — Overcoming the Battle

By | Dog Training Basics, Dog Training Tips | No Comments

Some dogs are drawn to water. They love to be in it, no matter the circumstance. However, the vast majority of dogs do not like being placed in a tub and forced to bathe. This can be extremely frustrating as a dog owner, especially after a long day of playing in the mud or lake. Some pups will climb out of the water again and again; others will bolt from the bathroom and hide just out of reach. Sometimes it can leave us feeling desperate and hopeless. Often times in our frustration, we tend to make the situation even worse…

Frustration in Dog Training

By | Dog Training Basics | No Comments

Frustration is a prominent theme in dog training. Unfortunately, sometimes we cannot communicate effectively with our furry friends in the way that they need. The more we try, the more frustrating it gets, and the angrier we become. This is a dangerous situation! Patience is key in dog training. Our pets learn best through positive reinforcement with lots of love and treats – not us yelling at them! Imagine this: You are sitting at a desk working a math problem that you’ve never seen before. That’s bad enough, right? Now imagine trying to work it with someone breathing down your…

Dog Park Dangers

By | Dog Training Basics, Dog Training Tips | No Comments

Dogs are very receptive creatures. Dopamine excretes within their brain when they see their owner, the same as when two people who are in love see each other. They become excited at the sound of the car door opening because that means “park time!” However, there is a negative side to this as well. Some may cower in fear at things that have hurt them in the past, or even become aggressive when that fear strikes. We have to be extremely careful of the situations that we place our dogs in, especially when they are out of our control. It…

Jenna spent 12 weeks with my dog Happy and me. He was a mess; un-walkable with no knowledge of what good behavior was. We got our Happy from the Central Oklahoma Humane Society as an adult male Pitbull Greyhound mix. He had some severe behavior problems. Nipping, running around like a wild man and he certainly didn’t listen to what anyone said to him. Since working and learning from Jenna, Happy can sit, lay down, heel, stay and come to you. He actually has good eye contact and attention to commands now. I can now take him for walks in the…

Potty Training Trouble

By | Dog Training Basics, Dog Training Tips, Dog Training Tricks | No Comments

Potty training troubles are some of the most common issues found in young dogs, and even some of the older ones, too. It can also be one of the most frustrating problems we come across. And don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Here are some strategies to help teach your pup good habits. If you have a young puppy from the age of newborn to 6 months old, it’s important to know that his bladder is very small, and he might not have the best control of it. How can we work around this? Easy! Take him out every 15…

Crate Games Galore — Getting Your Dog to Love His Crate

By | Dog Training Basics, Dog Training Tips, Dog Training Tricks | No Comments

Quite frequently, stories are heard about dogs who hate their crates. They bite, scratch, whine, resist, and sometimes run away before you can even get the gate shut. But why do dogs hate it so much? Everything about the crate is boring and tedious. Usually our furry friends only associate bad things with their crates. Screaming “go to your crate” and “bad dog” at the top of our lungs can sometimes be our go-to reaction out of frustration, but does this make the dog want to go to his crate? Not at all. However, this doesn’t mean that we can’t change our…

Vacuums, Fireworks and Noises — Oh My!

By | Dog Training Basics, Dog Training Tips, Dog Training Tricks | No Comments

Often times our pups are skittish around the vacuum cleaner or jumpy when fireworks blow up outside. I mean, come on. What the heck is that sucky thing supposed to do, anyway? And that loud BOOM?! What’s that all about! These things don’t make sense to our furry friends and often can cause anxiety — whether we notice it or not. Fear cannot always be easily spotted. We have to learn to look for the signs. Tail tucked, ears back and hair standing up on the hindquarters are all red flags to keep an eye out for. However, learning how to deal…

Indoor Play-day

By | Dog Training Tips, Dog Training Tricks | No Comments

We love to play outside with our dogs and take them on walks… but every now and then, we get those icky, cold, wintry and rainy days! Nobody wants to go out into that kind of weather, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t spend time doing fun things with out dogs! There are all sorts of games that can be played in the warmth of your home. Dogs who don’t use their brain or wear out by running often fill their time with inappropriate chewing and other bad behaviors. Point them towards something good; here’s some stuff to try:…
