Maybe someone could help me please. I have a 14 week old yellow lab. He has no problem holding himself in the crate and most of the time when loose in the house. However, when he does have a urination mistake when loose in the house it’s always on his own bed. No other place. It has only been 3 times since we got him a month ago. But it’s 3 times too many. We have now taken his bed away but I feel bad that he doesn’t have a comfortable place to lay. Has anyone had this problem or if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to help. Thank you so much!
This is because they may well have been given plenty of experiences in the past where they were highly rewarded for disobedience, usually simply because the owner did not know how to control the consequences of the dog’s behavior.
To be totally honest, I drool over working dogs. I have always been a sucker for Border Collies and I may have been sold on the program just with the first siting of Jimmy’s dog Dolly. Even so, I sat through the demo with awe as Dolly and Tea worked. And then to make it really cemented in my mind that this was what I wanted for Thunder, Jimmy had me put a collar on my boy and we worked him with the start of “come.” I had only had Thunder for a week at this point and he didn’t even know his own name but Jimmy showed me how to get him to focus on me and do what I asked. So we signed up. After a couple of lessons, Jimmy asked me if I was interested in becoming a trainer and working for him. I didn’t have any real experience with dog training, but prior to adopting Thunder, I had been considering learning how to train dogs. It seemed rather perfect that Jimmy should ask me this. I mulled it over for a little while before agreeing, but I’m truly glad that I did. I have continued with Thunder’s training and have applied my knowledge to train my foster dog. I also look forward to training my own demo dog and working with clients to help them have a positive relationship with their own pups.
Unfortunately, in spite of good intentions, many times the dog will suffer and the owner will lose out on a first class relationship with their dog. Why? Because the owner didn’t take the time to learn how and why the Ohio State K-9 College is superior to other schools.

Then put more efforts into house training her if you can. Lots of praise and reward every time she potty’s in the correct place, and for a while you have to prevent her pottying in the wrong place. You particularly need to prevent her soiling in her crate, so for a while this may mean setting an alarm and getting up in the middle of the night for a while to take her to the toilet spot until she gets out of the habit.
Giving in to your puppy’s every need is not a good thing. As your puppy grows, so will his need to assert himself. Puppies often choose mealtimes as a battleground. But giving in to him is a mistake. You need to make sure he knows that you won’t respond to his every demand.
Dog trainers may be employed by large pet stores or dog training academies, or they may work independently. If you volunteer at an animal shelter or apprentice with an experienced trainer, you may be able to find job leads through the contacts you make in these positions. If you want to work independently, you will need to advertise your services and network with the animal care community in your area, including shelters and veterinarians.
No matter how accomplished your instructor, always remember that your dog relies on you for his safety and well-being. If you are uncomfortable about doing something you’re told to do, explain your concerns and ask for an alternative approach. In addition, be cautious about who you allow to handle your dog. Many obedience instructors like to demonstrate techniques with dogs in their classes, and most of the time there’s no problem. But if you have any reservations about allowing an instructor to take your dog from you, just say you’d rather not. And if you are uncomfortable about the instructor’s knowledge, attitude, or methods, find a new class. Again, even if you walk away from part of the cost of the class, that’s better than damaging your dog’s trust in you and other people.

The Labrador Retriever is one of the oldest recognized dog breeds. Over the years they have also been known as the Lesser Newfoundland, St. Johns Dog and The Black Water Dog – these days they are simply called a Lab.
Consequences must be consistent When training your comment créer un entreprise you-and everyone else who interacts with her-should respond the same way to things she does every time she does them. For example, if you sometimes pet your dog when she jumps up to greet you but sometimes yell at her instead, she’s bound to get confused. How can she know when it’s okay to jump up and when it’s not?
We generally characterize these dogs as “soft” and tend to give them away as pets when they flunk the electric-collar program. Thus we are tending to remove from the breeding pool dogs that exhibit this valuable trait. This trait of “cooperative nature” is of extreme importance to the average hunter, because the average hunter is usually quite unfamiliar with dog training.
Unfortunately, Labs love to smell, they love to track and when the fridge opens up there’s a whole ton of smells and tasty ones at that, seeping out. Your best bet is to claim the space in the kitchen as yours. Do not allow your puppy in the kitchen when your in the kitchen. That will also cause problems in the future if you allow this to continue. In most kitchens, the floor material will change and that line is the first place to start, once you cross that line, don’t allow them to enter with you, make it so they can not enter over this line. Be patient as well, 12 weeks old, he still is learning his new world and wants to explore. But work on this not only when you have to be in the kitchen, make it part of the training. If he stays outside that line award him with a small treat and great praise. A great treat I use for the kitchen is Sweet potato or Peanut Butter ice cubes, Keeps their attention for a while and it’s not the fatty processed treats you buy at the store. Hope this helps and I wish you all the best. Also remember to drain your puppies gas tank through a good steady exercise regime for better training results and a healthier Lab.
Play safely while you supervise training. Never play roughly with a puppy that bites. Rough play will only encourage this behavior and strongly establish it in the puppy’s mind. Never use your hands as toys. You should also closely watch children playing around or with the puppy. Kids are not equipped to train a puppy and injuries can happen.
My dog LOVES dog school! It is easy to get her there and pick her up at any time, the people are so friendly, they pay attention to her and have noticed things I missed, the price is great, my dog loves the socialization and she is happily exhausted when I pick her up. I think it has taken my sweet, happy dog and made her sweeter and happier!

The Labrador is the breed I most commonly work with, and I am alarmed at the trends I see. It has become the general custom to force-fetch train every dog. This corrects any tendency to drop birds, mouth birds or run off to the bushes with birds. It also masks the genetic tendencies toward those behaviors.
I thought I had posted this review like a year ago when I wrote it but I somehow forgot to do so. An update from this review (my bulldog is almost 2 now ) is that he still loves going to Dog School and every time we day “Are you ready to go to Dog School?” he jumps up from the couch and runs to the front door aka he highly recommends this place! I’ll try to video tape it, it’s hilarious.
