2017 PUPS Positve Challenge Results will be out soon!

2017 PUPS Challenge result will be out real soon. What you going to train? You are going to train as a Flyball Dogs and eventually we will form a NEW CrazyK9 Flyball in Singapore. Look at the previous CrazyK9 Flyball Team. Do you want to join in the fun? Keep watch on this space.

It's the festive, Teach Your Dog to Greet People Politely

PUPS Blog Series - It's the festive season, teach your dog to greet people politely.

With the Eve and Actual Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year Celebrations, we will have many guests coming to our home. Have you been ashamed that Benji exuberant meeting at your guests? Or Benji barking his heads off at your guests? We need to teach Benji to Sit Politely to greet our guests.

Having a trained dog is always a welcome asset to your family. If your dog has been doing the extra opposites, you not to get it sorted as your season of guests flooding to your home is ever near.

What can we do about it? Is there a quick fix? Yes, you need to know the motivation of Benji's exuberant greetings. The motivation is usually over excitement and sometimes lack of socialisation.
 


In Reward based concept, we will teach incompatible behaviours rather than punishing our dog. Reason? Have you taught your dog good behaviour when he meets another person or dog? If you have not, you can't punish your dog for something you don't even know how should he react to.

5 incompatible behaviours I will train my dog when it comes to greeting guests at home.

1. Teach the placement behaviour to counteract your dog barking at the door,
2. Teach a Down position to counteract the jumping behaviour,
3. Teach a Settled behaviour to counteract chasing to the door to greet,
4. Teach a Sit position, to communicate clearly that if you sit politely and wait, the guests will greet and reward the dog, and
5. Teach a placement behaviour, to counteract begging at the dinner table.
 
Start working on these incompatible behaviours before the real tests that come shortly. 


Here is the Rule of Thumb

1. If you want a behaviour to keep repeating or coming back, make the situation POSITIVE and FUN, and

2. If you don't want a behaviour to keep repeating, make the situation NEGATIVE.

Don't sit there and wait for a miracle, I believe GOD will help people who will help themselves. Start on the right track with the simple objective, you will soon realise it is actually very easy to train your dog.

If you do it correctly, TRAINING should be a BREEZE.




As always have fun and stay positive!

To be honest I am not a believer of Dog Run. Studies have shown, Dog Parks is the #1 area that dogfight occurred. 

Why? this is because Dog Run Users are usually the regulars. Most of the Dog Runs I went, very often, the pack orders have been established. And any newcomers are regarded as an intruder. 

And the most dangerous point is the Entry-Exit. Due to space constraints, both Entry and Exit are the usually the same gate.  If you are observant, you will realize most tensions erupt in this area. 

Here are my 6 suggestions how you can reduce your risk of dogfight at the Dog Run;

1. Observe the vibes outside the dog run, if you foresee any unusual tensions it might be better not to bring your dog in,

2. If you want to enter, quickly move through the gates and proceed to move to the inner area of the dog run,

3. Maintain the leash on your dog and allows your dog to settle down (5-10 mins working on basic commands),

4. Release your dog, however, keep a look out for your dog whereabout at all time,

5. Practise recalls in an interval of 15-30 mins to get your dog always to respond to you and to be mindful of your presence, 

6. Last by not least, recall your dog the final time and leash before leaving the dog run.

I know that Dog Runs are great venues to catch up with friends and fellow dog lovers, but I like to remind you, it is your duty to ensure your dog's safety and well beings. If you do not pay attention to the whereabouts of your dog on the run, how are you going to ensure his safety?

The Safety Net of our dog is the Owner and I expect full responsibility from all dog owners. To You, He is Just a Dog, But to Your Dog, You Are Everything!

Have fun & stay positive!
