Heidi always chokes on water when she plays fetch while swimming so I was hoping a little extra buoyancy would help make her favorite game safer! It did and she seems to actually enjoy having the jacket on which was great!

Do you or any of your followers have advice for communicating with a dog that has been debarked? We just inherited a debarked Maltese from a dying relative, and I’ve never had a dog that has had that surgery before. I have two papillons that have not been debarked, and I’m used to dogs that are very vocal. The Maltese, however, seems very timid and obviously quiet. How do I know how he’s feeling or if he’s upset or hurt?

I’m sorry for your loss anon. I have never owned a debarked dog so please take my advice with a grain of salt! Hopefully our followers can give you some hands-on experience.

First off, it’s going to take some time for this new dog to adjust. Going from an older or ill household (ie probably a very quiet household) to a household with multiple people and two resident dogs (ie probably a fairly active or busy household) is a big change for a dog! Be patient and consistent and fair and give the dog a few weeks to adjust. 

Once the dog adjusts and you get to know him, you’ll be able to read his body language a bit better. Obviously for now he’s going to be pretty uncomfortable (see last point) so just give him time. Since he can’t bark at your resident dogs to tell them to leave him alone, offer him plenty of alone time and try to avoid any situations that might cause discomfort (feed him alone, offer him his own water bowls and toys). 

Hopefully as he settles in, you’ll be able to read him better. Some dogs aren’t very vocal by nature so hopefully he will be able to communicate anyway. Good luck!

From young pup to old man, Duke the Boxer was the best boy. He was my big, brave boy. At 12.5 years old he passed over the rainbow bridge.

I loved his sweet and snarky personality, no matter how silly he could be. He was always spoiled rotten and lived a fantastic life. I hope he’s running after squirrels with my other old Boxer, Lightning.

RIP my baby

molosseraptor:

Hey friends! 

You may or may not be aware that I offer certain training services online! Because of my recent financial hole I’m bringing some prices down and putting this offer out there to those of you who seem to enjoy my dog rambling. There are obvious limitations to what can be done via the Internet, but for other things it can be invaluably helpful at lower price point.

Shoot me a message or an email and we can go over some options! 

My specialties are Pet Manners (particularly loose leash walking and adolescent problems), teaching Competition Obedience/Rally to beginners, Fear/Anxiety issues, Problem Prevention in puppies and new to you dogs, and dog-dog interactions, but my experience stretches wider than that. 

PLEASE BE SUPER CLEAR ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON/WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS. I will not take your money for a situation I can’t address in this format or isn’t something I’m familiar enough with to comment on (please don’t ask me about agility because my handling is so bad and just no). If you’re not up front about any issues being presented it will waste both of our time and be money spent on me telling you to go to a local in-person professional. 

Some of the things I offer are: 

Video Review! Have a video of a training session, a run at a trial, a behavior your dog does, a dog introduction or play date/group, something you are having a hard time teaching your dog that you would like an outside professional opinion on? I can do that! You will get a second by second analysis of what I see and some suggestions for moving forward. Prices start at $15 for anything less than 5 minutes of video and go up slightly from there. If you want additional suggestions or training plans on top of the analysis and suggestions given, that will also up the price a bit. 

Skype Sessions! We can talk “face to face” about what’s going on with your dog. This can include anything from teaching a new skill, fixing a broken one, or modifying behavior on a case by case basis. You get my full and undivided attention for an hour, personalized help from the comfort of your home, and a emailed outline of our session and information give at the end. This is great for brainstorming about something you’re having trouble teaching because I can give you “real time” feedback on mechanics/timing and suggestions for a different approach if needed. We can hammer out a desensitization/modification plan for things like nail trimming, car phobias, equipment aversion, house training, etc. in a way that is personalized to you and your dog’s needs. It’s also wonderful for addressing holes in foundation skills or even coming up with a “where do we go from here?” plan if you’re stuck at a certain point with a skill or want some ideas to continue your training. These sessions are $75 for the full hour and subsequent summary email. 

 Dog/Breed Selection! Need help determining if a certain dog or breed fits your lifestyle? Want a dog but have no idea where to start? You found your breed but don’t know how to locate a responsible breeder or rescue/don’t think they’ll give you the time of day? I can help with all of those things and more. Pricing depends on level of involvement and how much personalized help you’re looking for. For the full package offering from my stupidly long breed selection questionnaire to helping you find your breeder, I’m bringing the cost down to $150. 

If any of these sound like something you’re interested in or you want to bounce some ideas off of me to see if there’s something I can help with, message me here or email me at theconsideratecanine@gmail.com. Want references before sending some money my way? I would be happy to put you in touch with current or previous clients who have consented to be used as references. Thanks for getting to the end of this and I hope I can help you meet your training goals!
