As mentioned above, puppies respond well to positive-reinforcement based training. It is important to acknowledge that dogs cannot possibly know which behaviours are right and which are wrong - it will be up to you to teach them. Take the time to show your puppy what you want them to do and reward them with a treat, praise, or a game each time they do the right thing.
According to the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), “When your dog is relaxed and happy, his eyes will be their normal shape.” Pay attention to the way your dog’s eyes look when doing different activities or during different times of the day. You’ll start noticing the differences and will be able to read your dog’s mood better.
Happy Dogs is a wonderful place for dogs that love to be around other playful pups. Many of my pet sitting clients also use Happy Dogs and it's nice having such a wonderful local business I can refer to when our clients want more or need different services. And even better - having a great working relationship with Dionne and Mike to where we can pass referrals back and forth.
We met the Happy Healthy Dog team at our regular daschund meet a couple of months ago and decided to try these very well balanced, human quality meals that are specifically tailored to your dog’s weight. Paisley our pup just adores each meal. Love how our weekly delivery arrives promptly in its insulated chilled box, and is always consistently excellent. Couldn’t recommend Happy Healthy Dog more highly
Ideally, dogs should be taken to council-designated areas where they can be safely let off the leash to run free. It is important to use these specifically designated areas not only to ensure their own safety (preventing the risk of being hit by a car) but also the safety of farm livestock and wildlife which can be threatened by a dog let loose in their habitat.
Operating a 5 star business myself I know how important is to offer quality service and get great reviews... I chose this business because of their great review standing. Everyone was exceptionally nice friendly and the environment was beautiful inside.. they did a fantastic job on my Pomeranian. The pricing was completely Fair. This was also the first time coming to this business. I am now a lifetime customer for sure. Allison was exceptionally nice to all the customers and you could tell she loves all of the animals and the waiting room was busy.. You simply can tell everyone loved their job.. I have used a couple other places before and I was somewhat happy with them. But I found this place to be the spot to take care of my fur baby. Thank you all!
It is also important that dogs are socialised with people and other dogs from an early age. There are a range of activities dog owners and their four-legged friends can get involved in such as fly ball, agility and lure coursing. Consult your local council about activities available in your area. RSPCA training and information sessions on pet behaviour are also regularly staged at Burwood East.

The simplest and most economical diet consists of a mixture of meat (raw, cooked or canned) and dry food. Premium dry food such as Hill's Science Diet (available at RSPCA clinics and shelters) are balanced and also good for your dog’s teeth. In order to maintain healthy teeth and gums, a mixture of both soft and hard food should be provided.What is wrong with just feeding my dog meat?

Confidence – At your local kennel, your dog will face variables. For instance, you won't know whether the rostered staff have ever even met or cared for your pup before. This isn't a problem you'll face with Mad Paws' Dog Daycare. Rather, your trusted Pet Sitter will make the effort to familiarise themselves with your dog and provide tailored care.
When it is time to sleep, does your dog pick a comfy spot and drift carefree into his dreams of chasing squirrels or eating bacon? A happy, relaxed dog will sleep well. Stressed dogs wake up, get up, pick a new spot, fall asleep and then repeat. They are not relaxed enough to get into a deep sleep, which could cause health troubles. Talk to a vet and/or a dog trainer about how to get your dog relaxed and happy so he can sleep well.
