Dog Walking Tips From Cesar Milan

Dog Walking Tips From Cesar Milan

The Dog Whisper has 6 simple tips to help you be a pro dog walker!

Cesar's Tips:

1. Your dog should be beside or behind you during the walk. Show him you're the leader of the pack.

2. Use a short dog leash. A short leash attached at the top of the neck helps you communicate, guide, and correct your dog.

3. Plan your walks. Set aside time (30 minutes to a hour) every day. It's better for you, and your pup to take a morning walk to help start off your day!

4. Give your dog exploration time. It's good to reward you dog with time to look around and relieve himself. Be sure YOU are the one that decides when the break is over.

5. When you get home, don't stop leading. Have your dog wait patiently while you put away his leash or take off your shoes.

6. Don't share food or water. When you're done with your walk reward him with a meal to show him you have to work for it!

Blind Dog Guided By Seeing Eye Dog

Filed under: ChihuahuaAdoptionDogAwwwww

If blind humans use guide dogs, whose to say a blind dog can't use one either?

Two dogs who have been turned over to Lucky Paws Animal Adoption in Albequerque, New Mexico share a special bond that the adoption agency refuses to break.

Scarlett, a Chuhuahua mix, serves as a guide dog to a blind Miniature Pinscher named Rhett.

The doggy duo were handed over to the adoption agency after their owner was no longer able to take care of them and due to their unique relationship, the agency required potential parents to adopt BOTH of them or none.

Scarlett, who has "never led him astray", wears a bell on her collar that allows her blind "brother" to follow toward food, bathroom spots, and even through doorways, which would be almost impossible otherwise for Rhett.

We're happy to report that the pair is still together after being adopted by a nurse who has experience caring for blind dogs!

Yay! We love happy endings!

Check out the video above for the full news story and to catch a glimpse of the caring canine companions in action.

New Law: A Service Animal Can Be Dog Or Mini-Horse

Filed under: Legal MattersAnimal Rights

Mini horse / service animal

A mini-horse?

Dani Moore uses a rat perched on her shoulder as a service animal to alert her to spasms from a disabling condition. Daniel Greene's service animal is a snake wrapped around his neck to help him predict epileptic seizures.

But these creatures and many others are no longer acceptable as service animals under new federal guidelines issued March 15 by the U.S. Department of Justice for the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The new recommendations limit service animals to dogs and housebroken miniature horses. (mimi-horses?)

The law used to say a service animal could be any animal trained to do a task for an individual. The new policy allowing only dogs and the miniature horses "excludes automatically yard animals, rodents, spiders, snakes, monkeys and cats."

Service animals also now exclude animals that provide emotional support or comfort.

The DOJ says "People were putting vests on pocket pets and calling them service animals," and "Changes were needed."

A number of people with disabilities are concerned about this new law, and so are we.

Why is emotional support not a service? How is a mini-horse better than a cat?

Pet Corrector!

Filed under: TrainingDogCatAmazing

Pet Corrector

Is your dog loud?

Does your dog bark incessantly?

Does your dog steal food, bite furniture, jump up on people, jump on cars, chase cars, chase other dogs or worst of all, NEVER LISTEN TO YOU?!

Here is a new training product that might work for you!

The Pet Corrector is a nozzled container of compressed air that emits a loud “HISS” sound, similar to the sounds a snake, goose or possum would make to scare off predators.

The Pet Corrector has been proven to stop unwanted behaviors in cats and dogs because domesticated pets have an instinctive sensitivity to the sound it creates.

A 50ml container sells for only $9.99 online or at most local pet retailers across the country.

While we can't guarantee this will work for your pet (who can?), if you're canine or feline is giving you trouble, we'd suggest at least giving this a try.

It even comes with a guide to teach U how to use the product to teach your dog how to FINALLY behave!

Check out some reviews for yourself here!
