Interesting Dog Study Performed In Hungary – Canines are


Dogs’ brain scans reveal vocal responses

Oh my goodness, here when I thought I new it all!

Often I talk about you either chose to evolve or revolve, however, it is impossible to stay in the same place because the river of life is in constant movement; we are either moving forward or backward.

Well, here is an article worth reading… from Hungry….

Lead author Attila Andics, from the Comparative Ethology Research Group at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, said:

“We think dogs and humans have a very similar mechanism to process emotional information.”

I have believed this for a long time, however, I am not a scientist nor a doctor of any classification; I simply a woman committed to learning more about our furry friend and sharing it with the masses that also enjoy and adore canines.

Rather than me doing an injustice to the information in this link I am simply going to give you the link so you too can read about this discovery.

Dog Training Tips

Dog Training Tips

Tips for dog training

Keep track of your dog’s behavior with an Activity Log. Every time your dog does something right, reward him. When you are dog training remember your dog is always food driven and dog food motivated.  Keep your dog in a calm and stable environment. Keep the dog away from noisy places like stairs, bars and any other places where there might be an accident. Keep the dog in the same area when you want to train. Be consistent. Always use a 6 foot leather leash and a martingale for dog training. If your dog tries to run away he will not be able to because you have your 6 foot leather leash, or he does something else bad during training, put him back on the training table. Don’t worry about getting your dog to do all the things you want to do with your dog. Training your dog is only a small part of what you can do to make your dog happy and successful. But it is very important that you do the right things with your dog and do not let your dog think that he is not as important as your family.

From 8 weeks old to 16 weeks old feed your puppy by hand 3 times a day and introduce your puppy to 3  new people a day, also during the 8 to 16 weeks dog train your puppy for 15 minutes 3 times a day. From 16 weeks to 6 months you can increase your dog training time to 45 minutes 3 times a day. Never underestimate your puppy’s ability to learn quickly.

I will never forget attending an AKC novice obedience dog training event where the 6 month old German Short Hair Pointer took the Trophy and Blue Ribbon in the novice competition.
