Do you want to make some positive changes in your household for your dogs?

Here are four things that many trainers and behaviorist do with their dogs:

1. Crate Train - Keep your dog out of trouble and free from injury.

2. Feed from Toys - Slow down their eating plus provide mental enrichment for them!

3. Use Management Frequently - Prevent the dog's from performing an undesired behavior. This is NOT intended to be a negative thing. It could be as simple as putting the trash cans away so they are not accessible by the dog.

4. Brain Games and Training - A thinking dog is usually a more satisfied, healthy, and better-behaved dog.
