Muzzle Training Your Dog

There was a time when muzzles were considered the sign of a dangerous dog. Fitting a muzzle was a last resort for owners who could not trust their dog not to attack other dogs and/or people.

Why Breed Matters?

22nd February 2018

Why Breed Matters?

As dog trainers, we are often asked by pet parents what breed of dog they should get. Which is the hardest to raise? The most intelligent? The answer is always the same: it depends. It depends on what type of dog is best for you, your family and your lifestyle. Do you live in a small apartment? You might not want a Mastiff. Love to run long distances? Chances are a Shih Tzu isn't going to be able to keep up with you and a Bulldog doesn't have the respiratory system to endure long distances! read more…
