In the “dog world”, the month of May is recognized as Dog Bite Prevention Month. With dogs residing in the majority of American households, it’s rare, if not impossible, to travel through our daily lives without encountering dogs.
This month's dog training topic is counter surfing. If your pooch likes to sneak food off your kitchen counter, be sure to read these tips from our resident dog training guest blogger, Kat Stevens-Stanley.
Food stealing from tabletops and counters is a big complaint that I frequently hear from dog owners. It’s also been a trouble area in my own household. (Yes, despite myths you may have heard, even dog trainers' dogs are still regular dogs!) Counter surfing can be a tricky issue to tackle and is usually the result of human error (leaving dogs access to things you don’t want them to have) or having trouble discovering manageable solutions.
This week is National Dog Bite Prevention Week. No matter how long you've had your dog or how comfortable you are with him, taking the right measures to prevent him from biting another person is so important.
