Teaching Your Dog Tricks

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Q: Hi So one of my dogs is pretty hard to train (she is well trained but I like to keep up to date with training and teach her different tricks) anyway she gets bored REALLY easily If she gets bored she walks away Any tips on how to get her to do the trick I want without her getting bored

A: Honestly, this isn’t a question I can answer. I don’t know what you’re trying to teach your dog or why she gets bored. Usually dogs are very attentive when they are receiving attention from their owners. The most obvious answers I’m sure you are already using – keeping treats available as rewards, using verbal praise and petting, etc. There are numerous online videos available for free that may help you. You can also do research about your particular problem by just using your search engine. Your local library or bookstore should also have books available to teach you how to do a better job of training your pet.

Caring for Your Husky Dog

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Q: I am planning to get a sometime and was wonder how can I keep them cool during the summer, I do understand the responsibility and the amount of the exercise required. How could I keep them cool while I am not at home Can I put ice cubes in there water Can I put a kiddie pool on my patio and just leave them outside with water Please and Thank you

A: I have never owned a Husky and have never known anyone who did so I did some research on this question. I found several really good websites that will give you information about the Husky. Apparently, their coat protects them from both heat and cold. As far as leaving them unattended, that doesn’t seem to be a good idea. The Husky is known for being an escape artist and can easily jump 8’ fences and loves to dig under those it can’t jump over. To give you further information, I have listed a couple of the websites I found most interesting. They are:

The Husky seems like a great dog to own. Good luck and enjoy your new pet.
