Training Your Dog
Training your dog means that you are teaching your dog the basic rules and things that should be expected by you. These can include the common rules such as not peeing in the house, walking closely on the lead, and listening to commands when they are spoken. This is something that virtually all owned dogs deal with, and you will be hard pressed today to find an owned dog that has not had some form of training. These common guidelines are what make the dog special in the field of family pets, in that they rely on us for so much yet are intelligent enough to understand what we want from them.
Works Both Ways
When it comes to training your dog, this is something that basically works both ways. You will relay to the dog what it is you expect of them, and this will give you the chance to understand what your dog understands. This is a bond, and with dedication and work, you could find that this relationship will be one of your fondest. Dogs are amazing animals and they show just how smart they are each and every day. Using the power of their intelligence, you should be able to show them that they can follow your rules and be productive as a family pet. You will enjoy your dog far more, if you take the time to ensure that it is trained. There will be far less conflicts between dog and owner, and you will be enjoying them more than reprimanding them.
For The Family
Training your dog is as much for the dog, as it is for the whole family. Dogs are an animal that mingles within a family setting quite well today, and if your dog is not behaving due to a lack of training it will bring the whole family to a standstill. No one wants to get rid of the family dog, but if the dog is simply not behaving there is often no other alternative. This is why training is so important, as it teaches the family dog exactly what is expected of them and how they should behave. Without training, the family dog could actually cause quite a few problems in the home and this would not be enjoyable for either the dog or the family. Take the time to train your dog, so you do not have to face such a decision in the future.
Gives Them Opportunities
Training your dog will give them opportunities that they would not otherwise have. They could actually go with you to places that without the training they simply could not. Some restaurants and cafes allow the presence of dogs, and if your dog is poorly behaved they will not be one of the lucky ones. Take the time to train your dog right, and you will be glad that you did. Training will help the dog in your home, as well as socially.

Flexiblize Job Hunting
If you are a job seeker, wage affects you most when taking a job. But sometimes, this priority brings you an unsatisfying job. So this is the time for you to list all your demands including income and the joy of work. You can work with a small pay cut in a flexible schedule. That’s the way many people do to balance their desire and reality.
If you are looking for jobs that have built in flexibility, there are quite a few options. Sometimes delivery jobs allow you flexibility as long as your deliveries are made by the end of the day. You can choose where to eat and who to chat with along your route, and as long as your packages are delivered, everything is fine. Another job that provides flexibility is Nashua property management or Manchester property management. If you are managing several buildings or locations, you will be on the road and in charge of your own time. As long as things continue to run smoothly, your employer will be happy regardless of your schedule.
Another option for flexibility is to speak with a potential or current employer about building flexible time into your schedule. Some companies call this flex time and they are happy to do it because it saves them money. You may still be paid for a full-week of work, but you are in the office less. This may mean working from home or working longer days and having a day off each week. Many offices find they run more efficiently by doing this. They can offer employees the chance to spend more time with their families, and when employees are happier and their quality of life increases, their work quality does so as well. If both the employer and employee can be happy with their situation, it makes for the best productivity for a company.
A final option for finding flexible work is to work the flexibility into your offer before accepting the job. When bargaining with a company for a better package, they may be reluctant to pay you what you are asking, especially during a tough economy. You can push for other perks though and a flexible schedule should be one of them. Flexibility does not cost a company any money, so if you would prefer to work four 10 hour days, there is no reason they should object to that if they want you on their team. You may also be able to ask them for the option of working from home a few times per week.

Good Dog! Obedience Training
As the title suggests, praise and positive re-enforcement are your keys to quick and easy obedience training for your dog.
The old saying “dogs are man’s best friend,” didn’t work its way into our every day life by accident. It has taken centuries of man working alongside the Canine and breeding desirable traits into the popular breeds of today. From the tiniest Chihuahua to the biggest Bull Mastiff and everything in between, each breed carries a desirable trait for its master. Along with size, color, type of fur and demeanor. The inherent trait of wanting to please its master, is probably the most desired and useful trait a dog could own. Using your dogs trait to please its master is the most effective way to train any dog. Ever hear the old saying “You attract more bee’s with honey?” Well, the same holds true with training your dog. Good dog obedience training is simply about praising the good behavior of your dog and ignoring the bad.
Praise that can re-enforce wanted behavior can be anything from a simple “GOOD BOY” to a nice piece of steak! A good pat on the head or scratch behind the ears are a couple of my favorites. This type of training can be done under many situations. Let’s say you are working on the command “sit.” If you find your dog in a nice sitting position even without your command. You can use this as an opportunity to positively re-enforce the command”sit.” As the dog is all ready sitting you can tell him/her “good boy! Sit, that is a good sit!” (pet or give him a treat).
Now lets talk a little about handling the not so good behavior. I know that this can be the most challenging part of training a dog. Let me point out the most important thing you have to remember when it comes to dealing with bad behavior. IF YOU DON’T CATCH YOUR DOG IN THE ACT there is no chance for learning or correcting the behavior. If you do catch your dog in the act of say chewing on your brand new dinning room table, (which has happened to me), you must first control your emotions. Then firmly say,”NO!” and re-direct them to what they are aloud to chew on. Now comes the really hard part… praise them for chewing on the correct chew toy. Keep your rage for that Saturday morning kick boxing class.
So, remember “Good Dog!” Obedience Training. Is the best and fastest way to train your dog. And you will be rewarded as you develop confidence in your dog and your relationship with your dog. An unbeatable combination for a long lasting rewarding companionship.
Happy training, thanks for reading.
