The Top 5 Things You Need to Ask Before Engaging in Home Dog Training Services
Are you sick and tired of waking up to find another good pair of shoes all chewed out? Do you hate having people over because you just know they’ll get slobbered all over or worse? Are the water puddles and poop mounds around the house finally getting to your nerves? If you are, then it’s time to get some dog training in your house.
In home dog training services are getting more popular these days. Pet owners, while they would like to train their dogs themselves, either don’t have the time or don’t know how to. Professional trainers are called in to do the job for them. The owners get to watch their dog’s progress in the convenience and privacy of their houses. If you are considering having your pet educated at home, here are five important things you need to ask before you call the dog trainer.
What level of obedience does your canine qualify for? If he already has a modicum of dog manners, this means you already have had some success in dog training and you may want to consider following it up yourself. However, if you correctly asses yourself incapable of teaching your pet anything, then have the professional over as soon as possible.
Where can I find good trainers? The best gauge is the work itself. Do you have neighbors and friends who’ve had transformed pets and swear by the services of a particular dog whisperer? If not, they probably know someone who does. There are also companies that specialize in dog behavior modification and obedience training you can check out. You can leaf through the yellow pages or surf in the internet to find these people that will offer you the right services at the best price.
What do I look for in a good trainer? The most important thing in a trainer is his method of teaching the dog. Any form of violence or yelling or undue force should not be tolerated under any circumstances. Ask for records or referrals you can personally inspect for yourself. While there are no official animal training government licenses, most trainers have undergone certified courses to equip them in their in home dog training profession. A CDT or CDTA certification from the International Association of Canine Professionals is one of the best qualifications they can have.
Which is better: individual or group classes? One-on-one sessions will ensure that your pet gets all the attention and teaching concentrated on him. It will probably help him learn faster. Group classes on the other hand, will help the dog further develop social skills with others of his own kind. If the trainer is good, he will be able to customize his teaching to each student’s learning curve. It will also be better economically for more people to pitch in and share the expense of their dog’s education. If you prefer group classes, form one with pet owners you know who take good care of their pets – with all the rough housing that’s bound to happen, you wouldn’t want your own infected with fleas or other kinds of infection.
What age should training begin? Right now! The optimal time to start training puppies is at 8 weeks old. However, it’s never too late to teach adult dogs basic commands and progress from there. If you are willing and your dog is present, it can be done. Through in home dog training, a safe and easy way to a well-trained dog is possible.

Soccer Training Programs
A good coach will vary his or her soccer training drills during practices.
There are so many different ways of coaching soccer, what you want to have are practices that the players like to come to and look forward to the next one.
I have found that there are basically 5 different tips or suggestions for coaching soccer to young players. Here are the 5 points.
1. Be Ready
A good coach comes ready with all of his soccer training drills and skill sets planned out. You also need to have the fun activities planned out. The worst thing is to have downtime for the players while you come up with the next drill.
2. No Downtime
If you have prepared ahead of time and have all your drills, skill sets and activities ready there should be no downtime. Downtime is deadly for a practice the players get bored while they wait for you and that is when you loose them and their interest.
3 Make Sure Your Practice Area Is Safe
Make sure that your practice field or area is safe and ready for the players. You will have to do this before the players show up or the night before. Simply go the field where you plan to practice and scope the ground for dangerous materials and discard them. The worst thing is to have a player making a slide tackle and getting cut up and he slide across a piece of glass.
You always need to make sure you have enough equipment for all the players to use. Extra balls, a pump to pump up flat balls, extra shin guards, goalie gloves, cones, pinnies, whistle etc. You don’t want to have to end a practice or not even start because you forgot equipment.
5. Be On Time
You will want to emphasis with your players and coaching the importance of being on time. You probably have a limited time on the field so making sure the players and coaches are ready to go at practice time is important. This will ensure that you have successful soccer training programs.

Tradesmen who have undertaken gas training have excellent earnings potential. Qualified gas tradesmen are in short demand, and as gas is so widely used in homes and commercial buildings throughout the country, those who are properly trained can really benefit from this demand.
Poorly-finished gas work can be dangerous and costly – gas leaks can cause explosions and can cause serious injury or even death, as well as serious property damage. Therefore it is necessary for those working on gas installations to have the proper qualifications.
Tradesmen wishing to undertake gas training should study gas training courses. They should study ACS Gas courses, which include core gas safety, gas central heating boilers, gas fires, gas cookers and hobs, gas water heaters and gas flue analysis. Once they have gained ACS accreditation, they can apply to be registered on the Gas Safe register.
Only engineers on the Gas Safe register are legally permitted to work on gas appliances, including boilers. Therefore householders who need a tradesman to carry out gas work are unlikely to choose one who is not on the Gas Safe register. Also, tradesmen who are not registered with Gas Safe are unable to issue the paperwork required to confirm that the work has been properly carried out in accordance with safety regulations.
Most of the time Gas Safe engineers also carry out standard plumbing work, so many tradesmen who are entering the trade also study plumbing qualifications so that they have increased earnings potential.
Able Skills Domestic Gas Centres are fully equipped for both training and assessment purposes and are suited to those of you who are new to the industry and who are considering a career in Gas but equally, our Gas Centres are also beneficial to existing and experienced engineers who require reassessment or re training.
We offer a wide range of training and assessment to the latest government guidelines in our purpose built workshops and training centres where our qualified team of gas trainers and assessors will provide guidance, support and assistance in a realistic environment to build confidence and competence to work safely in the gas industry.
Able Skills Commercial Gas Centre has been put together to meet the needs of anyone looking to be trained or assessed in aspects of Commercial Gas.
introducing and preparing your dog for a new baby
http://www.bow-tiger.com Video Highlights: 0:15 – Start as quickly as possible 0:57 – Let your dog associate different things with the baby 1:32 – Their schedule with you is going to completely change 2:11 – When the baby arrives at home 3:03 – If you’re not going to allow your dog into the babies room Transcription: Hi everybody. My name is Harper Jones with Bow-Tiger, and you are watching Saturdays with Harper, and today I wanted to talk about introducing and preparing your dog for a new baby. This can be an extremely stressful time for our animals, especially if they have not been around little ones before, they are essentially the baby of the family. We want to make sure that we very readily prepare them, when we got to have our actual baby. The first suggestion that I could make is start as quickly as possible. When you find out you’re pregnant, you want to start preparing your dog just as you start preparing as well. The first thing that you can do is as you start to get baby items in like baby toys, blankets, different things, kind of open them up, let them be around so the dog starts to get used to these different odd items that he or she is not used to seeing around the house. The other thing that you want to do is start to let your dog associate different things with the baby. Bring them around where they can hear babies crying or talking, babies playing, not necessarily in close vicinity to a stranger’s baby. That may be at the park, just different areas so they get used to the laughter and the screams and the crying, and all the things that babies and children do. Us as adults, if we have a dog, they don’t really hear any of that until we get to the situation of having our own children. This is good just to kind of prep them for what’s to come. Another thing that you want to recognize is, yes, the majority of your time is dedicated or a lot of it is dedicated to your animal when you don’t have children. Their schedule with you is going to completely change, once you have that child. Instead of starting after you have a child and making it a shock to the animal, lets take, let our pets know now, that the schedule’s going to change. We can start changing up when they’re walked, how often they’re walked, you do want to make sure they’re walked enough, but maybe we’re a little overzealous with the whole walking we’re doing with them now. We want to get them on a strict schedule so we can manage both pet and baby when that time comes. When the baby arrives at home, one thing you do want to do is you want to have an introduction with your dog and the baby. Make sure that it’s in a safe place and that you do have help available. Most of the time, you’ll find that dogs have a very nurturing attitude towards babies, but just to keep precautions and for safety sake, we do want to make sure we have somebody else available, just so we can have a little help while we’re facilitating that introduction between baby and pet. And then once the baby is here, just make sure that you are still spending time with your dog, giving him or her the attention that she deserves and she desperately wants from you, but also let her know that there are no boundaries. There’s schedule changes, there’s boundaries of where she can go and what she can do because we want to make sure that we keep our baby safe. If you’re not going to allow your dog into the babies room, a lot of the time people don’t want the dogs in that room, make sure prior to that baby being brought home and prior to the baby being born, that we stop that dog from being able to come into the room. We tell them that it’s not allowed and make sure that they also know certain commands. You want a sit, stay, drop it, different types of commands. We want to make sure that our dogs understand these because it’s going to be so much easier for them and so much less stressful for us, when the baby comes, if our dog is already acclimated to how it needs to behave with the baby at home.
