This book is currently one of the highly favored dog training guides online and its author is Daniel Stevens. As an owner of several dogs, I already knew a few tricks when it comes to handling my pets. However, with a great deal of good feedbacks I have read regarding this book, I should say it is not a bad idea to give it a try. So what exactly is this book all about?
The book covers a range of information and goes a great deal more than problem behaviors. It includes helpful advice on choosing a dog for those who are decided to get one for a pet or companion. It offers effective guidelines for first time dog owners, such as breed information, housetraining puppies, etc. The book is packed with other interesting informational facts about dogs that anybody would surely benefit from.
Within several weeks since I got to practice the program I have learned so much about dog behaviors and how to respond accordingly. The dog training techniques are presented in more practical approach and the book offers step by step solutions in clear and detailed explanation. This is a quality book which will provide first time dog owners both systematic and creative method to train their dogs.
Sit Stay Fetch has recently undergone a change of name as the book is now known as “The Secrets Of Dog Training.” I have to say the name befits the true intent of the book, though it may no longer be a “hush hush” as the secret is open now to all interested to obtain it.
The book is an E-book, so you pay for it and then you can download it. They even give an eight week money back guarantee, so if you try the book, and it doesn’t help you can return it within two months! That is a really great deal. The bonus is, because it is an E book, it is easy to scroll through to the parts that you want to read and you don’t have to store it at home and flip through pages and pages, trying to find what you need. I don’t know who started the rumor that this book was a scam. These days people are less trusting. I assure you, however; this book is indeed real, well written, and easy to read for first time dog lovers.
The book contains some pretty interesting reading and I have no doubts in recommending this dog training guide to anyone who owns, or is thinking about owning a dog. The book really helps the user gain insight and comprehensive view of dog training. It is a great assistance and there is information guaranteed to be useful to all dog owners.
Cloud Computing For Dummies
There is a buzz word in computing which has been around a while now, Cloud computing. You may have read about it or heard it in the news, but what is it exactly? I will try to explain for the non techy types in simple terms. Basically it involves hosted services on the internet. Hosted as in meaning its parked on the internet. In cloud computing each and everything is done on the internet. This means you can access files from any computer which has an internet connection. The internet is the cloud.
One example of cloud computing that you will have bound to of heard of is Googlemail. You dont need any software to access this email service as the software is on a server (on the cloud). All you need is an internet connection and you can login and freely send and receive email.
If you use Microsoft Excel on your computer regularly then you are using software which is stored on your computer. If you wanted to take a document home to work on you would have to save the document on and then open it up on a computer at home which also had Microsoft excel on. With cloud computing the documents are stored online so you dont need to have the software at home you just need the internet connection. Also if you wanted to share this document with someone in your company you would have to email it to them. With cloud computing the file is stored on the internet and many people can share this document without the need for emailing it about.
With cloud computing, businesses have the ability to track employee activities. You get higher lOther benefits are that there are no more worries about computer viruses, loss of data and system crashes. You can work on expensive software and freeware without having to actually buy them. When you normally buy software you need a licence for each computer, this is where it gets expensive if you have a number of staff that need access to this software. This is where cloud computing technology saves your company money.
If you think your business should take advantage of cloud technology you will need to find a good professional service provider. You need to look for a company that has a proven track record. There are many companies out there offering these services so look around and compare monthly costs. Some offer services like cloud consulting, google apps deployment and training and much more.
Basically cloud computing is an excellent solution for any business looking to utilise their resources better, want more flexibility and security, and want to reduce the cost and complexity of your IT operations.

Havanese Dog Training Tips
You may be the biggest dog lover in the world, but that doesn’t mean everyone in your family or circle of friends is a fan of canines “” even your cute Havanese may look scary. They might have had a bad encounter with a dog as a child or they might simply have an irrational phobia.
Or, it’s possible that they may be frightened by specific behaviors your dog may exhibit. It’s important to not only learn what is causing the fear, but then to figure out what you can do, as the dog owner, to cut it off.
The Source of the Fear
Step one is to talk to your family or friends about what is going on. Imagine if you were afraid of someone’s dog because it growled at you. How would you feel if the dog’s owner blamed you for the problem, assuming you have some irrational fear?
So, you shouldn’t do the same to them. Always start by assuming there is a sound reason for their fear and talk to them about it. Ask if they have seen something in your dog that causes the fear or if they were attacked as a child. The second you can figure out what started the cycle, you’ll be able to start dealing with it.
If Your Dog is Causing the Fear
If you find out that something your dog is doing in particular is causing the problem, keep an open mind. Most dog owners have blinders that keep them from seeing the negative things their dogs might be doing. You look at your Havanese and you see a perfect little angel.
If they happen to be growling whenever your friends go near their water bowl, you have a real problem that needs to be dealt with. It cannot be written off as the person’s fault.
To start with, address the behaviour. If the dog is showing aggressive tendencies based on their space or territorial actions, you need to take control of the space and show the dog that you’re in charge. Once you’ve done that, make sure no one is treating your dog improperly. If they’re up front or physical and that makes your dog uncomfortable, it can create an environment where fear is bred.
If the Fear is from a Past Incident
If it turns out that your dog is not causing any of the anxiety and fear that your family or friends are having, it very well may be the result of a past incident. In this case, it can be easy to simply blame them and tell them to “deal with it”.
But, again, would you want someone to be that callous with you? Probably not. I’m not telling you to hide your dog in a corner and keep him there until they leave, but you can introduce certain safeguards to maintain the safety of your home.
First, teach your dog to stop jumping at strangers. Make them stay calm and well behaved when new people enter the house. Second, make sure they understand that they do not have to pet the dog or greet him.
For most dogs, being ignored will breed ignoring. They will respond the same as this is a clear body language signal to be left alone – presuming there is no direct eye contact or touching.
With time, if you can show them that your dog is well behaved and patient, you may be able to communicate to them that the dog is not going to do anything bad. But, first you must show that the dog is under control.

Police Recruitment Products and Insider Training for Police Jobs
Last month, in light of homeland concerns and the increasing NATO involvement in the Afghanistan conflict, the UK government has announced an increase in recruiting quotas for both police and armed forces.
In line with this, Police-Recruitment UK is again launching its DVD insider products and one-day training services to help candidates pass the police recruitment process on their first attempt.
Police-Recruitment UK has been created to help those who want to become a police officer or a police community support officer.

Police-Recruitment UK personnel are also constantly looking for new data and updated information so that candidates’ chance of passing are increased even more.
Applicants do not realize that to be fully prepared for such things as the police test or police role play, it should start with creating a calm, relaxed and confident mindset. But they must also realize that the whole police recruitment process can be extremely hard and daunting, sometimes confusing, and so the aim of Police-Recruitment UK is to help candidates go all the way and eventually graduate.
The wide range of police recruitment insider products include, but is not limited to:
The Police Recruitment and Police Test Guide
The 60 Minute Police Interview DVD

Dog Training Techniques
There are various dog trainer techniques, but it’s difficult to find which one will work best for you and your pet. Sure! The majority of techniques will work, if done properly, but you need to find one that’s comfortable for you.
One technique that you may of heard of is Clicker Training. What the heck is Clicker Training? Clicker Training has been around for some time now and began being used to teach marine mammals tricks for performance.
So Clicker Training isn’t some magical item that makes dogs listen. It isn’t a gimmick either. The key to making it succeed is to use the click noise with food. It pretty much works as a bridge between dogs finding out that the click means they did something good and is rewarded for it. It’s best described as an event marker and lets the dog know what they did right. Within time, you won’t need the clicker for your dog.
Dog Training Techniques: The Recall Game
I found this one on the internet and found it interesting. It was written by Rebekah Pless. A way to teach your dog to run to you every time you call them is, for starters, is never call your pet unless you can enforce the command. Every time you call your pet and they don’t immediately receive a food reward, then they won’t come to you. Always give them a treat. Keep treats in your pocket all the time. Every good act deserves a reward.
Also never call your pet over for something unpleasant. If you need to groom your dog, don’t call them over to you. Go to the dog instead of calling them over.
Now what you need to do is get 2 people involved in the training. Have the person point to the person calling them. Have them clap, whistle or call the dog. When the dog comes, they get a reward. Use the dogs name every time you call them, so they will become familiar with their name. You only tell the dog to come when they are coming to you.
Once the dog comes to you, hold them by the collar and give them their treat. This prevents them from grabbing the treat and leaving. After they receive the treat, point them to the next person they need to go to and repeat the same process. Not only will the dog learn to come when called, they will also learn to respond to pointing where they need to go too.
Dog Training Techniques: Crate Training
One last technique that you may of heard of is Crate Training. Providing your dog with an indoor kennel crate can help your dogs need for a type of den enclosure. It works as an excellent housebreaking tool, because it helps the dog from not soiling their sleeping place, plus it will also help reduce separation anxiety in puppies, also prevents chewing shoes and furniture and keeps puppies from getting into hazardous things around the house.
Furnish the crate with treats and toys. Make sure the toys are large enough to prevent them from eating them. Also be sure to put water in the crate and bedding. You want your dog to be as comfortable as possible.
Place the crate next to you when you are home. This will help the dog feel more comfortable with the crate. Every now and then, put dog treats in the crate. This will make the dog think of the crate as a positive thing.
Remember to only put the dogs in the crate for short periods of time in the beginning. Puppies have small bladders and usually need to pee over 12 times a day. If your dog has an accident in the crate, don’t punish them.
This technique doesn’t always work, especially with dogs who were bought from pet stores due to their having been forced to eliminate in their sleeping area.
Eventually they will be potty trained and will no longer have separation anxiety.
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.
