German shepherd protection dogs training – bite work and long attack – male Tayson
Training a German Shepherd comes with it’s own unique challenges that other breeds don’t give you. One of the most rewarding breeds of dog the German Shepherd dog tends to have a very distinctive personality that makes training it something that requires special attention.
A few reasons why you will need specific advice on German Shepherd training
· A GSD (German Shepherd Dog) is one of the most energetic breeds of dog
· They require considerable mental as well as energetic stimulation
· A lot are very particular about what they eat
· They suffer from numerous health problems inherent in the breed (e.g. hip dysplasia)
German Shepherd Training
So what specifics do you need to consider when German Shepherd training?
Firstly you must remember just how energetic your dog is. They require a lot of rigorous exercise every day – and before they do they have trouble concentrating. So make sure that you exercise them before getting into any serious obedience training or they won’t concentrate as well.
The level of mental stimulation they need is also considerable, so don’t have just one training session a day. On top of that training session look to include training in everyday activities, like getting them to sit before crossing a road or eating.
Make sure you are also thinking about what their diet is when you are giving them food rewards. Because of the health issues associated with the breed it is best to give a German Shepherd a very healthy diet – to that end make sure the treats and rewards you give are healthy. GSD’s certainly do well with a lot of protein in their diet.
If one of the training methods that you are consider is obedience schools make sure they allow German Shepherds. A lot of schools don’t allow German Shepherds because of how they are with other canines. Some will require you to muzzle the dog, DON’T. Muzzling them will make training far harder.
Why Its Buyer Beware in Pet Care
This past week in Arizona, seventeen dogs were killed at a kennel from heat distress after one dog chewed through dry wall and the electrical cord to the air conditioner. But is this really a freak accident that could not have been prevented as claimed by the business owner? The Dog Gurus, Robin Bennett and Susan Briggs will tell you this type of incident is a known risk. Professional pet care facilities invest in materials designed to safely house dogs and follow pet care safety protocols to avoid these kinds of incidents.
Understanding the environment where you leave your dog is key to safety, but you also must realize that a dogs behavior in an unfamiliar environment may differ from their behavior at home, stated Bennett. Professional pet care providers first ensure the safety of the physical environment, but more importantly train staff to observe dog behavior for signs of stress. Chewing is normally a result of stress and boredom. Extra safety precautions should be available for dogs who are anxious when they are left in a boarding facility.
So how do you recognize a safe environment and professional pet care center? Tour the facility prior to making your reservation and confirm that all areas that house dogs are constructed with dog management and safety in mind. Drywall is not an acceptable material when providing professional pet care. Those facilities that have drywall, which is common in homes, usually use material to safely cover the walls to prevent damage and injury or the dogs are property supervised to prevent chewing incidents. Electrical cords, plants and other items that can be chewed or ingested should not be accessible to dogs when left alone. Most importantly, professional pet care providers understand canine body language and behavior. They monitor all pets for signs of stress and take steps to alleviate the cause of stress so that they can keep your dog safe and healthy.
Bennett and Briggs wrote an article on Identifying Great Pet Care Centers and are in the process of creating a directory of pet care professionals that offer off-leash play services to assist the public in making good pet care choices. It is heartbreaking to hear of tragedies in professional pet care, states Bennett. Briggs added, When this type of situation happens, it is frustrating as we know it could have been prevented if the public understood what to look for in selecting quality pet care. We created our website with that goal in mind. Our directory will include members of The Dog Gurus community that are invested in ongoing education and providing excellence in pet care services they provide.
Before you make a reservation for your dog online, be sure to visit the pet center and see for yourself the environment where your dog will be kept. These types of accidents are avoidable! A home environment may seem like a happier place for your dog, but safety protocols must be your first priority in pet care selection. If you are using a home-based provider, be sure they are following those safety protocols and are a reputable, licensed business. To your dog having a professional that understands their emotions and offers activities they enjoy will make them happy. Members of The Dog Guru community provide safe and fun pet care every day.

In an effort to better serve his current clients and dog owners throughout San Luis Obispo County and beyond, Ashley Starling, owner of Canine Tutors, a local dog training company, is pleased to announce the launch of his new company website. The new site, caninetutors.com, is more responsive to the latest advances in technology and therefore allows visitors to peruse dog obedience training videos and additional information on their Smartphones, iPhones, tablets and more.
It was time to update my site to allow more dog owners the ability to view information and videos wherever they may be on the go, while traveling instead of only through their laptop or desktop computer, said Starling. The new site allows me to add more training information and, most importantly, allows dog owners access to a wide variety of important topics that are pertinent to their particular needs.
Cleaner, less cluttered, more information, 100+ videos, and easier to navigate these are the advantages that Starling points to when discussing Canine Tutors Dog Trainings new website. Having the ability to share his dog training techniques in a simple, easy-to-follow fashion is key to his success, according to Starling. Its the way he teaches clients in person and now, with even more videos available on his site, a way to connect with dog owners who want to know more about his methods.
When a client puts my techniques into practice, they see immediate results, said Starling. For those who may be curious about what I have to offer, the website is a way to get a lot of valuable information. I can almost guarantee that they will want to know more and thats when it is time to give me a call and set up an appointment for some one-on-one training.
And when that time comes, Starling offers a free evaluation and consultation to dog owners throughout San Luis Obispo County to help them decide if Canine Tutors Dog Training is the right choice before deciding to enroll in classes.
It has always been my belief that people appreciate true knowledge when they see it, said Starling, and that is what they will see when they view the videos on the Canine Tutors Dog Training website. I dont hold anything back what you see online is what really happens when I introduce my methods of dog training. I also offer the first training lesson at no cost that is an added bonus.
The caninetutors.com website will be updated frequently with new dog obedience training videos and tips, according to Starling. In doing so, Starling says he wants to show dog owners just how easy it is to get results.
The way I train, and this comes through in my videos, in non-punitive, said Starling. I keep the dog happy and I get results that work in real world settings. I love what I do and I love sharing my knowledge with others. Every dog has the ability to be a well-trained family dog and I can make that happen.

One year later, with his Fidelco Guide Dog Xxon leading the way, Michael returned to work as the only blind airman on active duty in the Air Force.
