MY DOG & I: SIT. BY JANINE LAZARUS

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Janine Lazarus, My Dog & I

The first thing most people try to teach their dogs…The first place we go to (after “No!) when we run into trouble and the most misunderstood of all the commands…The “sit” command is seemingly the number one command that we attempt as amateur dog trainers and the command that owners often use to measure the […]

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Janine Lazarus, My Dog & I

I know I usually try to keep my articles pretty light and newsy but this month I am going to talk about some basic handling. The first and most important thing to establish is that training your dog is mostly a mindset. You have to decide that you are going to make time to work […]

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Janine Lazarus

This summer we started a new program here at the farm… Because a great many of our new dog owners are also working people…go figure, it became apparent that there was a need for some alternative activities during the week for young and active dogs. I decided that for one day a week, I would […]
