My Dog & I: If One is Good… Why Not Two??

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

“And when we arrived at the breeders, there they were…snuggled up together in their pen. They were so sweet, we simply couldn’t imagine tearing them apart…” “Honey, they will be great company for each other while we are away at work all day…” “They are pack animals, Mom. They want to be together!” And so […]

My Dog & I: Rehabilitation

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

One of my theories about dogs and their personalities is that most of what they need to know in order to have a happy, calm life, can be put in place before they are eight weeks old. I know it sounds a little unrealistic …mostly because we don’t even get our puppies until they are […]

My Dog & I: Respect. What Does it Mean to Me?

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, goodladd dog training, Janine Lazarus, My Dog & I

When I think of the word respect I associate it with words like “honor”, “trust”, “consideration” and yes, “obedience”.

In my relationship with my dogs, there are many elements and emotions but […]

My Dog and I: Best Dog Ever…

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

A couple of years ago, I adopted an East German German Shepherd named ANA. She had been a student of mine and because of her high prey drive and intense personality, had become an inappropriate match for her owners “pack”. German Shepherds are complicated and sensitive dogs generally and this particular branch of that Family […]

My Dog & I: Crate or Cage?

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

Many years ago,  a big controversy was front and foremost in the dog training world… Dog trainers and animal professionals were using a containment system to manage their dogs while working with them, training them and caring for them.
