Spring is here and it's time to get outside with your pup! Do you have a spring bucket list of things to try with your dog? We love encouraging you with different training ideas and activities that you can do with your pet. We want to be sure that no matter what, we continue to try new things. This gives you a chance to dive in and practice your dog's obedience skills. It also gives you a chance to spring into action and build your relationship with your pet. Map it out and create a game plan!
Things to keep in mind when doing activities with your pup is safety. When you are taking your dog out you want to be sure that you are taking them in controlled settings. Dogs need to be on leash or receptive to e collar corrections and off-leash reliability. The other animals that may be around your dog need to also be under control either on leash or have e collar reliability. The behaviors of other dogs need to be either predictable or controlled in a safe manner. Do not count on the other owners doing the right thing, not all owners realize the risks of bringing an aggressive dog to a dog park or an off leash setting. Don't put your dog in those situations to be at risk of a dog fight, or uncontrolled setting. There are plenty of safe alternatives to an uncontrolled setting. Here's a spring bucket list to help build your bond with your dog in a safe manner.
A Breath of Fresh Air
Trying new things can be fun! Here's a list of things to do with your pup that gets you out and enjoying the sunshine with your dog.
Spring into Action
The important part is to stay active. Don't let fear of doing something new keep you inside. Take advantage of your alumni classes at the very least to help stay brushed up on your obedience skills.
Remember Safety First! Don't assume every dog in public is friendly and don't let other dogs barge in on your dog. Controlled settings are for you and other dog's safety. When you are taking your dog out you want to be sure that you are taking them in controlled settings. Dogs need to be on leash or receptive to e collar corrections and off-leash reliability. The other animals that may be around your dog need to also be under control either on leash or have e collar reliability.
