Pet Tip

You JUST got a new dog – Don’t freak out – Pet tip 255

Today’s domestic dog is still closely related to the wolf. Like all wolves living in a pack, dogs must be part of a stable family and feel safe. Most domestic behavioral problems occur when the dog is confused about how to act/behave in different situations such as your home or out on a walk.

It is recommended that you keep Fido confined no matter his age for at least the first month in your home. This will allow him to settle in more comfortably and adapt to your lifestyle. At the same time, confinement will reduce such misbehaviors as chewing and separation anxiety.

Here are a few general rules to help you to prevent misbehaviors when you bring Fido home:

Murphy was the most wonderful dog I have ever known.  She was a very gentle soul, and so intelligent.  We took her for basic obedience lessons only, and (bad parents!) never really practiced them with her at home.  But we treated her and spoke to her as if she was a member of our family.  As a result, we understood each other in a way that no "training" could ever accomplish.  She was an ambasador of dogs everywhere, teaching children how to handle dogs with love and respect, and converting non-dog lovers or curing people with a fear of dogs.  Not a day goes by that we don't think of her.  She is missed by everyone she has ever met.
