Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan Mastering Leadership DVD Series 5th Ed: Common Canine Misbehaviors

cm_dvd.jpg

You may be familiar with Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan's Cesar Millan's Mastering Leadership - Volumes 1-4. Here's a few helpful hints from his latest DVD Mastering Leadership DVD Series Vol. 5 Common Canine Misbehaviors:Solutions to the 5 Most Common Dog Problems:


1.) Problems on the walk - A canine pack leader leads, and so should you! Your dog should always be next to you or behind you, never out in front. Make sure you are the first one out the door and the first one to come back in.

2.) Barking at a specific stimulus - Take time to simulate the cause of the barking, and practice correcting your dog. If it's the doorbell that sets your dog off, ring it when no one is coming over, so you can stay focused on the task at hand: helping your dog overcome this unwanted behavior.

3.) Barking while the owner is away - This is most often a symptom of separation anxiety. You can help your dog to relax by communicating that being apart is no big deal. Instead of showering your dog with affection, practice no touch, no talk, and no eye contact for at least five minutes when entering or leaving your home.

4.) Overexcitement or hyperactivity - Overexcited or hyperactive dogs are not being challenged enough. Most often, they just require more exercise! Find a new activity to try with your dog - hiking, swimming, agility courses - or step up your current walk routine. Dogs require at least 30 minutes of a structured walk every day. Talk to your vet about how much exercise your dog can safely handle.

5.) Aggression towards other dogs - Watch your temper! If you are tense, frustrated, or angry, your dog will mirror that energy right back at you, so it's especially important to remain calm when dealing with an aggressive dog. But remember, always put your safety first! Seek the help of a professional to deal with this potentially dangerous issue.

PetScoop: Dog Dances the Merengue Video

We all love Golden Retrievers for their endearing personalities, brains and beauty. This short Dog Dancing the Merengue video is a testament to the skill and good nature of the breed.

We may be curmudgeons, but think there's a fine line between laughing with our pets and laughing at them. Happy to say this pup seems to be enjoying the show with a relaxed, open expression, only displaying some nervousness on the backward step. Good doggy!

Sound Therapy for Pet Calming and Healing

seniordog.jpg

This time of year, routines change, company comes a-calling and our pets can be a little needier / grumpier than normal -- especially if they are injured, ill or getting older.

Soft, low music can create a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere for us all. Sound therapy is effective in calming jarred nerves and soothing health issues, both human and animal. Two great choices:

Self-Healing with Sound and Music by Andrew Weil. On CD 1, Dr. Weil discusses the latest in medical research that demonstrates how music heals the body and mind. CD 2 gives listeners a complete "sound journey" into expanded states of consciousness optimized for healing.

Medieval chant, ancient melodies and Celtic music create a serene and therapeutic audio-sensual experience. Non-metered, natural tones of the harp ebb and flow to bring about peace within. This music has helped those suffering from illness, injury and life's transitions.
