Raising a New Puppy?

puppydiaries.jpg

Yesterday, we wished our fabulous Golden Retrievers "Happy Birthday". The first night we brought them home, we must admit asking ourselves (in between the cuteness): "What on earth have we done to our lives??"

The New York Times has begun a weekly series, The Puppy Diaries, about "the challenges and satisfactions of raising a puppy through its first year of life". A snippet from author and new puppy owner Jill Abramson:

Somehow I had forgotten how much having a new puppy is like having a new baby. It's not only the made-up games, the hide-and-seek and stuffed animals. There is the special puppy smell, much like the distinctive scent, better than perfume, of a new baby's head. There is the reflexive urge to smother with kisses. There is the getting up in the middle of the night. There is the singing of lullabies to sleep, lying next to Scout's crate as if it were a cradle. There is the arrangement of play dates for socialization....There are the books written by experts (our puppy manual is by the Monks of New Skete, The Art of Raising a Puppy). There is the feeling of total relief in seeing tired eyes close for a nap.

Remote-Controlled Manners Minder Will Reward Your Dog for Good Behavior

mannersminder.jpg

Wouldn't you love to get your dog to stop the begging, the barking, or jumping on your houseguests? Teach your pet to mind his/her manners. Dogs, like us, repeat behaviors that are rewarded. By targeting and rewarding the good behaviors you want, you can redirect your dog's focus from unwanted behaviors.

Manners Minder Remote Reward Behavior Training System for Canines has a remote controlled feeding tray that lets you reward your dog with a snack for good behavior without stopping what you are doing. It will supply dog treats in your absence.

Discover the Difference -- UltraSmart In-Ground Fence System for Your Dog

innotek.jpg

Discover the ease and convenience of keeping your dog safe in your yard without the structure and expense of traditional fencing.

The UltraSmart In-ground Fence Systemicon uses ReadyTestâ„¢ technology, so you'll always know your dog's collar is ready and working.

This sleek, waterproof, collar has a contoured, comfortable fit and has 3 correction levels, a warning tone, and a low battery back-up monitor.

The system can be expanded up to 25 acres with purchase of additional boundary wire and can be used with second dog with purchase of an additional collar.

This rechargeable collar can also be used on Pawz Away Outdoor Barrier icon and the Innotek Zones Indoors Pet Barriericon systems. No more changing collars to transition from indoor use to outdoor use.

If you have never used an electric fence before, it's important to remember that while the fences do a great job of keeping your pets in, they don't keep other animals (and humans) out. We leave our precious dogs in a traditional backyard enclosure when we are out for short periods and the weather is good.
