Before your dog can read, he has to learn the alphabet! Petplan’s Dr. Jules Benson interviews certified professional dog trainer, Nicole Larocco-Skeehan to learn the basic commands every dog should know. The three core commands introduced in this video – teaching your dog to come, how to sit and how to stay – are easy for both you and your dog to master. And it’s a good thing, too, since these three easy dog tricks will form the foundation of good behavior and more advanced training commands down the road. Need another reason to practice them? They can literally save your dog’s life!
How to Keep Your Dog Healthy. If you’re a dog owner, you surely want your pet to be healthy and to live a long and happy life. But you might sometimes do things that can potentially harm your canine companion without even realizing it. Here are some common mistakes people unintentionally make when it comes to taking care of their doggies.

Bringing puppies to a dog park 7:47
Using physical punishment 8:13
Providing too little stimulation 9:48
Not securing your dog in the car 10:31

-There are several types of collars, and you need pick the one that best suits the needs and character of your pup, as well as a place to attach his license. Whether you’ve settled on a harness or gone for a collar, the second (and just as important!) step is making sure it’s the right size. If a collar or harness is too big, your pooch may escape.
-Dogs don’t sweat like people do, so they can overheat much faster than you’d think. And since they lack this crucial ability to cool themselves off, the consequences of staying in a locked car can turn out fatal.
-A dog’s teeth need to be cleaned just like people’s teeth do. Don’t use toothpastes and toothbrushes designed for people! There are special ones made just for dogs, and they’re pretty different from the human kinds.
-Never feed human food to your dog! It’s way too salty, too spicy, and too fatty for them. In fact, most dishes you eat are severely toxic for them.
-To start with, dogs can sometimes be passive carriers of diseases. Secondly, grown-up dogs, especially large ones, can be incredibly rough when playing and running around.
-Physical punishment doesn’t work and actually does the opposite of what you want – it makes your dog scared of you. Reward-based training is much more effective than physical discipline.
-Just like you, dogs need constant mental and physical stimulation-, especially working breeds, which is why regular walking is a must.
-If you don’t secure your dog in the car and you end up in an accident, your pet can get seriously injured or even killed.
-Dogs don’t understand “NO”, so it only freaks your dog out, especially if you’re ticked off about something that happened a while ago.
-Some people say you can take a break from flea, tick, and heartworm medicine in winter if you live in a cold climate, but you really should discuss it with your veterinarian.
-Dog-proof your house by putting away anything your pet can chew or swallow. Things like medications, screws and nails, magnets, coins, and batteries should never be within your pet’s reach.
-Always do your research before you get a pet so that you’ll know how to best take care of it and what problems to look out for.

Dog Potty Training Rule #1: Months Old = Hours Your Puppy Can Hold Their Bladder
An 8 week old puppy can roughly hold their bladder for 2 hours MAYBE 3 at an absolute maximum.
It is very important to understand that it’s not physically possible for an 8 week old puppy to hold their bladder for 6 or 7 hours.
The general rule for is that for how ever many months old your puppy is, he can hold his bladder for that many hours.
A 3 month old puppy can hold it for 3 hours.
A 4 month old puppy can hold it for 4 hours, etc.
It is very important to have a realistic expectation for how long your dog can actually go without having to relieve themselves
Dog Potty Training Rule #2: Reward With 3 Treats, Not Just 1
Every time your puppy or dog goes to the bathroom outside we want to reward him.
Every time that something good happens to your puppy after he has done something, the more likely your puppy will repeat that behavior in hopes that that good thing will occur again.
This is the key to house training.
We want our dog to learn that going to the bathroom outside is the greatest thing in the world!
A very simple way to do this is to use a very high value food reward that your dog only gets after he has gone to the bathroom in the correct place.
Reserve the dog treats for your other training – potty training rewards need the be the BEST treats your dog has ever had.
Tiny pieces of chicken, steak, cheese, or hotdogs work wonderful.
But remember, these treats are a reward ONLY for house training.
If you use them too often, they will lose their value and that is not what we want to have happen.
Immediately after your dog has finished going to the bathroom, you are going to give him 3 treats in a row rapid fire style.
The dog has just finished peeing, so you give him a treat and he eats it.
The second he swallows that one, you give him another.
After the second one is gone you give him one last treat.
Not only does your dog learn that pooping and peeing outside gets him the greatest treats ever, but this is the only time he ever gets THREE treats in a row!
This is a great little trick to use to speed up the house training process.
What To Do When Your Puppy Has An Accident
How you react when your puppy or dog has an accident ( and you SHOULD expect accidents) has an enormous impact on how successful you will be in house training your dog.
First, here is a list of things NOT TO DO when your puppy has an accident:
Rub their nose in it
Tell them “bad dog”
Put them in timeout
Roll them on their side
Grab them by the back of the neck
If you do ANY of these things in the list above, not only will you make the house training process LONGER, but you will also be teaching your dog to fear you which we don’t want.
Please avoid any of the techniques on the above list at all costs.
Anyone telling you to do any of those things is about 30 years behind in the current research.
So now that you know what NOT to do, what DO we do when we see that our puppy has had an accident?
If you don’t catch your puppy in the act, you just walk into a room and you notice a pile of poop and your dog is no where to be seen, then there is nothing you can do but clean it up.
Dogs live in a very fast paced world, and you need to give them feedback within two seconds of a behavior or they have no idea what that feedback is for.
The two second rule is a very important part of dog training in general, but really comes into play with house training.
So unless you catch your dog in the act of going to the bathroom inside, there is nothing that you can do.
Getting angry with your dog after they have already had an accident will only teach your dog that “humans get angry when they see poop or pee, so I better hide it next time and make sure I don’t go when they are around.”
It is very important that when your dog does have an accident you clean it up the proper way.
There is an enzyme in dog urine that attracts dogs to come back to the same spot to go to the bathroom.
If you don’t destroy this enzyme when you clean up accidents, your dog will continue to go back to the same spot because he can still pick up on the scent.
The best clean up spray that every puppy owner should have is Nature’s Miracle House Training Spray because it is the only thing that completely destroys the enzymes in the urine.
Use that spray after every accident to make sure you are breaking down the enzymes that only dogs noses can detect.
You now know that if you don’t catch your dog in the act of having an accident, then there is nothing that you can do.

Personal protection attack dog training video of a 7 month old German Shepherd/ Belgian Malinois mix puppy. Although this dog isn’t old enough to do real guard dog work it is being prepared to do real protection work… sort of like sending a child to karate class. He will finish guard dog training at about 18 months old. Quality protection dog training takes patience, respect, and knowledge. If a dog is trained with yelling and intimidation…how do you expect them to do protection work on a yelling man? Beware of people who sell sport dogs (aka schutzhund trained dogs) as “personal protection dogs. Sport dogs are trained to look pretty doing specific protection routines on a training field and may be confused in a real situation when there is not a bite sleeve or protection suit to bite. Also these types of protection dogs are trained to take stick hits instead of avoiding them and attcking that arm. This is because you can’t hold the stick with an arm within sleeve and schutzhund is a sport that is meant to prove a dogs bravery and show they are worthy of breeding, therefore they are trained to take stick hits that are always used with a stick that won’t really hurt the dog and are always hit on safe spots of the body. This is setting the dog up for failer when they must fight a person for real that is planning on hitting them in the head with an iron bar. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the dog training video of Matrix… another client dog trained by K9-1 Specialized Dog Training and Mike D’Abruzzo. more dog training info at

10 Bad Dog Behaviors!
Chewing is a very common bad behavior for dogs. Chewing is a dog’s natural way to relieve stress or stop from being bored. Chewing can also ease pain in puppies with new teeth, or in older dogs that have weakening jaws. Chewing is an acceptable behavior when a dog chews an appropriate item, such as a rawhide or dog toy. Most owners become frustrated when their dog chews furniture, shoes, electronics, etc. This type of behavior can be corrected through proper training, especially at a young age.
Many dogs tend to jump on humans or other dogs when excited during a greeting. By nature, puppies jump on older dogs to smell their face, and therefore dogs do the same with humans. Jumping behavior can be a problem because injuries often occur. Untrimmed nails can scratch a person and a jumping dog can easily knock down someone, especially a child. It is important to teach dogs not to jump at an early age.
8. Leash pulling
Many dogs pull on the leash because they are over excited or over stimulated when on walks. Over stimulation can from the smells human don’t notice or the sounds humans can’t hear. Fast moving objects such as bikes, skateboards, or small animals can also cause excitement for a dog, which leads to them pulling when on walks. This type of behavior can be easily corrected through behavioral training.
7. Leash Aggressiveness
Some dogs feel stressed when being walked on a leash, as they feel they are confined or being controlled. When dogs feel this way, they can become over aggressive towards other dogs, people, or objects. Signs of leash aggressiveness include lunging, growling, or aggressive barking. Leash aggressiveness is common and can be treated with behavioral training.
Most dogs become anxious during the early stages of their life when they may not have been properly socialized with other animals or exposed to different environments. They may also have suffered some sort of trauma in their life, such as being hit by a car, abused, or neglected. Dogs that suffer from anxiety will often be fearful, aggressive, cower to other dogs or people, or attempt to run/dart from ‘scary’ situations. Behavior training can help stop anxiety in dogs. If the anxious behavior is severe, medication can be prescribed to help ease a dog’s anxiety.
Many pet owners have to deal with their dogs slobbering. Slobbering can be a result of dental issue, such as too much tartar, rotten teeth, or inflammation and irritation around a dog’s mouth. Excessive salivation can also be attributed to a dog’s breed. Mastiffs, Bloodhounds, and Bulldogs are common breeds that excessively drool. These types of breeds often have trouble holding in liquids because they have floppy mouth skin, short/narrow snouts, and large jowls.
4. Dog Aggressiveness
Many dogs become aggressive towards other dogs. Dogs that are aggressive often growl, bark, lunge, snap, and attack other dogs. They could become aggressive from fear or it could be a learnt behavior. Some dogs can become aggressive when they are forced into a situation they do not want to be in, such as meeting other dogs at the dog park or during walks.
3. Territorial Behavior
Dogs often defend the area they deem as their territory, or the area they think belongs to them. Common territories that dogs defend are their crate or sleeping area, the yards around their house, or the area around their food. Dogs can also be territorial of their dog toys. Typical signs of territorial behavior include growling, aggressive barking, biting, or frenzied behaviors. Territoriality in dogs is treatable and can be corrected through behavioral training.
2. Excessive Barking
Barking is a natural way of communicating in dogs, but many dogs bark when it is inappropriate or unnecessary. Common reasons a dog barks is to alert or sending a warning, when they are excited or greeting someone new, when thy feel threatened or afraid, or simply because they are being playful. Barking becomes excessive when the dog continues to bark even after the situation that initially caused the barking to start, has stopped. This type of behavior can be corrected through proper behavioral training.
1. House Soiling
Some dogs go to the bathroom in a house as a result of a behavioral problem. Dogs urinate or defecate when they are afraid or anxious, to show submission, or mark their territory. It I important to determine the exact reason your dog is spoiling in the house. By understanding the reason for this unwanted behavior, a proper treatment program can be created to stop this it from continuing to occur.
