Make Dog Training a Part of Everyday Life.

I love these quiet mornings, the rain is falling today and most of this week.  My London niece shared a beautiful picture of her daughter, Olivia, kissing a homemade snowman. Reminds me of growing up years in the beautiful green state of Washington. Then this reminds me of how green Santa Cruz is and how much I realized this when I drove home from the San Jose airport after my visit, a coup;e of weeks ago, to Los Angeles and Long Beach, CA.
Then my mind drifts to my sister and host daughter in cold and flooding Germany. Now my stomach is growling and calling my attention to the kitchen. I will be working at the hospital a lot these two weeks, to allow my coworkers time with their young families. So, I will leave you with these thoughts, as we approach Christmas and the New Year.

Train Your Dog Month: January 2011

The Association of Pet Dog Trainers believes it is long overdue to dedicate a month where we can bring awareness to the importance of socialization and training, and most of all, to inform the public that training your dog can be easy and fun! We selected January as the perfect month because so many dogs and puppies are adopted or purchased from breeders and brought home during the winter holidays. Our desire is to help these new pet parents start off the new year right with their newest family member.

The APDT is planning a variety of events in January 2011 to celebrate National Train Your Dog Month.  We want dog owners to see how simple and fun training can be, and how patience, consistency and a deeper understanding of a dog’s behavior can lead to happier, healthier and harmonious households.  It’s our goal to promote using training methods that are kind, gentle and have an emphasis on building a relationship with your dog.

dogTthe APDT has over 5,000 members who are willing and able to assist dog owners who need help with their dogs.  We want dog owners everywhere to know that there are solutions to help dogs with behavior problems and there are alternatives to try before giving up your dog.
