Talk about dogs that have reactivity issues. Dog looks at another dog when on leash? Lunging at people and so on. Am sure many of you struggle on daily basis.
Selecting the right k9 Companion! Ask any dog owner how they met their dog for the first time and see their face light up with joy! The best moment with our dog is the first memory of getting them home. The planning, the excitement, the constant fear what if one family member disagrees! How will we convince them?! Where will the pup/dog sleep, what will I feed, how will I […]
Both are four-letter words and define each other beautifully. Imagine a world where you can sense happiness even before it comes to you!Lived all my life where work did give loads of linear success but inside I sense this vacuum as if a parallel life exists within. Dogs have been my companion since childhood, giving sadness only when literally death did us part. They have always been the channel for […]
It is not the entire process of being with a dog. There is so much more to what we can make out of the company of a dog. The word DOG TRAINING is a misnomer! Training should mean fear free joyful existence with your dog. Ask any dog owner who has an aggressive dog and you would know how they live with the constant fear of what the dog might […]
Celebrations with fireworks, loud music and noises are part of our festivities. Are you aware that these loud sounds can harm and stress your dog immensely?
Noise phobia is an excessive fear of a sound that results in the dog attempting to avoid or escape from the sound. It's an irrational, intense and persistent fear response that can develop at any age and in any dog breed.I have outlined the exact programme to help out with Loud sound sensitivity. You can find it in the K9 Arsenal section on this website. Here is the link to it. https://k9companionsindia.com/k9-arsenal/
A K9 COMPANION The dog’s reputation as man’s best friend is a well earned one. I have always felt a special affinity exists between our two species. There’s an intangible bond something special that connects us and probably has been there since our earliest beginnings. Varied evidences suggest that dog is not only man’s best friend but also his oldest.Our ancestors have added other animals into their communities but dogs […]
IF OUR DOGS KNEW HOW TO..THEY WOULD COMMIT SUICIDE! Here s why i say that.. We bring in dogs into our lives where a large population is either first time dog owners or had way too many dogs but had no time or never bothered to check on what their dogs are telling them. Dogs try to understand us by the way we behave, our body language, our facial expressions […]
Do you know what is ‘GOATS ON THE ROCK?’ Our dogs should be taught from early on to having their paws handled. Counter condition them to the clipper by making it a positive experience being around the clipper, use treats. Also at times if the ‘Quick’ gets accidentally cut it can cause a bad experience to the entire nail clipping exercise. What is dog’s Quick? Quick is the area which […]
FEELINGS We have all heard and read enough to know how a pet and mostly a dog can physiologically and pscyochologically be beneficial for our sound health and happiness. As a behaviourist I have always wondered as to what our dogs are thinking and how do they perceive the human care giving. People get dogs for different reasons, some would bring dogs for guarding their properties, some are a specific […]
“OH GOD! I HAVE AN ATTENTION SEEKER AT HOME” Attention seeking is a perfectly normal behaviour for pups because it’s a part of survival mechanism as they depend totally on their mums for care giving but in adult dogs jumping, pawing, barking and whining for attention can very quickly become annoying. I am sure many at some point of time had to either make this statement or at least hear […]
The Panic Puddles Does your dog pee in submission? Submissive urination by our dog is a way of telling us that we mean no harm to you. I am no threat. Please don’t harm me “I don’t want to confront any one”. It’s more like a white flag for peace. Submissive urination is most common in puppies but some adult dogs do that as well. Specially those that lack confidence […]
