Partnership: Why do dogs make good companions for people?
One of the reasons is that, like us, they tend by nature to live in groups. From the moment your puppy became aware of his surroundings, he was part of a pack. Since joining your household, the pup has been readjusting to fit into a new pack. Just as the puppy is rapidly becoming 'one of the family' for the humans in the house, from the puppy's point of view, all the people and other pets in the household are part of his new 'family-pack'. Even at a few weeks of age, the individual characters of each puppy begin to express themselves and the litter your puppy has recently left would have been organised into a structure with a top, a middle and a bottom and Mum as the overall pack leader. Your puppy will expect his new pack also to have a structure and will be looking to you to show him where he fits in.

Who is pack leader in your house ?
It is important that the pack order is established from the very beginning of your relationship. Get this right, and you will have the basis for a relationship with your dog that is rewarding for both of you.
Who Decides.
Who decides when it is time for your puppy to be fed or have a cuddle?
Who starts and finishes the games ?
Who decides where the puppy sleep ?
You Decide.
Following a few basic pack rules will establish from the very start that people rank higher in the family pack than your dog. Not that you love him any less, but that you love him in his correct place.

What is a pack leader's role ?
The leader of a canine pack is king of the castle, AKA the BOSS. The position brings many privileges, pack leader eats first and has the pick of the resting places, but also carries many responsibilities. The leader of the pack is responsible for safety and protecting the other pack members, for making the rules and ensuring they are followed. A dog pack leader fulfils their role by guiding other pack members and rewarding them for behaving in the appropriate manner. The good pack leader can be firm when necessary and fun when suitable. Most important, a pack leader must earn the pack's respect by being consistent with calm assertive energy with positive reinforcement for good behaviour. Decide on the rules for your pack "family" and make sure everybody understands and follows them. Give a dog a inch and they eat the sofa.

*****************************Nothing in life is free (R+ (CANRG) = Pack leader = YOU*****************************
Puppy is born to follow if you stick to these rules, with patience and love, you will be a great pack leader. Y
ou have a responsibility to the dog/ puppy the day you got Him/Her.

Provide your puppy with his own comfortable bed and teach him from the start that this is where he sleeps.
You: Control the resting places.

In any wild dog pack, the leader eats first and the lower ranking pack members have what is left. Make sure that your puppy knows you control the food. Do not leave his meals down all the time, or he will be able to eat what he wants when he wants.

You: Control the Food

Give your puppy lots of attention, but on your terms. Call him to you and make a fuss of him, play with him and train him. If the puppy tries to demand attention, ignore him and avoid eye contact. Once he has given up and gone off to amuse himself, call him to you and play a game.
You: Are is hero

Always control the games you play with your puppy. You start the games and you finish them, removing the toys at the end of the play session and placing them out of reach. Always stop before the puppy becomes bored so the toys retain their novelty value and he will always be on the look out for another game. An additional benefit is that your puppy will become excited when you bring out the special toys and they can be used as reward in training
You: Control the best trophies.

To handle and groom your puppy is a privilege you extend to him. Short, pleasant grooming sessions will help to reinforce the bond between you and clarify your position as pack leader, whilst teaching your puppy that human hands are not a threat.
You: Control the right to handle and groom him if you wish.

Higher ranking pack members walk where they wish. If the puppy is lying in a doorway you wish to walk through, make him move to let you pass. Do not walk round him to get to a destination. If you are passing through a door or gateway with him, make sure he allows you to pass through first.

What is your puppy learning ? - stepping aside is a mark of respect. YOU ARE PACK LEADER!!!!!!

We teach dog training and puppy training "Dog Obedience Training"
This helps you to achieve full leadership and stimulates your dog. This helps you to understand and prevent bad dog behaviour. Training should be fun for both of you -incorporate training exercises into games the pup enjoys. Keep the play/training sessions short but frequent and varied. Be consistent, Make a list of words you wish to use and make sure everyone dealing with the pup knows them.

Make a list below of the words and hand signals you and everyone will use when training your pup
- Action
- Command
- Hand signal
For example:
Pay attention -use puppy's name holding hand with treat up to your face. We need eye contact on name.
Sit - use name plus sit with hand in front of nose, raise hand vertically

*********************** These are the commands we feel all dogs should learn, know and why ***************

Teaching the puppy "toilet" PEEPEES & POOPOOS Or GO TOOS
Why: Do we need to say?

Getting the puppy's attention & Teaching your puppy his name

Why: The only way your puppy will ever learn to respond to your commands is if you can first attract his attention and encourage the pup to home in on YOU.

Why: We teach "AH" for no. This can not be said in a angry or frustrated way which is very important. This helps us to set rules, yes you can do this, no you can't do that.

Teaching your puppy to SIT

Why:The dog can pay attention to you and take his cues as to what to do next from you when he is sitting quietly.

Teaching the puppy to LIE DOWN.
Why:This is an ideal position for the dog to be in while you examine him or administer first aid. A dog which is lying down is less reactive to what is going on around him and is far more likely to STAY in position should he need to be left for a few moments.

Teaching the puppy RECALL.
Why:An instant RECALL from a distance can be a life saver if the dog is heading for danger such as an approaching train when he is running close to a railway line, a horse galloping down a bridleway, a cliff etc. Very young puppies tend to follow their people around, and it is easy to be lulled into a false sense of security that this will continue forever! Sooner or later you will take your puppy for walks somewhere with many interesting distractions and for the safety and sanity of all concerned.

Teaching the puppy STAY.
Giving a command to stay helps with separation anxiety, they know your coming back. Helps with the saftey of the dog, on walks, waiting at the door or by the road side etc.

Teaching the puppy OFF.
Why: The sofa cost £5000

Teaching the puppy DROP.
If you have a young puppy, you know the answer to this - it's because they frequently have something valuable or dangerous in their mouths!

Teaching the puppy LEAVE IT.
Same as above and when you see the cheeky little monster on is way to your chocolate. Leaving other dogs toys in the park, this stops fights. Leave the xmas dinner, you can not go out a buy another turkey.

Teaching the puppy CALM.

Why: A calm dog listens.

Puppy Love: Do Dogs Have Emotions? There's no doubt in my mind that dogs have emotions. They feel joy after a job well done. They feel sad when a pack member passes away. And they feel love for their family members – their pack. However, it's important to remember that those emotions are different from our own. The feelings that dogs experience aren't connected to complex thoughts. They don't have ulterior motives or doubt. Their emotions are pure and honest.
Your dog isn't lying to you when he communicates that he loves you. The more you fulfill your dog's needs, the more this connection will develop between you. There's nothing better than coming home from a bad day and having your dog there to support you. No judgment. No questions. Just love!But remember, how we feel affects our dogs. If you are upset after a long day of work, your dog won't understand why, but he will pick up on your energy and body language. He will interpret this as unbalanced energy, and if you don't have your leadership down pat, it can lead to behavior issues. Make sure you are fulfilling your dog's needs first.
Our dogs give us so much and ask so little. If we provide them with exercise, discipline, then affection, we can really appreciate man (or woman's) best friend and the love they have to offer.
Stay calm and assertive.'
