The ZUZU CHRONICLES


Zuzu turns 1 on 10/28!

Zuzu is no longer a puppy, but there are still plenty of adolescent adventures to follow via The Zuzu Chronicles!  A local greyhound rescue group that we work with received a pregnant foster and they asked us to adopt one of the puppies.  We have named her Zuzu (the name of one of the characters in the movie, Its A Wonderful Life). We post as much detail as possible about how we raise her, including not just training, but covering areas including the food we feed her, dental and nail trimming care, socialization, crate and house training and more.  Click here for a listing of these posts.

Is your dog wearing ID?

People are often advised to keep a collar with ID tags on their dogs at all times. But often lost dogs are wearing no ID at all. Were the dogs not wearing collars/ID when they escaped? Did they escape their collars and run off? Did they lose their ID somewhere along the way? All of the above happen. How will someone help your dog find his/her way home if there is no ID? In my post dated September 15, 2014, I talked about a lost dog I found far from home with no ID. Since he never showed up on the Lost & Found list at the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center, I am assuming his family found him quickly. Hopefully they have ID on him now.

Ever lost your dog?

If your dog has ever run away or gotten lost, you know how stressful it can be when you don’t know where they are or if they are OK. Imagine how stressful it might be for the dog who is lost!

Last week, I was driving home from my training appointments and was on a rural stretch of road. Ahead of me on the road was a dog trotting down the middle of the road, heading the same direction I was. We were a good three miles from any houses. It was hot and sunny, and there was no shade to be found.

 

The moving wait dog training tip

If you’ve done any training with your dog, you are most likely familiar with the “Wait” cue.  Wait means “do not proceed forward until you have permission.” In my group classes, I teach this in Puppy Preschool Class and Basic Training Class. We continue working on it in the advanced classes. The Stay says to stay in one spot until I return to you. For the Wait, our dogs are waiting for permission to do something in most cases. Wait to be released to eat your dinner. Wait to be released to head out the door for a walk. Wait to be released out of the car. Wait for permission to cross the street when out on a walk. You get the idea.
