Choosing the right dog training equipment
 
Ultimately, it should not matter what equipment you are using with your dog. Our goal with training is that your dog be responsive to you regardless of what he’s wearing, where he is, or what is happening in the environment.

Does the weather affect your dog-walking?
 
The first dog of my own as an adult was a retired racing Greyhound named Gunner. When I first adopted him, I did not have a fenced yard so we had to go out on leash every time – whether to take care of business or go for a walk. I lived in Minnesota at the time and it was December when I adopted him. That winter we hit a spell with the highs for the day at subzero temps. The weather did not matter, we went out no matter what. (Though some walks were far shorter than others, because you can only stay outside for so long when it’s 20 below with a windchill of 80 below!

What are your household rules?

When I meet with clients for behavior consultations and private training, I start by sitting down and asking lots of questions. One of those questions is often: “What are the rules of your household?” Sometimes I get immediate answers, but often I stump people with this question. What do you mean, they ask. Can you give me an example?
