Hello, and welcome to my blog!

I’ve already written a ‘Welcome’ page for this blog.  You can access it, and why I wrote this blog, here: Welcome

I’ve tried to organize this blog as well as I can, so please use the Categories and Tags listed on the right side of your screen to find exactly the information you are looking for.

You may find my posts on Choosing and Training your dog particularly helpful.

In all things, I believe in using what works, so this blog is by no means a dog bible.  I am simply sharing with you what has worked, and has not, for me with my dogs, with a sprinkling of WHY I think it works, and what I know about dog behavior.  I do not religiously follow either Purely Positive or Dominance theories in dog training, and believe in nice, common sense balance between the two (and I do, on occasion, point out why I think both methods are flawed).


Thank you for visiting my blog, and may you have many happy (and well-behaved) years with your furry pal.
