I get asked quite a bit about who I recommend for other pet related needs. Since I get asked so often, I decided to post a list!
Pet Sitting and Dog Walking
Jeremy Waugh, one of my associate trainers, offers quaility pet sitting in his home. He also is able to provide training at an additional fee. Space is limited as he only takes 3 pet sitting dogs at a time. Rate starts at $60 a night. Email: email@example.com Read More
If you just adopted a new dog or puppy, congrats! I wanted to write a blog post specific to bringing home a new dog that wasn't picked up right at 8-10 weeks from a breeder's home with a known history, because we chose a different route in integrating a puppy or dog into our home that is a little older and one that may have fears or unknown behavior problems.
Many wonderful rescue groups and shelters promote a fantastic protocol named the "Two Week Shut-Down." In this protocol, they advise new adoptive owners to take a two week break with getting to know their new family member. This means literally that the new dog should NOT leave your property for two weeks and you should not have new guests over to greet the dog. Don't stop reading! This is a very crucial time for your new pet to adapt to you, your family, your home and learn the ropes. There is more than enough going on without taking the dog out to stimulating environments or having new people come into the mix.

Millie is now 2.5 years old. I would say who she is is now pretty solidified.
Our previous obstacles in the last post were:
- Issues recovering after a scary event or thing.
- Uncomfortable in new environments.
- Resurge in crate barking in new locations only.
Congratulations on your new puppy! We are excited to welcome you to Tailored Dog Training and begin training! We know our new puppy clients have a lot of questions and wish to get started right away. Here are some links for popular puppy behaviors as well as a summary on what to expect at class. Read More
1. Where does training take place?
a. Training takes place in your home. We will use your neighborhood, parks, shopping centers and stores to take “field trips” as necessary if we are working on a behavior such as reactivity or puppy training that requires us to move to new environments.
2. Should anything be purchased prior to lessons?
a. No, you don’t need to purchase anything special. We will bring any equipment to show you that you may want to purchase (from us or from your local retailer).
3. Where should dogs be upon trainer arrival? Read More
