January is Annual Dog Training Month

 January is annual dog training month and here are some excellent tips from the San Diego Humane Society for getting your year off to the right start with your pup.

Training Tips
Remember the age-old superstition that how you ring in the New Year will be how you spend the rest of the year?  What better way to spend 2017 than with a commitment to your pets?! It will have you both feeling great this year. Here are some ideas from our Community Training Coordinator, Shauna Romero, CPDT-KA, to get your new year off to the right start with your furry friends:  
In 2017, My Pet and I Resolve To…
  • Have a healthier lifestyle: Dogs make wonderful personal trainers and usually have the stamina to push you further. Resolve to walk them longer or more often. Your dog’s behavior — and your waistline — will benefit.   
  • Shed those extra pounds once and for all: Just like us, our animal companions may have developed a little extra cushion around their waistline during the holidays. Cut back portion sizes, if necessary, and look into healthier food options for you and your pet. Talk to your vet about healthy diet options that will best meet your pet’s individual needs.
  • Start a training program and stick to it: January is National Train Your Dog month, so it’s the perfect time to develop a training program. Patience, consistency and a deeper understanding of a dog’s behavior can lead to happier, healthier and harmonious households. And that is not just the case for dogs, all animals can benefit from consistent training!    
  • Spend more quality time together: Set time aside each day to bond with your pet. Take the time to focus on your pets and create/nourish your relationship with them! You both will benefit from that extra time together.
