My Dog Keeps Running Away, What Should I Do? Try These Tips

Here’s how to stop this frustrating behavior.

Isn’t it always the second you accidentally drop the leash or open the door that your dog runs off? Seemingly deaf to your frantic calls and whistles, he’ll cause a scene straight from vaudeville — in which you are the bumbling fool chasing after him.

But the real problem is that dogs who get loose are often injured. They chase cars and get hit, fall into ditches or even get into fights with other dogs. It’s our responsibility to ensure that doesn’t happen. One way to do that is to invest in proper training.

To learn about best practices, I talked with Jonathan Klein

Dogs will run off for a few reasons, including:

  • Another dog/animal to challenge or investigate
  • Fear
  • To chase cars
  • Food/other temptations

What it really boils down to: There is something much more interesting or less scary “over there” than “over here.” “If running away gets him somewhere he’d rather be, he’s likely to run away,” says Jonathan.

As responsible dog people, we must be aware of the lures in our dogs’ environments and prepare to combat them with good training through positive reinforcement.

Indoor Voice, Please

Our first instinct when our dogs take off is to chase them and yell — we know they could potentially run into danger, and we want to avoid that at all costs. The problem is, our dogs don’t understand that. They only know that we’re mad and we’re chasing after them — which scares them, so they run faster and farther.

Jonathan puts it this way: “Humans are thinking, ‘Oh no, you’re going to die, you’re my dog and I love you and I don’t want you to die!’ but dogs don’t understand that. Dogs are thinking, ‘Oh no, the longer you chase me yelling, the farther I’m running.’”

Using positive reinforcement means more effective — and humane — results. By: juanktru

Don’t Fib

If your dog does come to you, don’t use that opportunity to scare him.

If you “sweet talk” him over, then start yelling at him, your dog will learn that he can’t trust you, no matter your tone. Your dog needs to know that coming when he is called is a rewarding experience for him — not a scary one.

What You Can Do to Help Your Dog

First, remember that training takes time. It’s not something that will be concretely reinforced in your dog’s mind for a long time — and this is a command that you want to practice regularly to keep it fresh.

Second, positive reinforcement is the way to go. You want your dog to know that coming to you is much better than anything he’s going to find out there.

“The object is to teach the dog to do the behavior and then reward him for it, motivate with treats; motivate with play. The object is to make it fun and not let the dog have a chance of failing,” says Jonathan.

When your dog comes to you, praise him like it’s the most amazing thing in the universe. He’ll soon understand that coming to you nets him what he likes best — your affection.

Training Advice

Keep gradually increasing the distractions your dog faces while telling him to come. Start somewhere as isolated as possible, like your living room.

If you live in a rural area, take your dog to a big field, where you will be alone. “If you live in the middle of some rural area, I would go out to the middle of a field and run 100 yards away, then call my dog. What’s the dog going to do? He’s going to come to me. When he does, I praise him,” says Jonathan.

But even if you don’t have a rural area nearby, you can easily use your own living room, backyard or other isolated areas to start. The important thing is to make it a fun, positive and rewarding experience for your dog.

As your dog gets better at coming to you when called, you can gradually move to areas that offer more distractions. Take your time, make it fun and eventually you’ll have a dog who will come to you not just because he has to — but because he wants to

 

 

Top 10 Dog Feeding Tips

For most dogs, mealtime is the best part of their day – Charles Shultz got it right when he depicted Snoopy dancing in glee at “suppertime.” Of course, not all dogs like mealtime, for some dog owners, getting their pup to eat can be a very big chore. Others may take it a little too seriously and guard their food against humans and/or other dogs. The following 10 dog feeding tips can help you at mealtime regardless of the type of dog you have.

1 – Feed separately

Even if your dogs don’t guard, it’s best to feed them apart for many reasons: you can tell if one of your dogs is not eating; you won’t have to worry if one of your dogs eats another’s medications; your dogs won’t feel like they need to gulp their food so the other’s won’t get it; the list goes on and on. And, feeding your dog around other dogs, can foster guarding behavior!

2 –  Have a beggar? Feed multiple times a day

While some dogs will always act as if they are starving no matter what, you can help by splitting their meal up into two or three meals. Or better yet, you can make a habit of feeding them at the same time as you, so they aren’t as likely to beg. (This has nothing to do with dominance, it just means they will be out of your “hair” eating their own food.) They’ll be getting the same amount, but they will feel like they are getting more food.

 

#3 – Slow them down

Regardless of their size, it’s not good for a dog to eat fast, and it can be particularly dangerous for a larger dog. Slow them down by using “slow feeder” bowls and/or food toys. If your dog chews on things, make sure you pick one that is hard plastic – some of the feeders have rubber bottoms that, if left alone, dogs will chew off and ingest.

#4 – Raise them up

Along with eating to fast, the position of the neck for large dogs can cause problems like bloat. So use a raised feeder for larger dogs.

#5 – Time limit

Do you leave your dog’s food out all day and they don’t go near it? This is a big problem, especially with smaller breed dogs. Instead, give your dog 10 minutes. If she doesn’t eat, pick it up and wait until the next meal. Chances are, your dog will start eating sooner because she knows the food isn’t going to be there for her to pick at all day.

#6 – Entice them

If you have one of those dogs that are not excited about mealtime, you can help by adding broth, wet food, or a sprinkle of flavor such as freeze-dried Stella & Chewy’s or The Honest Kitchen’s Wonders Pollack Fish Skin Treats.

#7 –  Using tools to Train Them

Don’t just give your dog’s food away for free! All that food is an excellent opportunity to instill a work ethic in your dog. You don’t have to train them for the entire meal, just grab a handful and ask them to do a few behaviors. Then have them sit and stay while you put the dish down, then release them to eat the rest. You will find your dog works better for you when he learns “nothing in life is free.” Plus, it helps you remember to train the dog!

#8 –  Clean those dishes

You probably don’t think about it, but those dishes get gross quick. If you feed dry kibble, pick a day of the week and make that “dog dish day.” If you feed wet, raw, frozen, or fresh foods, you should be washing that bowl after every meal – even if it looks like your dog licked it “clean” – he didn’t.

#9 – Avoid plastic dog bowls

To go along with #8, avoiding feeding your dog in plastic dog bowls, they absorb too many odors and bacteria. Stainless steel or ceramic is best. (Do you use a metal bowl and your dog is missing hair and have red skin on his muzzle? It could be a metal allergy! Have your vet test him, I have a dog that’s allergic to several types of metal.)

#10 –  Don’t tease them

Unless you are a trained dog behaviorist (or working with one), DO NOT DO THIS. Work on the sit/stay/release mentioned above, and then leave your dog alone until he walks away from the bowl, then immediately pick it up as some dogs will guard the empty dish. Part of working with a resource guarding dog is building trust and your dog realizing you are not taking away his “resources.” Teasing him will not help you build that trust and the respect you need to safely live with your dog.

Petdiary’s no bark collar using spary collar to control nuisance barking

A dog’s instinct is to bark when they are frightened, need to alert others of changes in their environment or simply out of curiosity. Dogs will bark to signal or communicate everything from happiness and excitement to loneliness, anxiety, and fear. They may even bark to alleviate boredom. In other words, barking can be a good thing, but only if it is controllable.

Some dogs take barking to a whole different level. They can bark at everything from strangers to a leaf blowing across the yard. PETDIARY® is proud to announce the Spray no bark collar will help lessen nuisance barking.

Bark stop collar

How to stop dog barking

Ultrasonic collars work by emitting a sound that only your dog can hear when he barks. The sound is intended to startle your dog, interrupting the behavior.  By combining ultrasonic sound with vibration, the PETDIARY® Spray no bark collar provides a humane and effective solution that helps train dogs not to bark. This lightweight compact collar is perfect for little dogs as it weighs only 2 ounces.

The Spray no bark collar features 3 operating modes, ultrasonic tone only, vibration only or ultrasonic tone and vibration together. In an ultrasonic mode, the collar utilizes a sound as a deterrent, delivering a high-pitched screech that is will get the dog’s attention. This setting is adjustable, to minimize the collar’s response to common nearby sounds other than barking. As the name indicates, the vibration mode means the collar begins to vibrate when it detects barking. The response is much like the vibrate mode on a cell phone. The Spray no bark collar has an adjustable bark sensor and easy to adjust collar. It is also water resistant and comes with a limited one-year warranty.

All our customers think all dogs are amazing

If you’re a dog owner, you probably already know just how amazing dogs are. They fill your life with love, loyalty, fur, joy. Everyday is an adventure of happiness.

1.Dogs increase your mood dramatically! 

Spending just 15-30 minutes with your dog can help you feel more calm and relaxed, reducing stress and increasing happiness. Playing with your pup increases your brain’s levels of dopamine and serotonin, both of which are neurotransmitters associated with pleasure and tranquility.

2.Having a dog may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Studies show that talking to and petting your pooches are often accompanied by lower blood pressure, and that means a lowered risk for a myriad of different illnesses.

3.Dogs protect children from skin conditions and allergies.

Children who grow up with dogs have a lower risk of developing eczema than those who have cats or no dogs at all. Yes, it’s true! In addition, children also develop fewer pet allergies if they grow up with a dog.

4.Having a dog improves your physical wellbeing and encourages a healthy fitness routine.

Your dog requires daily exercise, and so do you! Dog owners carry the responsibility of playing with and working their dogs, so it only makes sense that dog people tend to be more active.

5.Humans with dogs recover more quickly from illnesses.

Dog owners have a much higher rate of recovery from being sick than non-dog owners. In fact, humans with pooches who suffered from heart attacks were twice as likely to fully recover than those without!

6.Dogs make excellent service and alert animals.

Canines make excellent service companions when trained properly for people with disabilities. They can be trained to bring medication, alleviate a stressful situation for their human, and even detect an approaching epileptic seizure.

7.Children with dogs in their household miss less school.

We all know that children absolutely adore pups, but research has shown that children from dog-owning families have better school attendance due to better overall health and less sickness from having a pup at home.

8.They make excellent watchdogs.

From puppyhood, dogs innately learn to watch and be aware of anything rotten coming your way. Potential burglars are put off by a barking or watching dog in the window. Rottweilers, German Shepherds, and Scottish Terriers are among the top watchdog breeds, but even my fluffy American Eskimo dog is known to be great at alerting families of anything odd or suspicious!

9.Dogs help increase social interactions.

Yes, not only do dogs need care and playtime with their humans, but they need time to socialize with other pups too! This means that their humans will have a chance to socialize while they oversee the puppy playdates. Those of you with pups know that even going on a walk in the neighborhood can bring many friends and start many conversations!

10.Dogs may save your life.

Our lovely canine friends seem to be able to detect the smell of cancer in human bodies. There have been stories of pups who continued to lick and sniff at moles or lumps on their human’s bodies, who eventually found out that those skin conditions were cancerous. In fact, since humans made this discovery, dogs have even been trained in just 3 hours to detect cancer!

Happy National Dog Day !

National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It’s an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.

This day is intended to honor dogs for all that they do for us. In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety. They lead the blind. Dogs aid in search and rescue, and they seek out bombs and drugs.

The second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs in need. On occasion, dogs need us to save them from homelesness and abuse. The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. Lend a hand to help a dog in need today, or any day.

Celebrating National Dog Day can be as easy as giving your four-legged friend a big hug and kiss ! But for those who want to take their love and appreciation to another level.

It is all about how to use e-collar

“An e-collar . it’s just a tool. You can build a house with a hammer, you can break a house with a hammer . it’s how you use it.”    –Blair Diamond

About a year ago, My husband and me decided to expand their family. We decided to adopt a puppy from the local shelter. Together they found the sweetest boxer puppy and decided to bring her home with them. They named their puppy LeLe and that same day went out to buy a bed, food and toys for their new family addition. Little did they know that they’d just adopted a canine with serious obedience issues.

After the first day, I came home from work and found Le had destroyed one of the couch pillows and had gotten into the trash in our kitchen, dragging it all over the house. I figured he was getting used to his new environment and maybe he’d acted out because of that.

LeLe didn’t stop at tearing up the house, he also barked non-stop while my husband and me were at work during the day. After two months of destruction to their house and constant barking, We decide to trying anything to fix this problem.

We were getting complaints from the neighbors and honestly, his barking was starting to drive us a little crazy too. This sweet little dog was turning into a holy terror.

We decided to do some research and came across the Wellturn dog training products. So we want to give it a try and began training LeLe .

At the first. It definitely got his attention. The minute we saw he start to do something wrong like digging in the trash or barking at our neighbors, we’d use the remote to correct his bad behavior. It worked like a charm. After only a couple of corrections, he realized what we wanted of him. It was the perfect solution to our issues.

In the next few weeks. My neighbors noticed a difference in the nuisance barking and now when I get off work and come home to a clean home and a happy puppy.No more notes pinned to our front door complaining about the barking, What is more. No more chewed up books or pillows and no more trash strung around the living room.

The Wellturn WT-774 remote dog collar includes 8 adjustable progressive intensity levels for vibration and statics .for more control to select the correct level needed for training. It also has blue backlit LCD indicating intensity level. Correction can be given from up to 880 yards away and the collar itself is fully waterproof.

I would absolutely recommend this collar to anyone with a dog that is hard-headed or difficult to train. It worked on our LeLe, who is incredibly stubborn, so if it can work on him, I believe it can work on any pet.

There are more different choices about dog training collars and bark control collar ,and electric dog fence system. Find what your need at a reasonable price and start  a amazing training adventure with your love dog.

Electronic Collar Make Everything So Easy

Even though the dog bring a lot happiness to you.there are still certain behavior challenges we all have to face.

The dog usually doesn’t understand why he is being punished,and it creates side-effects that are worse than the behavior you were trying to stop.

Leash pulling

Another very common complaint.Never let your dog pull you to anything, it just rewards him for pulling. If your dog is big , then maybe you will do more exercises to hold your leash tight enough.

Stealing Food

I just can’t stand my dog steal my food. It is not health for both of us. And it can be dangerous if it contains harmful ingredients.

 

How to deal with these problems?

The Misunderstandings About Dog Shock Collar.

Remote dog training shock collar for dogs

Dog Shock Collars Are Inhumane?

–“I think dog shock collars are cruel and inhumane.”

–“They damage the relationship between dog and owner. I’ve never used one .”

–“You should not sell those dog shock collars anymore.”

As a China’s professional dog training collar supplier.We heard  a lot this questions about our shock collars.  there are some misunderstandings in customers and dog lovers.

We hate to use the word “dog shock collar” . Seriously. Most users search for that term, so we use it for our search results; however, a dog shock collar really should be called a remote electronic training collar or an e-collar. In order to let people to know dog shock collar in the right way . we should post this to explain what the dog shocks collar really are  ?

A shock collar as a way to try to control bad behavior such as barking and jumping is very useful in dog training collar.Shock collars for dogs: either love them or hate them. There is not a lot of middle ground.People have formed a lot of opinions based on the opinions of others concerning shock collars. Not too many of these opinions about shock collars are based upon first hand knowledge or fact.

How Does A Shock Collar Work?

It works by sending an electric current through metal contact points within the collar. When a dog engages in an undesirable behavior, those metal contact points send an electric shock into the dog’s neck to discourage him from engaging in that behavior again.

If the product is from a reputable manufacturer, the short answer is no: a dog shock collar does not hurt your dog.

A correctly designed dog training collar, utilizes an electrical stimulation that produces a shallow pulse wave that feels like a “punch” on the skin. This pulse wave is more like the feeling of a static shock. So it is totally safe to your dog.

Shock collars are not the torture devices they are often portrayed to be. Nor are they the magic bullet to fix everything that is wrong with your dog. They are a tool, and in certain circumstances, this tool can be used to shape and modify dog behavior. There are other tools available as well, apart from the shock collar. Some of these are positive and some are negative. With any tool, one has to know how to use it in order for it to be effective.
