I train dogs and puppies (and parrots and other animals) and teach others how to train their pets using positive reinforcement. That means teaching behaviors by building contingencies between those behaviors with consequences the learner values. And food is the most common form or positive reinforcement used in teaching new behaviors. Small pieces packed with savory flavor and scent. Most often ‘people food’. But occasionally clients are reluctant to use ‘people food’ in training. I thought it would be worth addressing why ‘people food’ is good for dog training in this blog post. When I hear an objection to using ‘people food’, it falls into two categories: dog health and dog behavior. Let’s look at both. Behavior Arguments Clients may tell me they do not want to use human food because that will encourage their dog to do begging behaviors while they are eating or it will encourage their dog…Read More
If you’ve lost a dog before, you know the sigh of relief you feel when they’re found. But imagine what would happen if you knew where your lost dog was, but couldn’t get them back. That’s what Kansas dog parent Jessica Palacio faced. Her dog Capone got lost on March 31st, and she searched everywhere for him. Then, Unleashed Pet Rescue, where she had adopted him, found him and told her to come pick him up. But when she did, the rescue refused to return Capone. The exact reasoning is still unclear, but it seems like there’s a lot more to the story. Image: Screenshot, fox4kc.com Mixed Messages Palacio first received an email from the rescue on Easter. It stated that they found her lost dog and that there would be some fees to get him back. They were able to confirm that Capone was her dog because of his…Read More

There’s no concept that feels as timeless as a human’s love for their dogs. They’re members of the family, so we tend to apply many of our human traditions to them: birthday celebrations, Halloween costumes, and ultimately funeral or memorial ceremonies. In many cultures, traditional burial rites involve dedicating a headstone in honor of the person lost. So naturally, people often remember their lost pets the same way. That doesn’t seem to have changed much at all over the last 80 years, as a recent discovery in a local park indicates. Lora Peppers/Findagrave.com Zach Medlin was walking his dog, Serena, in Kiroli Park in West Monroe, Louisiana, when he noticed something slightly hidden. Upon closer inspection, Medlin saw that it was an engraved stone marker. This piqued his interest, Medlin told The Dodo. “The inscription was covered by some pine straw. So I had to move the pine straw out of…Read More
Film director Ron Howard has always been incredibly close to his dogs. His Collie named Cooper was by his side for 13 years and his Great Pyrenees named Puddin is a newer addition to the family. He loved both of the pups very much, so he couldn’t even imagine life without them. But sadly, at the start of April 2021, he announced that Cooper had passed away. Cooper grew up to be an incredibly important family member for Howard. He passed away peacefully, but it’s clear that he’ll never be forgotten. Howard made that clear when he posted a heartwarming tribute. Image: @realronhoward/Instagram A Celebrity’s Best Friend The award-winning film director and producer lived through many accomplishments with a dog by his side. He had Cooper since the dog was just a tiny puppy, and their bond grew more and more as the days went on. Cooper was an incredibly…Read More
Brody and Baby-L – The bond builds and the reports come in Jessica’s first reports come in: JDP October 22, 2018, 9:03 am Things are going well. This weekend was sweet – I was on the couch giving Logan a bottle when Brody asked to snuggle. He burrowed right in with us, but I had a pillow in between the two just for an extra buffer. Logan was also sleepy and not grabby at that particular moment. Since they were both calm, it was a nice 10 minutes! Then Brody got hot under the blanket and crawled out for some air Brody burrowed in right next to Baby-L When our dog is calmly snuggled next to us with our body (and even an extra pillow) between dog and baby, we can insure all stays calm and safe as we continue to build their bond. Trouble passing other dogs… Because…Read More

Fruits and veggies are a mainstay in the human diet because of their nutritional value – vitamins, fiber and minerals. These tasty and nutritious foods can also be beneficial to your dog’s health – strengthening their immune system, aiding digestion, reducing inflammation, and helping them fend off obesity.
