Spring is finally in the air. The sun is shining and the flowers are popping up so it is time for new beginnings.
To help you start some fresh activities with your dog, we are hosting a giveaway of The Big Book of Tricks for the Best Dog Ever, a brilliant dog training book co-written by my talented friends author, trainer, fellow film-maker and passionate rescue advocate Larry Kay of Positively Woof and top trainer, rescue advocate and amazing performer Chris Perondi.
Speaking of spring, don’t forget that it is flea and tick season. Be sure to check these tick and flea tips here, and don’t forget to schedule a check-in with your vet.
While we may be able to get outside a little more, many of us are still not back to our normal lives and are probably going a little crazy with the COVID crisis and all the awful news. One of the things I do to keep Kilo the Pug and I happy is do trick training. I find it is a great way to bond and play. For our post and video showing 20 easy tricks you can teach your dog featuring Kilo the Pug Click HERE.
“Trick training is best when it’s rewarding and fun. Positive reinforcement dog training means that we praise and reward our dog’s efforts and progress, while ignoring most mistakes. Positive dog training can help make a dog more sociable and builds our bond. Positive trick training builds a dog’s self-confidence and reveals the inner “movie star” within every dog.” Larry.

Kilo and I are currently working on roll over, take a bow, look shy, boing boing, weaving, dancing, jump over my arm and a few others. We do 5 minutes at a time, usually twice a day and only at home for our own enjoyment, although he does like the extra rewards if we film.
You can see how I taught Kilo “paw” and all the other associated paw tricks here.
