A Short Story About My Dog!

When I first got my dog she was not even six weeks old. My aunt had just bread one of there best female hunters and there's (and everyone's favorite) male dogs, and out of the litter there was seven pups. We loved to go up there and play with them, so the week before the  people wanting the dogs where coming to get them, my aunt told us they had a few with no homes. So we were allowed to have one.

Sunny is the runt of the litter and she was not my first choice. I wanted the fat fluffy one, but my mom had her heart set on this little tiny girl. So we took her home and while on our way sunny was as quiet as a mouse, we were surprised we had just taken her away from her mom and brothers a week early and she wasn't whining. When we got home the first thing she did was go to the lawn and use the bathroom. We were really confused my aunt said she had not trained them but this 5 week old pup didn't go into the house and do her business inside, she stayed outside and went. At this point is when I knew mom chose the right one.
This was the night we brought her home!

She is smart and well behaved pup, even though she is really hyper. My aunt and uncle think shes ill-mannered, she’s really not, cause she knows what shes allowed to do and what shes not. I love my dog very much and nothing will ever change that. She is the first dog my mom and dad let me train myself and even though I know she won't be coming with me when I move out and go to college. I know when I come back and visit she will still be the same dog that I have came to love very much.
We still have no idea how she got up there!

Veteran Therapy Dog Training

dog training therapy

Rep. Steve Stivers has created a dog training program to help Veterans with  post-traumatic stress. "As a nation, we share a moral obligation to care for our veterans when they return home and to provide them with meaningful therapies to help them deal with any service-related issues they may have — whether physical or mental,I have personally met veterans whose lives have been dramatically improved through working with a service dog," Stivers said in a statement.  They find dogs who have past the test to be a therapy dog's, mostly puppy's, and pair them with a Veteran with PTSD. They hope by doing this it will help the Veterans and maybe make it possibly for them to get jobs and not become homeless.

I fell that they should do this as I have family who are Veterans and even though they do not have PTSD it would still work well. There's nothing that heals people more then a loving companion and dogs are perfect for the roll.

The Reson I am Writing This Blog

Like most people I don't really like ill-mannered pets. I also don't like when people can’t care or train their pets the right why. I think people who abuse their pets mostly do it because they don't know how to make their pets listen. My dog loves my little sister because she never punishes her and my sister is always letting her do things that the dog knows she’s not allowed to do. This is because my sister does not know how to train, along with her many of people do this because they’re afraid or don't know when to punish the dog. 

I also think if you are a first time pet owner you should do a lot of research for caring for that certain animal. Not too long ago I got a rabbit a pet. I have wanted a rabbit for half my life, but before I went and picked up my rabbit I got her cage ready and spent much time on the Internet looking up how to train and care for her, now she’s the happiest rabbit I have ever seen.  So instead of spending time you may not have looking for how to train an animal just leave it to me to find the information for you.

why this blog?

What is one thing that we all think about when we get a new pet? For me it’s always how do I train you to do things I want? Sit. Stay.  Lay down. Roll over. Do your business outside.  All things we all want our pets to do, but they won’t do that without continues training. I love all animals but I hate when they miss behave. This is why I train all my pets to know what they can and cannot do. We all have question on how and what tricks we can teach them. Well I will take on these challenges and try to find the best and fastest way to train your pet.

 You may also maybe wondering what’s the best way to care for your pet. I will go over what the right way to care for your pet. The right amount of feed, how often you should take your pet out for exercise (which should be everyday or as often as you can), and how often to groom your pet.  For my blog, I’m going to not only give helpful hints on training a pet but the best way to care for your pet as well.  As I know a lot about training dogs and I will love to try training rabbits, cats, and any pet that you may have questions on how to train or care for. 

If you have any questions or want to suggest an animal you would like to know how to train and care for just leave me a comment.
