Tanya's Training Tips

Training for perfect doggy manners starts in the home. Dogs view the world in black and white. Therefore, rules that we set up at home will apply everywhere else. With this in mind be careful what you teach your furry friend. What may be acceptable to you at home may not be the case when you and your buddy go visiting.  Allowing your dog access to places like sofas and beds without invitation may not be welcomed everywhere and may lead to heirarchy disputes.

A simple way to solve this issue is to train your dog only to lie where his/her blanket is. Make lying on the blanket very rewarding and your dog will soon be able to discriminate where it can lie (sofa, bed, floor) depending where the blanket is placed.
