Are you Experiencing Unwanted Dog Behaviors?!

Did you know that sometimes the easiest way to get rid of an unwanted  behavior is to ignore it?  Most of the time dogs turn to barking and jumping to get our attention.  They don’t care if it is positive or negative attention, they just know it works to get a reaction out of us. So if we learn to ignore these unwanted behaviors, they will start to go away. If we learn to reinforce the behaviors we like, the dogs will start to offer those behaviors instead of the unwanted behaviors.  When was the last time you said “good girl” or “good boy” to your dog while they were lying down and being quiet? To learn more about reinforcing the behaviors we want in our dogs, sign up for one of our classes held here at Nature’s Feed.  Please contact us for a current class schedule.

Chemical flea and tick control can cause skin irritations and can contribute to endocrine issues.
