Good Buddy Dog Training takes on a new trainer, Amy Rudd, as they expand their service area.

RIO RANCHO, NM /ACCESSWIRE/October 21, 2022/ Paul Falardeau started Good buddy dog ​​training in 2018, offering several training programs for puppies and adult dogs. And his business has been so successful that now Falardeau has recently hired another full-time trainer and is expanding his service area to include the greater Albuquerque area.

To learn more about Good Buddy dog ​​training, visit https://goodbuddydogtraining.com/.

Falardeau shared that during COVID, there were a lot of purchased and adopted dogs who never received the training and socialization they needed. Of course, this was just a side effect of people staying home and limiting their exposure to others.

What this means for Good Buddy now is that there is an influx of people looking for individual dog training in the Albuquerque area. Falardeau responded to demand by doubling its capacity and hiring another full-time dog trainer, Amy Rudd. Rudd shared,

“I love working with dogs and their owners one-on-one and having the ability to really personalize their training. Group dog training is good for socialization, but it doesn’t really help many dogs learn the skills they need. Individual training is much better for this.”

Rudd’s interest in dog training dates back to her teenage years when she took her first dog training course at the age of 13. After high school, Rudd went to Animal Behavior College to become a professional dog trainer and in the years that followed worked with many different dogs, including many shelter dogs. She has also spent over five years training service dogs.

While Falardeau previously focused most of his efforts serving Rio Rancho dog owners, Rudd’s presence on the team will allow Good Buddy Dog Training to help more pets and their owners in Albuquerque as well.

About Good Buddy Dog Training

Good buddy dog ​​training provides one-on-one in-home training for dogs in Rio Rancho and the Albuquerque metro area. Focusing on bonding dogs and their owners, Good Buddy offers puppy training, adult dog training, and advanced dog training.

Meera Jethwa traded a glamorous corporate life for a canine Mary Poppins life and it was a resounding success

Don’t worry if you’re at Longton’s Golden Ball on a Sunday afternoon and see ten perfectly polite puppies enjoying individual roast dinners, watched over by a lady dressed as Mary Poppins. You haven’t had a stronger drink than you think, it’s just Meera Puppins and her proteges, socializing while enjoying a very pleasant and civilized Sunday lunch at their local hostelry.

Meera, based in Penwortham, manages Meera Puppins; a positive puppy socialization and training company that recently nominated her for Best Dog Trainer in the Dog Friendly Awards and was a finalist in the Trailblazer Awards.

This is all the more remarkable considering that just three years ago, Meera was a highly successful jet set Spanish translator for an investment bank in London. She had never owned a dog until she was 31, when she and her partner at the time adopted a rescue dog.

“She had a lot of problems. It was a steep learning curve, but I didn’t mind a bit,” says Meera, who was forced to leave her dog when she separated from her partner.

‘Something had changed in me. I wanted to train puppies using caring, positive and gentle techniques. I don’t believe in adversarial training and I don’t believe in the reasoning that a puppy should just “get used to” something they don’t like. If a child was terrified of spiders, we wouldn’t put them in a room with spiders and tell them to get used to them,” says Meera.

She gave up her role in the business to become a puppy trainer, working at a veterinarian and undergoing an intense period of study in puppy development, socialization training and canine first aid. She also found herself another rescue lurcher. And then the lockdown happened. So Meera and her lurcher left London and took the train to Preston.

“My parents were shocked. I was there on their doorstep with an anxious holidaymaker and a suitcase. Naturally they were worried that I had given up on a great career, but they are wonderful parents and they helped me. We all, including puppies, need the trust and security of our loved ones if we are to succeed,” says Meera, who now felt the time was right to start Meera Puppins.

“I’m a big fan of Mary Poppins: she comes when you need her, full of calm common sense and solves problems like magic. That’s what I wanted to do and that’s why I called the company Meera Puppins. When training or socializing puppies, I wear an Edwardian nanny outfit and carry a mat bag, just like Mary Poppins,” she adds Meera

She thinks the earlier puppies can be socialized, the better. But the lockdown meant she wasn’t able to meet the puppies personally, so she used the time to launch her now hugely successful website.

“It has lots of useful and free information, such as the best puppy walks and I’ve gone through them all, taking notes as I go. There are also lists of puppy-friendly businesses and lots of general advice on how to train a perfectly polite puppy,” says Meera, who also uses the website to answer questions, such as how to keep a puppy from drink in the toilet. Answer: check that he is not thirsty and lower the seat!

Meera faces much more serious issues than that, including puppies that suffer from separation anxiety, are destructive, bark constantly, need sleep training, or are afraid of other dogs and people. There is also a monthly web subscription course – Puppy Club – which provides access to training tips and more personalized advice.

When the lockdown was lifted, Meera was also able to travel in order to meet individual puppies.

“I call it my Problem to Perfect program,” she says. “Sometimes owners think they’ve failed if they have a problem puppy, but of course that’s not the case. Training a puppy can be exhausting and owners need to be kind to themselves as well as the puppy. There is no miracle solution and that is why I am not judging anyone.

Meera has heaps of thankful owner cards – sometimes also signed with a paw print – and her Social Sundays, giving the pups a chance to socialize constructively, have become a local phenomenon.

The puppies – and owners – meet at the Golden Ball, greet each other politely and then fall into a crocodile, walking in pairs to Longton Nature Reserve. Then it’s back to the Ballon d’Or for Sunday lunch.

“I go to the front to lead, I raise my Meera Puppins umbrella and let’s go!” They get used to traffic, each other and wildlife and they are encouraged to be calm and polite. We have breaks to rest and practice our manners and then the reward is a Sunday roast for the puppies and humans and we all have a great time,” says Meera.

Only ten puppies can enter and there is a waiting list – people apply as soon as they decide they want a puppy…a bit like signing up at Eton.

Meera also organizes courses for teenage dogs: Tearaway Teenagers.

“Like some human teenagers, some want to push boundaries, forget about all their mannerisms and they can be a handful. It’s just nature’s way and will eventually settle down. Waiting can be stressful though, and that’s where my Tearaway Teenager course comes in,” says Meera who, encouraged by her many fans, writes The Meera Puppins Guide to Puppies.

As Mary Poppins says, “In every job there is an element of pleasure. And that’s exactly what Meera Puppins brings to the puppy world.

Dear Kendal,
Halloween is my family’s favorite time of year, but our dog Debbie hates it! She is frightened by decorations – especially moving figures – and barks nonstop when cheaters ring our doorbell.
I’ve gotten to the point where I’m considering sending my kids to my sister’s house just so they can have a Halloween without Debbie freaking out every time she sees a 7 year old Dracula with a pillowcase full of sweets. I just wish she was less crazy for our family’s favorite event of the year. To help!
-Madison


Dear Madison,
Halloween can indeed be a stressful time for our four-legged friends. Ghouls, vampires, ghosts, zombies and monsters suddenly materialize on the once safe streets as masked and hooded figures lurk to the door! In the days leading up to Halloween, I suggest working on the following skills and hope Debbie – and your family’s spooky night – is a lot less stressful.
The first training exercise I recommend doing with Debbie is called Behavior Adjustment Training, or BAT. Dog trainers will use BAT to help desensitize dogs to any perceived threatening stimulus (vacuum cleaners, brooms, motorcycles, other dogs, men wearing hats, etc.)
To start this exercise, you’ll need any Halloween decorations that Debbie doesn’t like (for this example, I’m going to use a laughing clown display) and some treats. Put the clown in an open space and put Debbie on a leash. As you approach the clown, watch Debbie for any signs of stress. Ideally, you’ll want to stop walking before he starts barking or shows signs of worsening discomfort. Stand still and let her watch the clown without any strain on your leash. When he looks away from the clown or, better yet, looks at you, give him a treat and quickly move away from the clown. After backing up a few feet, turn heels and return to the display, stopping again just before Debbie barks or rushes. Wait for her to stop focusing on the perceived threat and focus on you, then repeat the exercise while walking away. With each successful repetition, you should find that you are able to get closer and closer to the clown. When Debbie is relaxed even sitting near the clown, encourage her to sniff him around and throw some treats at his feet so she can investigate and make sure there is in fact nothing to worry about.
It may seem counterintuitive to walk away from the clown once Debbie is looking at you, but it’s very important to eliminate the stressor as a reward rather than getting closer to the clown and rendering the effort of Debbie to ignore it. Once Debbie ignores the clown and can focus on you, change the clown to another decoration or go for a walk around your neighborhood. Whenever Debbie starts to get scared, pause, let her watch, and reward her by coming back on your way. came when she looks at you. Your rides will be full of zigzags and starts and stops, but when implemented correctly, BATs can be very effective in a remarkably short time. Working with a professional trainer is always advisable if you are frustrated or not seeing any progress.
Besides doing BAT on your daily walks, I also recommend getting Debbie familiar with the idea of ​​costumes. It’s a great chance to rummage through your closet and pull out last year’s Dracula cape and teeth, Wonder Woman skirt, and Hulk body paint. The best time to get Debbie used to the weird clothes humans wear is before Halloween night, so put on your witch hat while you do the chores.
While you’re desensitizing the holiday decorations and familiarizing Debbie with your costumes, you can tackle the last and arguably most difficult part of the evening ahead; the doorbell. To lessen the excitement that the doorbell usually brings, you can work with your kids to get them in and out of the house frequently. Every time someone comes in, they have to ring the doorbell, wait for Debbie to stop barking and be completely quiet, then come in and reward her with a treat. Then leave and repeat. You should find Debbie barking less and less as the process of ringing the doorbell and people coming and going normalizes.
If Halloween is right around the corner and you aren’t able to get many successful workouts under your belt, you may want to consider consulting your vet about a calming aid to help Debbie get through the holidays. in the greatest possible comfort.
Hope this helps and you have a spooky and fun Halloween!

A line of dogs was set up as the procession – led by Rose’s two Border Collies, Jack and Bryn – passed the chapel ahead of the service.

Rose’s sister Catherine Gardner said: ‘We couldn’t have had a funeral without dogs. There were so many she had an impact on.

The sister recalled how during Rose’s wedding in 2013, her dog Bryn was tasked with playing an influential role. “When they asked if anyone was against their marriage, Bryn barked,” Catherine said.

Terry added, “She was very spontaneous and could connect with anyone.”

Russell Becque, founder of Portsmouth dog training school The Academy of Modern Canine Behavior and Training, said he spotted Rosie’s talents with dogs many years ago before securing her services .

She went from a trainee trainer to a highly qualified Kennel Club certified trainer – which was introduced to her at Crufts.

Rosie had also taken over the management of the Portsmouth branch of the Academy.

He added: “Everyone who met Rose loved her. She was very special and someone with a good sense of humor.

Barbara Hannam of the West End School of Dog Training, who Rose would compete with and bring her son to, said: ‘You couldn’t find a nicer person. She was quick-witted and a happy person who never dwelt on problems.

Jean Howells of the Hampshire Working Trials Society said she met Rose in Emsworth when she trained a Staffy who somehow came second in a competition. “Rose loved dogs,” she said.

Dog trainer friend Jodie Philips, who adopted Rose’s two dogs, said: ‘Dogs were her life. As a coach, she knew her stuff.

Ian Spanner, Rose’s ex-husband and father of their eight-year-old son Joel, remembers meeting her at a club. “I went to give him a flaming sambuca but his hand went up in flames. She must have reached out and put it out in a cocktail. It broke the ice between us,” he said.

David Newnham, whose wife Lisa was a close friend of Rose, said: ‘She was always happy. It’s very sad.’

Hello Kendal,
My roommate and I are getting ready to pick up an adorable eight week old Husky puppy and were wondering if you have any advice for new dog parents on what we should buy before he arrives? We researched online and spoke with friends and family, but the deluge of information – most of it conflicting – overwhelmed us. What do you suggest we should do to prepare for Harvey’s arrival?
Count the days!
-Marilyn and Samantha


Dear Marilyn and Samantha,
Congratulations on the newest addition to your household! Puppy life is all too short in the lives of our four-legged best friends, and we understand the excitement!
My husband and I raise and train puppies every year in our home, and the first item to cross off our to-do list is to schedule an appointment with our local veterinarian.
It’s important to help your puppy feel comfortable and safe around healthcare professionals. They can check him up, start his shooting schedule, and microchip him so that if he ever gets lost, he can be easily identified. Building a strong relationship with your veterinarian, groomer, and other canine professionals who will interact with your pup regularly is invaluable in teaching him early on that being touched and handled is safe and fun.
Then we go shopping! When it comes to gear, you can choose to be as minimalistic or as wild as you want. My first purchase is usually to find a safe place to sleep. Because Huskies tend to get hot, you may find a gel cooling pad or raised platform mesh bed is preferable to a fleece pad. With young puppies, I suggest introducing the bed with supervision for the first few days to make sure he doesn’t chew on it.
We strongly suggest that you train your puppy to sleep alone in a crate from the first night. It can be very tempting to cuddle up in bed with your adorable pup, but good crate training helps enormously with potty training and keeps curious and stray puppies safe.
Because your pup will grow to be a big dog, I recommend buying a crate with a divider so that as he grows you can adjust the size of the space available. I prefer collapsible metal crates with a divider for my young puppies at home and in the car because the trays pull out easily and they’re relatively easy to handle. I use heavy plastic sided crates in my home for my adult dogs and soft sided travel crates when we work overseas.
When preparing a puppy, I will also set aside a bowl of water and food. I prefer my dog ​​bowls to be stainless steel because studies show that steel collects less bacteria than plastic or ceramic. I also buy kibbles made specifically for puppies because they contain a higher percentage of protein and other essential nutrients for growing dogs. Age-appropriate teethers are also important for channeling a growing puppy’s insatiable need to chew. Each pup has their own preference for chew toy texture, size, and shape, so have fun choosing from a wide selection. Rawhides and rope toys are strongly discouraged as they can cause intestinal blockages.
I always suggest clients use a non-flexible leash and a simple collar to start their puppy journey. A long leash is useful to keep in the garden for quiet exploration with supervision, and I usually keep a shorter leash in my car to secure our pup for transport. Remember to remove your puppy’s collar before putting him in the crate or letting him play with other dogs.
Your pup may come with official papers proclaiming his breed and registration, his initial health check, and any vaccinations he has ever had. I add relevant receipts and documentation to this record as our pup matures, such as training logs and temperament evaluations. If you choose to purchase pet insurance, you may include this information in this record. Instead of keeping a physical folder with your dog’s information, you can scan and save the documents to a USB drive or purchase a collar with a QR code that links that information to the cloud.
Finally, I coordinate with my friends and family to begin socializing our new puppy. We host wine and cheese nights and everyone is encouraged to interact with our newest family member. I like to expose young dogs safely and slowly to uniformed police and firefighters, men in hats and sunglasses, and soft-touch mature children.

Teen Dog Trainer Teaching All Pooches New Tricks | New https://cochranedogtraining.com/teen-dog-trainer-teaching-all-pooches-new-tricks-new/ Thu, 29 Sep 2022 10:04:33 +0000 https://cochranedogtraining.com/teen-dog-trainer-teaching-all-pooches-new-tricks-new/ Dogs, like humans, should learn basic life skills and Trinity Pierce leads the pack with grace. “It’s important because it teaches your dog right from wrong.

Dogs, like humans, should learn basic life skills and Trinity Pierce leads the pack with grace.

“It’s important because it teaches your dog right from wrong. I see a lot of dogs that are out of control because dogs don’t know any better, like, they jump on you. A dog won’t know that this isn’t good so you have to teach them,” said Pierce, a certified dog trainer. THE STAR Wednesday.

Although her love for animals developed from an early age, Pierce discovered her calling at the age of 13, when she began volunteering at a “dog shelter” in the US state. of Virginia, where she currently resides. The 19-year-old, of Jamaican descent, realized that there was more to “sitting and watching them” in caring for dogs.

“I used to watch TV a lot and see how people trained their dogs. So when I started working at the shelter, I had them [the animals] doing simple things like sitting or lying down, just stuff like that. But then I started working on my craft with my own animals,” she said. To improve her skills, she got certified by taking an online course.

According to Pierce, dog training involves patience, consistency, and repetition. These three components, she said, are what guarantee great results and smart, well-trained dogs.

“I taught my dog ​​how to jump through a hoop, how to shake my hand, how to high-five, how to spin in a circle, how to weave [go through her legs] and I taught my dog ​​to bow,” Pierce said.

Noting that there is a viable market for dog trainers, citing that there are more pet owners in Jamaica. The best part of dog training for Pierce is seeing the results. She was careful to note that dog training, while fun, can also be frustrating when the results aren’t there.

“[When] you teach your dog a new trick and you see this result, it’s really amazing. Your dog might leave the way he was, say maybe your dog was aggressive, and then continue on this journey with your dog, that growth is probably the most comforting thing you can feel. It’s kind of like a happy moment, even for the dog,” the Jamaican-born 19-year-old told the press team.

Her future plans are to enroll in a university to begin studies in veterinary science.
