  • 🚘 If you plan to leave your dog in the car, there’s a few things to consider.
•
🔥 Of course hot cars kill dogs fast, so that’s your number one consideration.
•
💨 Ventilation is another serious consideration.
•
🔊 Tune in to this short video where we’ll cover an important distinction, and a quick tutorial.

  • ⏰ When you’re 9yo, but you like to act 1yo.

🦷 The old dog Kana does a great job on boxes still, even missing ten teeth.
•
😃 It’s worth the cleanup just to watch her be happy.

  • 💪 Play is super important in building a strong and resilient relationship with your dog.
•
🐕 For most dogs and most owners, physical play offers an amazing vehicle for fostering trust, resilience and understanding.
•
💭 It’s very easy to forget that before the modern-day prevalence of food and prey based training, this was the go-to reward when using positive reinforcement.
•
💡Without a doubt modern dog training puts us all streets ahead of where the dog training world collectively was years ago.
•
🧠 This doesn’t mean we should forget the important lessons we’ve learned along the way.
•
🔥 Kana thrives on these interactions - and I have to admit, they’re some of the most enjoyable moments I share with her each day.
•
👀 I love to watch her act like a dog half her age, express herself, and behave like a little ratbag.

  • 🤬 Does your puppy growl or snap over his food bowl?
•
🙏 If so, know you’re not alone - it’s remarkably common.
•
👎 One of the most common ways of dealing with this issue can make the issue much, much worse - now, and into the future.
•
🧠 You’ll also be happy hear that it’s almost always easy to effectively address when you invest a little forethought and time.

  • Another fascinating post from @tacticalveterinarian • 
#traumatuesday This large breed dog came in after fighting with his housemate of 3 years. Walked in the door as a Shepherd mix, walked out in a head bandage with a #Dobie ear underneath Haha

  • 🎥The main reason I put out social media content isn’t to make money from social media.
•
🎯 It’s to add value to your day - YOU, that person that has the choice to follow a million other social channels and yet chooses to invest in following ours!
•
🗣 So, it makes sense to me to ask you guys what it is you want to see from us.

  • This is a very interesting post - definitely worth a read, and from an account well worth a follow: • 
@tacticalveterinarian Left: normal testicle, right: cryptorchid testicle (abdominal) from a dog. The lil' bugger was wayyy up near the kidney and took me 30mins to find. (For any asking, neutering was required for treatment of BPH)
.
.
Sometimes veterinarians have the strangest phone conversations, how was your lunch? "Ehh, it was ok, missed most of it looking for a small retained testicle"

Enjoying a moment together with Snap and Kana

🥶 Man it’s cold in Melbourne today. 📧 I had to swing past the office this morning and knock out some emails, as well as finish a couple of reports. 🔥 I threw the heater on, but I knew from the way the dogs cuddled up closely on the couch that it wasn’t doing too […]

Anxiety in dogs cannot be ‘trained away’

💊 It’s a hard pill for some folks to swallow, but it’s 100% true. 🚫 If you punish the very behaviours that allow you to infer the dog is feeling anxious in the first place, then using the absence of that behaviour in that context as a basis to claim that the dog is no […]

Why did your dog's training work?

Your dog training may not work for the reason you think it does

🎉 Congratulations – you’ve produced a training outcome with your dog that you’re happy with. 🐕 The truth is that for the most part, most dogs will learn basic things pretty well in most training programs. 🧠 After all, the ability of the dog to adapt and learn in the human world is perhaps the main […]
