Friday August 1st, 2014 at 06:35 AMWe've been invited to join the writing process tour by Kelsie from It's Dog or Nothing. I've been having so much fun reading about everyone's process so when Kelsie tagged me to do this, I was so excited! 1. What am I working on? Good question! Having a new "puppy" in the house again after 4 years has really turned this house upside down.

She is five years old. She was surrendered by her owner in North Carolina because her dad had spinal surgery and her moms business was closing. They wanted Ruby to have the best possible...

Most of us learn this lesson on a daily basis and its no different in training or behavior modification. Providing reinforcement at the correct time is critical in teaching your dog cues or redirecting their attention from a feared stimulus. If you have to dig in your pocket for that tasty morsel to reward your dog for performing the requested task, the moment can get away from you. Utilizing a sound (such as the clicker) will prevent the need to reach for a treat at that precise second.

Of course, that's for motion pictures. Having your character come up from the bottom of the frame is considered a classic humor technique (check it out with your fave comedy!). *** We're in our last week of voting (yay)! You have our heartfelt thanks! Friday August 1st, 2014 at 04:27 AMAt home in Dallas, Milt takes his high-security position very, very serious. Here in New York, without a foyer flanked by windows, Milton has kind of been out of a job. Our goldendoodle's saving grace though is these living windows that allow him to at least keep close tabs on the front yard.
