You Don't Need the Bells Heres what I know about potty training dogs, and even young puppies. It can be as simple as we want to make it. It can also be as complicated as we want to make it. That may seem a bit obvious, but think on that a minute (Ill wait).

  • #Doga Bonding with No Hands

    Square_140_cobra_med_lowwby Carrie Boyko, CEB While working in the Cobra and Upward Facing Dog poses, you'll soon find that reaching out to bond with your dog takes a bit of creativity. Besides setting a treat jar on the corner of the mat, I make use of my voice, eye contact and smooches. Asking for a "watch me" in conjunction with your dog's name quickly gets their attention on you when your hands are busy supporting your body. I guess I started this post a bit backwards--bonding first. Now let's address the...

  • Improving Your Cobra Pose with Fido's Help

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Friday August 22nd, 2014 at 09:00 PM

    by Carrie Boyko, CEB Just getting started with #doga? Cobra pose is a great way to slowly and gently move your back's flexibility along while simultaneously strengthening it. Keep our initial suggestions in mind as you work on this for just a few minutes each day. Remember that daily practice--even 2 minutes on just a few poses each--is better than 15-30 minutes once or even twice weekly. You'll make progress far faster and feel better as a result. I'm finding that the dogs' companionship is...

    from All Things Dog Blog

    Thursday August 21st, 2014 at 07:00 AM

    Square_140_pby Carrie Boyko, CEB This week the kids in our area are heading back to school. Classes have begun and the daytime play groups are now absent from the street outside my office window. I'll admit it's much more quiet for work, but the dogs miss watching the children play. Good and bad; the yin and yang of life continues. The unofficial end to Summer has arrived, even as the temperatures remain in the upper 90s. For those of us in Florida, another 6 weeks of miserable heat is yet to come. Now...
