Train Your Dog Not to be Nervous with Guests

I was in Palm City on Saturday installing a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a new client and his Bull Terrier, Rocky. (Did you know that General George Patton and Colonel Pappy Boyington (WWII) also had Bull Terriers?)  Well, the installation went quite well and we were able to train Rocky on Saturday afternoon.  He quickly understood that it would be far better to stay around the yard instead of running down the street after kids...

A Calm and Great Walk Does Not Start Crazy

I was in Okeechobee last week installing a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® System for a client and his Labradoodle, Sasha. The installation went pretty smoothly because he didn’t have a log of bushes, paved walkways and other hardscape to transverse.  I got the entire project finished in less than two days.  We trained Sasha to stay near the house and away from the perimeter.  She learned very quickly and things were great.  My client...

Why Playtime with Your Dog is Important

I was in Coral Springs last Tuesday installing a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a client and his Doberman named Francis.  I love Dobies because they are really just happy, friendly dogs.  That was the big problem with Francis.  She always wanted to greet everyone in the neighborhood.  The neighbors loved her, but it was a very large inconvenience for my client.  After our first training session, Francis understood that she...

How to Have Your Dog Meet and Greet Other Dogs

I was in Naples last week installing a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a new client and his Cocker Spaniel named Buddy.  Buddy liked to jump over the back fence and explore all over the neighborhood.  This made it very inconvenient for my client and he wanted his Spaniel to stay put in the yard.  I installed the fence with the wire along the top of his current fence to create a “no fly” zone for Buddy.  It worked...
