Names are very important for our lives while having a new name for your dog you want to give the cutest and the best name and Petfinder.com has just announced its annual ranking for dog and cat names, and for the fourth repeated year in a row, “Buddy” fetched the top spot as the most popular name for adoptable dogs. For cats, “Lucy” once again purred its way to first place, barely beating “Midnight” for the No. 1 adoptable cat ranking.

Most people do not think about it this way but dog training starts from the first day that your dog settles.

You will learn basic dog training commands and hand signals as well as the right way of train a dog with dog training dvds. Well-mannered trained dogs are joyful companions of our lives.

The main thing is to not take it personal. The dog isn’t ignoring or defying you, but rather, over stimulated, so his brain can’t process all things at once. Natural dog behaviors, such as sniffing things and looking at critters get focused on, because they are in his genes, things like human language, tricks and the person he sees all the time.

Repeating dog training commands over and over again will not help you or your dog. If your dog doesn’t respond after 1-2 times, try to figure out why and remedy it, then try again, without the remedy your dog will never listen to you. Read the rest of this entry »

Keeping your puppy calm might be hard for you at the beginning. They learn fast and have been nothing but great, but puppies are always seemed to be in a really hyper mood. When you walk they want to walk in front of you or just jump on you, they might think that they are in an alpha position.

All these behaviors are perfectly normal puppy behavior and is not about trying to dominate you. So no worries, yet! He’s just being happy to see you and wants to get close to you. Ideally dogs wants to get “muzzle to muzzle” like he would with another dog. That is the reason of jumping. When your dogs jump, try to ignore them, so they will just stop jumping.
