Hello everyone, and welcome back to a brand new episode of Dog Sense. This one is such an exciting one!!
This week, Sarah and I will be discussing something every dog owner should know: How to safely travel in your car with your dog!
Yes, believe it or not (and I hope that you do actually believe it), traveling in a car with your canine best friend isn't as straightforward as you might think.
In fact, even a 10-minute trip to the vet will need planning and preparation. So, a long trip with your dog will need even more work!
And well, we thought, why not help you with that?!
Adventure walks are a great way to help your puppy develop all the skills he needs to be a great adult dog.
And, the best thing about them, is that you can start them even before your puppy is fully vaccinated (although still check with your vet first).
This is because adventure walks are usually done in empty places, which means your canine best friend is less likely to pick up some sort of bug or illness. Just make sure to keep an eye on him and use common sense.
Life isn’t fair, and your dogs need to know that. Having different rules for different dogs might make you feel bad, but it’s a necessary evil. So, don’t let guilt ruin your dog training!
The one thing we always tell our students is to start slow. Don’t go right into forcing a nose-to-nose interaction between the dogs, making them play together right away, or making them share a really small space.
