Harmony Farm Kennel Features Our Free "Ask The Dog Trainer" Forum
At Harmony Farm Kennel near Kamloops, BC we strive to offer exceptional dog boarding kennel services, and we are honoured to care for and get to know many a dog of all sizes and temperaments! We are often asked a diversity of dog training questions by dog owners in the course of our day-to-day work. In our devotion to dogs, we hope to provide our clients with as many resources as possible to raise happy, healthy canine companions.
Specializing in dog boarding, customized care, health and safety of all types of breeds and 'doganalities', Harmony Farm Kennel thought it would be great to open a forum in which anyone with a question about dog training could present their questions and concerns to a professional dog trainer and...actually get an answer!
We all know that any time any person is in the vicinity of any dog, they are training - whether they are aware of their effect or not. Just as it takes a whole community to raise a child, each dog benefits from having many people who care about his/her well-being and safety. Having said that, many dog owners have some interesting situations that require more specific help.
We are thankful to Sylvia Currie, MA, BEd for sharing her extensive working knowledge and wisdom about dog-human relationships via Harmony Farm Kennel's free Ask the Trainer forum. Sylvia addresses specific questions that dog owners have about dog training and behaviour issues that are causing some concern. This forum includes archived educational articles from Chris McKay, who is presently with the Kamloops BCSPCA.
Our contributing dog experts have addressed many questions about dog aggression in various situations, and overprotective tendencies in some dogs, and how to deal with them. Dog owners have also asked the dog trainer questions about working on recall with dogs, how to help with dog timidity and nervous behaviours, what to do for a puppy crying at night, and more. The suggestions given are strength-based, practical, and easy to try out with your dog. Any or all of these Q/As may be useful to other dog owners faced with similar concerns.
The dog trainer's suggestions also reveal a deep understanding and empathy for the fact that dogs are complex beings with emotions and reactions that change over time from puppyhood to old age, and they may change in response to past trauma and different situations, such as being on a leash.
The Ask The Trainer page is user friendly! Just fill in the form with your question, press Submit, and then look forward to knowledgeable, supportive suggestions along with references, and referrals in some cases! Wow!
