Shape A Pup - Where Dog Training Is Fun


 

August Training Tip:

DOG TO DOG GREETINGS:  It is important that we never allow our dogs to go up to another dog regardless of whether you know the owner and dog or how friendly the dog seems.  This is especially true when dogs are leashed.  Dogs consider this to be rude behavior and most dogs do not appreciate another dog in their space.  The situation can quickly go south.  Just as we do not like to have people in our face, neither do our dogs.
