WENDELL — Dogs are quite sensitive to their environment.
You may be able to train your canine to sit when you’re in your living room. But how about when you’re at a dog park, surrounded by overzealous Jack Russell terriers and annoying Chihuahuas? Dogs’ two biggest distractions are people and other dogs.
Are you having a rrrruff time training your dog and keeping him away from trouble? Is he taking ages to develop some people skills and improve his corgnitive behavior? Garmin has a solution to make your little canine the most puppylar in the park, on the street, and at home. It's a Bluetooth training and activity tracker called the Delta Smart and it costs a wooffing $149.99.

Max charges into an unfamiliar room and bellows out a deep hollow bark. An 18-month-old pit bull terrier weighing over 100 pounds, Max provokes a flurry of woofs from an unnerved beagle across the room..
Holding Max's leash is Jeffrey Kohn, his owner and a six-year Army veteran, who decided to visit the Dunes Dog Training Club in Hebron after stumbling across the place while browsing the Internet.
I’ve been a dog trainer long enough (almost 20 years) to see a massive change in the perception of the field. It used to be considered more a hobby than a job, even though many of us were already making a living doing it full time.
I believe each dog, including those of the same breed, have different personalities, therefore, they will all react differently in their relationships with humans. Whoever is going to be the primary master should start building the relationship, becoming friends so to speak. Serious training progress becomes easy when the dog respects you and cares about pleasing you so that a master's mild disapproval redirects the dog's behavior.
DALLAS COUNTY (WBAP/KLIF News) Some inmates in the Dallas County jail will get to work with dogs while learning a new skill. Dallas County Commissioners approved the program called “Home for Hounds.” The facility will be the first county jail in the state to start a dog-training program, according to the Dallas Morning News. The Grand Prairie shelter will work with the jail using dogs pulled from the euthanization line. The program aims to teach inmates empathy while getting dogs ready for adoptive families. Only inmates with no history of violence will be eligible. An El Centro instructor will teach the inmates how to train and they will each get a certificate at the end of the 5-week course. The program will start in October.
