Hello,

Nyssa is a English cream Golden.  She helps out her mother during dog training in aggression cases as well as a demo dog.  She also helps with educational sessions with young children.  Before her emergency she was learning how to work along side her mother during a massage session to help out clients who are in physical and mental pain.  Any amount would help out and even sharing would help as well.

Yes, I know it has been a while-updates

I am sorry for those who have been stopping in and not seeing a new  update.  During the winter, the pups and I kind of go into deep freeze.   My once hyper pups  slow down and hate going outside.  Aya will even roll on her back and cry or hold her paws up within five minutes of being outside for a walk.  I will have to find a new place to start my videos.  After this winter our fence was attack by the evil Ice doers taking down large parts of my fence.  So hopefully we will get that fixed or I will find a safe place to work videos.

On other news Concord New Hampshire dog owners, or towns nearby.  E-mail the head of the local dog park/ facebook them and let them know you would like group classes!! I am trying to work with the local dog park, and give 50% of my profits back to the park itself for repairs.  The more people who ask for it the faster it can come.  This is a great way to support your dog park and have affordable classes.  Classes will be once a week, unless we have large group then we will have to look into setting up a second day.  It will take place in the small dog park area and each class will be an hour long.  Feel free to check out and leave messages on their face book at:http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/group.php?gid=292039794761  If this link does not work look up Friends of the concord dog park!

Shortly I will be adding another toy review as well as talking about natural ways to keep the ticks and fleas away; I will also be adding some more blogs on training within the week as well as some hot topics for dog owners.  Hopefully the interview of “Tommy” will be added soon as I feel it is a story that should be told and hopefully open and change minds of some owners who is using outdated treatment towards dogs.

Breed of the Month: Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever

 

Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever 

History:
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever was developed in Yarmouth County, at the Southern tip of Nova Scotia during the early nineteenth century. It was crossed between: red European decoy dog (Or so to believe), spaniel, setter, or retriever as well as the farm Collies. The first Toller came into the USA during the 1960s.

  

  

Temperament:
These dogs have a lot of energy being alert but, not hyperactive and can adjust too many circumstances. They are good with children, other dogs and pets. They are willing to please and wanting to learn. But bore easily and then can be a bit stubborn. 


Health:
Major concerns: none
Minor: CHD,PRA
Life Span: 11-13 years
Males: 45-52Lb Females: 35-42Lb
Height: Males: 18-21” Females: 17-20”

  

  

  

Training Tip: Start as soon as  you get your puppy.  This means as soon as you pick him or her up from the breeder start leash training as you are walking to the car with the puppy.  With treats in hands and being positive with getting the puppy to come to you, he or she will have a better start and understanding about the leash and what needs to be done.  

Different dogs, have different drives, one Nova Scotia may be more food driven, while another puppy maybe more into toys.  Bring both toys and treats and see what the puppy reacts to the most.  You will now know what the puppy will want to work for to please you.  

Gear tips:  While collars are pretty and a nice place to hang your doggie tags on, collars can lead to damage within the thort of a growing and older dogs.  I would highly recommend using an easy harness the body  version.  By using this kind of harness you know there will be no trauma to the thort while there is tugging or pulling.  The harness itself allows the body weight of the dog to be more even out around the whole body.  By also using this it allows you to also train your puppy and older dog that walking next to you will get them further down the road.  So keep the collars for the tags, and use the harness for walks, it will give you more control in a more humane way.
