Often times when we hear about a dog biting or fighting, things seem to happen “all of a sudden”. Before we know it, dogs are fighting, lunging or barking. Believe it or not, it’s likely that a dog isn’t biting or fighting “out of nowhere”, but their body language may be so subtle, that if you don’t know what to look for, you could miss valuable warnings.Read More

Interpreting Your Rottweiler's Vocal Tendencies
In training and observing Rottweilers, a common problem I have noticed is with the dog who "grumbles". I have had people call me in hysterics because their precious little five month old Rottweiler is growling at them. They immediately assume he's gone over the edge and is dangling on the precipice of absolute viciousness. Usually I am able to tell them he is only "grumbling".

Be a Responsible Dog Owner
Among companion animals, dogs are unmatched in their devotion, loyalty and friendship to humankind. Anyone who has ever loved a dog can attest to its hundred-fold return. The excitement your dog shows when you come home, the wagging tail at the sound of the leash being taken from its hook, the delight in the tossing of a tennis ball, and the head nestled in your lap-those are only some of the rewards of being a dog owner.Read More
How Do You Tell The Difference?
If You’re In The Market For A Puppy: You’ve probably searched online for breeders and been dazzled by gorgeous, breeder websites and the claims they make about their puppies.Read More
"He's such an ingrate” "He's so spiteful. He only does it when I leave him alone." He's got a great life. Is this the thanks I get?!"
"He's so mad at me for leaving him alone all day. We have such great weekends. He's perfect. Then, on Monday. . . but I have to go to work."
Sound familiar? Ever thought it or said it? And it's not even true. Dogs can't be ingrates; they don't share our value system.

The family dog is not capable of premeditated crimes against the family.
