Lately my dog will act confused and hide under the bed after being outside He has his own bed that he normally sleeps in Do you think he might have eaten a frog?

It's hard to judge why your dog is confused. He may have eaten something weird, but you wouldn't know from that one symptom. If he has diarrhea (if his poop isn't solid), then it might mean he's eaten something bad but it usually doesn't result in confusion, so I doubt he ate a frog. If his sleeping, eating, and living habits change, then you should seriously consider the problem...

Your dog may be confused from a fear of something, which I think is most likely. I suggest you take a few hours to spend some time quietly with your dog in the backyard, with little interaction. Soon your dog will wander off on his own, and then you might find out the problem! :)

Another possibility is that your dog might be sick. If you have evidence leading to your dog eating a frog or something else, then maybe he caught a virus from that.

I'm pretty sure that your dog isn't seriously in danger, but remember that you should always have your vet's phone number on hand!

Why do American dog trainers hate Cesar Millan?

It's not accurate to say they "hate" him, but some do not agree with his methods. Some trainers believe Cesar Milan is too harsh with the dogs; and others believe he makes it seem like if you follow his method, your dog will be perfect-- there is no magical method for training a dog, and while some of Cesar's techniques may be useful, his shows (like all TV shows) are heavily edited, so you only see his successes, and not the cases where he failed or where it took a long time to win the dog over.

When does a puppy wear a collar?

Puppies can start wearing a collar as early as 3 or 4 months, for early leash training or just to get it used to wearing one. Since puppies that young cannot move very quickly, a collar is not always necessary, as most of your interactions will be carrying the puppy to and from a potty spot, playing, etc.

Why do dogs run after speeding cars?

It's instinctive. Something is running from them, and they are hunting it. And the more they run after it, the more it runs away. You can train a dog not to do it though. Look under "dog training" in a search engine for a good start.

It's obviously dangerous for a dog to do it. So training is important. Or make sure he's fenced in.

Are Alaskan Klee Kai Dogs easy to train?

That depends on your definition of "easy." They are incredibly smart, but stubborn, dogs. If you have the will and the patience, they are very easy to train as they learn very quickly. The problem lies with getting them to concentrate on you! With my pup I found using treats and keeping training sessions very short at first, 3-5 mins or so, worked very well. Be patient, positive and consistent. Remember to always end with a success, then they will be eager to please :) good luck! They are amazing dogs :)

How do you stop a dog attacking a rabbit?

Keep him on a leash when you go for walks. If you have trouble controlling him, use a choker chain. They may seem rough, but seeing that you are not actively choking the dog, it is rather up to him. If he pulls hard, it tightens. When he realizes he is uncomfortable, he backs up so it loosens. He will come to learn that walking with you is comfortable, and snatching you around is not. Not only that, but you need to have control of your animal at all times, especially if he is showing aggression. Chances are, he needs other training as well. Your dog is probably showing other signs of behavior issues that you may or may not of have picked up on. You should pick up a couple of books on training, and read up. One form of training links into others ways that you would never expect.

If the rabbit is a pet, make sure you keep it safe while the dog is training. They can be easily hurt, and you are responsible for what your dog does as well as the safety of those exposed to it.

What do you do when your neighbors have a barking dog that they cannot control?

When your neighbors have a barking dog that they can't control, you may contact local authorities such as the police or the local Animal Control. Depending on your location, there are laws which make it so people may not legally have loud barking dogs after a certain time of day. Before you contact local authorities, try to encourage your neighbors to get their dog not to bark. If the noise continues, the law may either take the dogs away, or fine the dog owners until they find an answer to the problem. If your locality permits it, you could sign a neighborhood petition to not allow their dog to be outside during certain parts of the night.

Is it good to chew skoal or not?

Actually chewing it? i doubt it would be any worse than dipping it. If you're talking about rubbing (chewing is a whole different type of tobacco, it comes in pouches) then no it's not good for you. There's a chance it can cause gum cancer, tooth decay, and gum loss.

Are westies hard to train?

I attended a weekly dog training session for my dog for 10 weeks. I found it quite easy to train him. He was able to learn most of the commands (eg. sit, heel, down, stay) within 3 days.

It helps if your westie is food-motivated. I have seen dogs (especially maltese) who don't like to eat treats, and thus are hard to train.

It also depends on how dedicated you are in training it. If you only work with it once a week, it's going to take ages to learn. You have to work with it for 30 min to 1 hour a day, not more than 1 hour, not less than 30 min. We don't want it to work too hard and waste all its energy on training, but we don't want it to be under-trained as well.

Another factor is the dog itself. There's a hierarchy in a pack of dogs when they are born. I heard that when dogs are born, they like to sleep on top of one another. So usually the "top dog" will tend to be more stubborn and unwilling to learn. The "top dog" will hence be hard to train, and also sometimes hard to rear as a pet. Fortunately for me, my westie is probably at the bottom, since he's pretty good-natured. It depends on your luck, because you can't really see the hierarchy in the dog's enclosure in the pet shop.

Sorry for a lot of redundant information.

I heard from my trainer that some of the westies he has helped to train are quite difficult to handle, due to their stubborn personality. Females will be better to handle, but there is not much difference between the 2 genders in terms of difficulty.

Like I said, it depends on your luck on the personality of your dog.

What Los Angeles dog rehabilitation center counsels people to use calm-assertive leadership to help correct and control unwanted canine behavior?

Los Angeles dog rehabilitation center (this is the one run by Cesar Millan who is on a TV show).

There are many other excellent rehab places in LA and surrounding areas and it is wise to consult the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviour (AVSAB) before sending your dog anywhere. They recommend only kind methods for training and rehabilitation

Many dog professionals used to use the 'dominance' methods 20 years ago but have now discarded them in favor of more humane ways.

Can dogs swim without being trained?

Not all. It's not hard to get a dog to swim, but it is an action they need to see someone else doing. Some dogs seemingly instinctively know how to paddle their legs, but some dogs need to learn by watching their parents and other dogs swim.

The most training most people need is just getting the dog used to the water, which if you bathe the dog once a month or so, should be quite easy.

How big is the dog training industry?

The dog training industry is growing, as is the entire pet industry. In 2012, the US pet industry was a $53.33 billion industry, up from $50.96 billion in 2011 according to the American Pet Products Association. The projection for 2013 calls for more than a $2 billion increase in pet expenditures.

Of the 2012 expenditures, $4.54 billion was spent on Pet Services which includes dog training (as well as grooming, boarding, and other services).

The dog training industry includes many kinds of establishments, from franchises to individuals. Private and group lessons are options at some dog training businesses, both stand-alone training centers and ones located in large pet supply stores.

As more people travel with their dogs, dog training has become more important than ever, and dog owners are turning to training classes, not just with a new puppy, but to brush up on training skills with their adult dogs.

How can you teach your adult lab to swim?

Make water fun! Is he toy motivated? If so, get him very interested in the toy and then toss it into water that only goes up to his lower legs if that. Most dogs will do into that. Another way is for you to wade out into water maybe up to you knees and then call to your dog. If he comes to you, give him a cookie and praise. Also, every time he touches water (with the exception of drinking it) praise, play, or give a cookie. Now, that'll have most dogs okay with water they can stand in after a while. If you want him to swim as in not touching any ground, that's a little harder. What I would do may seem cruel but honestly it's not. Get the dog on a leash, and simply go into a pool holding the end of it. Most dogs that don't like water will not follow, or won't go past the steps. Put pressure on the leash. If he doesn't swim off the steps, go back, feed a cookie and then swim out again. Say "George, come!" Or whatever the dog's name is. Then, you need to pull the dog *gently* into the water if he still doesn't come. Once he is in, give him a cookie and praise. Wait until he stops thrashing and then let him climb out. Do the entire process again. It's a lot of work, but this will work over time with almost any dog.
