CALM SPOT

My dog Newla has actually 3 spots that she will go to calm down. Her crate in our bedroom is the most common place.

If someone comes to the door and she is over excited we will send her either to her mat or the living room crate depending on her excitement level. Also having the mat portable so it can go from room to room or easily taken with you wherever you go.

It is important to teach your dog to be able to set down for all concerned.
The dog will be less stressed you and your quests can have a visit without being bugged 24 /7 for attention




I used a clicker to train Newla to go to her crate or her mat it was fun positive with lots of treats.
The clicks and treats were weaned and now it just mat or crate and stay = HAPPINESS

Top-Selling Dog Foods With Dangerous Ingredients

CHECK OUT THIS WEBSITE:  http://www.whole-dog-journal.com

Dear Fellow Dog Lover,
You want the best for your dog - especially when it comes to his food. You read labels and try to choose the brand and formula that will nourish your furry friend.
That's why you'll be as shocked as I was, to discover that dozens of today's top-selling brands - names you thought you could trust, like Beneful, Pedigree, Purina and more - may not contain the wholesome, healthy ingredients you want for your dog.
Take Beneful. The package makes it look like manna from heaven with a healthy pup, fresh veggies, and what look like real chunks of meat. Unfortunately, the pictures make the food seem better than it is. The reality is this stuff is AWFUL for your dog. It's full of sugar, artificial colors, and 3 unnamed animal sources. And very little vegetables.
Or look at Kibbles 'n Bits Bistro Meals Grilled Chicken Flavor. If only it contained the grilled chicken they show on the bag instead of loads of low-quality ingredients and "animal digest" - the real source of the chicken flavor.

Another terrible food is Pedigree Complete Nutrition for Adult Dogs. Made with an inferior, cheap source of protein, it's a wonder it could maintain any dog's health - much less an adult dog's!

And wet foods fare no better than dry...
The label on Alpo Prime Cuts in Gravy Homestyle with Beef makes it look like big pieces of beef covered in gravy. But if this is your dog's dinner, she's getting some of the lowest-quality sources of protein, held together by wheat gluten! Even Iams ProActive Health Chunks is full of by-products that are often linked to all sorts of health problems.
Is your dog's food full of used restaurant grease?
When you see "animal fat" on a label - you probably think chicken skins or beef trimmings. But, pet food regulations allow manufacturers to use all sorts of low-quality fats, even USED RESTAURANT GREASE, as generic fat sources. To make sure your dog gets healthier fats, look for labels that use a named species of animal as a source of fat, like chicken fat or duck fat.
What's more, you could be paying for healthy ingredients that aren't even in the bag. For example, because omega-3 fatty acids are so healthy, dog food manufacturers started adding DHA and EPA (highly beneficial fatty acid supplements) to many dry foods. However, they are notoriously fragile and short-lived. Plus, exposure to oxygen makes them turn rancid - and potentially dangerous - very quickly.

So, how do you know which foods can help boost your dog's health and even add years to his life - and which ones you never want to put in his bowl?

Start a risk-free subscription to The Whole Dog Journal, the monthly publication that's dedicated to bringing you proven, natural solutions for keeping your dog healthy and happy for life! Filled with reviews of food, dry, wet and raw, The Whole Dog Journal is unlike any other publication.
How dry dog food causes cancer!
When manufacturers add low-quality ingredients imported from places without adequate safety oversight, and low-cost ingredients that are often shipped and stored without refrigeration - it makes it easy for these ingredients to become rancid. Rancid fats destroy the nutritive value of the proteins and vitamins in food so much, your dog can suffer from deficiencies even though he is eating well. What's worse, these rancid fats can cause diarrhea, liver problems, arthritis, heart problems and even cancer! Don't risk your dog's health. Subscribe to The Whole Dog Journal now.
