The Reasons Dogs Investigate Our Private Parts & Why You’ll Want to Train Your Cat

Do you get embarrassed when you meet a new dog and the first thing they want to do is bury their nose in your crotch? Why do they have to do that? In this episode, Iâll tell you what the dog is doing - and itâs no different than what they do with other dogs â theyâre simply finding out information about you - Âbut not in the way you probably think. Whoever hears about cat trainers? â And the common belief is that cats canât be trained. But itâs not true. They can - and the benefits for an ownerâs sanity and the catâs welfare are plenty. Feline behavior specialist, ÂSarah Ellis, from International Cat Care (https://icatcare.org/), and co-author of the book, The Trainable Cat: A Practical Guide to Making Life Happier for You and Your Cat (https://www.amazon.com/Trainable-Cat-Practical-Making-Happier/dp/046509371X/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+trainable+cat&qid=1559595395&s=gateway&sr=8-1), talks about why and how to train cats. Find out what to do so that your cat likes its carrier and how to make going to the vet easier. When youâve had too much to drink and wake up with a hangover, someone may suggest the âhair of the dogâ â meaning take another drink! How did dog hair get associated with curing a hangover? Iâll explain where this expression comes from. Please rate and review the podcast.

The Reasons Dogs Investigate Our Private Parts & Why You’ll Want to Train Your Cat

How a Cat Shows its Feeling Uncertain & Stories of Dogs that Apprehend and Detain criminals

 Dogs lick their lips as a sign they are feeling uncomfortable, but what does it mean when a cat flicks its tongue out when there is no food around? Iâll explain what this gesture can indicate about a catâs mood. Then, in part two of my conversation with, Steve Pearson, a former police officer, SWAT commander and owner and trainer at Performance Kennels Inc. (http://www.performancekennels.com/) he tells stories about the police K-9 dogs that chase down, apprehend and detain criminals. Hear trade talk about how they learn their special skills and what it is like to work with these special dogs. What is the secret to dogs being able to sniff out explosives and narcotics even when smugglers commonly hide them in stronger smelling things to mask their odor? The answer has to do with another remarkable difference between canine and human noses. Iâll explain using the example of a pot of stew cooking on the stove.  Resources for this Episode. Does your cat ever groom himself so much and so hard, it is causing bald spots? Find out possible causes and what to do - on the blog, for this weekâs episode, at www.raisingyourpaws.com (http://www.raisingyourpaws.com/).

Training and Working with K-9 Police dogs & Recognizing and Quieting Frustration Barking

When you take your dogâs photograph or bend over to pet him you might notice that your dog turns its head away from you. Your dog also does this at times when other dogs approach. ÂThis is not a random meaningless motion, itâs a signal. Iâll explain what your dog is saying through this gesture. K-9 Police dogs and their handlers, assist law enforcement by searching for drugs and explosives, locating missing people, finding crime scene evidence, and apprehending people targeted by the police. ÂÂWhat does it takes for a dog to become police dog and what is it like to work with a K-9? My guest today, is Steve Pearson, a former police officer and SWAT commander and owner and trainer at Performance Kennels Inc. (http://www.performancekennels.com/) a company that selects, and trains patrol, narcotic and explosive detector dogs for law enforcement. He tells on-the-job stories, and describes why German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois make such good detection dogs. Then, how do you identify if your dogâs barking is about boredom or frustration? What can you do to address the problem and stop the barking? Iâll explain this and tell you the story of how my family inadvertently caused my beagle to bark continually. Please check out the blog that accompanies this podcast, at www.raisingyourpaws.com (http://www.raisingyourpaws.com/). There you will find articles that expand on the shows, photos and videoâs all about raising your four-legged family members.
