How to keep your dog busy pt.1

Dear dog friends,

All dogs no matter what age, love to chew! A life hack to keeping my dogs busy is this simple recipe.
I wanted to share it with you guys in hopes of giving you a cheap alternative to keep your dogs busy and out of trouble.

Recipe: Whats inside
1-2 cups of your dogs regular dry food
1 can of dog food (I tend to stick to the same brand of food you use as the dry)
Mix together until you have the consistency of cookie dough
You can add a little water if its too thick.
Then stuff into your kong/bone/etc.
Place in a bag in the freezer for 2-4 hours
Give your dog to enjoy! (this makes about 10 bones/Kongs for me – I meal prep these for my dogs for about 2 weeks) * I have 3 dogs lol

Use less if you are only making a few at a time!

What you can use:
I use raw femur bones / marrow bones (found at butcher shops, pet stores and some local grocery stores) once your dog cleans them out (which can take them a long time) You can use the cleaned, finished bones for this

If you aren’t a fan of raw you can use artificial bones (like nylabone) as a substitute (they make ones where you can stuff things inside)
You can use pig hooves (they sell them at pet stores) but they don’t smell good when your dog chews them & they can splinter off (but are really cheap and work well for dogs who are not strong chewers.)
*The safest option is the Kong!

Tips and other ideas:
You can mix coconut oil, canned unsweetened pumpkin, peas, carrots or any other healthy snack mixed in to make it more interesting.
***DO NOT BUY the smoked bones. I’am not a fan of these bones that they sell at pet stores, they splinter off into pieces and are greasy/ messy.
They do sell (not raw) marrow bones with no fillings inside that can work decent as well. (not as good as raw because of the chemicals used to clean/package them)
I do NOT like rawhides.
I do like bully sticks, but they are expensive!

*please be careful and monitor anything you give your dog, make sure your dog knows a solid drop it command before you give them anything high value. (do not give to a dog who resource guards – please find a dog trainer near you first!)

*make sure the bone is not too small where they can get their mouth stuck or swallow it!

*WARNING* anything you give your dog has the potential to break into smaller pieces!!!

If your dog has food sensitivities:
An alternate solution for a dog who can’t handle change in diet is to take their actual dog food, add some hot water to it.
Leave it out for about an hour or until it turns into a mushy paste, then just use that as the filling. Freeze and enjoy!

*If your dog has never had a raw bone it may cause diarrhea (the first few bones my dogs had- had this problem, but now they can handle them.

*If you have an overweight dog, use more canned dog food vs dry kibble because the can food is usually less calories. Be aware if you give them one everyday to calculate how many calories your dog is taking in.

I hope this helps keep your dog happy if you leave the house, travel in the car. To keeping your new pup happy in the crate or just to settle down at the end of the day.

Remember toys/ bones are not a replacement for training and proper exercise! Train them don’t blame them!

Love, TrainDogsForLife (:

Lolabelle was a rat terrier diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. She began working with Elisabeth at DogRelations™ she learned how to play the keyboards as part of her rehabilitation/occupational therapy because her illness prevented her from getting her outdoor exercise.

This is a perfect example of how a heavily reinforced activity stimulates endorphins and how self motivated the dog becomes to perform this activity.Additionally it encourages the use of the front legs and strengthens/stabilizes the shoulders area.

The Complete Guide To Curing Separation Anxiety In Dogs

Separation anxiety is a very common behavior problem that many dogs suffer from.

Signs that your dog is suffering from separation anxiety can come in many forms.

At the core a dog that has separation anxiety has a fear of you leaving and a fear of being apart from you.

When you are working with a dog that has separation anxiety, the main concept we want to teach the dog is that “humans leaving me alone is a good thing”.

Here are some of the ways that you can work with your dog to help them over come their separation anxiety.

The time that separation anxiety in dogs occurs is when we leave and often times when we are getting ready to leave.

One of the first thats that you must do is pay attention to your behavior when you come home and when you leave.

It is very important that when it is time for you to leave your dog alone, you don’t turn leaving into this huge spectacle with long good byes and baby talk.

When you are going to leave, don’t even say anything to your dog, just walk out the door.

Going over and petting your dog, saying good bye, and giving him lots of attention right before you leave just gets him worked up and triggers the separation anxiety to begin.

When you first come home, your dog will most likely be very excited to see you.

Instead of giving him attention right away, ignore him for a minute or two until he has calmed down, THEN give him attention, pet him, anything you would like.

By staying calm when we leave and come home, you dog will start to learn that you coming home and leaving is just a normal thing that happens and it’s nothing to get worked up about.

A lot of the time they start getting anxious just watching what we are doing because they have learned that certain behaviors we do means we are going to leave soon.

If we can try to show our dog that we aren’t always going to leave just because you see us doing something, it can really help to reduce the separation anxiety from starting.

Puzzle Toys And Bones Keep A Dog With Separation Anxiety Busy!

When we leave our dogs alone we want to help them to focus on something other than the fact that they are alone.

This is where puzzle toys and bones come in very handy.

Puzzle toys are any type of dog toy that you can stuff food into and the dog then has to work on getting the food out.

The food that you stuff in the puzzle toys should be something that is VERY high value – regular dog treats are not good enough.

Chicken, steak, cheese, hotdogs, or some other kind of high quality people food is what we should be putting inside of the puzzle toys, and this is the ONLY time that our dog gets these high quality treats.

When your dog starts to see that the only time he gets these high value treats is when you leave, he will actually start looking forward to you leaving because he know he will get something great!

Bones are another good thing to keep your dog busy, I particularly like marrow bones that I get from the butcher at my local supermarket.

If you are going to give your dog bones there are two major rules you need to follow.

Rule #1: The size of the bone needs to be large to make sure their is no risk for choking. Buy a size bigger than you think you need to be safe.

Rule #2: Bones MUST BE RAW! I can not stress this enough. Cooked bones are very dangerous because they can splinter and under no circumstances should you ever give your dog a cooked bone. If you want to give your dog a bone it HAS to be raw.

The scent of lavender is known to have a very calming and almost sedating affect as it acts on the central nervous system of our dogs.

One idea to help a dog with separation anxiety is to add the scent of lavender to the area where your dog will be.

While lavender plants are NOT toxic to dogs, it is best that you put it in a place that they won’t be able to eat it as it may give them an upset stomach.

Another thing to try is burning lavender incense before you go out, or try one of those wall plugins that is lavender scented.

Recent studies have shown that classical music can lead to more relaxed and restful behavior in dogs.

Leaving some classical music on for your dog to listen to while your gone can help them to relax and it also provides mental stimulation for them.

I mention this one last because this really should be your last resort.

If you have tried everything above but have not seen improvement in your dog, then it is time to talk to your veterinarian about perhaps prescribing an anti anxiety medication to help your dog.

One sign that you may need to go this route is if your dog is not eating the food in the puzzle toys when you leave.

A dog that won’t accept food is under a tremendous amount of stress, and that is the number one sign we may need medication.
