Want the secrets to learning how to speak DOG right now....click this link....
Training your dog is not rocket science! Dog training does not take a lot of time, and if you train your dog yourself, it should not equal a mortgage payment. However, it does require a small amount of effort to learn the language your dog is speaking to you.....DOG LANGUAGE! Your dog, although accepted as part of your family, is actually not human. Dogs love being part of the family, enjoy learning our language, and are definitely a cherished part of each family. However, if you were traveling to Paris, you would be sure to learn a few necessary words before you embark on your trip; bathroom, water, beer, and you would learn their money system.
Compare training your dog as a trip to a new nation with their own language. You would not insist to ask for a bathroom in Paris when your time for an answer is essential. Learn the basics of speaking DOG, and your time together will be a pleasant adventure.. Of course, our dogs are capable of learning hundreds of words and phrases in English, some are even capable of reading and riding a skateboard! But rather than teaching the Parisian the English word for bathroom, learn to say their word first to avoid a rough time, then teach our language when we are patient and not in an urgency.

I designed the Golden Dog Rules when someone asked me on a plane...."If you could give me one quick tip before you go...."
There are many Golden Rules but the most important rule I pass on is;
#1 Anytime you talk, touch, or even look at your dog, you are reinforcing not only what your dog is doing, but what he is thinking.
Consider every time you pet your dog that you are paying him $20. Your petting is a paycheck to your dog. If you are pettting your dog to calm him down, you are paying towards reactive dog behavior.

I use a simple 4' slip lead that I buy online at Dog.com. There is a great variety of colors and thats really all the leash you need. It's about $8
I always suggest a kennel. I like the hefty duty YML.com crate that is a 5 gauge wire if you have a dog that tends to fuss, but our ultimate goal is for a dog to be completely calm while in any kennel, even a mesh kennel that is convenient for traveling!
Cost Co still has the best dog beds for the price. I put a water proof twin mattress cover (wal-mart $7) over the bedding, then replace the cover. (just incase someone has an accident)
I like stainless dinner bowls from the .99 cent store. I find them in the people section.
Tip: Items bought in the dog section are more expensive than the baby section.
