Australian Shepherd Photo of the Week

Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

Corinne Tate

This is Starla. What was so funny about this picture, besides the obvious, is that she decided to sit next to the statue on her own. I just happened to have my camera phone with me. What a great shot! Enjoy.

10 Principles of Aussie Training Cont'd

2. Start as early as possible.

The earlier you begin training after the age of 8 weeks, the better. Many pups will forget their early training, but this still provides important stimulation for their growing brains. It's much better to start early than to wake up one day and find your cute pup has turned into a one-year-old dog with every problem behaviour under the sun.

3. Your dog must earn all rewards through good behavior.

Don't spoil your dog. Don't dish out free treats. You need to run your training program like a bootcamp – discipline is a necessary part of the process. Any treats you give your dog should be given as a reward for good behaviour. Want to give your dog a piece of cheese? Tell her to "Sit" before you give it to her. Too many free treats will let the dog start to think she can have whatever she wants. Never reward your dog "just for being cute." By asking for obedience every time a treat is given, you will associate your commands with positive things in your dog's mind and establish yourself as the pack leader.

Dog Quote of the Week

When dogs leap onto your bed, it's because they adore being with you. When cats leap onto your bed, it's because they adore your bed.
