www.pamsdogacademy.com This is a 7 part series on how I introduced our Labor Day House Guest Blue (a 11 week old Border Collie) to my current family dog’s (Isabelle, Bandit & Twix). The introductions took a few hours, but it was worth it as we had an amazing weekend together. There are many ways to train dogs to get along, but I happen to think that my way is the best. I reward calm behavior, introduce slowly, positively interrupt unwanted behaviors, and reward all behaviors that I like and want the dogs to repeat. It really is simple and does not take much time at all. It is sort of like teaching. If you start the year off right and train the students to do the procedures and teach them how things are done, then the entire school year runs smooth. Same with the dogs, if I teach them how I want them to behave by reinforcing good behaviors that I like, the inter-relationship between all the dogs is a positive one and everything runs smooth. 🙂 Being a full time teacher, I like to relate a lot of what I do with dogs to humans and visa versa. I am not saying that dogs are like humans, but when training and getting behaviors to be repeated, dogs and humans are very similar. 🙂 Have a great week! Pam, Isabelle, Bandit, Twix & Blue
