Does Your Dog Wear the Pants? Happy Paws K-9 Academy Offers New Approach to Dog Training

The answer to all your canine problems!

Maplecrest, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

Happy Paws K-9 Academy, known for its unique communication-oriented approach to dog training, ( has opened a new location in the Catskills in Maplecrest, New York (the Hunter/Windham ski area).

Their philosophy is that training a dog is not just about the dog. Rather, in their approach to good canine behavior, they not only teach the dog what is acceptable and not acceptable behavior, but they also teach the humans how their dog perceives what they are saying or doing. They will show you how to modify your behavior to get the results you desire.

According to Head Trainer Lorraine Siena Reid ( ), there are many things that affect your dog’s perception such as your body posture, timing, the tone of your voice, and your attitude – just to name a few. For that reason, Siena Reid uses lots of affection and praise in her training techniques.

But unlike most dog training firms, Happy Paws K-9 Academy does not believe one method of training fits all. Rather, they use a combination of methods that best fit the needs of your dog.

Does your dog just need some house manners or has that lovable four-legged pooch traded his halo for horns? Has that cuddly lovable animal you first brought home turned into Cujo overnight? Have you been asked to leave other obedience classes? Have other trainers told you your dog is hopeless and should be put down? Happy Paws K-9 Academy has had successful results with a vast array of dog problems.

Whether you need simple house manners, confidence building to overcome fear, or have a major aggression issue, they are there to help you. The firm also specializes in off-leash control, which Siena Reid notes “comes in very handy while hiking or biking in the woods.”

“The more issues we can help you combat, the better it looks for us,” adds Siena Reid.

Happy Paws K-9 Academy offers a free private in-home consultation to discuss the needs of your dog – and they do not believe in high-pressure sales tactics. “The only thing you’ve got to lose is your dog’s bad behavior,” says Siena Reid.

Lorraine Siena Reid is also available to speak with the media about a variety of dog training methodologies and behavior questions.

Aïkiou Dog Bowl Takes a New Approach in Solving Weight and Behavior Problems Associated with Domestic Pets

Aikiou Dog bowl

(PRWEB) March 8, 2011

Distributions Aikiou Inc. of Mascouche, Canada is taking a new approach to pet obesity and behavior related problems by creating the future in pet food activity centers. These dog bowls are designed for fun and as a healthy alternative to their regular dog bowl.

“As we all know, dogs and cats have to find their food in nature, this activity is part of their natural behavior. With domestication, we improved the lives of those pets with our standards but forgot about their natural needs, food search being one of them.“ says creator Kathleen Desrosiers.

The goal of the company is to create a full line of products designed to help pets in houses control their behavior and weight. Using these products should contribute to lower the costs associated with having a pet. It is said that overweight dogs and cats are more at risk of developing problems such as diabetes, bone problems, heart disease, liver and digestive disorders.

The overweight animals will find in The Aïkiou a solution to their problem. By having to spend more time finding their food, they will learn to eat more slowly and will find satiety more quickly, what will contribute in helping them maintaining a healthy weight. This will also help reduce the costs associated with these disease in many households.

With these bowls intended for regular use that work like puzzle toys as recommended by pet behaviorists and the ASPCA. Pets will have to use their nose and brain to search for their food in order to prevent boredom and excess energy, two known reason for behavior problems in dogs. It will help them find the motivation that they would usually have in nature and help solve many anxiety problems that most of today’s dogs have to face.

About Distributions Aïkiou

Distributions Aïkiou is a Canadian company founded by Kathleen Desrosiers, co owner of the company. The goal of the company is to develop new products based on the interaction of the animals with their environment. Started in 2008, it released the first of a new generation of feeders with in mind the fact that animals need to use their mind as much as we do to have a life full of new experiences.

New dog training approach?

Question by Inga: New dog training approach?
I got this new book as a freebie when my Koehler book came. And it is very interesting. It’s called
“Taste of His Own Medicine” By Alexis Walker… an apparently new dog training star.

In it she explains the new trend in obedience training dogs. So if your dog rushes you at the door, jumping up and trying to nip you in the face, you have to beat him to it. So walk in the door get in his face and start nipping at his mouth.

For leash training, if your dog pulls, you’re supposed to continuously try to outrun him.

If he urinates on your carpet… well, you get the idea.

Has anyone heard of this new trainer or her methods? Has anyone tried them?

I don’t know if it’s for me but I’m open to anything new. It has some high praise testimonials from dog owners and an endorsement from something called the PDTC. Anyone ever heard of that?

And it has the most adorable Yorkie/Staff mix on the cover. So I might just have to give it a try.

Does this sound like something you would be willing to try on your dog? What do you think?
No jab at Koehler. Not his fault the new book was shipped in the same box. lol

Best answer:

Answer by AylaTheLearnedProtectorofAnimals
You’re kidding me right? How many more insane, lame methods are people going to come up with? Why on earth would I want to get in my dog’s face and start attempting to nip him? Why would I want to try to outrun him? That’s just ridiculous!

No, I certainly haven’t heard of this trainer or methods! Figures this trainer is now a star! It’s sad how much people lack common sense these days. It definitely shows when people will fall for a joke of a trainer like this person obviously is!

ADD: The jab at Koehler (Even if there was no jab) is fine with me! That method is cruel, dangerous, and outdated. I don’t advocate this method and I never will.
