Update on The Queen.

She had some thinly sliced beef tonight.

Happy at the moment. Sassing Kubo still, so while we sass, we are groovy ❤️

The Queen isn't doing so well.

15 years old and renal failure, she's starting to get tired.

At the moment she's ok. Still keeping the young whipper snapper in check, but needs a bit of a rest afterwards.

She's wanting to be around me more now, and Kubo is being very attentive to her.

Time now is more precious than ever. I might be a bit quiet for now to truly be with her.

Hug your dogs guys - I'm hugging mine 💖

If you have your dog off lead, you have a responsibility to ensure your dog is not a nuisance.

You have a responsibility to ensure they recall 100%.

You have a responsibility to ensure they are polite with that freedom.

You have a responsibility to ensure they don't keep charging up to and annoying other people and dogs.

There is no need for your dog to carry on like a complete knucklehead.

The more they practice being a butthead, the worse their behaviour will become.

If you can't recall your dog, if you can't control your dog - they shouldn't be off lead.

Train your dog.

The Queen had a visit with Dr John @belroseveterinaryhospital today.

Licking the nether regions... She is stressed, sad, not eating... I panic a bit...

Anal glands expressed - boom! She came home and stuffed herself with warm rotisserie chicken and is prancing about like a hooligan 😃

Thank you Dr John and team xo ❤️

We are happy 😍❤️🥰

Went for a nice, long walk today with my friend Lorraine and her dog Remy.

For a long walk, is necessary to stop for a coffee to refuel, which means one of us has to go in and order.

Today Lorraine went in and I hung out with the boys.

Remy was on tie up a couple of meters away from Kubo.

Both are big dogs, so we were mindful of keeping a clear walkway for people coming and going.

You can see both boys are calm and very relaxed.

This is why we teach our dogs about the tie up instruction and place training.

If they have the ability to chill while out, it's easy and very pleasant to take them anywhere.

Train your dog.

To get your puppy to become the dog you envision - you need to take them on that journey.

Puppy phase, asshole adolescent phase, then maturity.

You will have moments where you reach for that bottle of wine because junior has chewed up your favourite slippers, or re-landscaped your garden bed, or dug a hole so big you could put a pool in...

Been there. Not the chewing bit, but landscaping... Yep... 🙄

Here's the thing.

Take the time to show them that journey - step by step.

Just going to a four week puppy class doesn't mean you've got a degree in training 😉

Need help?

I decided to post this - with the error in instruction at the end - for a reason.

You can hear a dog barking in the background as Kubo approaches me, you can see him glance towards the dog - he's a little unsettled.

When I ask for the 'sit' and Kubo drops... The dog is running towards him.

It is at that point I toss the ball to him, as opposed to correcting the position.

I did not want Kubo to feel uncomfortable with the approaching dog in position... I did not want the approaching dog to get to Kubo in position, so I made the call to still reward a lovely recall.

The next time I did it - Kubo executed a perfect recall with even more distraction.

It is training like this, that is real life. If your foundation is not solid, you can't expect solid execution.

Train your dog.

The Queen ate a humongous dinner tonight.

She's decided she wants to eat Kubo's raw kangaroo food now 🙄 so what The Queen wants, The Queen gets.

After eating, she's starts chasing him up the hallway.

This is the 15 year old dog that scared the crap out of me last Friday by having a stroke right in front of me 😳

Stop / drop.

Something we are having fun building on.

Distance work.

Notice I'm in my back yard. Quiet with no distractions.

When Kubo is more solid in the exercise, we will begin practice in other areas.

Training doesn't have to be boring.

Have fun!

Kubo in drop/stay. He's solid.

In the first photo you can see him looking at something off to my side - it was a bike rider and border collie going up the street.

Second photo - re-engaged. It was as at this point when his focus came back to me, he was freed from the exercise.

Training doesn't have to be tediously long and boring..

I was working with Kubo for about 10 minutes on lead, we then had about 5 minutes tug, then drop/stay to bring in calm.

I had a scare today.

The Queen had a little stroke. Right in front of me.

Tossed everything and raced her up to @belroseveterinaryhospital

These guys know what this glorious little dog means to me.

I walk into the consultation room... Normally Dr John is up for nerdy jokes and stuff. He was quiet today, which I found unnerving, but in a weird way comforting.

It was recommended she stay for observation.

After a few hours, I call, we chat and she's been groovy. I go and pick her up.

Nurse Hayley has been looking after her. Nurse Kate brings her out, cuddling her so gently 😍

We come home and she gets straight into getting us back in line 🙄

I serve up dinner... She eats a humongous portion, then goes and bullies the darling husband into giving her a second meal. She's stuffed.

This photo is her after first and second dinner... 😍

There are no words really. I left that vet surgery - ugly crying - but knowing she was where she needed to be.

I felt comfortable and confident. What ever the out come.

That is an extraordinary vet. To make you feel comfortable when you are in the middle of a magnificent storm. This sort of thing is NEVER easy for them.

They know and care for our beloved pets as much as we do.

I know I'm on borrowed time with my 15 year old Queen. But today, I got another chance to be bossied around by her.

I wouldn't have it any other way ❣️

This post is to truly appreciate my vet team. They love and appreciate my dogs as much as I do.

Thank you ❤️

Training. Don't be boring! Don't be lazy...

Today Kubo and I met up with our friends - Lorraine and Remy - for some fun.

We walked from their place, around the back streets, then up to the outside of the local dog park.

In the shade, we put Kubo and Remy on their long leads and played with our dogs.

The boys were very aware of each other, sometimes stopping and watching what each other were doing, then coming right back to us ❤️

It's not all about the dog park. It's not all about the mad, crazy play.

It is all about hanging out together. It is all about having fun together.

The local off lead dog park was just like a mosh pit at a Metallica concert today.

Kubo and I walked the 2k's up there from home, grabbed a coffee from the little food truck, found a seat, shared a popcorn chicken and watched the shenanigans unfold.

Crazy dogs jacking every other dog up and not giving a complete toss about their owners.

The owners chasing, flailing their arms and leads about in a vain effort to get their dog back... their dog getting more jacked up because of their owners abysmal efforts...

Here's the thing.

MOST people were up there having a good old chat and completely ignoring their dogs... Until their dog started jacking others up of course, then they had to try and dive in to get their dog.

AND - if their dog wasn't being the socially inept canine, they'd be clustered around the entry/exits of the park having a chat and not social distancing at all 😳

Kubo and I snuck in at an entry that is at the other end and played ball for a bit...

We met a couple of lovely dogs - their owners were attempting to stay away from the frey too.

I kept it short and sweet - we left before the madness got too much and walked home together ❤️

DON'T be that person we all roll eyes at. Some might be polite, but I'm not - I'm eye rolling.

DON'T be that person who's dog couldn't give a toss about you. That is just sad.

BE that person who has taught their dog to WANT to be with them.

You got your dog - don't be lazy - TRAIN your dog!

Off lead dog parks... Here's the thing...

The Darling Husband and I took Kubo up to the local one late the other night. We go late because it's quiet... Mostly 🙄

We are starting to see the people who have the same idea we do - we don't want to talk to anyone, we want to hang out with our dogs.

Well. This night - a 4 month old pup was there. Owner had a beer - nice for him. Puppy however, found Kubo.

Wouldn't leave him alone. His behaviour began to escalate - my boy is still being super patient.

The Darling Husband and I begin to interfere here as puppy is becoming rude. Kubo wants nothing to do with him.

We take hold of pup's harness and wait for the owner to come get his pup. 3.2 seconds later - pup is back in full force.

Slamming shoulder ins to Kubo, biting his back legs - I start to turn into a crazed person about to spew forth some words...

Kubo - bless his cotton socks corrects the pup. Not once, but twice. We request owner to come grab pup because third one may not be so polite.

Next thing we hear - pup has decided to go 'play' with the cattle dog on the other side of the park

Well... That dog was not gentle with his corrections. Thing is - pup STILL took no notice.

This pup has now learned it doesn't have to listen to social cues. It has learned to continue being that crazed crackhead.

It has also learned to completely ignore it's owner. It has learned that it's owner is THE most boring thing in the park.

It will either become the dog park bully, or something dreadful is going to happen to it from a dog that won't have control.

If you use an off lead dog park as part of your dog's exercise and training - for the love of all dogs there - have CONTROL of your dog!

If your dog doesn't give a flying toss about you - how do you expect it to want to be with and listen to you?

If your dog doesn't listen 110% to you when off lead - they shouldn't be off lead. Simple.

Lay the foundation down in your dog's training. Get out and BE with your dog. Get out and PLAY with your dog. Get out and teach your dog how to find you.

My friend Andrew Clark is running an amazing program.

If your dog has a Menacing Dog order or Dangerous Dog order on them, Andrew is your man.

Even if your dog has no issues, it is still a good idea to know about this.

Navigating through the legalities in council can be incredibly confusing and frustrating.

He works with councils and knows the ins and outs of what should and should not be done.

This is a very worthwhile program to sign up for!

Get on it people.** Dangerous & Menacing Dog / Early Intervention Behaviour Modification Program **

Commencing September at St Ives (NSW), Total Dog will be conducting a training program aimed at assisting people seeking revocation of Dangerous or Menacing Dog Orders or an early intervention for dogs with aggression issues.

Based on the successful program Total Dog piloted for Ku-ring-gai Council in 2015, and run numerous times since, the program will consist of five one hour sessions over a four month period. This is to allow time for real change to be observed in the dogs’ behaviour over an extended period. Additional sessions may be booked during this period if required. On completion a training report and an assessment of temperament will be provided for each dog.

The objectives of the program are:
• Know the correct application process,
• Know your requirements and the responsibilities of Council,
• Develop a basic understanding of what determines canine behaviour,
• Develop a basic understanding of the principles of dog training,
• Develop a basic understanding of desensitisation and counter-conditioning,
• Develop an understanding of environmental management,
• Distinguish between desired and non-desired interactions,
• Develop a better understanding of handling hyper-aroused, anxious or aggressive dogs,
• Manage nuisance behaviours such as excessive barking and boisterous behaviour by way of exercise, environmental enrichment, environmental management, structure, training and healthcare,
• Manage behaviour problems such as aggression and anxiety by way of environmental management, structure, training, desensitisation, counter-conditioning, environmental conditioning, socialisation and healthcare.
• Know your responsibilities under law.

The dates and times will be confirmed upon application.

If you are interested in this program, please contact us at andrew@totaldog.biz or 0403 779 336

Comes in VERY handy when your plumber from @hello_plumbing arrives at the crack of dawn to do a job for you 😉

Here is Kubo remaining on his bed while the plumber comes and goes through the front door.

I'm pretty busy, so when I get time to spend with my dogs, I really enjoy it.

I'm 100% with them when out.

Kubo and I were up at St Ives showground this afternoon, between sessions.

We played ball, did some fun obedience, did some stay/distance work and just hung out.

There were beautifully behaved dogs up there today too, which makes it even nicer.

The Queen was in attendance... Sort of... She loves to ride in her lushly appointed crate, but refuses to participate in what the plebs are doing.

She's above that now - she's 15 - she can do what ever she wants 😍

I did get her out at the end of Kubo's run, just to see if she wanted a sniff around... Well... No... What was I thinking 🙄

Kubo was in the boot while I had Daisy out. His job - remain there until told otherwise. You can't judge the distance from the photo, but I am about 20 meters away from my car.
