Essentials Part 1: Exercise

What is the one essential key to having a happy healthy dog?

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise! I can’t stress enough how essential EXERCISE is for your dog. They need at least 30 minutes of vigorous exercise a day to be content and some dogs need more.

Dogs are made to move! In the wild, dogs travel miles a day hunting for food, water, and shelter. Their exercise was to survive.

Now that dogs are domesticated, they have certain jobs pertaining to the individual breed groups. For Example, if you have a Water Dog (Newfoundland, Portuguese Water Dog), take them to a lake and let them swim! Did you know that just 10 minutes of swimming equals one mile of running! If you have a Retriever play a retrieving game. Even though any dog can do any job, most dogs do the job that they were bred to do the best. So know your breed and have the breed do what it is bred to do!

Choose One on One Personalize Marquette Dog Training For Best Results

Marquette  – February 1, 2013 – Welcome to our site. We would love to meet you and your dog in the Marquette, Michigan area. We specialize in making dogs “Good Canine Citizens”.

We love our pets, and there’s no friend like a dog. But sometimes our dogs can be unruly like jumping on people, barking or sniffing & even being aggressive at the dog park. Everyone wants a dog that behaves! For gentle, one on one, personalized help with dog issues, contact me, Naomi Vizena at Dogs Beyond The Fence.

The goal is Good behavior.  I am fully certified by Penn Foster, AKC & Pet Partners. I am booking appointments.

When your dog lunges or chases a car it’s dangerous & you never know when the car is coming.  Actually Group training can lack results, because dogs aren’t listening if they are playing, sniffing and protecting their turf.

Remember, Dogs Beyond The Fence offers one on one training for you & your canine friend. I will stage situations to build confidence where it’s needed.

Plus, Does your dog sit, stay, come on command, respectfully greet other dogs & mind its own business.. If not, we can teach old dogs new tricks.

Infact, Dogs Beyond The Fence can teach any dog to do the right tricks.

I can help you get “AKC certified” as a Canine Good Citizen. So for gentle, one on one, personalized help with dog issues, contact me at 906-361-4939.
