How To Encourage Better Dog Behaviour

Whether your dog is a puppy or an adult, it might still be a nuisance from time to time. When a dog feels energetic, they can be playful and sometimes not be on their best behaviour. Although it is good to let your dog play, it is best to set some rules so that they can be on good behaviour. If you sometimes struggle with managing your dog and want it to be on better behaviour, here are some tips.

Use the right toys

Dogs love to play and using toys is a great way to expend their energy as well as train them. Using a toy like Runball promotes exercise and good behaviour. Plus, it will tire your dog out before it tires you out so you won’t have to worry about your dog depleting all of your energy out in the garden or on a walk.


Toys can be disruptive to a dogs behaviour if you allow them to play with them and take full control. Whereas a toy that you can control will ensure that they know to act appropriately and it allows them to be under your control. 


Feed your dog right

Your dog needs healthy and balanced food, just like you do. Therefore, it is important to feed your dog right. Whether you like to cook fresh for your dog or use pre-packaged foods, ensure that you are giving them the right nutrition. 


Dogs need plenty of vitamin A, D, E, calcium, and phosphorus. Giving them a balanced diet will make them happy and grow well, which can influence good behaviour. 


Training

To ensure that your dog is on their best behaviour and understands that they are not in control, it is a good idea to train them. You can do this yourself or use a professional dog trainer. 


Training will teach your dog commands such as sit, stay, lie down, and come. However, it will also teach them when it is okay to be playful and when is not. It will strengthen your bond with your dog when they are well trained and well behaved. 


Rewards

During training and after, offering your dog rewards will ensure that they feel stimulated after being good. 

Giving your dog a treat as a reward for being well behaved will help them understand the bonuses of being well behaved and that you are happy. Thus, it will encourage them to be well behaved more often. 


Plenty of exercise

Dogs have a lot of energy and to expend that energy, the best solution is exercise. All dogs need a daily walk so taking them for one so that they can run and play will ensure that they are calm within the house. 


On walks, it is a good time to train them. You can call them to come, make them sit, or teach them when to stop barking when out on a playing field. It will ensure that they understand the rules, which they can utilise at home too.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
