dog training

Your holiday celebrations may have been merrier this season if you added a furry family member. But your gift may also bring some added grief. A new dog or puppy needs time to adjust to a new home, family and other pets. There can be accidents, aggression and plenty of anxiety to go around. It may be time to call in an expert.

Jennifer Arnold is the founder of Canine Assistants and has now written a new book for dog owners and lovers.

National Train Your Dog Month was started six years ago. Since so many dogs and puppies find new homes during the holidays, January is a good time to start their socialization and training. So how do you teach Fido not to bark at the mailman, chase squirrels and beg for food at the dinner table, and be friendly with your other pets?
