June News & Tips

Hello!  Welcome to our June News  We hope you enjoy it.

Have you been to an SFDC Meetup yet? People are really enjoying this easy and fun way to learn and practice training tips, meet other dog owners, and have a great time playing with their dogs.


Our next regular Meetup with FREE training tips, behavior help, treats and socialization practice is going to be on July 18th at the park.  In the meantime, we have a special Meetup in June:

Meet us on June 11 at PAWS Petchitecture


The Pooch Coach is “Ask The Trainer”.  Stop by our booth and say hello. 


Come out and support a wonderful organization and have a fun time with your dog!
PAWS helps keep people together with their pets. Imagine being too ill and financially strapped to take care of your dog. How can you lose your best friend on top of your health?? But it could easily happen. PAWS was formed to help keep people together with their best friends who could not otherwise afford to keep them. PAWS provides food, vet care, walks and, via The Pooch Coach, behavioral & training assistance to their clients. They serve hundreds of people and their pets, but they have waiting list almost as long as their client list!


PAWS Petchitecture is voted the #1 Bay Area Dog event every year. Great food & drink, a silent auction, live music and DOGS! Some dog companies will be on hand too. The Pooch Coach will be giving out free dog training advice, Happy Hounds Massage will be giving dog massages, Petcube will be on hand to demonstrate their wonderful pet camera & laser device, and Lotus Vets will be there for “Ask the Vet”.


Here is a link to more information & ticket sales on the PAWS’ website.

 Is your dog your child?

You should treat your dog like a child!

I often use analogies when speaking about dog behavior to my clients.  If you think of your dog as a 4 or 5 year old child and ask yourself “would I be OK with my child acting like this?”, you have an easy way to see what changes can and should be made to make your and your dog’s life happier, calmer and safer.


Would you allow your child to jump on guests or beg from them for food (or money)?   If you child didn’t want to go bed, would you offer him $5 to change his mind and then go to $10 if he still refused? As silly as these things sound, they are exactly the types of things people allow their dogs to get away with every day.


We came up with a longer list of items.  Take a look and see if there’s anything on there that your dog does that you’d like to change.  And then, make it happen!  If you’re having trouble, just give The Pooch Coach a call!

Check out our list of behaviors to compare and see how your dog ranks!



Still not sure?

Rover.com loved this analogy.  The Pooch Coach was asked to help write an article for them on this topic with writer Jacqueline Bennett of Yellow Dog Blog.
