Lancaster goes to the dogs as couple plans $2.1 million canine sports arena

Lancaster is going to the dogs.
The town is weighing a pair of projects that could turn the suburban community into a kind of puppy paradise.
The big one is a $2.1-million sports arena for dogs that could be called a canine coliseum with a 10,000-square foot turf ring for flyball, trick training and agility competitions. [Read More]

New sense discovered in dog noses: the ability to detect heat

Dogs’ noses just got a bit more amazing. Not only are they up to 100 million times more sensitive than ours, they can sense weak thermal radiation—the body heat of mammalian prey, a new study reveals.
The find helps explain how canines with impaired sight, hearing, or smell can still hunt successfully. [Read More]

Warm weather is coming! 
As beautiful morning walks and dog park season approaches, here are 3 tips to introduce your puppy to a leash.

1. Introduce the puppy to the collar or harness and leash. 
Start out by letting him get used to wearing a collar or harness and a leash. Let him wear them for short periods of time in the house while you are playing with him and giving him treats. The puppy should love collar-and-leash time because it represents food and fun.

2. Teach a cue. 
Introduce your puppy to a sound cue that means, “food is coming.” Some people like to click and treat, some people use a word like “yes,” and some people cluck their tongue.  The second your puppy turns toward you and/or looks at you, reward him with a treat. After a few repetitions, you’ll notice your puppy not only looking at you, but also coming over to you for the treat.

3. Make the puppy come to you. While he’s on his way to you, still wearing the leash and collar, back up a few paces and then reward him when he gets to you. Continue the progression until your puppy, upon hearing the cue noise, comes to you and walks with you a few paces. Remember that puppies have a short attention span, so keep your sessions short, and end them when your puppy is still eager to do more, not when he’s mentally exhausted.
