Then here are some tips to help. When we have time off, our pets receive a lot of extra attention, and when that goes away, it can cause behavior problems – like chewing and excessive barking. So, here are a few tips for helping your dog re-adjust, courtesy of Bark Busters: • Before you leave for the day, make a low growling sound. This may sound strange, but your dog will actually be relaxed by your voice. In the wild, the pack leader growls when they leave, which indicates theyll return soon. • Make sure your dog has its own shelter. This is about more than keeping your pet out of the rain. Having a crate, dog bed, or dog house is comforting to an animal – even when the weathers good. • Make sure they have things to do. Dogs love toys, but they get used to them quickly. Try using different ones for different days so your pet always has something new. If your dog spends time outside, scatter some food around the yard. Since dogs are natural foragers, looking for the treats will keep them occupied for hours. • Ignore your dog for a few minutes when you come home. Most dogs are so happy to see their owners that they lose control. That leads to unwanted behaviors like jumping, barking, and even playful nipping.To curb this behavior, wait until your dog settles down before you reward him with attention.

In this episode join us as we learn about the Pen Pals of San Quentin program. The Marin Humane Society brings dogs in need of medical or behavioral rehabilitation to San Quentin State Prison, where they spend time with selected inmates. The inmates have been taught how to socialize and train the dogs to prepare them to be adopted into a permanent home. In addition, we will also have our weekly training tip with Dr. Ian Dunbar and a visit to our resident vet, Dr. Erin Troy.
