Enjoying Time with Dogs

IMG_5519.jpg

One good outcome of social distancing is we’re spending more time with our canine companions. Not only are dogs getting more walks, they’re no longer being left alone for long portions of the day. This could be a good time to bond with your dog by taking up obedience training or to correct bad habits. It’s also important to understand how behaviors, both our own and our dogs, can lead to bad habits. Joining us on The Point is Tom Shelby. He’s has spent his career training and working with dogs. First in canine search and rescue and later as a private dog trainer. He’s written the Dog Charmer Column in the Martha’s Vineyard Times and is the author of Dog Training Diaries, Proven Expert Tips and Tricks to Live in Harmony with your Dog
