  1. Hi, I have 3 dogs and all except one did not need much poddy training but he eventually caught on. Now a year later he sometimes pees in a certain corner of the kitchen. I have tried many things but nothing works, do you have any suggestions?

    • Thank you for the question. Sounds like he’s trying to mark his territory. I would get some Nature’s Miracle to get rid of the scent. They tend to go back to where they can smell themselves. It might be in the nooks and crannies even though you cleaned up. The Nature’s Miracle will get rid of it completely. You might also try to retrain or recondition him to going outside or on a pad. I had a female dog do this before. She just needed a training reminder of “where” to go. It’s best if you can catch him in the act. You could clap your hands real loud or do something to startle him. There could also be an underlying health problem. Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. Hi Tammy,

    Great post. You are so thorough and in depth with your posts. You really should be the number one guru for all things dogs! And hopefully you will be soon 🙂

    I haven’t had a dog for a few years but I pass your articles on to my daughter. She loves dogs. I love the pics you use to. I know my daughter will take all these tips on board.

    Thanks and keep on doing what you do. You do it so well!


  3. Very interesting point on number 3 above, be flexible. I never really thought about training around feeding time with a pet. An analogy I might make is that when my sons gets home from school, he has to have a snack before he starts homework otherwise it’s kind of a lost cause. I agree 100% that consistency is key. One question I have for you, our dog tends to listen to me more than my wife. Is that typical? Does one person usually have more command? I am anxious to read your post about potty training. Our dog is older and she still has accidents at times.

    • Hi Steve, yes that is common. Your dog sees you as the “alpha” dog or leader of your family. With more training or conditioning with your wife, your dog will start to listen to her better. Just need to be consistent. Thank you for the question.

  4. I didn’t know about the secondary reinforcers but that makes a lot of sense – you don’t want the dog getting obese in the process of training him! And I like the point that trained dogs have more interesting lives/are more in synch with owners, than untrained dogs. Never thought of it that way. are some breeds harder to train than others?

    • Hi Penelope, yes some breeds are harder and need more patience and some just have a slower learning curve. These dogs will need more repetition and more work. The smartest dogs are Border Collies and pickup commands quick. I’ve had fast and slow learners. Thanks for the question.

  5. Great article I must say. A trained dog is the greatest. They are extremely smart and if you take your time as you mentioned and show them love they give it right back 10 fold. I learned some things here for if I ever get a puppy. I loved the praying dog in the picture.

  6. Hi Tammy, I super love this article. As a dog lover myself, reading through your tips makes me want to start re-training my dogs. I used to train them but with work and family stuff, it didn’t become a priority anymore. Now, as 2018 is just kicking off, it made me think to start again. I appreciate your article for inspiring me again =) Super thanks =)

  7. I can see that dog training is a science — and must be studied as such. We cannot afford to reinvent the wheel. We must do our homework.

    For example, some things are counterintuitive. Once such thing is as the minuscule time window for the dog to associate praise with the right behavior.

    By the way, thank you for reminding us to pick treats that our dogs really love!
