What is prey drive? Prey drive is the natural, hard wired ability to chase. Any animal would not survive in the wild without a prey drive. Prey drive is stimulated by movement. We all have seen programs where the lion sees their prey, stalks it, runs it down, and eventually kills it. Without the desire to chase animals simply would die of starvation. Our domesticated dogs are a bit different. They don't hunt for themselves but still retain the prey drive. The level of prey drive should be considered when choosing a pet for your home and unique situation. Huskies have a very high prey drive whereas a Maltese does not. Prey drive does matter when you are training your pet. Prey drive can and does affect a dog's behavior. Before you purchase your next puppy, please consider all the breed characteristics and make sure it is the right pet for you.
You have decided to add a pet to your home. There are many decisions to be made. Where should I buy one? Should I use a breeder or go the local pet store. What kind of dog or cat do I want? What kind of pet is going to be a good match for me? Should I rescue a pet from a breed specific rescue or should I go to the shelter? So many questions to answer?
It is important to research the breed of dog or cat you want. Read about and go visit the breed you are interested in. Please try to avoid making an emotional decision. "Oh, he is cute and I have to have one" without researching the breed can mean disaster later on in the dog or cat's life. Please analyze your life style. Are you sedentary or are you on the go? A high energy dog might be good for some families but not others. Size of the animal is important. Is the dog or cat good with children? Are you able to provide financial stability for the animal you want. Some breeds are more costly and labor intensive than others. Are you able to provide training for the dog on an ongoing basis? It is important to thoroughly answer all these questions before you bring precious pups or cute kittens home to live with you. Pets are a lifetime commitment.
There are so many avenues that a person can use to train their pet thanks to modern technology. So, why should you hire a trainer to come to your house to help you with your pet problems? The answer is simple. Videos don't talk back to give you the important feedback you need to keep moving forward with your progress. Videos don't always provide the complete picture in the HOW TO category and simply don't offer you the nuances of knowing your pet and what makes your pet tick.
It is my hope that the blogs I am posting become interactive.....so feel free to comment and start a conversation!
How do we know what our dogs are thinking? The answer is we observe what the dog is doing and we learn how to interpret his body language. A friendly dog will have a relaxed mouth, relaxed eyes and relaxed coat to name a few signs the dog is relaxed and happy. A dog that is excessively yawning, panting (without high temperatures being present), urinating, shaking or has a change in eye color is a dog that is stressed. It would be a good idea to remove the animal from whatever is causing the dog stress so that a bad situation does not escalate and become worse.
