Shiraz is 11 weeks old and he's still looking for his perfect pet home. His right eye is brown, and left eye is parti (with a speck of blue at the bottom). He also has a short tail.

Did you know that puppies have a critical socialisation period that only lasts until they are around four months old? Watch this video to learn what socialisation is, why it is so important, and how to use it to give your puppy the best start in life.

NOTE: For those of you asking about older dogs that are already fearful, it is most certainly possible to improve their confidence! It is a much more complicated and often time consuming process than puppy socialisation (hence why socialisation is so important) but it can definitely be done. One of the topics of my upcoming videos will be helping fearful dogs.

Might not exactly be Red Bull, but Riesling also gives you wings 🤣
Had Riesling with me at work tonight, so of course we have to try out the latest puppy fashion 😍

TO.P.A.Z. Alaskan Klee Kai shared Balanced Life K9 Training's video.
When a dog "snaps", it's not always their fault at all!
We often hear: There were no warning signs, it came out of nowhere, the other dog was just trying to play ... then the dog just attacked.
There are so many layers to communication, body language, social etiquette and socialization with dogs that are not carefully monitored enough by people.
To provide an example of an #overlyfriendly #dog I let Sheena pester Elke the #germanshepherd for a few extra minutes and get on her nerves (this is not something we generally allow). Even after being corrected, if I had not stepped in to help reinforce, Sheena was immediately ready to go right back to pushing Elke's buttons.
Often times we see not as friendly or neutral dogs blamed for "starting" something with a puppy or younger dog when they we #justtryingtoplay 🙄👎!
More often than not it is the #playful pups behavior that causes the conflict!
Too often people will bring dogs together and just #letthemworkitout on their own and things go south quickly. Or allow the friendly dog to pester and push buttons unrelentingly. Dog parks, dog daycare, play dates, family visits / gatherings, bringing a new dog or puppy into the home, etc etc.
Dogs can quickly go from tolerating to becoming defensive/offensive when they realize no one else will help curb the unwanted, pushy behavior of the #friendly dog 🐶.
We will sometimes allow a dog to correct or be corrected, but a majority of the time I step in to take control and responsibility so that all the dogs understand I will help. I don't want neutral dogs to feel like they have to correct, correct, correct and will be allowed to act as other dogs punching bags or fearful dogs to be bullied into self defense and over reacting.
Especially this holiday season when families will be getting together to celebrate (and perhaps including canine companions) it is important to take responsibility and help neutralize pushy behavior so our dogs don't have to play sheriff.
Help break up potential conflicts and DONT just let them work it out.

I'm looking for a very special home for Pinot.
As you may know (if you follow this page's posts), Pinot suffers from a cleft soft palate and will be needing surgery to repair it. Upon further discussion with my vet, it's decided that it will be best to delay the surgery until she's a bit bigger, so that there's more soft tissue for them to pull from the palate for the repair. She also has a pediatric heart murmur which the vet thinks she will just grow out of on her own.
The previous people who wanted her have decided to back out because of the health concern, which I totally understand.
Pinot is fully weaned and she eats and drinks normally on her own. She has an exceptionally happy and outgoing personality, and she is not afraid of anything (she was the first to learn to get up and down the full flight of stairs). She loves people!
If you'd like more information, please email me email@example.com

Bye Merlot! I can't ask for a better family than the one who chose you.
Have lots of fun with your AKK big sister Brie, and remember to behave yourself and don't cause any trouble 😘
