Good Day to You,

No question about it, a well-trained pet is less likely to develop behavior that will cause them a tragic end.

Does traditional training do enough to help our pets avoid this tragedy?

What’s missing?

Our pets don’t reason the same way that we do, yet we rationalize that because it makes sense to us, it must also make sense to our pets.

When we use “pet sense” to train our pet we are much better understood. When our pet understands what is expected, because they “get” what we are trying to help them understand, they can relax. They don’t have to constantly guess what we want.

Most behavior that causes us to give up our pet is caused by stress and lack of understanding between owner and pet. We can do better.

This site is becoming focused on ways to help prevent behavior issues leading to abandonment, sheltering and euthanasia.

The section Life Skills for Cats is dedicated to recognizing what these Life Skills are and how we can teach them to our cats.

Our dogs are more fortunate. New revolutionary dog training already exists that addresses training our dogs using methods that tap into the way that they reason.

The section Life Skills for Dogs is dedicated to the Life Skills training developed by Doggy Dan, The Online Dog Trainer.

I am in complete agreement with Doggy Dan and his method. If you own a dog, need to train your puppy or are adopting a new dog from the shelter, do yourself and your dog a big favor and learn more about this training.

If you are having behavior issues with your dog, don’t give up!

Your old dog CAN learn new tricks and new behavior. Go to the Life Skills for Dogs section. Learn about how the 5 Golden Rules can transform your relationship with your dog and be amazed by how much change can take place.

So what do you consider to be lifesaving skills that your dog or cat should know?

Good Day to You, My wife and I have had pets for the majority of our lives. I’m the “computer person”, although she gives inspiration in the background, she is also a very private person. So am I, when not online. At one point, when we lived in the country and times weren’t so tough, we had three (3) dogs and six (6) cats. So you see my love for pets (all animals) runs deep. I’m a firm believer that the very best relationship we can have with our pets is based upon mutual respect and proper care. Like ourselves, our pets are unique and valuable individuals with feelings. Deserving of the best quality of life. I believe that no one practice or belief is the only or best way to provide a quality of life for ourselves and our pets. Supporting Pet and Family Life Quality - I plan to do this by finding and sharing suggestions to help solve problems. My Best to You Arthur (Arth) Strout 12 Summer St., Apt. 2 Augusta, ME 04330
