House training your dog / House training tips for a new puppy

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

by Viktor Borisov

When a new puppy arrives in the house, it’s an exciting time for everyone. In order for the homecoming to proceed as smoothly as possible, it’s a good idea to spend a little bit of time in preparation.

One of the major challenges of dog ownership (particularly for first-time owners) is the issue of house training. If you equip yourself with some rudimentary knowledge and a positive attitude, though, it’s a lot easier than most people make it out to be.

The New Arrival

As soon as you bring the puppy home, take her outside. The excitement of the car journey coupled with the unfamiliar faces, sights, and sounds will have her needing to go anyway - and if you can orchestrate her first toilet break so that it occurs outside, instead of inside, then so much the better. And not just from the perspective of short-term hygiene, either - the more your puppy relieves herself inside, the more likely she is to do it again.

The homecoming is a great opportunity for you to set a precedent for toilet behavior!

- Take her to your designated toilet area, and put her down on the grass.

- Wait while she sniffs around - refrain from petting her or playing with her just yet, because you don’t want her to forge an association between this area and games. She has to learn that this part of the yard is for toilet breaks only.

- When she begins to relieve herself, say the phrase you want her to associate with toilet breaks: “Go pee” or “potty time” or whatever works for you. It’s best if that phrase is short and easily recognizable - and use the same voice inflection each time, too (so that your dog can easily memorize the meaning of the phrase.)

- When she’s done, make a big fuss over her: shower her in praise and affection, and give her a little treat.

When you take her inside the house, the house training regime you’ve decided upon should start immediately.

As far as house training goes, crate training is generally accepted to be the most effective and efficient means of house training a puppy in a short space of time.

What is crate training?

Crate-training is essentially the use of a small indoor kennel (the crate) to confine your young puppy when you’re not actively supervising her.

How does it work?

Crate training is based on all dogs’ inherent dislike of soiling the area where they sleep. Because you’re restricting your puppy’s movement to her sleeping space, she’ll instinctively “hold it in” until she’s let out of the crate (provided you don’t leave her in there too long, of course!)

This is why it’s important that the crate is sized properly: if it’s too big, she’ll be able to use one end as a bed and one end as a toilet, which defeats the whole purpose!

How do I choose a crate?

As a general guideline, it’s more cost-effective for you to choose a crate that’s big enough for her to grow into. It should be big enough for the adult dog to stand up comfortably without crouching, turn around in, and stretch out - but no bigger (so that she doesn’t choose one part as her bed, and one part as her toilet!)

Because the adult dog is likely to be considerably larger than the puppy, it’ll most likely be necessary for you to use a barrier to reduce the internal size of the crate. A wire grille or board will do just fine.

Alternatively, you can use a cheap crate (or even make one yourself) and replace it with a larger model as your puppy grows.

Using the crate for house training

Crate training works like this: your puppy is in that crate at all times unless she’s sleeping, eating, outside with you going to the toilet, or being played with (active supervision.)

You’ll need to be consistent, or else it won’t work: you can’t let your puppy wander off through the house unless you’re focusing your complete attention on her.

If you allow her access to the house before she’s thoroughly house trained, you’re basically encouraging her to relieve herself inside - and remember, each time she does this, it’ll be easier for her to do it again (and again … and again …)

Sample schedule of a morning’s crate training

7am: Wake up. Puppy comes outside with you for a toilet break. 7.25: Breakfast time. 7.45: Back outside for another toilet break (accompanied by you, of course.) 7.50 - 8.45: Play-time! Puppy is out of the crate being actively played with, cuddled, etc. 8.45: Outside for another toilet break. 8.50 -

11: Puppy goes back in the crate for a nap 11 am: Puppy comes outside with you for a toilet break. 11.05 - 12.30: Playtime! Puppy is out of the crate being played with and petted. 12:30: Lunch time. 12.45: Puppy comes outside with you for a toilet break. 1 - 3.30: Puppy goes back in the crate for a nap.

… and so on throughout the day.

Crate training generally takes one to two months (depending on the breed of your dog and how much time you spend on the training process.) As the puppy grows older, you can begin to reduce the amount of time spent in the crate - but beware of doing this too soon!

Other crate training rules

- Your puppy probably won’t be too happy to go in the crate the first couple of times she uses it. She wants to be outside, being showered with affection and attention, and hanging out with you (of course!) But it really is for her own good - in a surprisingly short time, she’ll come to accept the crate as her own personal haven where she can go to relax and get a couple hours’ uninterrupted sleep. It’s important to persevere: do not respond to any whining or crying.

- The best place for the crate to be is the hub of the household: usually the den or the kitchen, anywhere where people tend to congregate. Just because she’s in the crate doesn’t mean she can’t still feel like part of the household; it’s important for her not to feel isolated or excluded.

- The crate should be a welcoming, inviting place for her to go. Lay a couple of thick blankets or towels on the floor, and place a few toys and a chew or two inside it as well. The door should be invitingly open at all times (unless she’s in there, of course, in which case it should be securely shut.)

Some toilet facts about puppies that will come in handy

- Puppies’ bladders and bowels are so small and weak that they have only a very small window of opportunity between knowing that they need to go, and having that need become an immediate reality. Because of this, it’s imperative that you take her outside as soon as she wakes up (she’ll let you know she needs to go out by pawing the door and whining), and within ten minutes of eating or playing.

- Behaviors that indicate she needs to go outside include sniffing the ground and circling. Again, because she’s only little, she won’t exhibit these warning signs for very long - so as soon as she starts, take her out straight away. Better an unnecessary trip to the yard than an unnecessary wet patch (or pile) on the carpet!

- The maximum amount of time that a puppy can be crated at one time is figured out using the following equation: her age in months, plus one. So, a three-month old puppy can be crated for a maximum of four hours.

However, this is likely to be physically pretty uncomfortable for her (not to mention hard on her emotionally and psychologically: it’s tough being cramped up with nothing to do), so you should really take her out at least once every two hours during the day. If she’s sleeping, of course, just let her sleep until she wakes up naturally.

Walleye Summer Peak Fishing Period - Walleye Fisherman Heaven

Thursday, April 30th, 2009
by Sck

by Jadran Z. Transcona

In order to best explain when and how the “Walleye Summer Peak ” occurs it helps to work through your Walleye fish behavior throughout the season of the year.

Tracking your Walleye fish’s behavior from just after Lake Manitoba ice-out until the summertime period - the Walleye fish typically spawn when spring time water conditions rise to the mid 40’s F.

The spawn period is followed by what I termed the Post-Spawn period. Post spawn period can be seen as a resting phase for the fish, in between periods, when the fish scatter and indeed feed very little. Experienced Walleye fisherman know well that this is a time in the year , which the Walleyes seem never to bite at bait , and the fisherman may just as well take a holiday or vacation as well too.

Shortly, however the tired little bodies of these Walleyes need nourishment and the resumption of aggressive feeding indicates the beginning of the Pre-Summer Period. While no set temperature or temperatures indicate when Walleye fish themselves enter their Pre-Summer period, if the experienced and established.

Walleye fisherman takes note - water temperatures themselves will reach the 60’s F , in the accurate thermometers of the tackle box of the Walleye fisherman who are destined to make those Manitoba angler record catches of killer sized Walleye .

Even though the fish feed aggressively as this is the direct time of year when fish establish their biggest and most of their growth and weight gains, the Walleye are usually quite scattered at this point in time.Indeed a prime characteristic of the Pre-Summer Period is the absence of what you might call definite and continuing fishing patterns.

For Walleye fisherman it’s on off time period.You might well catch several fish one day rigging deep water, several more crank baiting mid-depth flats, and even a fish fishing shallow water for large mouth.

Slowly, though as water temperatures climb upwards, the fish can be counted on to be regrouping. There is also a gradual tendency for them to start “keying” and targeting specific food sources. Those famous Walleye patterns of your favorite fishing lakes and holes begin to return.

The final item pushing Walleye fish from the Pre-summer Period into the short lived yet intense, period of feeding that Walleye fanatics know as the “Walleye Summer Peak ” , the “Summer Time Walleye Peak” or “Walleye Summer Heaven” , always seems to be the same pattern. You can count on it. A period of calm very warm weather. In many cases this is the first really hot summer time weather of the season.

This weather often pushes surface water temperature near their summer highs. For instance, the summer surface temperature of many meso lakes hovers around 72 - 74 degrees F.

It may eventually climb into the upper 70’s or even the low 80’s F. However the pattern and tip off is that the whole cycle of events typically happens very very slowly. Thus, the Summer Peak Period for Walleyes seems always to begin with the end of the rapid, early - summer rise in water temperatures.

A variety of environmental factors stimulates this Summer Peak Walleye activity. Three seem to be the most important. One that the fish themselves are “hungry” and thus aggressive. This is the time period when most of their yearly growth occurs. They really have no choice or choices in the matter totally.

These fish must eat or they will not grow. It’s as simple as that. Next this is the first time since spawning that big females group together. Their competitive group activity helps stimulate even more intense feeding activity. Lastly in this list of factors is the fact that there are absolutely tons of plankton in the waters of all sorts and thus “hordes” of fish fry.

It can be said that entire lakes are brimming with food of all sorts and varieties for each and every Walleye fish to savor. This spurs vigorous food chain activity at all levels - not only at the upper ranges of the food chain where the Walleye reside. It can almost be said that Peak Summer Walleyes are akin to a group of starving men at a smorgasbord buffet dinner setting at the lake cottage.

It s the Summer Peak Walleye Period. Heaven for Walleye fisherman and sports anglers alike.
