Loving Paws and Tales

Comforting Care and a Dog in the Library – My name is Buddy and I’m a Golden Retreiver. Mom taught me to be a “Reader Dog”. I work at the Beaver Library where lots of kids read to me. It is fun, and I really like kids. I’m also a “Comfort Dog”. I go to the hospital and nursing home to visit and help people get well. Mom told me “Fuzz Therapy” is a really cool thing, and I have lots of fuzz (fur). I love to see people laugh and smile. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

Rattlesnake_dog-e1363891172683Snake -Avoidance Training

Snake Avoidance training trains your dog to avoid rattlesnakes.

We use a negative conditioning process that teaches dogs to associate the sound and / or odor of a rattlesnake, with a negative stim from an electronic collar. We use real snakes, and train in a setting that simulates the desert.

The goal that all of us share is to raise the standards of how we teach our dogs. Not to train with force, but to teach through meaningful communication; not to base our teaching on belief, tradition, and superstition but to balance science with ethics and to make it free for ALL.
