In this DVD you will find an all inclusive plan to keep your dog safe if faced with a disaster or emergency.

You will learn how to train dogs to do a variety of important life saving behaviors that all dogs should know and practice (Stay, Come when called, Leash Walking, Impulse Control and more) as well as safety behaviors (wearing a muzzle, cone of shame, taking medications and so much more).

Pamela will take you through a variety of ways to condition your dog to accept wearing a cone and a muzzle, enjoy being handled and even massaged. She explains why it is important to train dogs to enjoy these things and not wait until an emergency happens when the dog is scared and worried because all of a sudden he has to wear a muzzle or a cone.

Do you or your clients have a difficult time getting dogs to take medication? This DVD will go over a few non-traditional ways on how to get your dog to take and enjoy taking his medication, without any struggle. Finally giving your dog medication will be easy and stress free for you and your dog.

Does your dog hate to have his nails trimmed? Are you worried that you will clip them too short and cause your dog pain? Pamela goes over a few ways to clip/file your dogs nails and how to find a method that works for you.

You will also learn what you will need if an emergency or disaster strikes, such as first aid kits and what to put in them, handouts that could help you relocate your dog if he were to go missing and other valuable ideas on how to be prepared for anything. Accidents, emergencies and disasters happen when you least expect it. Are you prepared? Do you know what you would do? Do you have a plan?

This DVD will help you get your dog and your family prepared with plan and know what to do when faced with an emergency, disaster or accident.

A Positive Rattlesnake Avoidance Training and Safety Program

Keep your dog safe when faced with danger!

809front-01

This program focuses on keeping your dog safe when faced with rattlesnakes. However, all the games and training techniques can be used to keep your dog safe from anything that is dangerous (Scorpions, Poisonous Frogs, Skunks, other Poisonous/Venomous Snakes, etc.), not just rattlesnakes.

In this DVD you will learn how to train behaviors designed to move dogs away from rattlesnakes and or to stay close to the handler when in areas prone to rattlesnakes using fun games. Game categories are: attention, settle, safety (example: body blocking trained as a behavior), luring, targeting, leash walking, impulse control, recall, and stay. Ultimately, you will be training your dog to view being with you highly valuable and want to stay with and pay attention to you instead of checking out what is in the environment.

You will also learn how to train a variety of tricks, use agility skills and canine freestyle behaviors to keep and move your dog away from rattlesnakes or other dangerous critters. The goal is to have fun with your dog as you are teaching skills that could save his life. In addition to all the relationship building games, trick, agility and freestyle training, you will learn how to train dogs to automatically move away from rattlesnakes (with or without you present) using sound, sight, scent and movement. Although this section of the DVD is more advanced, anyone can have success with Pam’s easy to train methods.

The methods used in this DVD are completely force free and require some clicker/marker training knowledge.

This program uses remote controlled snakes, fake snakes, snake sounds and dead snakes (snake skin or snake feces), but you could use live snakes if you are comfortable with them and treat them humanely.

This DVD is a complete guide and gives you insight into rattlesnake behavior, teaches you simple ways to tell the difference between venomous and non-venomous snakes, answers questions about rattlesnakes, provides helpful tips on safety and will even walk you through a variety of ways to make your backyard safe and rattlesnake free.

Through the use of the training games and skills in this DVD, you will build an amazing relationship with your dog and doing so, you will be able to protect your canine companion from rattlesnakes and keep him safe in other dangerous situations.

Pam’s Dog Academy is now selling SNUFFLE MATZ.

Snuffle matz are great for dogs and cats…

What can you use snuffle matz for:

If you have a dog that eats his meal too quickly, you can put his food in the snuffle matz and your dog will have to search around to find his food.  This will slow him/her down, which is much better for your dog.

If you have a dog that does not like to eat his/her dinner, the snuffle mat acts as a fun game for your dog to use his/her nose to search around and find food.

It gives your dog a job to do…

It helps calm dogs because as they sniff around to find the food, the sniffing has a calming effect on your dog.

It is great just to use as a puzzle toy where your dog has to use his/her nose to find food items.

If you have a cat, you can sprinkle cat food or treats and allow your cat to search for his/her food.

It is fun to put cat nip on and let your cat rub and roll around on it and enjoy the cat nip…

Snuffle matz are made with a plastic kitchen sink liner and fleece.

They are also machine washable.

Warning:

1.  You should ALWAYS Supervise your dog/puppy to ensure they are not eating the snuffle mat.

2.  Remove the snuffle mat when there aren’t any treats left in it.

3.  USE COMMON SENSE!  If your dog tears or eats items such as fleece toys or other dog toys when they are left out, then your dog might also do that same behavior with the snuffle mat.
