    Exercise. Well, means I have to get a farm like him. Philippines is not designed to have exercise with your dog. Except in the deepest province maybe. One reason why I think to go back to Germany. As there I can easily walk my dog(s) for hours, even without leash.

    • Duke49th

      Or at least getting a treadmill. Which I will soon. Let's see if that works out.

    With regards to “the walk” and having the leash in a position to hold your dogs head up high, what would you advise for a chihuahua? I know people use a leash on their chihuahua when showing them in competition but a harness is preferred for this breed on their every day walks due to their delicate neck. Please could you advise on how to keep a chihuahuas nose of the ground? :)

    I had a sheltie mutt with separation anxiety that got terrible after we moved and our other dog died of cancer. I went and got dog books. We would practice leaving and returning and ignoring her on our return until she calmed down. After a week of doing this lots and lots she got better. She was totally better after we adopted a cat whom she bonded with, instantly I might add. Like that was the cats purpose was to teach sunshine to be calm.

    Because of you i started tai chi. Calms down and busy with energy. So many people are saying my dog does this, my dog does that. Yeah but what do you do as a human? Humans have so many time for their phone and social media but not for living beings inside their home. We live in a world that is soooo fast, stressful. We need to practice calm energy. So many people about the separation said: does not work. Trust me, they don’t even try. Start young, don’t let the puppy walk after you the whole time.

    Hi Cesar. My son and her girlfriend owns a dog and they live in our house. I don't have problems w/the dog but i am just confused because when my son and his girlfriend is not around, he's quite (no barking) but when they are around , he barks at me again and my husband. I really luv him .It's just that he goes away when my son and his girlfriend are around.

    Thank you for this explaination. I didn't understand why my dog would stay happily in the other room when I'm working at home. But when I put him in the kennel he has anxiety...and it's all about my energy when I leave the room. Also, I now understand why an hour long walk outside does nothing for my dogs energy sometimes compared to 15 minute walk back and forth in my apartment. Walking outside, I let him smell more than he should VS inside he's total focus is on me. I'm hoping to get him a halti and a backpack. :)

    I adopted Jules, a 5 year old female yellow Labrador retriever, from a local breeder. Jules had 5 litters before being retired. Although it wasn’t a puppy mill Jules was just one of 3 females and two male adults and was housed separately in a kennel. Jules now lives with me, my husband, our 10 year old Belgian shepherd and our 3 cats. here’s my problem - Jules literally follows me everywhere inside and outside and becomes the most needy and pushy when I pay attention to anyone besides her. She wants/demands my constant attention. She isn’t mean - she doesn’t attack the other animals she just pushes her way between me and them. I don’t walk my dogs on a leash as I live on 50 acre property with no neighbors. Jules is never leashed and outside she doesn’t runs away - she always keeps me in sight. I guess she is suffering from severe separation anxiety even though my husband and I are both retired and she is NOW never really alone. Clearly, she wants all my attention. So how do I satisfy her need for healthy affection/attention? Especially in an environment that has no boundaries - no leash, no crate - ?

    I have two separate packs of dogs living in the same home. One set is common mixed breed and theyre older ( ranging between 7 to 12yrs). The other set is mixed with german shephard, rot and common. There are 5 of them, all siblings. However the girls in this pack, three of them, are nervous, anxious and aggressive towards each other. They fight with the slightest provocation, sometimes just walking past each other their hairs are raised. The two boys are calm and dont engage in much fighting other than romping. What are some methods that can help with this situation. If I go to intervene or call them to break apart that usu triggers the fight. Help me.

    Yeah my dog follows my EVERY step at home and it drives me bonkers so I started training him to stay on his bed in another room for a short while.. and yeah it's a difficult thing for him to do. Super helpful exercise though! Another thing is I don't know many people who have calm stable dogs that I can train my pups with. I can only do as much as I can with them alone, but can never take it to that next level :/

    I love this simple lessons. I don't have a dog now. I don't have the time for it. But this lessons could be applied in the future if ever I get to have one. It takes time to learn but it is always better to have an arsenal of knowledge before delving into something that would affect another being, be it a dog or cat or whatever.

    My puppy is just over 6 months old. Two weeks ago she ate something from the old compost in the garden and got poisoned by it. Called compost toxicity, she went into major seizures and went to the hospital where she recovered well, then she was spayed 4 days ago and needs to be quiet so she does tear her incision. She is a very energetic puppy,but not allowed to do exercise at this time. My question to you is, how can I help her release this energy without exercise. Thankyou

    My idea for 33:31. Schedule the dogs' playtime in a neutral zone like a dog park for several days, then the old pack members wouldn't be so surprised when someone new that they played with before barges in.

    I swear the IG comments are requesting answers to questions already explained for them. They don't even think for themselves. For example, when Cesar explained the concept of the connection, that person that is asking 18:32, he really is just asking for Cesar to tell him how to do it instead of figuring it out for himself. As Ford says "thinking is the hardest activity a human can do, so very few people engage in it". Sorry. Just got triggered by that. Love to Cesar from Upper Darby!!

      Justin Xiao, my daughter grew up with dogs, cats, birds, stray horses. Her first job after leaving home was at a pet produce shop on Sydney. She called me one day and said a customer, not the first, had walked the aisles for many minutes before asking for help; she could not find the food with her breed of dog pictured. :(

      Justin Xiao yes a lot of people say: my dog does this my dog does that. Yeah but you as a owner, what do you do? What do you want to see? People are lazy... that’s just it. Enough time for social media and their phone but not for living beings inside their home.

    Thank you so much! I have 5 little dogs in my house and one of my dogs barks and growls at people who come in the house. She has never tried to bite but she goes right into flight mode. She does it daily with my father in law. She will sit with him for hours but when he leaves the house then comes back she acts like she has never met him. I’m not sure how I can fix that and help her to not be so scared. I’ve tried the sh noise but that doesn’t work. I stay calm the whole time but nothing I’m doing seems to work ☹️

    Cesar, Thank you 🙏. Usually, how long should the walk, without the nose touching the ground, be to get the dog tired? Can we do a walk in the morning so he's ok when we go to work and play fetch at night to tired him? Or, it's better to have at least 2 walks? I have a rescued Pittbull. Been 2 years I'm is third owner and I cannot leave him. He is so anxious. He lives just for me. 😔 Thank you so much in advance you are an amazing soul. 💙

      It depends on the dog, my last dog I walked 5-6 miles every morning before work.. The last foster I had tired out after about 3-4 blocks. What Cesar is saying works, it's what I've done for years. I do also tell my dogs a unique stay command every time I leave for work or for several hours though.

    • Undefined Error

      Really any dog, no matter how big or small, should be walked at least twice a day. Walks are very important as they get to explore the scents&sights and socialize which boosts their confidence, tiring the dog out with play is great but it doesn't replace a walk. If you don't have a lot of time or energy at night maybe you can walk a short route and let the dog use the rest of its energy up with play afterwards? At any rate, it's great that you have a rescue pitbull! They often don't get a second chance, let alone a third..
