    Hi i am a new mom to a 5 month old retriever and pug puppy, and im finding alot of behavior problems from what he was allowed to get away with before.

    My husband and i are not home most of the day and we do expect problems, and we do not blame the puppy for most of it, I have trained dogs before but we cannot seem to stop the most of the behavior. Like this is the 3rd shower curtain we’ve had we generally try to keep it up but if we forget then hes all over it.

    We don’t like disiplining our dog with our hands if we can help it.. so i was curious about other ideas, on how to prositivly train our baby. like time outs.. (we don’t have a crate)

    No need for any negative training. Read my puppy training articles and BUY A CRATE and start crate-training. You will also need to increase the activity level of this active puppy. Either hire someone to come in mid-day to play with the puppy or enroll in a doggy day care program. This (and most) puppys needs more activity.

    A good way to train your puppy is positive reinforcement for good days. Along with using crate training for time outs.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
