The filmmaker of “Ricky” has a dog, Romy, who is afraid of other dogs, but she loves cats. Last year he adopted a friend for her: a cat named Ricky. This film is narrated – but unscripted – by his 7-year-old neighbor, Willa, and follows Ricky and Romy as they get to know each other. Willa simply describes what she thinks the kitten is feeling on its first day home. It’s so sweet and cute and captures the innocence of a new pet so well! Share the cuteness with your family and
Train when your puppy is hungry and alert. Divide his meal into 10 portions, and throughout the day entice it to his bowl of food by using its name with the command "Come."

Although each breed of dog has its own general personality profile, ultimately every dog is unique. While some dogs are extroverts and like to be the centre of attention, others are more submissive.

Where your dog has come from and what it has experienced early in life will also affect its ability to be trained, as well its sex. Neutered dogs and females between seasons are easiest to train, while un

In the last 200 years they have been primarily bred for size, coat and colour. Humans have perpetuated breed differences in behaviour. Specific breeds are associated with certain aspects of behaviour, and some types of dogs are more predisposed toward training than others.

Dogs are similar to humans in that they need both companionship and mental and physical stimulation to achieve their potential. They respond well to rewards and develop bad habits when bored.

If you have an adult dog that has never been house trained, treat it as you would a new puppy. Never punish your dog for making a mistake in your home. Reprimanding your pet after it has an accident only teaches it to be nervous and wary of you. You want to make sure you have a strong, trusting bond always with your dog as this will facilitate any training as your
It may look like jail to you, but to the dog that has been trained from puppyhood to use it, a crate becomes a favorite place, the dog's own haven.
