BALANCE Their Drive…

Not only for proper physical stimualtion but just as important if not more they need psycological stimulation. This is done by appealing to thier instintual drive. I do it in 3 ways. I call it my 3RS.  This stands for RuFF Them which means work them by doing work that again that they instintually take to like I do…

  • Urban MUSHing aka FurWheeling- tethered to a bike or sled like vehicle designed for them to pull or run with for long runs…CLICK HERE for more about Urban MUSHing
  • Lure Coursing akaThe Mazing Chase – a field of usually 3 plus acres with a pulley system that has a string with a flag or even a toy rides on for the Dog to chase..some Dogs can reach 40 MPH so this equipment is designed to run at these speeds. This is work for prey driven Dogs that will engage it. One of my Huskies can do over 12 miles chasing the flag…For more CLICK HERE

For the Next R which stands for RUN Them I do an activity I call Free-Ranging. This is off leash Roaming and Running. Since they are not contained by any physical boundaries they need to speciifically trained for Recall (come back to you on command). Since these breeds again are Wolf Like and independent this is the hardest but most importnat command to teach. For MORE about Free-Ranging CLICK HERE

The last R stands for REST. A properly engaged Dog (physically and mentally stimualted) will be ready for some important  REST time. In addition this will curb unwanted behaviors and make training easier as they say “A tired Dog is a GOOD Dog! For More about RELAXATION for Dogs CLICK HERE
