About me

The following dogs are all being cared for at an “interim” shelter in Port Elizabeth. They have all either been confiscated, picked up as strays, abandoned or born in the shelter. We need to get them out of the kennels into loving homes AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. FEMALE MIN. PIN. Abandoned outside the “shelter” last Tuesday morning (5 October 2010). She was VERY SCARED. She is tiny and still very young. She is suffering from a little bit of mange, but has already started treatment for this. Could you offer this tiny girl a space in your heart? MOMMY & PUP This mommy and her male puppy are pining for a loving home. It took a lot of encouragement for Mommy to come out from where she was hiding in the kennel at the back, but once she experienced a bit of love and attention, she could not get enough. Puppy is more adventurous and curious. He just had to come look at what was happening outside. It broke my heart to leave them there. PLEASE OPEN YOUR HEART & HOME TO THEM. FEMALE PUPPY This playful girl is full of energy and absolutely loves her belly rubs. She is about 4 months old and was born at the “shelter”. All her siblings have found homes already. Please help her find her loving family too. Should you need any further information on any of these beautiful dogs OR would like to meet any of them, kindly contact Rose on 041 – 506 1743 (office hours) OR 072 286 2908. Alternatively, you can e-mail me on: nicky.daniels@damelin.co.za Re-location to another town/city will be considered. Spaying / neutering & vaccinations will be arranged upon adoption. Please help us help them!

PET TIP
JUMPING UP
The best way to stop puppy jumping is to simply ignore him when he does.  Turn your back to him fold your arms and stand still until he has fours paws on the ground. Then quickly get down to his level and give him lots of praise and rewards if he jumps up again, stand up and turn away until he stops jumping, and repeat. We are rewarding the desired behaviour and ignoring the bad behaviour. We also need to make sure that all people who come into contact with pup know this is what is to be done when pup jumps otherwise some unsuspecting visitor could unknowingly be undoing all your hard work by patting the dog or telling him to get off, both of these are rewarding the dog as he is getting the attention he seeks

The following exercises are also very effective for the jumping dog:
Put your puppy on a lead and tie the end securely to a doorknob.  
Make sure you have yummy treats with you and from a short distance move towards the puppy with excitement.  As soon as he jumps up, stop moving towards him and take a step backwards away from the pup.  As soon as he stops jumping move towards him again. Continue this approach until you can get all the way to the pup and give him a cuddle without jumping lots of praise and rewards from that position, moving back again if he jumps up in excitement.   
You could also do this exercise but you are the door know and you have another person approach the dog, as above once the person gets all the way to your dog without him jumping give him lots of praise and rewards.
This method will also teach him how to greet people, and to pay attention to you rather than them.
If you can catch your dog before he is about to launch himself off the ground give him something else to do like sit. But only if it’s before his paws have left the floor.
Happy Training.
