About me

Good morning everyone :-) Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Patches and I am a gorgeous 4 year old jack russell.Things were going hunky dory in my life until recently when my human dad and I moved into a townhouse. Because my dad works all day, I get very lonely and bored and so to amuse myself I have become rather vocal in expressing my disgust at being left alone surrounded by these 4 walls. The next door neighbou is not amused by what he refers to as "barking all day" and my dad now has to find a new home for me. If you would like to adopt me please email my dad. I am currently in PE but I will be happy to relocate to anywhere in South Africa so if you want to adopt me just let my dad know. There will be a home check just to make sure I will be happy there.

PET TIP
STEALING
When your dog steals something do you chase after him trying to get it back?  
Don’t play this game of chase anymore.  You are reinforcing an unwanted behaviour. The more attention you give him for stealing something, the more he’ll steal.    
As long as it’s not dangerous ignore him when he steals something, he’ll stop pretty soon if there is no reinforcement involved. Write the incident off to your mistake, as you are the one who left it lying around in the first place. Remember prevention is better than cure.
Make sure he can’t get to items, which are off-limits. Keep tables and counters completely free of food and other fun chewables; keep the laundry out of your dogs reach for several months until he no longer looks there for fun.  He is stealing this stuff to entertain himself so rather have plenty of yummy chew treats to keep him busy and make sure he is getting exercise and his mind is being stimulated with fun games. If your dog has stolen something you need to take back. Don’t just take the article from him this will only teach him that when he has his fun toy and you come towards him, his fun is going to stop and he will begin to hide with his stolen items. Instead offer him something much better a great big yummy chew toy, not only will he drop the stolen item for you to get back but he will be occupied with this new yummy treat and he will completely forget his stolen item. This will also make him happy when he sees you approaching because good things come from you.
