How far will a dog whistle work?
Generally, an adult average sized dog at 12 months of age, weighs about twice their weight at 4 months of age, or 2.5x the weight at 14 weeks.
Adult giant breeds grow more slowly, take longer to mature, and don't reach adult growth until they're at least 16-18 months old.
We are often asked if it is possible to adopt a dog from Dogs Trust if the prospective owners work full-time and the dog would have to be left alone all day.
The answer is usually no.
This is because we do not recommend that a dog should be left alone for longer than four hours at a time.
A fairly accurate calculation you can do to predict an adult height for your puppy is to multiply her height at six months by 100 and divide that answer by 75.
For example, a puppy who is 8 inches at the shoulder when she is 6 months old should be between 10.5 and 11 inches at the shoulder when she is finished growing.
Allowing an employee to bring a dog to work can qualify as a reasonable accommodation, but only if the dog qualifies as a "service animal" under the ADA.
However, a dog that has not been trained in any specific task and provides only emotional support or comfort does not qualify as a service animal.
Silent whistles make a sound that dogs can hear, but humans can't, so your neighbors won't even know you're using it.
Whenever the dog barks, blow the whistle.
it may take a number of attempts, but eventually the dog will associate barking with the piercing noise of the whistle, and stop barking.
For a 10-week old puppy, make sure this is at least every 3 hours.
Take your pup to the potty training spot (by this time they should be busting), praise and reward when they go.
Play with your pup and then settle them back down into the crate.
Repeat this through the day until you return home from work.
Check his ears.
If your puppy's ears stand up when he gets excited, they probably will stand permanently by the time he is 6-months-old.
Another way to tell if your pup's ears are likely to stand is by observing where they are set on the head.
