Training Your Dog To Stay

 

If you want your dog to be safe then one of the most important things you can do is train him to “Stay”.  When your dog masters this command you can be assured that you can keep him in a safe spot if there is danger around. 

 

Important as it may be, the “Stay” command can be quite difficult for your dog to learn. Why?  Simply because this command requires that your dog stay put while you move around – this can be difficult as it is in your pet’s nature to follow you.  However, with persistence and perseverance, you can both master this command.

 

Before you start training your dog to stay, you must make sure he has mastered the “Sit” command as it is the first part of the “Stay” command.  Don’t confuse your dog by trying to teach him too many commands at once, start with one, then move on to the next and then the next and so on. 

 

Having said that, if your dog has mastered the “Sit” command, here are some steps to follow in order to train your dog to “Stay”:

 

  1. Start with your dog in the sitting position.  Put your hand up with the palm facing your dog and say “Stay”.  Use a firm and clear voice for the command.  Then take a step backwards.

 

  1. Your dog’s natural tendency will be to follow you so he will probably get up and come to you.  At this point you want to repeat the “Sit” and “Stay” commands. 

 

  1. This is where it can get tricky.  Some dogs will “get it” and stay in just a few tries, but others insist on getting up and following you.  If yours insists on following, there is a little trick you can try to reinforce the behavior you want.  You will need to be near some sort of post or even a tree.  Put the dog’s collar and a long leash on and wrap the leash around the tree while keeping hold of the end.  As the dog starts to move towards you, you can pull on the leash which will keep him in place.

 

  1. Once you get your dog to stay after you have taken one step, try taking two steps, then three, then four.  You will find that the further away you get, the less your dog “stays”.  Here is where persistence and repetition come into play – just keep trying the command while moving further and further away.

Remember, you don’t need to hit a home run during the first training session. 


Do a little bit each day and you will soon find that your dog is staying in position for longer and longer amounts of time.

I'm having a great deal of trouble typing today's newsletter, because my shoulders have swallowed my neck. I'm not quite sure when this happened, but clearly something needs to be done.  

Stretch at Your Desk

My options are: 1) Crank up my chair to its maximum height and start wearing my keyboard around my neck, or 2) learn some stretches I can do right at my desk to solve this problem once and for all.

DID YOU KNOW?
Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to Pick the little 'stringy things' off it. That's how the primates do it.

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
?

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.
It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!
Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.
?

Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.

It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream; then beat them.
?

Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.

Reheat Pizza
Heat leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove; set heat to med-low
and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the food channel and it really works.

Easy Deviled Eggs

Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal; mash till they are all broken up Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy; squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done - easy clean up.
?

Reheating refrigerated bread

To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in
a microwave next to a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.
?

Newspaper weeds away
Start putting torn newspaper in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers,
put layers around the plants, overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers.
?

Broken Glass

Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.


Flexible vacuum
To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel
roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

Reducing Static Cling

Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and ... ta da! ... static is gone.

Measuring Cups

Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water.
Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient (peanut butter, honey, etc.) and watch how easily it comes right out.
?

Foggy Windshield?

Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!
?

Reopening envelope
If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.


?
Conditioner
Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.


?
Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2 with Apple Cider Vinegar
and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the< /B> cup and gone forever!

Get Rid of Ants

Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

INFO ABOUT CLOTHES DRYERS
The heating unit went out on my dryer!
The gentleman that fixes things around the house for us told us that he wanted to show us something and he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter.
It was clean. (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load of clothes.)  He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it.
The lint filter is made of a mesh material. I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like.
Well .... the hot water just sat on top of the mesh! It didn't go through it at all! He told us  that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh - that's what burns out the heating unit.

You can't SEE the film, but it's there.  It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes soft and static free.
You know how they can feel waxy when you take them out of the box ... well this stuff builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen.

This is also what causes dryer units to potentially burn your  house down with it! He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush
? at least every six months.

He said that increases the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How about that!?!  Learn something new everyday! I certainly didn't know dryer sheets would do that.  So, I thought I'd share!

Note:
 I went to my dryer and tested my screen by running water on it.
The water ran through a little bit but mostly collected all the water in the mesh screen.  I washed it with warm soapy water and a nylon brush and I had it done in 30 seconds.  Then when I rinsed it ... the water ran right thru the screen!  There wasn't any puddling at all! That repairman knew what he was talking about!

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK.

POSITIVE QUOTES OF THE DAY

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

-- Samuel Ullman

I have never been a millionaire, but I have enjoyed a great meal, a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a walk with a friend, a hug from a child, a cup of soup, a kiss behind the ear. There are plenty of life's tiny delights for all of us.

http://www.dennisbartram.com/body-dyn... Peace is a state of harmony, the absence of hostility. This term is applied to describe a cessation of or lapse in violent international conflict; in this international context, peace is the opposite of war. Peace can also describe a relationship between any parties characterized by respect, justice, and goodwill.

More generally, peace can pertain to an individual relative to her or his environment, as peaceful can describe calm, serenity, and silence. This latter understanding of peace can also pertain to an individual's sense of himself or herself, as to be "at peace" with one's self would indicate the same serenity, calm, and equilibrium within oneself.
