AKC GoodDog! Helpline – #AKCDogLover – Post No. 2

A few weeks ago, I told you all about the AKC GoodDog! Helpline.  Today I want to tell you how I plan to use the helpline for my dog…GABE.  As some of you know, Gabe is my Service Dog,  He has been well trained, but because he was a rescue, he still has some issues from his pre-Gabe days.  Every now and then we come up with a behavior that needs to be tweaked. What a fabulous thing, to know that for Gabe’s entire life, I will have access to one on one information from experts in their field.

All of us can benefit from a little help when it comes to our dogs. We love them and want what’s best for them.  A well behaved dog, is a happy dog, and it’s our responsibility to do everything in our power, to see to it that they are well taken care of.
Puppies can sometimes be a handful and having a dog behavior specialist on call,for advise can be invaluable for crate training, puppy chewing issues, and how to stop puppy nipping.
What about  knowing the difference between normal dog behavior and strange dog behavior?  How comforting to be able to AKC GoodDog Helplinemake a phone call, and have a trainer be able to sort things out.

REMEMBER THAT  WITH THE AKC GOODDOG! HELPLINE YOU GET UNLIMITED CALLS FOR THE LIFE OF YOUR DOG VIA THE TOLL FREE NUMBER!

I love my furbabies with all my heart, and I want to always do what’s best for them.  How wonderful that I know  that I can have an ever present “partner” to help me with any questions that I might have, concerning my dogs behavior.

  • That’s neat to know! We don’t have a dog right now, but we’d like to have one in the future. Resources like this will be helpful.

  • I have to admit that puppies are like have an infant all over again. As a dog lover myself and we have raised our fair shared of family friends they are lots of work. This sounds like a great resource for those who may get in a bit over their heads and for those who just need some help period. I hate when people jump in a get a 4-legged friend on a whim and don’t think about all the responsibility that goes along with it. Don’t get me wrong, they are definitely a blessing to have as a member of our family but they are just as much work as a family member and they take as much love too.

  • It’s nice to know that there is a hotline out there for people who need help with dogs. Training a puppy has always been hard for me, but knowing there is help, that makes me feel better. I’ll be able to call this line next time I get a puppy!
