Burrito Wrangling Update # 29: I've started doing target training with Murph, and I can't even tell you how much he loves it! He's both food motivated and praise motivated, so he sits happily while I ask him to touch my hand to receive a treat with his tail wagging the...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 26: one of the life saving tools I use when the Burritos are particularly riled up or Murph appears to be dangerously anxious is a bully stick. These dog chews are amazingly robust and, depending upon the size, can last up to an hour even for...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 25: So the vet behaviorist visit was brilliant. Very informative and worth every cent. We had a ~2 hour consult with both dogs together, where we discussed all of Murph's problem behaviors, their triggers and methods for management. We got a...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 24: We are on our way to see the veterinary behaviorist in Sugar Land, Texas today (http://texasvetbehavior.com/)!! We've been on the road since 6am (it's a 4.5 hr drive each way) and both dogs are totally content sleeping in the car. I don't...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 23: I'm very excited to report that Murph voluntarily climbed onto the couch that Mila was sleeping on, and squeezed his giant body behind mine and fell asleep with his head on top of her feet! This is a HUGE step for him because he didn't ev...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 22: We took our first walk tonight with Murph wearing his neW LAGuard Vest @laguard1945 (www.laguardvest.com; $100). I needed a way to get some extra exercise for Murph on short walks (or in the yard) because: 1) he's hard to walk and always...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 21: Since Murphy has been more stressed recently, and it is too dark to safely walk the dogs in the morning, I thought I would give a summary of my morning routine and how I try to keep the peace. Mila is a total lunatic in the AM and so it c...

Burrito Wrangling Update # 20: The Burritos are doing well, and playing together without any incidents. They have both been exceptionally emotional over the past two days and I'm not sure why, perhaps it's the shifts in weather. I can tell that Murph is more anxious th...

Burrito Wrangling # 19: I'm happy to report that the Burritos are playing like lunatics in both the yard and the bedroom. I keep their contact limited at night, when Murph seems to be the most stressed. This morning I practiced self control with them while wrestling on...

Burrito Wrangling Update #18: It has been a week and a half since the Burritos' "event" and they are doing exceptionally well. With the help of Train Without Pain, I have been able to get a clearer understanding of Murph's triggers. Mila is over her kennel cough, and s...
