dogIDs Reveals Holiday 2011 Special of the Week

(PRWEB) December 06, 2011

dogIDs, a leading provider of personalized designer dog collars, custom dog tags, dog beds and dog leashes, has announced its Holiday 2011 Special of the Week: Nylon ScruffTag Personalized Dog ID Collars. These new patented dog IDs have quickly become a customer favorite amongst the company’s vast array of personalized dog ID collars.

These adjustable, heavy duty yet silky smooth nylon webbing collars feature a personalized nameplate and side release buckle. Additionally, the collars are the perfect combination of safety and style: The side release military grade plastic buckle makes it extremely easy to take the collar on and off. The personalized nameplate offers owners the security of knowing their dog has proper identification at all times. The nameplate is contoured to fit the curvature of a dog’s scruff.

Introduced earlier this fall, the Nylon ScruffTag Personalized Dog ID Collars have become top sellers for a number of reasons, including their high quality and wide array of vibrant color choices. Additionally, owners report that they like that dogs can’t chew off the ID tag and that there are no “jingly” or noisy tags.

As a ScruffTag Collar, the collar’s personalized nameplate sits perfectly – and comfortably – on the back of a dog’s neck at all times for easy identification. The adjustable sliding nameplate has a locking slider on each side to ensure the nameplate stays in the desired position.

“Week after week, the Nylon ScruffTag Personalized Dog ID Collars remain at the top of our ‘Top Sellers’ list,” says Clint Howitz, pack leader and president of dogIDs. “The collar makes a great gift, and with a matching nylon lease, you can’t go wrong!”

These handmade dog collars – made in the USA of colorfast, double braid webbing material – are available in 14 vibrant colors, as are the matching leashes. The personalized dog ID collars are available in five sizes, and the dog leashes are available in four. Strong yet comfortable, the collars feature a corrosion-resistant brass buckle and D-ring as well as an anodized aluminum ID name plate for engraving. dogIDs’ personalization process utilizes laser engraving that is guaranteed for the life of the dog. Up to five lines of information, with a choice of 14 font styles, can be engraved on the collar’s nameplate.

QR Code ScruffTags that take advantage of today’s smartphone technology are also available. The ID collars include a unique web address and engraved QR code, the latter which can be scanned with any smartphone, including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Microsoft Windows Mobile and more.

Additionally, dogIDs is offering Secret Santa Specials that enable customers to save more than 20 percent on select products and gift packages, including dog boots, sweaters, outdoor dog bundle packages, and playful dog bundle packages.

San Francisco Dog Walking Service Superdog Offers Tips for Street Training Dogs Not to Run Into Traffic

San Francisco Dog Walking Service Superdog Offers Tips for Street Training Dogs Not to Run Into Traffic

Dog Training at San Francisco’s SuperDog

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 03, 2011

Walking one’s dog on a busy street can be a frightening experience for dog and dog owner alike. With the help of a book he read long ago called “Urban Dog” by Cis Frankel, Corey Vitale of SuperDog, a San Francisco dog walking service has come up with some simple tips to keep a best friend safe.

Corey’s dog, Rocky, a 1-year-old boxer, learned commands that may have saved his life one day while he was walking with Mrs. Vitale. Rocky ran into the street to save a ball he had dropped. When Mrs. Vitale instinctively yelled, “Street,” Rocky froze in his tracks.

An accidentally dropped leash, a stray cat on the other side of the road, or a delectable smell wafting from a restaurant across the street could all contribute to a dog’s impulsive action to run into traffic.

Corey came up with some useful information and exercises to walk a dog safely, and maybe even save his life:

The command “Street” should be used to replace the word “heel/ or sit” when you reach the street corner or the curb The goal is to have your dog immediately stop at the curb or short distance before reaching the curb. To begin, take your dog out with their leash and practice setting your dog up for failure. Start approx. 5 steps away from the curb and as you approach a step or two from crossing the curb say, “Street”. Use a firm, sharp and audible tone in your voice. As your dog walks over the invisible barrier of the curb, yell “BACK! Return your dog back to the curb with immediacy and say “Street”. Repeat several times until your dog is apprehensive to walk past the curb and say “Street” to reinforce to your dog that this command means that they are not permitted to walk past the curb.

When your dog begins to pick up on that, they will not walk past the curb when you say, “Street,” then begin having your dog learn to “Sit and Stay” at the curb and wait for your next instruction. Repeat this step several times, by walking up to the curb and say “Street” then say, “Sit”, then “Stay”. Do this until your dog understands, but never push your dog too hard if they are not ready. Come back later and work on it if it is causing your dog too much stress. Also, when using the “Stay command hold the palm of your hand out and toward your dog, like a crossing guard would signal “Stay”.

After your dog has learned how to associate to sit and stay when you say, “Street” (also, your dog will likely not do this on their own, so always follow up the “Street” command with “Sit and Stay”) then you are ready for the final step which is to say “Cross” when its safe for your dog to walk into the street with you.

To begin the command “Cross” ask your dog to remain in a “Sit/ Stay,” take 3 steps into the road and when it’s safe to release your dog, say “Cross” and walk your dog to the other side of the road. Repeat this step several times, by going from “Street” to “Sit”, to “Stay” then “Cross”.

To increase your dogs understanding of this command always use different time intervals before giving the “Cross” command.

After your dog has mastered this you can begin another fun exercise. Again, in order for your dog to associate what the command “Street” means you will need to set up your dog for failure. This time have a partner with you and pick a time of day where there is considerable less traffic (early morning or evening). Begin by having your partner hold your dog on-leash, then fake your dog into running over the curb into the street! When your dog, runs into the street, yell, “Back” and have your partner walk your dog to the curbside. Repeat again, until your dog recognizes that they cannot run into the street after you.

Next exercise, attach a second leash to your dogs leash (or buy a 15ft lead) and ask your partner to give your dog more slack on the leash. The goal will be for your dog not to enter the street as you walk around a parked car. If your dog, runs or follows you into the street, yell, “Back!” and say “Street” when returning to the curbside. When you’ve walked passed 1 parked car, walk up to the curb and congratulate/ praise your dog for not running into the street. Repeat this step until the desired result. Increase the number of parked cars you walk around until your dog learns that a no time can they run into the street. The goal can be to walk 1 full side of a city block or 5-10 parked cars.

Just a reminder, if your dog fails by not yielding at the curb after the “Street” command always reinforce this command on the appropriate side of the curb. Always repeat the steps: Street, Sit, Stay, and then Cross.
