Follow whatever guidelines and permit requirements your dog park has. Read more...Click here

TriBeCa Animal Hospital in SoHo shared tips with Good Day NY viewers on winterizing your dog.
1. Most dogs do not like rock salt and de-icer; avoid areas where salt is visible. Keep in mind that some brands of rock-salt are pet-friendly.
2. Wipe your dogs paws after a walk.
3. Be on the lookout for unusual teeth chattering. That could be a sing the dog is uncomfortable from salt on its paws.
4. Check the tops and bottoms of your dog's paws for redness. This occurs when dogs chew on their paws trying to remove salt and de-icer.

In average winter temperatures most dogs enjoy going outside. They need their walks or outdoor exercise to release some of their energy. Many dogs absolutely love to run and play in snow. Huskies and other Artic breeds have coats designed for winter. Some sporting and herding breeds also have dense undercoats to keep them warm and dry.
Other dogs need extra protection from the cold. Unless they have their own cozy fur coats, dogs living in winter climates need outerwear for warmth and comfort on cold windy days. Dogs who shivered on moderately cold fall days will need a warm sweater or coat and lots of encouragement to go outside in harsh winter weather. Some dogs love wearing coats and being dressed. For others, it's something they'll learn to tolerate.
Anyone who owns a dog knows how important it is to have a well mannered pet. Dog obedience does not come overnight however. This article will give you 8 dog training tips to help you get started.
1. The first thing that you want to consider is that you should begin training your dog while it is young. Once the behavior has began, it is almost too late. You and your dog are both going to be miserable if it is not well mannered. Consider enrolling yourself as well as your dog in obedience classes.
2. It is important that you do not reward your dog when they behave badly. The only time that you should pay them any attention is when they are appropriately behaved. This way, they are going to be on their best behavior so that you won’t be happy with them.
3. The next thing that you need to keep in mind is the fact that your animal is going to be full of energy. Be sure to take your dog for a walk or play with them so that they can release the extra energy that they have built up. After they have gotten rid of their extra energy, then you can work on training them.
4. You need to have a regular time every day in order to train your dog. Be certain that it is a time of day that each of you are happy and also after you have been for your walk. This way, your dog will have gotten rid of the energy that will make them hyperactive.
5. Remember that training a puppy takes a lot of time. Be patient with your little puppy and understand that it is not always going to be like this. If you are kind and loving towards your dog, you will both enjoy the training experience.
6. It is important that you never punish your dog or raise your voice towards them. You do not want your dog to have unpleasant feelings towards you. Therefore, if your dog is behaving badly, simply ignore them or take them into a different room of your home where they can be left alone. This is a great way to teach them that is not acceptable behavior. Because of the fact that dogs crave human attention, this will be a wonderful punishment.
7. After you have given your dog instructions and it has chosen to follow them, be certain to reward your dog. This way, they will understand that they are doing the right thing.
8. Be sure to have a command that lets them know when they can get up. For instance, you can use the word “up” to let your dog know that it is okay for them to get up after you have told them to sit. Be certain to use a word that you do not normally use. This way, your dog will not be easily confused.
These are only a few of many dog training tips that have been proven successful. Try these along with many others so that you know what works best for your dog. It is important that you have a good time with your pet while you’re doing this.
