Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks.

That old adage has gone out with the horse and buggy.  Yes, you CAN teach an older four-legged addition to your household new behavioral patterns.  As a matter of fact, it may be absolutely essential when you adopt a new dog (new to your family) from somewhere that does not know their “story”.

There is the obvious…potty training.  Your new furry friend may be afraid of everything.  Then there is crate training of a dog that may have never experienced such things.  Of course, loud noises can trigger erratic behavior including barking which you may want to discourage in your household.  Also, how does the new addition get along with kids?

There are a myriad of things that your new (not so much a puppy any more) may need to learn or re-learn.  That is why you call on the half-century of expertise that Las Vegas humane dog trainer Dennis Danskin brings.  He has trained young and old, large and small breeds since the 60’s (Not 1860’s…it just seems like it!) Call Dennis for a free in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.

Before you add to your family think about the time of year.

This may or may NOT be the right time to add a four-legged friend to the family mix.  Right now, you have a full house.  The kids are home for a bit longer from school and vacation time may be over, but give some thought to the notion of adopting a new furry addition to your household.  In a few weeks things will return to normal, so who will train this new puppy?

That subject (if not addressed first) could haunt you for the next 15 years.  The proper training of your new puppy is as important as the breed and compatibility that you consider when adopting.  It should NEVER, NEVER be taken lightly.  I recommend moving forward in the month of August with one important caveat.

Please call me for a FREE, no obligation, in-home evaluation of your new addition.  My name is Dennis Danskin.  Please see my credentials by visiting  I have been training puppies and grown dogs for over fifty years with success and compassion in the Las Vegas area.  Give me call and we’ll schedule a visit at (702) 327-4744.

Look What they are Saying about our Las Vegas “Dog Whisperer”

A dog is a commitment.  It is not supposed to be an impulse purchase like a pair of shoes.  It IS a decade + dedication to an additional member of your family.  If you think of it in any other way we urge you to reconsider the adoption of a new best friend.  A dog is not a place holder, or a baby sitter, or a security system…it is another family member!

People who have hired Las Vegas area dog trainer Dennis Danskin say things like this…”he was incredibly thorough and knowledgeable”.  “Dennis has done wonders with my two little monsters”.  “It was incredible to see the results after the first visit”.  And, this one, "Dennis to the rescue!”.

Yes indeed, Dennis to the rescue sums it up pretty well.  He takes a daunting situation that you would never want to tackle alone and makes it fairly routine.  And, he does it ALL within the comfort and familiarity of your own home.  You cannot do better than to call humane Las Vegas area dog trainer Dennis Danskin at (702) 327-4744.

Are you Going Out There with a Fur Coat On?

You wouldn’t consider doing that this time of year in Vegas.  Yet, your dog has to do it every day!  Maybe we don’t think enough about that.  And, leave it to puppies…they love to sunbathe even if it is over a hundred degrees outside.  The first real heat waves each year are many times the most dangerous.

The first thing that I would like you to remember is to make sure your dog has had a good grooming to pull all or any extra hair/undercoat that has not shed away.  For dogs that will be going outside, it’s critical to have ventilated shade, that means an area that provides a lot of shade where the sun is not heating up the ground or concrete. 

Now to the subject of training in the midst of a hot Las Vegas summer.  I feature humane in-home dog training for a reason.  Familiar surroundings reap successful rewards.  That is true 12 months a year, but especially now.  Please give me a call for a free evaluation in the air- conditioned comfort of your home.  I am Dennis Danskin at (702) 327-4744.
