There is a train switch yard near where I walk my dog sometimes. Every so often there are empty cars sitting on some tracks. I hardly ever take my camera there since if there are cars stilling, they aren’t that interesting or the lighting isn’t great. However for the first time an engine was felt sitting and I happened to take my camera. Luck was with me today.

I took a few more shots of the train that I’ll post some time soon. I’m just happy to finally get a shot of the front of an engine on the tracks without putting my life at risk.

For those wondering, CN stands for "Canadian National Railroad" which is a Canada wide product distribution company. The other you may have heard of is CP, which is "Canadian Pacific Railroad"

Dog owners who are responsible know that good dogs are not made, they’re trained. Proper training includes behavioral and obedience instruction, as well as socialization, all of which enable your pooch to interact safely and appropriately with other people and animals. These tips will enable you to train your dog yourself or locate a professional.

One thing you might want to do is train your dog to hold a toy in his mouth. When they grab it with their mouth, use the clicker and provide them with a treat. After this is done a few times, watch and wait for your dog to put the toy inside his mouth. When he does respond, click and provide a reward. After this, you should only reward your dog after he holds the toy in his mouth.

Always train your dog in a motivated, positive environment. When your dog follows commands during training, always reward him. If you are negative and use punishment in your training, the dog will just be afraid and might not do as you ask.

A key element of fostering happiness and good health in your dog is to keep it mentally stimulated. Amongst other things, dogs love going for walks, chewing bones, and playing with Kong toys filled with peanut butter. If you don’t keep your dog entertained, they will make their own fun by wreaking havoc on your belongings.

Give your dog a regular elimination and feeding schedule, so you can house train them. This will give you an idea of when the dog is likely to have to go, so you can take it outdoors to take care of this matter before an accident occurs on your rug. Having a set schedule will teach your dog how to wait until he can go outside for the next potty break.

Teaching your dog to not tug and pull when on his leash is an important part of his training. This is both for the dog’s safety and your own, as well.

Figure out the things that motivate your dog to help you succeed at dog training. You will also get educated about what your dog likes or doesn’t like, and what will work and what won’t. Whatever your goals, your dog’s training routine should include variety and plenty of positive reinforcement. If your dog is happy, it will behave better and be easier to train.

Use the appropriate tone of voice when you are correcting your pet. Dogs are in tune with human emotions and pick much of that up from your voice. Using a stern tone will help reinforce discipline if used appropriately.

Prior to ever leaving your dog at home alone for a considerable length of time, make sure he has a good long walk. If your dog is exhausted, he won’t experience as much anxiety when you leave.

Effective dog training requires instilling good behaviors from day one. It is far simpler to teach a dog to do something the right way than to break bad habits. Never feed your dog from the table, if you don’t want him to get the habit of begging for scraps.

Do not let other sources of stress affect your training sessions with your dog. Always keep in mind that unless your dog just did something bad right before this moment, your dealing with your pup should be only a positive and loving experience for them.


It’s to be expected that your new puppy will likely have an accident now and then. Make certain the accidents are cleaned up immediately, so your training efforts cans stay on course. When a dog uses the house to relive itself, the smell can linger on the carpet if not cleaned properly. You will then have a dog that will continue to use that same spot all of the time. Buy a product specially designed to neutralize odors.

We hope these tips will help you and other people enjoy your dog to the fullest. A well trained dog leads to a better relationship. You can train your dog yourself, or find a professional to help, no matter which way you go, having a well-trained dog will offer you and your dog many happy years together.
