Common Complaints from Clients – Their Dog’s Safety Around Cars
By Ben Kersen
A common complaint I receive from my future Wonderdog clients is about the fact that their dog has no car sense! Do you remember being taught as a young child to look both ways before crossing the street? Picture the scene: you are playing fetch with your dog. The ball gets knocked out into the street and your dog races after it unaware of anything else including the approaching car.…
Over one million dogs are hit by motor vehicles annually. This statistic should be a big incentive for you to car-proof your dog. I have offered car proofing through my business, Ben Kersen & the Wonderdogs for over 30 years now and am confident that I have saved many dogs’ lives because of it.
Ben Kersen & the Wonderdogs’ car proofing training teaches your dog:
|1. to jump back whenever a vehicle comes directly toward it.2. never to go off curb onto asphalt unless you given your “okay”.
3. to always sit at every curb before crossing the road.
These three techniques can be taught quite easily and are invaluable in saving your dog’s life. Visit our website for more information:www.wonderdogs.ca.
Remember you should ALWAYS use a leash when walking near traffic as things can happen quickly. The only exception is if your dog has been through our advanced car proofing training, and even then, you must always be very careful.
Until Next Time,
Ben Kersen & the Wonderdogs
