Bringing Home a New Dog

Bringing home a new dog is always exciting!  But what if your existing pets and your new dog don’t get along?  What if your new dog causes a problem, even if it’s not his fault, with the other pets in your household?  Some dogs are gentle and social and get along well with other pets.  Other dogs may prefer to have their own space (along with some pretty strong prey instincts), which can make accliminating them into your home with your existing pets a lot more complicated.

Bringing Home a New DogThe Dog Calming Code

Doggy Dan has created an easy-to-follow program called, The Dog Calming Code, which shows you how to quickly and easily integrate the 5 Golden Rules into your dog’s daily routine.  Doing these exercises with your new dog will make introducing him to your other pets way less complicated, because you’ll have full control over your new dog.  And more importantly, your new dog will TRUST you.

Here’s what The Dog Calming Code will do for you and your dog:

1.  Sets Up a New, Health Relationship Between You and Your Dog.  Setting up a healthy relationship with your dog is one of the most important things you can do as a dog owner—and The Dog Calming Code will teach you how to do just that. When you get this right, EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS INTO PLACE.

2.  Makes Training Easier.  Once you’ve got The Dog Calming Code in place and a solid relationship set up, you’ll find your dog is LISTENING to you, wanting to FOLLOW your lead and TAKE DIRECTION.

  • 3.  The Dog Calming Code is Totally Instinctive to Dogs.  Meaning?  It’s dog training that actually MAKE SENSE TO YOUR DOG!  You’ll be able to communicate with your dog in a way that they will immediately understand.  You’ll be speaking your dog’s language, which is the easiest, most effective way of training your dog.

4.  The Dog Calming Code Builds Tolerance.  Your dog will stop reacting aggressively or getting upset when something alarming suddenly occurs, like a child playing, a squirrel running, a friend coming over for a visit, or another dog approaching.  All of these things will be far less likely to set your dog off.

5.  The result of The Dog Calming Code is a Calm Dog.  Soon after putting The Dog Calming Code in place, you’ll notice that your dog is generally far calmer.  That’s because your dog is now focused, watching and listening to YOU.  He’ll be able to switch off, and be much calmer and HAPPIER about life.
