                                        Seeking Videos of Aggressive Dog Behavior

We're going to be assembling a video for our new website featuring clips of dogs acting aggressively through fencelines, household windows, car windows and on tie-outs in the yard.  If you have such a video or can safely create such a video, we'd love for you to submit it through our email address as an attachment.  Videos should also have an audio track and shouldn't be more than 30 seconds in length.  Our aim is to educate the public about the biggest contributing factors to dog aggression.  All submitted videos will become the property of Ted Terroux's Canine College and since we're offering this video as a public service, we aren't offering compensation for these submissions.

We want to extend a grateful thank you to the hundreds of our loyal clients who participated in the Best of Denver's A-List voting this year.


Designed specifically for puppies between 9 and 16 weeks of age.  Begin this four-session course on any Saturday and attend four consecutive classes that cover all of the behavior modeling, modification, constructive socialization and training that are essential to raising a puppy that will give you a great head start on the Basic Course and the juvenile stage.  Puppies must have their first series of vaccinations one week prior to first class attendance and no exposure to unknown dogs in the past 17 days.  Read the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior statement on the importance of puppy socialization.



Learn every aspect of living with a dog in this 7-week course that meets once a week for 90 minutes to 2 hours covering: secure environment, 24/7 leadership interaction, positive dog and people socialization, constructive play & exercise, reliable single command obedience, effective behavior modification and overall care.  Don't let the word "Basic" fool you.  We cover in one course what most trainers break into 2 or 3 courses!  Includes our comprehensive book for ready reference anytime you need it. (If your dog has fear or aggression issues, please call for other options before you register.)

Our next Basic Obedience & Behavior Courses begin:

Saturday, July 30 @ 1:00PM

Thursday, August 11 @ 6:30PM

Saturday, August 27 @ 10:30AM



A 6-week course featuring advanced on-leash and long-line training with different distraction themes every week and an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluation in Week 6.  Successful completion of a Basic Course (or equivalent) is required.  Students may start as late as Week 3 and wrap around to Week 2.

Unsafe Dog Treats

The FDA has noted a substantial increase in dog illnesses associated with imported treats and dog foods; even some very popular name brands. Our advice?  Don't buy dog treats unless they specifically say "Made in the USA," regardless of the brand.  Don't fall for "distributed by" city locations that happen to be in the USA.  Products that are made in Canada are likely to be safer, too.  Don't buy treats preserved with ethoxyquin or contain animal ingredients that don't specify exactly what animal the ingredients came from.  The best treats?  Make them easily yourself!  Cooked (pork-free) low-sodium hot dog pieces, raw carrots and green beans are great treats that are healthier and safer alternatives.



Keep all dogs, even large breeds, leashed on walks and avoid using a leash longer than 8 feet in areas where coyotes can hide.  Keep unsupervised yard time to an absolute minimum for all dogs and personally escort small breeds when they are in the yard, even if you have tall fencing.  Coyotes are known to jump 6' fences and can enter your home through a dog door.  Off leash larger dogs have been lured away by one coyote only to be brought into a small pack ambush.  There have even been a few recent reports of coyotes biting small children.  Keep outdoor trash in animal proof containers and do not feed coyotes under any circumstances.  Make a point of scaring off any coyote in your proximity by yelling loudly and throwing rocks or sticks, making yourself look as big and threatening as possible.  Let's work together to keep coyotes afraid of humans.
