Amazing Animals!

A pit bull named Lilly risked her life to pull her unconscious owner from the path of an oncoming freight train last week. The loyal dog suffered serious injuries but saved her owner, Fox News reports.

Christine Spain was walking home with Lilly when she fell unconscious onto the railroad tracks in Shirley, Mass., the Sentinel and Enterprise reports.

Before long, a freight train was barreling towards them.

"I don't know if she collapsed or what happened, but she passed out," Rob Halpin, spokesman for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals told the Sentinel and Enterprise. "The engineer, the only witness, told police he saw a dog frantically pulling at a woman as he drew closer. He did everything he could. He heard a thump and thought he hit both."

The engineer hit the brakes and got off the train to find Spain unharmed.

The 8-year-old pit bull suffered severe injury to her right foot. She also fractured her pelvis in multiple locations and sustained other internal injuries.

Puppy, Dog Training and behaviour

Bookmark and SharePuppy and dog training

Puppies learn naturally. Dog training is very rewarding. They will start to learn the second their eyes open and are most open to new experiences in the first 4 months. Puppy training must start as early as 8 weeks. Many wait until the puppy are older because they think that puppies know but little or learn little while still young. Start you puppy training as soon as you get home. Dogs learn habits and by association. Creating good habits at a young age will make for a well behaved dog in the future.

Puppy trainingPuppies thrive on mental and physical stimulation and introducing you puppy to new situations and environments will keep them interested in learning new things. Short walks or playing are great ways to stimulate your puppy and will help to strengthen your bond with your pet.

Try to stimulate your puppy in short but regular periods, a puppy left unstimulated will often turn to destructive or disruptive behavior which will get worse as the dog gets older. Remember, puppies learn habits, teach him from the very moment they set home! If you cannot teach them which you as a "puppy parent" must do, take them for puppy training classes! 

It is best to interact with your dog so toys should be kept to a minimum, allow for one chew toy that he/she will always have access to and doesn’t require your involvement. Keep another toy like a ball or rope that will only be used when you are playing with the dog. Once you are finished playing, remove the toy. This will create great excitement for the puppy and strengthen your bond. This will also teach the puppy to only play with or chew “approved” items  rather than the furniture or your brand new pair of shoe's! Understand puppy behaviour and why they do what they do. Puppies like babies like to chew on things for their growing teeth and one of the first things is puppy training biting - teach them not to bite you or chew things that is not permitted to chew.
