When you buy a new dog and bring her home, you have to prepare to house train her or she will eventually tear up your house. Many people have no idea of the importance of learning how to house train their dogs. A well trained dog knows when and where to go use the bathroom, keep schedules given by the owner and many other benefits. Here are 6 super tricks on how to house train your dog.
Step 1. The best time to begin to apply these tips and to start training your dog is when she is between the ages of 8-12 weeks old.
Step 2. Experts in the dog training area suggest implementing a crate in your dogs training process. A crate resembles a cage with see through bars and a locking door. It looks like a jail, but it should not be treated as such. Rather it should be made delightful for your dog to enter it. Make it cozy for her. Never keep her in the cage for over 2 hours at a time unless sleeping.
Step 3. Dogs do not relieve themselves in areas that they consider their domain. Once they make their crate their domain, they will never urinate in or around it. So make sure you lead your dog continually to the proper place where she can go to the bathroom.
Step 4. Always leave the house through the same door every time when in the presence of your dog. Now when you do this, your dog will scratch at that door when she needs to go outside to use the bathroom in the future.
Step 5. Try to take your dog out to use the bathroom around the same time each and every day. Your dog will now train herself to hold her bladder until that appointed time that you have set.
Step 6. If your not-yet-housebroken dog is used to roaming freely around the house, look for clues that tell you he needs to go. Your dog may suddenly put his nose down and sniff the ground intently. He may begin to circle an area. Or, he may stare at the door with an intense look on his face. Signs like these tell you to drop what you’re doing and get that dog out of the house. If you catch your dog doing his business inside (and only if you catch him – not after you discover he has already committed the crime), rush over and stop him by grasping his collar, pulling up on it, and saying, “NO” in a deep, stern voice.
Follow these how to house train your dog tips and you will be better off. I wish you the best.…
Adjusting the house to the landscape is the first task to be solved when building on difficult terrain. If your block of land has slopes up to 20% – it's rather regular terrain. The difficulties start to appear on slopes that are steeper than that.
Main problems can be divided into 3 categories:
1) Some additional research to determine the danger of dirt slipping down should be done
2) The foundations and plumbing will require some additional work
3) Some additional work to level the soil might be necessary
And of course any of above translates into additional expenses.
If the allotment is in a real danger of soil slip, for example the soil has a steep rocky slope underneath and gets lots of rainfall or has ground water – it makes no sense to build on it.
However, if that's not the case, then building on steep slope might produce very interesting output. History has many examples of people, who had to deal with difficult conditions, created the most magnificent structures, some of which we can still see in these days. They include the Machu Picchu city in Peru, great castles of Europe, Svan's watchtowers in high mountains of Georgia, and fort Metsada in Israel.
To make the idea of building on difficult terrain a reality, several things need to fall together:
1) The wish to build on this particular block of land and the ability to finance the process
2) A talented architect and engineer who can fit the house into the relief while making it secure, safe and sound
3) Qualified builders who can implement everything according to the plans
So what are the advantages of building on a slope? First, nothing compares to the panoramic view from your terrace. Also, it is possible to create several levels: the garage on the upper level, the bedrooms and living areas below and the back yard and garden on the lowest level. The best thing about this setting is that the road and the driveway – with all the noise and the dust – are left on top, while the house is located below. More of the house is now exposed to the sun light. The garden can have many picturesque features such as little terraces, steps, miniature walls, cozy spots.
The whole presence of the house is improved, as this unique facade is created. The interior of the house benefit from larger windows and various open staircases, they look "weightless" and mix in harmony with the nature.
Another issue to address is the soundness of the house built on a slope. In many ways it depends on the soil underneath the foundations. If the soil is mostly sand or mud, then it makes sense to create terraced foundations, made of concrete bands and retaining walls, anchored in the soil.
If the foundations are to be built on rocks, concrete piles are better. The necessary diameter of a pile for 2 -3 level house is 35 – 40 cm, …
Have you been looking to buy some Home Interiors products cheap but do not want to sell them yourself? Are you looking for that low wholesale pricing? Well I'm writing this article today to tell you how that is possible.
First you will need to become a consultant, no there are no high start up fees or any hidden costs and no you will not have to sell anything. But by becoming a consultant you make yourself eligible to purchase the products at the wholesale level. Once you have become a consultant you have to purchase a first order, usually this is less than $ 200. Your first order is usually discounted even further from the wholesale order so you will get even larger discounts. Unfortunately these are usually a one time deal to get you started. After purchasing your first order this holds your consultant status for 3 months which means you have at least 3 months of buying the product at the wholesale level. After the three months is up however you need to make sure you are purchasing $ 150 worth of product every 3 months to keep you contract and consultant status, if you're like me this is not hard at all. Broken down that is $ 50 a month. If you find yourself a little short on orders ask some family or friends if they want to purchase anything at your discount.
To become a consultant you will need to get in touch with a current consultant to have them sign you up. You will need your date of birth, social security number (yes they give you a 1099 form at the end of the year), and mailing information. You can find a consultant by going to their webpage or listed at the end of this article is my webpage to sign up if you like (I get back with you within 12 hours without on a weekend). Beware however some consultants will not sign you up under them if they know you are purchasing for your personal self and not planning on actively selling the product. I sign anyone up because I am given a 2% commission on the sales but all that really amounts to is $ 1 a month if you are only purchasing the $ 150 every three months. I do not deny anyone for any reason. After you've become a consultant you can go right online and place your order if you need help with this the person that signed you up can help walk you through it which you may want to do anyway to get some really good deals. A lot of times there are discontinued products you can buy at even lower rates or upcoming sales that you will want to get in on if you do not know about them but your consultant who signed you up would know all of these things and I ' m sure is more then willing to help you out. …
From chocolate chip cookies to baked fish, we cook many different things in the kitchen. But if the kitchen is starting to smell like chocolate chip baked fish, it's time to do some deodorizing. Baking soda is a simple and inexpensive natural cleaning product that will safely and effectively remove odors from your kitchen.
This is one of the most well-known ways to deodorize your kitchen with baking soda. You can just open up a box or put some into a small dish and place it into your refrigerator or freezer. Stir the contents of the box or dish periodically to freshen it. Replace the box or dish every couple of months or when the refrigerator starts to smell like it's time for a replacement.
Keep your drains fresh by pouring some baking soda down them and flushing with water. Using vinegar instead of water will also help with a clogged drain. However do not add vinegar if you have just poured a commercial drain cleaner or bleach down the sink.
Garbage cans are notorious odor collectors in the kitchen. To keep yours clean and fresh, wash it out with a mixture of baking soda and water. You can also sprinkle some into the bottom of the can before adding a new trash bag.
Stuck-on food and lingering smells in the microwave can affect the entire kitchen. To deodorize your microwave and help remove stuck-on food, place a few tablespoons of baking soda into a bowl of water. Microwave this for a few minutes until boiling. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then remove the bowl carefully. This should remove odors and loosen any messes in the microwave, allowing you to wipe them away with a clean cloth. …
