The Sports Event Every Small Business Owner Should Watch

Can you imagine leading a pack of 12 Siberian Huskies across 1,000 miles of freezing cold (and brutally tough) Alaskan terrain?

I can’t.

Sleeping as much as you can in a paper thin tent…

Eating rock hard beef jerky whenever you get a chance…

And being blasted by Mother Nature.

And while many would argue that the Tour De France or the Kona Ironman are the toughest endurance events on the planet, I say it’s the Iditarod dog race.

Why?

Because anyone who’s willing to lead a pack of 12 dogs for 20 days while Mother Nature is doing her best to CRUSH this person, is someone with a boatload of mental toughness to do darn near anything they set their mind to.

And here’s something else to ponder:

The Iditarod participants get next to no chance to rethink… re-strategize… or change course because the clock keeps on ticking. So they have no choice but to go balls to the wall hoping their original race plan is enough to win.

Sound familiar?

Everything about this race reminds me of how business is done in the 21st century.

You got all kinds of competitors dying to eat your lunch.

You got all kinds of customers price shopping you on the internet.

You got all kinds of government regulations strapped around your neck.

And despite all of these roadblocks, you have to find a way to lead your business (as well as your team if you have employees) over, around, through and under every single obstacle that stands in your way.

So what?

What’s the big lesson here?

Now that I think of it, the lesson here is the fact that business is tough. Business is hard. Success does not come easy no matter how many times we’re reminded about that one-in-a-million overnight success.

Sure, you can certainly have a big breakthrough in business.

But more than likely, you’re going to have days, weeks, months and maybe even years where the going is slow like the Iditarod dog race. And if you are truly committed to success then you have to keep plowing along… making slow and steady progress until you lead your pack of dogs across the finish line.

The irony in business is the fact that the finish line never comes.

Huh?

Yeah, because once you achieve one goal there is another goal looming on the horizon.

This is also why you have to celebrate your success (when you cross that finish line) so you don’t burn yourself out.

So there you have it.

The sporting event you should follow if you own a small business and are serious about making it successful.

Your small classified ad must compete with other ads for the readers attention. Your small classifieds has no artwork or layout.

Siberian Husky Puppy Training – Keys to Success

If you want to learn about Siberian Husky puppy training, then you should continue on reading. We will be discussing three main topics: housebreaking, socialization, and chewing. After reading this article you should be able to successfully train your puppy.

Housebreaking is one of the main keys towards Siberian Husky puppy training. Without it, you may as well not bother with the training. In order to successfully housebreak your puppy, use positive reinforcement. Give him lots of praise when he goes outside to do his business. Never use punishment when attempting to housebreak him. If you yell at him five minutes after making a mess on the living room floor, he will not register your yelling with him making a mess. Instead he would register you yelling with whatever he is currently doing. If you can use positive reinforcement instead of using negative reinforcement, you’ll be well on your way to housebreaking your puppy.

Another major key towards Siberian Husky puppy training is socialization. If your puppy is not socialized, you will encounter many problems when you take him out for walks or when you have guests over. Socialization allows him to get used to different scenarios, so he doesn’t feel anxious or scared. Take your puppy to different environments such as the park, beach, and around the neighborhood. Introduce your puppy to different people. Have friends and relatives come over to visit, or take him out to meet other people. By getting him to meet others, he will not see your friends and relatives as threats when they come and visit. Exposing him to different noises, smells, and situations will also work in lowering his anxiety. Once you are able to expose your Husky puppy to a variety of people and situations, you’ll have successfully socialized your puppy.

Finally chewing, the last major key in Siberian Husky puppy training. Chewing can become a real problem with your dog when he grows up if it is not dealt with properly while he is a puppy. Give him chew toys to chew on and praise him when he uses them. Don’t give him old shoes or slippers as chew toys because he will be unable to tell the difference between the shoes you gave him to chew on and your fancy designer shoes. Puppies also like to explore with their mouths, which may cause them to try and chew on you. If this happens, don’t yell and scream at him. Instead, give him a firm “no” and a chew toy. If you give him enough chew toys and praise for chewing on them, he will learn to only chew on the toys and not your hands or the table legs.

Siberian Husky puppy training can be a difficult task if you don’t know what you should be doing. Housebreaking, socialization, and chewing are essential if you are to have any success in training your Husky puppy. If you can manage these three tasks, you will see results and a well trained Siberian Husky puppy.
