Top Training Tip #1

Work With Mother Nature

Trying to impose your will unto a dog will most likely leave you frustrated and the dog confused and potentially unsure of the handler.  A much more effective approach to creating your desired behaviors in your dog will be to utilize their natural instincts and their style of communication, not yours.

Superior Intelligence

While dog's may possess many qualities that could be deemed as "better" than humans, intelligence is not one of them.  Our ability to think ahead, plan, manipulate, reflect, coordinate, etc... gives us a major upper hand when training a dog.  Go into your training sessions, daily routines, or dog ownership in general with a well thought out plan and you'd be amazed at how you're able to achieve what you set out to accomplish.

Bond With The Dog
