have found what’s needed to develop a great
relationship with your dog, a fellow pack animal.
Tools! Yes, tools. Not the type you buy from the
hardware store, but
knowledge tools. When you get a
new computer program, you need to know how to make
it work; when you get a dog, you need to know their
language so you can ask them to cooperate with you,
If your dog is showing symptoms of being “in
charge” such as:
Barging through doorways
Pulling on the leash
Then, it’s time to take back that role of
leader, but in a kind and respectful way.
You do not flex your muscles and “win” the
respect of your dog. Your dog will fear you,
not respect you,which can have serious consequences for both you and your dog.
