UNTIL WE TRULY UNDERSTAND HOW TO COMMUNICATE WHAT IT IS WE WANT FROM OUR DOGS WE CAN’T BE COMPETENT LEADERS.
Yes, it’s convenient to ask our pups to sit or stay when we need them to. But ultimately, we train for the wellness and welfare of our dogs. To do so, we must be able to communicate to our dogs what we expect, and the boundaries we have set for them. By establishing a line of communication and a mutual trust that is understood by both dog and human alike, we are able to maneuver through any situation with our companion. A bond develops between dog and dog owner through proper training, a bond that can’t be broken.
