A dog whose needs aren’t being met mentally and physically will be difficult to manage. No two dogs are the same. By explaining how dogs think and learn, along with realistic expectations, the dog learns that “if I do x, I get y”. The dog knowing that, is a powerful training technique.
The proper approach to training can address any specific behavioral issues you may be having with your dog. The work owners put in now is worth a lifetime of good behavior. The most rewarding part of being a behaviorist/trainer is being able to help owners bring out the best in their dog (and other animals).It’s very satisfying to watch them grow and reach their potential.
