When it comes to dog training, the most important lessons we all should learn is the following:
- DOGS ARE NOT HUMAN
- DOGS ARE A DIFFERENT SPECIES
- DOGS THINK AND ACT DIFFERENTLY THAN HUMANS
It sounds straightforward but it is often difficult to retain this knowledge, especially when our pups exhibit human-like behavior. But The fact is, as much as we want to think of our dogs as a regular member of our family, they listen, learn, and communicate very differently. As a result, many human owners fail to bridge that communication gap and end up with a dog with problem behaviors. By the time dog owners contact trainers, most are at their wits’ end with their dog’s behavior.
Almost always, a dog can become a well-adjusted, well-behaved, happy canine with the right training. Whether your dog just needs basic training or some type of behavioral adjustment, we first need to perform an assessment of the dog.
