If you’re new to this blog, I’d suggest starting with the earliest posts and working your way forward. Most of what I wanted to say has already been said.
When I started this blog, I wanted to keep things simple, and give friends and acquaintances a short, easy method of starting to learn about modern developments in humane dog training: Developments which have made it possible to have dog training be fun for both you and your dog, rather than adversarial.
After I’d said most of the important stuff, it got to be not so short and not so easy, and it was never my intention to make this process self-perpetuating. If you’re new to this blog, I’d suggest starting with the earliest posts and working your way forward. Most of what I wanted to say has already been said.
If something important strikes me, I’ll write more posts. Otherwise, I urge you to check into some of the folks listed on the “resources” page, avoid fear and intimidation based methods, and concentrate on how to make your dog want to please you. That involves injecting as much fun as possible into your dog’s life, and having the dog associate that fun with you! Suki and I wish you and your dog all the best!
