(We do this in order to set up situations to then correct and show dogs what is and isn’t acceptable behavior.)

Sometimes it’s just about being firm enough to be believed.

Posted on February 4th, by sean in Training Tips. No Comments

I know this is an unpopular topic with most dog owners, but over and over again we see dogs come to us with relatively simple issues that have spiraled due to the owners inability to say no (correct unwanted behavior) in a firm enough manner that the dog is motivated to stop the behavior.
