Who Influences Your Dog’s Behavior?
You think you’re a great dog trainer. Maybe you are, maybe you’re not. Either way, chances are you’re not the only person your dog has contact with throughout the day and those people can have just as much influence on your dog’s behavior as you.
Take for instance this video my girlfriend passed along of my dog, Beau. She sees an 11 month old puppy having fun; I see a dog that is learning to tear up birds and not deliver a dummy to hand (insert long drawn out sigh here). In her defense it is pretty darn cute and I’m sure Beau is as stir crazy as I am to see a single blade of grass. But nonetheless, I’m sure our retrieving session this weekend will be an interesting one.
Would training your dog and spending time with your best friend be as fun and gratifying if it were easy? Probably not, but I wouldn’t complain if they came with an owner’s manual.
