Ten Commandments of Dog Training
(from a dog's side of things)
Do you already have a dog that you love but that you wished would fit in a little better with your lifestyle? Or perhaps you are about to get a new dog or puppy.What sort of relationship would you like to have with your new dog? What things would you like it to be able to do and what are the activities you would like to do with your dog?
This webinar asks questions about what we really want from our dogs, what we are prepared to give to them and how we want our lives to blend. Once the questions have been asked, we will get down to answering them with solid, practical, do-able tactics. Ten steps that you can take to help shape the dog you want in your life.
- To be able to decide exactly what it is you want in your dog;
- To understand that your dog has preferences too, and how the two of you can come to a happy understanding about any differences;
- To put your relationship with your dog in harmonious perspective with your life as you actually live it;
- To learn how to establish rules & guidelines for your dog, yourself, your family & friends;
- To be able to choose activities suitable for you & your family to do with your dog.
