Firm, but gentle. Demanding, but passionate. Sincere. If we were asked to describe the trainer we selected for our 11 month, work-in-progress, rescue named Harley, then these are the first thoughts that come to mind.

TRAINING TIPS

  • Training must be FUN in order for your dog to learn.
  • Training is not hard; it just takes time, patience, consistency and persistence.
  • Training is not a spectator sport. You must participate to achieve.
  • Training is a lifelong process. If you stop practicing with your pet , he or she will forget.
  • Training should be interesting. Continue to teach new tricks, play new games and practice commands in new places.
