What does love mean to your dog?
An extra helping of food
Keeping a healthy weight and a long walk in a new place
Another new toy to play with by himself
A game with him and you with the old toy
Being kept on the lead because he won’t return to you
Teaching recall so he can have freedom to enjoy running
Being protective with other dogs and not letting him mix
Teaching him to socialise with his own kind
Pamper and give in to his every demand
Giving him correction and reward at the right times, affection for the right reason, thereby creating respect
The above will result in either:
Behavioural Problems, Health Problems, Anxiety and Stress for you both
Authority, Respect and Happiness for you and him
Between a millionaire’s dog and a street person’s dog it is usually the latter whose dog is the happiest and most balanced. Your dog doesn’t care what he looks like or whether he has the most expensive toys on the market; he does care that he gets the right food, exercise, health care and training.
