Dogs want to please you and love you. It’s what they live for. With their sensitive noses, they smell everything, but their favorite smell is human. And the very best smell of all is their human. A well-trained dog will bring more joy, laughter, security and love into your life than practically anything else.
How many times have we heard stories of a dog that saved someone from a dangerous situation? Or of dogs that have traveled many, many miles to get back to their home and their human? You, dear pet owner, are their entire life. Pleasing you is what they want, but they don’t always know how if you don’t teach them.
A rambunctious puppy can drive you crazy. They chew on your stuff, jump on you, steal pizza off of your plate, run out the door uninvited, and other frustrating behaviors. Yelling at them or throwing them outside does no good if they don’t understand why you are upset. They have to be taught what is acceptable and what is not, and there are gentle, loving ways to do that. They have to be taught to listen and to obey your commands. That takes time, patience, and know- how, but the rewards far outweigh the sacrifice and will last all the years of your dog’s life.
