Real life tests of off-leash reliability
 
Does your dog’s reaction toward bunnies or other animals appears so over-the-top that getting it under control seems about as possible as your one day walking on Mars? When I tell clients that it truly is possible to help our dogs learn to use self control and respond to us despite these monstrous distractions, some people look at me as if I have lost touch with reality. I understand that this possibility is difficult to imagine.

Does your dog trust you?
 
One of the biggest points I try to get across to people is that training dogs effectively is really about creating a partnership, learning to work together, and learning to communicate effectively with each other. It’s not about “teaching the dog who is boss” or establishing “dominance” because if that’s your main goal, you’ve already created a barrier to being successful with your dog. Or at least, being as successful as you could be. You might still train a dog to listen and do as told, but you won’t have the kind of relationship that some of us have with our dogs.

Burning off energy in the summer heat with your dogs
 
Most dogs are less energetic during the heat of the day – especially with our 100+ degree days lately. For those dogs, they are probably getting less exercise than normal. But they still need some exercise, which is best done early in the morning or later in the evening when it cools off.
