I have been thinking this week about my basic beliefs as a dog trainer and I want to share some with you:
- Every dog, person and situation is different.
- Treat the dog and AND the people in a kind way.
- Try to have more than one (or two or three!) training strategies for any situation.
- Teach people how canines communicate; it’s a rich language worth knowing.
- Be honest and have the difficult conversations.
- Deliver excellent customer service.
That’s pretty much it; the YAYDog! core.
