Creating positive associations

Nap Times

Like someone refilling your wine glass - someone adding to the bowl will generally get a better greeting than taking it away.

Gentle stroking, not crowding the puppy and adult supervision.  Its a must when rearing a puppy to be calm and gentle

This gentle dog is very compliant about taking a walk on leash.  Is your leash invisible?

Keeping an eye on these two tired youngsters.  Some times laying together with a friend is all we need...

Raising a sound pup for ready for exploration

When there is fear in an approach to your dog its nice if the dog stays still because it is feels safe and comfortable.

Once a bond starts forms your dog will care about your feelings

Quality time together is friendship

Easy living

Why should I?

We all need someone to teach us before we can be expected to understand and follow the rules

Teaching and learning take time and patience.  In the beginning we need to establish a plan about how and what we are going to teach.

Setting Boundaries leads to easy living later on!

It doesn't matter what we teach...we are all capable of learning if we receive a reward for putting in the effort.
