I wish there was one special quick to read book that told all the secrets that it takes dog trainers years to learn, and no I've not learned them all yet. A store place of knowledge that tells us, humans, all the things we need to do in order to make our dogs happy, lazy (and by lazy I mean tired on a regular basis), and well-behaved pups. Sadly there is not, maybe I'll write some of it one day, but for today I just want to talk about a few of the things that we SHOULD be doing on a regular basis for our pups.
Our dogs need a stable environment with boundaries and rules that they need to follow. It makes their lives much easier. If we as humans didn't have any rules or Laws that we needed to live our lives by, think of how much chaos we would be in. Those boundaries should only be things to help improve their behavior.
