How Important is Training?
The Secret to a Good Dog
Niele is special because he is one of those dogs that was just good, right from the start. But he does have a stubborn streak. And, just like with any one who is stubborn, you need patience and out-of-the-box thinking to achieve your training goals.
I’ve trained horses for 25 years and now my own dogs for 8 years. Training is the basis for a loving, well-behaved, fun relationship between people and animals (and people and people for that matter). Each animal is unique, just like people, in how their learn and understand. So it’s important to be flexible, patient, firm and always try to figure out the best solution to the problem at hand.
But treats do help, especially for puggies (and horses!).
