Good Manners Matter
Teaching your dog good manners will be the foundation for a long, devoted relationship.
Just consistently putting in fifteen minutes, twice a day can produce good results. Your dogs attention span will not stretch far beyond that amount of time. Working on such basic skills
like sit, stay, come, and down will produce good manners and establish a happy relationship. These skills
are best learned before any tricks. Some dogs will be fast learners, others not so fast, but patience and consistency will get results.
Find the tone of voice that works best with your dog. Thinking it's play time, some dogs will become too excitable if you use a high pitched voice. A calm, assertive voice may work better.
Be patient, and enjoy these sessions and the results will be worth it.
