Imagine you’ve just been transferred to a foreign country, and you’re really excited about it but you don’t know the language. Think of training as learning to speak ‘dog’. It’s as much for you as it is for them (some trainers say more so). Find a good trainer, take a class, and practice what you learn at home. It’s stimulating and fun for your dog, you’ll get the quick attention and response you need, and you’ll both be a lot happier.
