Words of Woofdom – The Perfect Dog
Picture the perfect dog. What does this look like for you? How does this picture compare to your dog now? Now I want you to think about a human you know who is perfect. Do you know one? I did not think so. Then why do we expect our dogs to be perfect?
If what you are looking for is more like a robot, perhaps a dog may not be what you want. All dogs, just like humans, are individuals. Dogs are living-breathing animals with thoughts and feelings, that will not always do everything we want, exactly when we want it. Don’t get me wrong, training a dog is immensely important and extremely rewarding but we must look at what they want as well. Having a well-behaved and mannered dog is a very different thing from having a “perfect” dog. Having realistic expectations can make all the difference. I must admit, I think I have the perfect dog… for me.
To help you get closer to your ideal dog, we have group classes to fit your needs. If more personalized attention is what you want, we can come to you for a private, one-on-one session. There is no place like home. In-home training allows the Canine Behavior Consultants to observe your dog in their natural environment and cater to your specific needs. Training comes easier to a dog that does not have distractions and is in the comfort of their own home. Let us come to you to help you have a better relationship with your Canine Companion.
