Frustrating isn't it. If you have or have never seen this film. One of the most famous questions since the Big Bang Theory. Did Thelma and Louise make it or didn't they? I'm using this analogy to explain that this applies to Dog Training. If you don't commit to Training or keep up with it how can you ever know the true potential of your Dog? Any Dog Trainer can give you the tools to Train your Dog but only you can use them and keep up with them. Any man can be taught to fish. But certainly not in one session. Sure you can grasp the basics such as the clock analogy on how to cast off but what about the technique? What about how to successfully fish and catch a fish? Again this applies to Dog Training there are so many analogies I can use to demonstrate this.
Having a Dog is a commitment and if you want them to be trained and well behaved then this is also a commitment. Dog Trainers never ever stop learning. Dog owners can never ever stop learning. A Dog can never ever stop learning. But it's how you use the tools and whether you want to learn more about the tools which will determine the relationship with your Dog as well as their desired behaviour. After all a Dogs brain is that of a 2 year old infant. It's how you shape and influence that mind and brain in which you will see your wanted influence 🐶
