Family dogs do best when they understand how everything in the home functions. How each family member interacts with them. What each family member accepts and doesn't accept in their interactions. How to have the best day in the home. And so on. Clarity matters.
How dog trainers view dogs has changed over time and so has our approach to dog training. Dog training used to be very harsh—today, it's much kinder. Some even argued that dogs don't have emotions—these days we know better.
