There is a lot to absorb when you embark on this joyful adventure. Always be sure that you are having fun. By communicating with your dog and teaching her to accomplish certain actions when needed, you can establish a wonderful structure for your relationship. It should be an inspiring and deeply rewarding experience for both of you. Keep your praise abundant and your energy high while you are both learning.

The less you talk the more your dog will listen!
