I knew that training took time, so I left extra time in my schedule to train him. Instead of rushing to leave the park when it was time to go, I left extra time to train him. Knowing that I […]

Once your dog is obedient you will no longer need to use the clicker. 2.) Reward-based dog training only works for certain dogs and […]
