POSITIVE DOG TRAINING SERIES

DOG LOVERS SERIES
Why is it that so many of us choose to share our lives with dogs?
Dog hair floating in your coffee, the inevitable slob and dirt up the walls, carpets clogged with sand, having to pick up their poo…
To the uninitiated, this may seem like a lot of bother, but it is a small price to pay for the joy and companionship that dogs can offer us.
WELCOME TO SMARTDOGS!
Dogs accept us for who we are, warts and all. Always on hand to cheer us up when we are having a bad day, or comfort us when we are sad or ill. The void of language between our two species leaves space for a deeper connection.
Owning a dog should be a joy, and if we base our relationship on trust, consistency and a positive approach, we gain a devoted and loyal companion who brings something unique and rewarding into our lives.
If behaviour or training problems occur, dog ownership can become less than ideal, often resulting in stress for both parties. The good news is that the old adage: ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ is not actually true!
It is never too late to turn things around!
