When your dog is resisting doing something you want her to do, do you think/say “she’s just being stubborn” or “she just doesn’t mind!” Well, if that’s the case, maybe what’s really happening is that you haven’t clearly communicated to your dog what it is that you want her to do. And have you made doing that a fun or rewarding behavior to do?
Check out this superb video example by Chirag Patel showing the difference that can happen when
- you are really clearly communicating what you want, and
- you make doing that enjoyable and rewarding.
