My human and I live in Australia and she is currently finishing high school!! My mom does a great job putting up with my stubbornness and crankiness but she knows that I love her underneath all of that.

Thorough dog obedience training is two-fold. Not only is the dog acquiring a practical skill, but she is also cultivating permanent qualities of character. For example, training your dog to walk in heel not only teaches the mechanics of the skill, but also develops awareness, impulse control, and self-discipline, all of which are character traits necessary for a balanced state of mind.
Awareness: When a dog learns to stay at her handler’s side on a loose leash, she is practicing attentiveness to her handler’s position. ⠀
Impulse Control: There a bazillion things a dog is interested in sniffing or scoping out when on our walks. When she learns to restrain herself and maintain that obedient position thereby controlling her impulses, she is cultivating a balanced state of mind. ⠀
Self-discipline: a dog must learn to restrain herself in order to avoid an uncomfortable consequence. This teaches her that SHE is responsible for her own level of comfort. ⠀
All of these character traits, when practiced and fully developed, will seep into just about every other aspect of the dogs capacity for controlling their emotions during stressful situations. It is important to not only train mechanics, but also train for state of mind and character development.
Happy Tails! 🐶🐾
