I found when I asked for more from my dog, I got more from my dog...and the respect came along with it.
Structure is necessary and usually structured environments contain some rules.
I was told this past weekend that when we give corrections, we should also give praise in the same measurement or more. Praise is so important, and if we are just correcting, but not praising, thats when conflict comes into the picture. Black and white is what dogs want, not grey!
