1. Be positive! When starting your education program, think about what you want your dog to do, not what you want your dog to do more. If you focus on only one negative point, your program will not be pleasant for the dog, and its effectiveness will be limited.
2. Live in the moment! Regardless of what your dog could be as rubbish with you or its former owners if adopted, are leaving on good bases with him. Often, owners abandon the pretext that the animal has had a hard life and it is not useful to add. In fact, the dog likes to have a framework and feel satisfaction from its owners, what happens when behaves properly with respect to these expectations.

4. Frustrated with your lack of results? Just quit and try again later! When you are in education session with your dog, it may be that you feel the frustration because your dog does not necessarily react as you want from one session to another. This obviously depends on the desire of the moment but also your state of mind. If you reach this point of frustration at the end of the session and return to it later. It is best to complete the training on a positive note. No training is better than a bad training, both for you and your dog.

5. Dogs are not humans! If dogs could realize that some of us see them as human beings with a little more hair, they would probably be offended. What makes the dog so special is exactly what separates human beings. By humanizing we reduce and misunderstand certain behaviors causing a reaction from us inappropriate. Loving your dog is obviously a good thing, to love the right way by considering much like a dog with its peculiarities is better for both the one for the other.
6. Teach your dog! Your dog will let you know everything you need to know to help it maintain shape. For example, dogs who are constantly around the house need exercise, they are looking to spend. Dogs that exhibit neurotic behaviors (pinching, moan, nuisance barking, machouillage, etc.) are actually dogs that lack of stimulation and entertainment.
7. Do not respond to any situation! Dogs are creatures of habit. Their behavior is much more consistent predictable than ours. This can be an advantage when trying to educate but it can also be a disadvantage. When the dog does not behave the way you want, try ignorance. It does involve more or gesture to anger nor satisfaction from you and do not take the usual.
