When you are looking to set yourself and your pet up for success in training, here are a few questions to ask yourself.
Can your dog reliably predict only good things will happen if he comes to you when you call him?
Am I providing my pet enough opportunities to exercise his mind and body?
Am I clear in knowing what behavior I want my pet to do?
Am I teaching my pet in an environment and at a time where he can focus?
Do I make learning fun for my pet?
