My husband constantly reminds me "they are animals, they are dogs, they have animal instincts and can't always be predictable." But, like Ann, I actually think kids ARE harder! I only feel guilty with my dogs when I neglect to give attention, exercise, or skip the grooming. The training is great, and I think it increases the bond, but the only reason I am working on it in classes is to try therapy work. Otherwise I would probably just still be doing the lame training I learned with our first dog which was basically sit, NO, come, wait, stay and down! Oh yes, and shake!! And speak!! Or QUIET!! Just the basic stuff.
And Missy, one of my favorite videos is the dogs attacking the mail. They must think it is an intruder?!?
