When Augie was small, he refused to be held for any length of time. Now he loves to crawl on our laps and be held while he naps. I think training DOES make a positive impact on your relationship with your pup. I certainly noticed that with Augie. It is still harder for me to get his attention and to maintain it than it is with Finn, even though I have been working with Augie a lot longer. If there is something that is very interesting to Augie, like smells, I can't get his attention very easily at all. Finn may be my big stinker, but he is definitely easier to work with. He communicates like a little human.
