Puppy Myth Buster #3

Puppy-Myth-Busters_03

Answer: False

Most of the behaviors that we want from our dogs are unnatural for them. Food is a motivator. It is payment for a job well done. There are things everywhere that the puppy and adult dog are going to deem more interesting than you. We need to give them a reason to want to pay attention and work with us. Would you work for free? Probably not, so why should your dog. Food is one of the most potent motivators for animals and since they won’t accept cash, teach your puppy using food.

Daisy goes to City Hall

“She’s a Shiatsu. Her name is Daisy and she’s 5 years old. I got her when she was a year an a half old. Once this woman thought it was cruel that she rode in my bike basket, so she snatched her away from me. I had to go to the Humane Society and pay to get her back.

She attacks people and dogs. She keeps me safe. It’s all about how you approach her. Everyone loves her.”
