I don’t have much in the way of training because I was young when I got my dog. But we got her before my birthday party. I think I was maybe 6 or 7. My parents had me open a present and inside was dog food and a stuffed dog. It didn’t dawn on me why they were giving me that and I didn’t realize at all until we got to the humane society. We looked at the dogs and my mind was stuck on my dog. We took her to a room to get to know her and I knew I wanted her. I named her Misty after a Pokémon character. Then they gave her a leash and collar and since she was a runt and so tiny her only option was a green one. We took her home and she was in my life until my sophomore year of high school.

Let it come and let it be...

I have never done a ton of training but if I get a dog in the future I would.

I think this article would help to an extent. I know my dad did a lot of our older dogs training from books so i think this article could help a fair few people get started with training.

For obvious reasons I didn't learn anything new from reading this article, but I figured I'd answer your other questions.

I definitely do remember the first time I met my dog. She was about four months old, and I went to the pound to pick out my first dog. She was the only puppy there, and she was adorable. I took her home for a trial, during which she made a nuisance of herself - she'd nip us, chase the cats, chew everything in sight. But we kept her for the weekend, and I fell in love. As such I never even thought about taking her back.

One of the most important things I've learned while training her is to go in with a plan, but always be ready to adjust it. Sometimes if I'm trying to teach her something, it just doesn't work (usually with more complex skills that have to be caught in smaller steps, like teaching her to turn on a light). In that case I have to take a step back and ask myself Why isn't this working? Usually it's a fairly obvious cause, like I'm asking too much of her or I'm not breaking it down into small enough steps. Once I've identified that, I can adjust the plan accordingly and allow us to move forward. So if you're trying to train your dog and you're finding that they're not learning the way you'd hoped, don't be scared to take a break, think about the issue, and change your approach so that it does work.

if you know the hunter's coming
then you hide or keep on running
'cause she's slain the gods before.

Thanks for sharing! I like these hints!

I always considered that dogs and horses are the most human animals! We are responsible for those who are tamed.
