Why the Need For OBEDIENCE
Obedience is not done by using the power to restrain, force or control. The obedience we teach is how to achieve that willingness to work
for their handler. Training is done by using the intelligence of the dog.
In order to train a dog for obedience you will
first need to understand what is the meaning of obedience. Obedience is working as a team between the handler and the dog, done with trust and focus.
In order to achive this goal, you will have to know your dog, understand what drives your dogs, example, treats, praise, toys. Is your dog a soft dog, a hard dog, what are your dog's triggers.
