The trick is to enjoy life. And it’s so much easier when you have a dog with you!
We love to learn new things, track our progress in what’s important to us, interact with other people, and get great feedback on our hard work. Just like people, dogs have the same needs. Dogs are intelligent, and not only do they love to learn, but they need to think about and solve challenges as they did when it was all about getting water and food.
Your dog is just waiting to have some quality time with you, so what are you waiting for?
Don’t believe everything you hear – even old dogs can learn new tricks! That just shows that we always need to fit the trick to the dog’s abilities, age, breed, motivation and experience.
Teaching your dog some tricks benefits everyone involved! You get some time off the routine schedule of the day, and he gets attention, affection, and a happy, balanced life.
In addition, when you teach your dog some tricks, you reap so many benefits as a dog owner. In just a few minutes a day (or more, depending on how much fun you want to have!) you get everything you, as a dog owner, desire: focus, better obedience, a better connection and communication, and a great workout!
When you teach your dog tricks, it causes positive, fun vibes for both of you! But I do have to warn you: once you start, you can never stop!
