5 Rules that Make a Happy Dog

1 comment

1. Rules
Here is something you probably never considered:  When you let your dog up on the couch you are actually causing mental stress.  Here is the thing, dog need rules.  The rules give them balance and provide a framework for life.  If you tell let them up on the couch one day and refuse the next, the dog becomes very confused.  This goes for table scraps as well.  If you give them scraps one day and then yell at them for hanging out around the table the next day, your dog becomes very confused. 

Pick a set of rules and stick to them.  Your dog will be happier if they actually understand how you want them to act.
