K9 Manners Class - Pre Course Reading

Pro Tips - The Secret to K9 Success!

Did you know? Calmness is a SKILL?  It's not an instinct.  It's also not an off or on switch your dog just can do on command if you haven't practiced and built their skill in it!

THE SECRET: Practice Calmness just like you would practice a Sit!

 You need to teach your dog and let them practice and build their SKILL of CALMNESS!

You want a dog that's calm in exciting situations right?

Well... then you have to practice it in boring, non-distracting, non-exciting situations first.

HUMAN EXAMPLE: You don't take someone who's never played football and put them in the Super Bowl expecting them to perfectly execute the advanced plays!
