When we take the time to train what we expect from our dog we teach them without pressure. When we have a clear goal in mind we are able to attain it better then scattered thoughts. Our dogs feel our vibes unsure or sure, tones I can hear or mumbling tones that mean nothing, do we make eye contact to help connect us when we need to or are we wishy washy in our communication? It is soooo valuable to train our dogs what we expect then they can surrender and just follow our lead. Why wait until you need your dog to be a certain way by then it is way too late. Usually there is pressure and you get embarrassed or use tones that sound alarm bells for your dog and life feels chaotic. Maybe you yank the leash or pull on your dog in a way that promotes fear and they look at you like what the heck! Dogs can't follow that it's not calm assertive.
