Help Transforming your relationship with your dog
Jennifer Arnold of Modern Dog Magazine.com says:
We’ve operated under the assumption that a well-mannered dog is a happy, secure dog. But that’s backwards. In fact, a happy, secure dog becomes a well-mannered dog. We’ve been focusing on what a dog does rather than how a dog feels. When dogs feel secure and loved, problem behaviors are largely eliminated. The need for us to direct our dogs’ actions becomes dramatically reduced.
I was so moved by what I was witnessing that I was compelled to write a book, Love Is All You Need: The Revolutionary Bond-Based Approach to Educating Your Dog, outlining these principles, and now I want to spread the word. Here are seven key tips to get you started with bond-based teaching and transform your relationship with your dog!
Here are the tips!

- Look with eyes of love
- Help your dog learn to trust you
