Are you setting your dog up to fail?

This is something I see again and again. Owners asking their dogs to do something they aren't able to do.

Now don't get me wrong I am guilty of this too. I am far from perfect and this isn't about making people feel bad. This is about making you and your dog a closer knit team with a higher level of success.

So what am I talking about?

A perfect example is recall. The dogs are sniffing and into something and the owner calls them. Now, I can pretty much guarantee that the dog will not respond. If they do....well done you and DO NOT take that for granted because that is super hard for our dogs to do!
