This Interview with Bo Obama’s trainer was great. I found myself nodding in agreement with most of her statements. It’s worth a read, and it can also give you a good idea of my methodologies. I was impressed by how her answers were so similar to what I would have said.
Â “I donâ€™t like to use labels because once you put a label on a dog, people emphasize the negative for some reason. Itâ€™s the way we were raised: â€œHow can I fix this problem.â€ I donâ€™t think itâ€™s a matter of correcting it; itâ€™s a matter of replacing it with something else incompatible with what they want to doâ€”something desirable. People get focused on what the dog is doing wrong rather than paying attention to what they want the dog to do instead.”
