Think twice.

We have good days, we have bad days. When you find yourself in a bad mood - please don't train your dog. It's likely you will be less tolerant and more likely to get frustrated with your dog.

Keep a supply of stuffed frozen Kongs or a special Bully stick handy for times when you need to give your dog something to do while you have some alone time.

Interacting with your dog should never be a chore or done in anger. Step back from training and resume when you are in a better frame of mind.

Your dog will thank you.
