Here are those tips in text format for easy copy & paste (just be sure to credit us and the sources above):
LISTEN TO YOUR DOG - Learn the signs of discomfort, aggression, anxiety, playfulness, and more
BE GENEROUS WITH YOUR AFFECTION - Don’t just focus on the negative, be sure to have fun with your dog. Play with them, hug them, pet them, and make sure they know they’re a “good dog”
DOES THE DOG REALLY LIKE IT? Toys, treats, food, playtime, every dog is different. Don’t assume they like it just because the package or ad said they would. /span>
SAY YES NOT NO - INstead of telling the dog “no” instead tell them what they should do instead. Such as sit, stay, lay down, or something else instead of “no, dont do that”
BE CONSISTENT - Everyone in the house needs to send the same message. Whether it’s where the dog is allowed to go, what and when they eat, or any other routine. Dogs LOVE routine!
