Training your dog is no easy task for the impatient and grumpy.
Training your dog is like training a 4-month year old that never seems to mature with age.
If dogs could only speak English, life would be so much easier for a pet owner.
Since this is unrealistic, we are forced to face the ugly truth, which is that dogs will be dogs.
Dogs are not only messy, stinky, and rowdy, they actually do have some unique benefits including love, care, loyalty and company.
If you can get past the anger and resentment that sometimes is associated with the dog mistaking your couch for his bone, then you can really start to love your dog.
With any thing in life communication is key, and you have to figure out how to communicate with your pet.
Learning how to communicate with your pet will certainly take time, just as it did when you learned to talk and form sentences when you were young.
Its important that you take a motherly role as your dog begins to understand how you communicate.
There are several good books out there that focus on how you can communicate better with your animal.
If you have the time this can be a great avenue and bonding experience for you and the animal.
If time is money and you never have enough of the green backs, you may want to think of a dog trainer instead of reading and doing all of the training yourself.
A dog trainer is an expert on training and developing obedient dogs for their owners.
They will charge a premium for their services but if it saves you time, stress, and headaches, it may be worth the extra change.
The key is developing that communication.
Once you conquer that barrier the training becomes much easier for the both of you.
You will soon see your dog actually doing things that you told it too.
