Principles of Dog Training

In the course of our training, I've picked up a few helpful hints to guide Bady and I along the way. They seem like common sense, for the most part, but it is important to be reminded. It is easy to forget when caught up in the heat of the moment!

~ Don't get frustrated.
~ Be consistent.
~ Don't reward bad behavior.
~ In the face of bad behavior, say no in a consistent, firm tone.
~ The higher the distraction, the less learning takes place
~ Live in the moment.

I wonder if these principles could be applied to other areas of life?? Church life, maybe? :>)
