Hard Work

Anyone who says that good dog training isn't hard work hasn't ever trained a dog to do any kind of meaningful obedience. It takes time, discipline to be consistent, close observation, motivation, study, thoughtfulness, sensitivity, self control, patience and wisdom. None of that comes from reading a book, doing some quick fix with an electric collar, or going to a few classes at a local pet store.

I agree I am a dog trainer in Florida, the quick fix electric method is BS, it does take time, patience, and a consistent firm method to get a dog to accomplish the task. As well 99% of the time the dog is fine, the owner is a mess..
