Did you know that there is a TV show that can help you get better dog training results?
This show was popular for years and the writers had one big rule for the show. The rule was:
No hugging, no learning.
Have you figured out what the show is yet?
If you know me, you probably know that the show I am talking about is Seinfeld.
So why would a show that had a rule about no hugging and no learning be good for dog training.
Because as the great Zig Ziglar said:
“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”
You don’t have to be the smartest, greatest, sharpest dog trainer in the world – I’m not.
BUT – I do go into training sessions with a great attitude. Every class I ever taught was with a positive, upbeat, fun attitude.
If I wasn’t feeling positive, I canceled the class. You see, I learned that at Disney World they have a “No Bad Days” policy.
An employee having a bad day at Disney could severely affect the experience of someone visiting the park.
Seinfeld makes me laugh and helps me drop any stress or pressure I may have felt during the day and puts me in the right frame of mind for dog training.
And believe me friend, dog training is all about attitude.
Approach it as something fun to do and your dog will learn fast.
Approach it with dread or as a chore and you’ll probably give up.
So make sure you are in the right frame a mind as you go to do your next training session.
All the best,
