Do you 'love' your dog?
It's good to love your dog. It's good for you and - sometimes - it's good for the dog. So what could possibly go wrong?
Love without understanding and respect can very quickly become abuse. Both ways.
Learn all you can about dogs and dog body language, communication, and behavior. Learn to love your dog as what he is: a dog. Only then can you can love your dog in a way that creates a peaceful, happy relationship and promotes trust and obedience when it matters most.
Who you are to your dog is everything …
