Themes this Week:

1) Puppies. House training. When the puppies have been in the home for 2+ months already. "He's getting better" isn't good enough, this should have been done months ago.

2) Puppies biting and tugging on the leash. Please stop moving. Please be quiet. Please hold still.

3) Adult dogs with poor attention. Please use high value reinforcers. And don't miss those ten times where your dog just looked at you.

4) Lots and lots of brand new dog owners. These people are fun because they don't have silly preconceived ideas about how they've raised dogs before. But they also can get distressed or emphasize little things that don't need as much attention.
