Alex, “Moms, this feels good!”

When a dog gets sufficient mental and physical stimulation, she will be well behaved and balanced.  The majority of the “issues” pet parents encounter with their canine companions is due to a lack or inappropriate amount of mental and physical activity.

    We do agility. She loves it and is super fast. Now we just need to coordinate so she doesn’t play choose your own course. 😉

      Excellent on the agility. Figure out what she likes best, treats, toys, etc., and once you want her to stop – whether she is working on agility or anything else – you’ll get her to stop by giving her what she likes most. With lots of repetition and patience, your furry kid will stop when you ask her too. Keep up the good work!
