“The answer to confusion is always no.”
When the author Donald Miller wrote that statement he was talking about communication between people. But Miller is also a proud dog lover. So I bet he’d approve of expanding it to include our dogs.
Here’s what I mean by that.
Dogs get confused when people aren’t clear. We humans often suffer from the illusion that more is better. We pile on words, words, words when the dog still hasn’t figured out what we said first.
Information overload leads to a shutdown. The answer to confusion is always no.
I have good news for you, though! You can turn your dog’s confused no into a joyful yes. More easily than you imagined!
What does this mean for you? It means that you no longer have to feel frustrated because you believe that your dog “won’t listen to you”. Even more, it means that you can actually make your aspiration for a cooperative dog a reality. And you can do that sooner rather than later.
Join me starting Monday and find out how simple it can be to change your dog’s no into yes!
