When I began training and competing with my dog in agility, I made a rookie dog trainer mistake. I wasn’t consistent, and my dog was getting confused. One day, my trainer said,
“For a dog, one time means all the time. They will keep doing something new every time you let them do something new.”
As silly as it sounds, that came to mind a couple of weeks ago when my wife, a creature of routine and habit, did the same thing.
