Fannie Common Questions
Relationship Building

Dog training has two components: the relationship you and your dog develop and the nuts and bolts of training. Once your dog understands what you want, he must have enough allegiance to you to do it in all situations. Allegiance is the ultimate outcome of creating a leader-follower relationship. Dogs are either leaders or followers. In order to have a successful, healthy relationship with a human, a dog must be the follower. You can capitalize on what is essential to dogs and use this information to become a stronger leader.
