What you dog wants you to know

Julie talks to Helen St. Pierre of No Monkey Business Dog Training about things your dogs wishes you knew. We all want our dogs to be happy, but it can be difficult to know what will achieve that. Dog Trainer Helen talks about what is important to your dog. She also has some quick, easy suggestions for ways you can improve your dog's quality of life.

Helen maintains that dogs need time and space to be allowed to dog and dig. She also advises kind methods, and that although basic training is useful, there are far more useful activities. Plus you can turn the daily walkies into a more meaningful experience, and you can change the way you present your dog's food to enhance the experience.
