Confidence is something that is achieved. We gain it as we are successful at each task we engage in. Having a dog and providing him or her with a good quality of life is empowering. Our parental instinct is harmonized from this process. Training and achieving desired results from your dog teaches us humans we can communicate our intentions without speaking!! A dog doesn’t understand a language until you teach him word by word. Your teachings have to start with gestures and limited vocals. The training success can instill confidence in our ability. As well as knowing you are your dog’s caretaker and you provide him with everything he needs to survive. Your reward is his love, devotion, and loyalty!! When you take this up a notch and get on an exercise program with your dog, the benefits will be magnified.
