Training in a “Twitter” World

How many pieces of electronics are attached to your body?  How many computers, cell phones, Blackberries, iPhones and more do you own?  Can we ever get away from people?  Do you ever take a walk with your dog and not have your phone with you?  If not, then how do we train our dogs?

This is a complaint that I hear trainers talk about all the time.  “I cannot get compliance from my client since they don’t have time to practice.”  Sound familiar?  Well, believe it or not, I don’t have time either!  Here are a few tips that I give trainers so you will have a better chance succeeding.  Trainers forget that the average pet owner is not a professional dog trainer and the tips they may be giving you are not always practical.  Listen and find out what trainers are saying and how you can help them achieve success by explaining to them what you really need!
