There is an old saying that goes something like, “A good craftsman never blames his tools.” Likewise, it’s important that we never give credit to our tools for good work either. Dog training is an interactive process and as your dog’s trainer, you are responsible for creating a good relationship in which your dog can learn. Choose your tools wisely and learn to use them well!
A transcript of the main text of A Dog Trainer’s Tools is available at the Life As A Human online magazine website. You can visit Life as a Human to find this and other articles.
