  1. So true! So often, we ignore our dogs when they are good, and then we scold them when they are "bad." At least, I know I am guilty with this. I have to make a point to remind myself to reward my dog when he does the behaviors I want such as going to his bed automatically when we eat vs. begging.

    1. For some reason that how humans are programmed. Not only when it comes to dogs, when it comes to anything. The "good" is supposed to happen and it's taken for granted, only the bad gets a reaction.
