My first dog, my blind dog. We love each other even though we don't always understand each other. Lok teaches me to accept and appreciate others for who they are. He gives me everything he has to give all the time. He makes me a better person.
Beauty AND brains all in one. Hearing is not required to take over the world and Jun prefers to be addressed as Goddess of the Universe. She is a workaholic, but also lazy, and prefers to do things the eas---I mean the "efficient" way. If dogs needed lawyers, Jun would be one. She will find the loophole in any rule. She keeps me on my toes. One is either training Jun or being trained by Jun (or both) ALL the time.
My tri-pawed cattle dog, who finally convinced me to let him stay. Definitely NOT a border collie. He is fiercely loyal and protective, affectionate and cuddly. He makes me happy and keeps me laughing all the time.
My Training Principles
Dog training is about building good habits and preventing bad habits.
Increase the rate of reward.
Make the dog successful.
Reward successive approximations.
The dog is never at fault for getting it wrong.
Don't train when you're not in the mood.
There are many different ways to train any behavior.
