Pupdate - Mako
Mako is very food motivated, so teaching him to Wait for it took a little while, as did waiting at the door, but he eventually got it. We also taught him to Stay as people walked away and things happened around him. Good job, Mako!

I hate to see dogs getting hurt by their handlers. I feel they don't deserve it. They are such gentle creatures and if you are just going to shout at them and make them look and feel stupid they you shouldn't get a dog anymore. I know some people think it's an exaggeration to treat dogs like babies but really they are like that, just babies. They won't bite unless they are scared so it's up fo us to teach them not to get scared. If there are children in the house, make sure they don't bother the dogs. I hate when they blame the dog for misbehaving when it was children who have provoked them. It's so frustrating. I have three very gentle dogs and I don't have a home for them. It's really sad. I wish they are here with me but I don't have my own house.
