As a dog owner for life, I know the difference that like minded people can make. It’s the best way to learn new tricks, get motivated and have more fun. Now that we have internet, we can get together with more people and reap more benefits.
I still remember when I first found the solution to one of my dog problems online. I had a young Hovawart at the time, and he was trashing my furniture whenever I left the house. I tried all the methods I knew at that time, and read all the books our little village library had. But I couldn’t figure it out.
Then turned on my computer, got the modem working (it was the late eighties), and visited a dog website. Pure luck (there wasn’t a good search function) led me to the right article, and I managed to fix my problem.
It’s so exciting to have my own website now that I have the time and knowledge.
