In order to get the most out of this class, here are a couple pointers.
We will discuss this in more detail later, but you should already start to make plans on how you can keep your dog from crossing his threshold and “going crazy”.

Make training a part of daily life.
Reward yourself with something fun after a week of consistent training, for example:
Whatever it is that you enjoy and that motivates you – you can trick your brain into liking the habit of training more by using it as a reward for yourself 🙂
