So the winner of Crufts this year was Jilly, a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (no I hadn’t heard of it either) and one thing was for sure, if you have a black and white dog then you’re very on trend this year!
But it did get us talking about how we love to treat our pets like people and how our pets act like people.
In fact we found that the way in which you train a dog was very similar to the way in which you could train your husband.
Think of the amount of times you have to show men how to load the dishwasher properly and how often you have to remind them not to leave wet washing on the floor and compare that to the Dog Training Manual: He is always learning, and so you are always teaching.
You will need to enforce discipline and refresh the lessons that you teach him throughout his lifetime.
Isn’t that the truth!
And look how quick they both come when called when a treat is involved!
