Join Kayla, Ursa, and Marissa as they discuss some common myths about how dogs behave and how best to train them.
The myths we discuss today include:
- Tail wags = happy dogs
- You can’t train XYZ breed to do ABC thing
- Exposure will make things better (Kayla’s blog on the topic is here)
- My dog can tell if someone’s untrustworthy
- Reactivity is a dog being protective
- Dogs behave out of spite
