Your Dog’s Breed by Kelly Murrell

There’s a lot of thinking out there that dogs of a certain breed need a certain method of training, or perhaps special consideration, or even a reason as to why some things just won’t work for them.

With concept based training, we certainly do take the breed into account, but like with all dogs, we work out what concepts need enhancing and which games will help to grow those concepts.

Here’s the thing though, we don’t change the WAY we train due to the breed

We also consider the dog as an individual, as even though breed traits can be very prevalent in a dog, within each breed, each dog has their own personality.

So, the take away message from this is to certainly consider the breed of dog you own, but consider more their individual personality and know that with every training struggle there really is a game that!
