Well, I can help you create a working bond between your canine friend and you. Dogs have had a working relationship with people since the first partnering millennia ago.
Believe it or not, dogs appear happier and are calmer when they are fulfilling their part of the relationship. However, they need to have that role defined for them. Left to their own devices, they will invent their own jobs and that can end in destructive behavior.
I personally find the sport of canine agility to be a wonderful "job" for the dog who needs something to do. Motivational agility training will strengthen the happy relationship you currently have with your animal by focusing your pet's desire to please you.
In the Citrus County area, I have both small group and private training programs available.
For the young dog, obedience training is made more stimulating by adding some beginning agility training to the mix. Sits and stays and comes are much more exciting when they are part of a circuit with jumps and tunnels and A-frames.
