There’s an unhelpful amount of training advice thrown around.
Friends and family might give you their opinions (even when they’re not dog owners), while the internet is full of articles and YouTube videos with contradicting advice.
Some say use a pee pad... Some say pee pads are unhelpful
Some say to use punishments... Some say you only need rewards
Some say to use crates... Some say crates are cruel
They pick reasons out of the air for why their opinion is best, without any kind of backup or evidence.
As a dog owner it can become bewildering to know which advice to follow. Even if you choose a training method for barking that manages to work, you then need to start the research again for chewing.
After trying out a bunch of methods it can start to feel impossible, that maybe training your beloved pooch is just too big a challenge.
But we want to reassure you that’s not the case, it’s just that the industry is letting you down.
