I guess that is why I never really got into training my dogs tricks. Most of the time I let them train me. I believe in letting them evolve and grow into who they want to be. Their true self. Not a performed monkey. There are no strings attached. We work together, through and through. They let me grow, change and fail, just as much as I let them. And don't get me wrong, people who can teach their dogs to do tricks are great. It's just not for me. Even when I'm doing behavioral training I don't "tell them what to do." They show me if they care or not, or whether they want to learn or not. It is all up to them. I am just a guide. Not even that really. More of a sounding board as they become who they are. And that's when it becomes more than a relationship, a spiritual crossing if you will. It isn't a matter of trying to talk to them, it is complete communication 24/7. We are one. The 24 Paws of Love are one.
