Choosing the Right dog
Temperament vs Training
When an inexperienced person watches a “trained” dog perform the “come” command, it may appear to be very impressive.
However, what one should really observe, is if a dog is leash free, does he/ she have the tendency to hang out around the owner or to just bolt? The second half of this statement has to do with a dog’s genetic character, traits and tendencies.
All dogs can be “trained” to “come” but wouldn’t it be better to train a dog that already has the genetic tendency and character to want to hang around you when free?
The right training with the right temperament makes for a win-win situation.
