This simple command could help to boost your pooch’s health, flexibility and concentration too!
The PDSA is the UK’s leading vet charity. It has 48 Pet Hospitals and every year provides 2.7 million veterinary treatments – including 440,000 preventative treatments.
I’ve never understood that ….
I fully understand the need for training – and to teach the dog a few simple, necessary commands, such as “Here” “Wait/Stay” “Leave it”.
The rest, I see as an urge on the part of the human to needlessly control an animal. There’s no point at all in the dog ‘giving the paw’ – just human power games.
