Dogs thrive and have maximum achievement when they are part of a consistent and moderate relationship with their handler. If you, as the handler, desire the best results from your dog, you must discipline yourself to provide what your dog needs most. But there is always a moral conviction that underlies every outward decision. If you have a confused set of morals and ethics, you will find that you also have a confused and inconsistent set of actions. “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:8
Each of us should carefully evaluate what we believe and why. Each of us should try to discover those areas where we are inconsistent, then we should strive to correct them.
Not only will your family and friends respect you more, but you will see your dog’s performance increase to the degree that you are successful. Remember that the dog always reflects the handler.
