Knowing to avoid no

brings forth a stern "Don't do this," "Don't do that," or "No, bad dog." Negative communications from you have a negative effect on your dog's motivation to work for you.

In dealing with your dog, ask yourself, "What exactly do I want Buddy to do or not to do?" Use a do command whenever possible so that you can praise your dog instead of reprimanding him. You'll notice a direct relationship between your dog's willingness to cooperate and your attitude. Get out of the blaming habit of assuming that Buddy's failure to respond is his fault. Your dog only does what comes naturally. More important, your dog's conduct is a direct reflection of your training. Train Buddy — in a positive way — what you expect from him, and more than likely he'll enthusiastically go along with the program.

Does this mean you can never use the "no" word? In an emergency, you do what you have to do. But, remember, only in dire need.
