Hartford Day 1

Today was the first of 2 days at the Hartford Pet Show....we are having a great time....meeting some great people and there is lots of dogs walking around...the issue is that I have not seen one dog that was trained walking around..I am so surprised that people bring there dogs out and public and not only are they not trained or well behaved the people don't even try to train them...there was one HUGE great dane..easily over 200lbs and was at the end of a 6 foot leash going totally out of control while  the owner was not even paying attention to the dog...when you have a dog that big you need to keep it out of control...every dog that we saw was pulling its owner around...it confuses me, and our dogs were in downstays or place the whole time and people think it is amazing....





This should be the default behavior with your dogs......



Kishmish did great today with all of the people and distractions...




all of the dogs had lots of distractions and did incredibly well with all of their commands


I talked to hundreds of dog owners today and I saw hundreds more dogs walking around today...and not one of those dogs could be trained with hugs, kisses, affection, vegan diets, swarovski crystal collars, 300 dollar beds or anything monetary...exercise, training, strutcure is the answer
