Do you know what the “Bond Bank” is?
It is extremely important to understand this.
Let me splain:
As you develop the relationship with your dog, it is often referred to as the bond you have with your dog.
The relationship between you and your dog works like a bank account.
When you do something good and fun with your dog, you make a deposit in the Bond Bank.
When you do something negative, like punish or yell at your dog, you are making a withdrawal from the Bond Bank.
In order for the relationship between you and your dog to be good and healthy, there have to be WAY more
deposits than withdrawals.
There are a lot of dogs with problems in this country BECAUSE a lot of training is done with negative
When there are more deposits in the Bond Bank, an occasional withdrawal won’t harm the relationship and won’t push your dog to the dark side. Too many withdrawals, and major behavior problems can develop. Aggression being the biggest one.
When it comes to obedience, you HAVE to have a lot of deposits in the Bond Bank, especially when it comes to the come when called command. Think about a dog that has been punished over and over. Think that dog is going to get excited and race back to the owner when he calls, “Come”?
Start making deposits in your dog’s Bond Bank today and watch the difference in your dog’s training.
