If money, time, patience and reality were not issues, and you could travel with your dog to a super secret elite training facility for a two-week, intensive program guaranteed to achieve one specific result ... what would you choose to learn?
To help with the imagination, let's say this super secret training facility is in a tropical part of the world and you could leave tomorrow.
For 12-year-old Jack: Jack would attend de-yapping schooling. When he returned, he would never bark more than once, and a raised eyebrow from me at 50 yards away or less would stop him altogether.
For 3-year-old Eddie: He would go to an elite agility school, where he would conquer his fear of the banging teeter while developing a constant high level of enthusiasm for the tasks.
For 9-year-old Rusty: He would return with a perfect "stay" and a perfect "come."
