Potty Training Your Dog – A Really Great Tip

I was at a follow-up Home Dog Training session in Davie with a client and his puppy Fox Terrier named Delilah.  Delilah was sixteen weeks old and things were progressing rather well.  We had resolved some separation anxiety issues as well as building a strong and healthy bond between her and the family.  Her standard obedience commands were progressing well and she could come to my client from across the family room with very little...
