Tip #6 – Your Dog Should See You As The Leader
Being a leader is not just about being dominant. It’s also about being protective and being the guardian of your furry friend. Use the “settle down” command to help your dog relax in any situation.It’s best to distract your dog as often as possible. You can do that by simply having him lay on a rug or in a dog bed and chew on a favorite toy or a bone.
That will keep him from wandering around with nothing to do and getting into trouble, as a result. That works well both when traveling and at home. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting the veterinarian or just trying to have a quiet family meal.
