Training Tip Tuesday – Your Dog is Having a Hard Time
TRAINING TIP TUESDAY – YOUR DOG ISN’T GIVING YOU A HARD TIME. YOUR DOG IS HAVING A HARD TIME.

The Volunteer Trainers at Ruff Start Rescue have started a new initiative to post a quick and easy tip every Tuesday! Look for a new tip every Tuesday or use the hashtag #TrainingTipTuesday on social media to find them all!
#TrainingTipTuesday with a twist!
You know when you are shopping or out to eat and you see or hear a young child having a meltdown? We know young children don’t know how to effectively communicate or understand why they feel the way they do and dogs are the same!
Sometimes we can’t fix issues with our dogs or fosters but we can manage them and they can still live a fun and happy life, it just may look a bit different. A dog trainer I used for a reactive dog I owned told me once and I never forgot it….”You only get one perfect dog in your lifetime and don’t compare that dog to the others that come through your home”
