Acting kind, gentle, and generous towards all living creatures.
Being kind means feeling empathy and compassion for another. When we feel empathy, we know how to make our dogs feel good by feeding them when they're hungry, giving them water when they 're thirsty, or leaving them alone when you are tired.
A gentle person is careful never to hurt a dog. Gentle people learn to hold dogs so they feel safe and comfortable. Gentle people teach dogs with encouraging words, and lots of hugs. Gentle people don't yell at their dogs, hit them, or handle them roughly.
Generous people give time, money and love to others. They take time to walk their dogs, play with their dogs, and pet their dogs. Generous people will give up TV time to be with their dogs. Generous people will spend the money that is necessary to keep their dogs healthy and happy.
Treating your puppy or dog with respect and kindness is the best way to teach your dog trust!
