Hierarchy of Dog Needs® by Linda Michaels MA
Just as it is for humans, respecting an animal’s basic physiological and emotional needs is the key to developing a positive relationship with them. Without this mutual respect the animal will do what is necessary to meet their needs.
If the human can meet these needs and develop a relationship with their pet their lives together will be a collection of positive and happy experiences. The positive rewards training I offer builds on and strengthens your relationship with your pet for years to come.
