    May I say, I fell in love with this article so much! I love how you’ve expounded the importance of the 3D’s in effectively training dogs. Distance is very important because I think most people, especially new dog parents, forget that untrained dogs are not yet used to certain commands. So, it is our duty to slowly train them and make them get used to it and of course, build trust (not terror). I’ve been guilty of this too when I was little. I had my first puppy when I was 5 and been joining competitions since I was 10. It may be extreme to some but since I was very passionate about my pets, I’ve got myself educated and trained. https://www.animaljobsdirect.com
