His dog Penny Lane will surely impress you with her long list of tricks.
Tim says,“Reward-based training is the most effective way to teach any dog a behavior or help tackle any undesired behavior. It is also the most humane and compassionate way to train your dog. It’s about building confidence and trust between human and canine. Remember, they might only be there for part of your life but to them you are their whole life!"
