My first terrier is a “trainer’s dog”. That means she came with a lot of stuff to figure out.
In a few short years Bossy taught me more about myself than nearly half a century of living, twenty-five years in business and two decades of marriage. She gave me lots of incentive. She’s lightening fast, super assertive and downright tireless. With a strong prey drive and bite force that’s roughly three times what I could lay on a piece of raw hide, I had to learn. There was no overpowering or wearing out this pup.
I needed to figure out her heart and mind.
Bossy is a good dog. And I’m not such a bad human. Together, we’re better. It’s true: the teacher will appear when the student is ready. Follow our story and what we’ve learned. And meet my other pup, Bark, along the way. We’ll all be blogging.
