If you want a well-trained dog, you might need to work on yourself first


If your puppies keep flunking obedience school, maybe it’s time to look in the mirror.

Some researchers and trainers say better trained humans are the key to better trained dogs.

On the Cincinnati Edition pet show, we’ll talk about what it takes to have a well-trained pooch. We’ll also discuss whether treating our pets like people is more harmful than helpful and how to cope with the loss of a furry companion.
