In this free video, Brian Agnew compares two different mindsets that can be taken when working with dogs who display behavior problems. One approach focuses on "breaking the dog down", and the other on "breaking things down for the dog."
Understanding how to break things down for your dog will allow you to show your dog how to make good decisions, rather than simply punishing them for their mistakes.
