Slow and Steady
Updated: Nov 21, 2020
Throughout our many years of experience helping dogs and their pet parents develop better relationships, one question has been frequently asked, “How fast will this work?” While there is never a clear up front answer to that question, due to so many intervening factors, there is one simple truth that has always proven true; slow and steady wins the race. Think of the old Aesop’s Fable the “Tortoise and the Hare” where the tortoise won a foot race with a rabbit simply by being consistent and persistent. The very same thing applies to dog training. If you try to rush things or take short-cuts, you will invariably have missteps and setbacks that will tear away any progress you have made. These setbacks will cost you a lot of time just to get back to the point you were at previously. Not only does that take longer, but it adds unnecessary frustration to both you and your dog. Who wants that? If you follow the training protocols and have patience, you will get to where you want to be. Rest assured that we are here to coach, guide, and support you along the way, and keep you at pace to succeed. Going slower gets you to the finish line faster, just like the tortoise.
