Interesting article...
The Collared Scholar wrote:If you want your dog to focus and commit, you have to focus and commit too. Because you can’t expect your dog to give you things you aren’t willing to give him in return.

Just read the article. I think there is good value in what she says about being focused. I am guilty of having my phone with me. Going to stay better focused on Rogue during our play and training time.
