10 EH&S Software training tips... or teaching old dogs new tricks
Last October, my family adopted a puppy that had been rescued from a shelter. She’d had a difficult early life and lacked basic obedience skills, so once she became healthy, we enrolled her in a puppy obedience class. We anxiously attended orientation, completed our reading assignments, pledged to follow the trainer’s instructions, and bought (a garageful of) training supplies before even taking the puppy to her first class. Little did we know that most of the training would be directed toward us and not the dog! Before we could expect her to know what to do, we had to learn the commands ourselves.
