What’s the best dog toy? That depends on the age. For a puppy, a Kong is great.

What mistake do you see owners commonly make? I don’t like to see dogs getting actual bones. It’s hard on their digestive system and can damage their teeth.

Advice for new owners? Dogs need training! Take a class.

What’s the most important cue or command to teach your dog? Off is a good one, especially if it’s used to keep them from eating things they shouldn’t.
