What mistake do you see owners commonly make? Using their heart, rather than their head to choose a dog. The decision needs to be based on a lot more than just looks.

Advice for new owners? Getting a dog is a long-term commitment, so think about the characteristics you want in your dog so that you’ll end up with the right fit.

What’s the most important cue or command to teach your dog? The most important thing is the way you teach your dog, always with respect and patience.
