Dogs by nature are social animals having a pack mentality.
Show your canine that you are committed for the relationship and provides them all the love you can from the very beginning. As with any training for your puppy, patience is one of many keys, it will require time, but is worth the striving.
I have 2 dogs and one cat and a girl friend.
In this photo are Hera (to the left) and Brutus (to the right) when he was young.
In this photo is just Brutus who was curious to smell the camera.
And in this photo is my girlfriend sleeping with Brutus.
