Have fun and get the help of a professional trainer if you get stuck. 

Our ASK THE DOG TRAINER Column can be reached For more information on Terry Lynn Cuyler and her training, you may find her at Paws Prof. A personal appointment with a trainer will likely provide more specific information on your dog's issues and your questions.
