If you are not sure where to start with this here are some things to know about creating resolutions for your dog. .


How Many Resolutions to Choose

This really depends on how committed you are and what your dog’s capabilities are. If you have a stubborn dog, such as a shiba inu, that will resist the things you throw at them then you may want to go easy on the resolutions. The number of resolutions is not as important as how good they are and how committed you are to getting to them.
