He fondly called it the Ron and Bon kiss. In fact he would do that in front of the other kids in the neighborhood and be applauded for his little training. This was just the beginning.
Later when Pravin had his own pets, the need of training occurred again with Polo. Polo is a fun loving dog that is full of abundant energy. The problem occurred when he wanted to take him for long walks with him. He would pull with all his might and Pravin would be dragging himself behind Polo most of the times. He hired a professional trainer to correct the behavior but to his misery Polo did not learn how to walk. The only thing that he learned was to shake hands. Ironically Polo started being scared of this trainer. He hired another one and decided that he would be an integral part of the training this time and to his surprise this trainer stopped coming to his home after a few days. It was time then he decided that he would train Polo himself. He got some books and watched some You Tube videos to train himself to further train Polo to walk Read Article On - Tips for Training Adult Dogs
