Have you ever worried that sleeping with your dog or sharing some cuddle time with your puppy is against all the training rules?
Are you one of the multitudes taught to believe that inviting your otherwise adoring, sweet, innocent dog or puppy onto your lap will turn him into Kujo?
Do you have a family member, convinced by some celebrity trainer, who fills you with guilt each time you pat the bed sheets or lift your baby up for a snuggle?
Do. This. Now! Call your dog or puppy over, lift him gently onto your lap (offering him a bone if he’s nippy) and take three deep breaths. Now repeat after me: It’s ok to be loving, it’s ok to be loving, it’s ok to be loving.
