"Donít pay too much attention to breed characteristic summaries. When applied to individual dogs they are about as useful as a horoscope. |
"Training depends entirely upon consistency. Just about anything can be trained, from a dog to a tropical fish to a flatworm. Itís mostly a matter of finding what drives the dog, and then rewarding behavior you like through that drive, and ignoring behavior you donít like."

I will take it one step further. If you start early enough, you can make the dog addicted to you, and use that to shape and control the dog's mind. You teach the pup what it means to be a dog. If you have 100% control over the pup's environment, you have 100% control over what he learns.|
