I had an epic fail. At least my dog thought so. And in this case, it is her opinion that matters. She loves her treat time and I thought it would be fun to try something new. Did I get it wrong! She either picked the new treats out of her food bowl and spit them out on the floor, or ate everything in the bowl except the new treats depending on her mood.
Moving ahead and making progress requires trying new things. But here’s the thing: it won’t always work. And knowing why the failure happened will provide valuable information to know what to do next. Knowing what not to do is just as valuable as knowing what to do.
