Appropriate play with your dog has to be a must in developing mutual trust

 'It is continually proven that there are more benefits when shaping dog behaviour that this is achieved by the addition of structured play activities -  therefore all training and behaviour rehabilitation exercises should include an element of play and fun based interaction' - Dean Hart MSc MCFBA
