Building Trust With Your Dog

  How do you bond and build trust with your dog? Do you work at building trust with your dog? Are you doing it without even knowing? What are the ways we can build trust and bond with our dog? Spending positive time together builds trust and creates a bond like no other.  Going for walks, hikes, runs can be a wonderful bonding experience. Not training related, just out for enjoyment save the training for another time. Hanging out watching television, listening to music or reading a book/magazine Giving belly rubs, rubbing their head, massaging their paws, or simply resting your hand on your pet promotes bonding and trust building.
