“Everybody is doing their best all the time.”

Human behaviour, like dog behaviour is shaped by a whole heap of things.

The environment MATTERS.

The environment includes

*who is around you (animals/ people)

*what is going on around you (ground and weather conditions, activities, distractions etc)

*when – time of day/ night, time of year, time of life, before, during, or after events which uplift or worry you etc.

*where – public/ private, enclosed/ spacious, inside/ outside, rules and expectations in certain places etc.

*how - are skills, tools and resources available to support you?

An interesting, supportive environment shapes positive attitudes, effort and learning. Strive to provide that environment for people and for animals.
