Many times what we see on TV is what we want. This is exactly why many people choose a certain breed of dog.
Those well trained dogs on popular TV shows make us believe we will have that dog someday. The truth is to have a dog like that you will need to put a lot of work and training into your dog.
It is not an unobtainable goal but you should start with a realist view on what you have time to train your new pup to do. Now let’s sit back and reminisce about the famous dogs through history.
Lassie– This well trained collie is known for helping little Timmy stay out of trouble and was always a whistle away.
Snoopy– From the land who adults don’t really have a voice, this lovable cartoon character is a huge hit with the Peanuts crew.
