Importance of Training

I recently visited Diana Ross, sometimes referred to as the Hill Country Dog Whisperer, of D&D K9 Concepts in Kerrville. We talked about the importance of training your dogs.

Diana has been training animals for many years and has trained police dogs and even worked for a circus. She has appeared on ESPN,  USA Network,  and has performed around the country. I recently visited her at her headquarters in Kerrville.

It only takes a few minutes a day and anyone can train their pet Diana adds. She says finding what motivates your dog could as much as triple the speed at which you will have success. For some its food and for others it could be toys . If you would like more information about Diana and her training techniques, you can find her by going to their website. She says the best way to reach her is by phone.
