A Sneak Peek Into The STSK9 PhilosophySep 22, 2023
You might be wondering, "What's the deal with the MVP?" Well, let me tell you, it's all about sharing every step of the journey without holding anything back. I've always disliked it when people try to teach something but don't reveal the whole picture, maybe because they're in competition or want to keep their secrets to themselves. Personally, I'm all about transparency. If you're going to charge for your knowledge, you should give it all.
With the MVP, I'm going all in – from the moment you decide to bring that puppy into your life. I'll guide you through talking to the breeder, what to look for, what questions to ask, and even how to gauge their response. Trust me; I've met my fair share of breeders who are skeptical when someone with zero experience walks in wanting to test them.
And when that puppy finally comes home, I'll help you decide where to set up their space – indoors or outdoors, crate or no crate. We'll cover it all, from A to Z, so you can run the show and become the expert you've always wanted to be.
So, what exactly is the MVP? It's your very own talent management program for you and your dog. We'll focus on five key pillars for handlers and for dogs. Master them, and you'll be in a league of your own. But here's the catch: you can never truly control a living being, especially if you respect their natural instincts.
That's why I advocate for positive training methods – the respect you gain from not intruding on your dog's physical integrity is incredibly rewarding. However, I understand that some prefer a balanced approach, using tools responsibly. The goal is to build trust and confidence, so your dog doesn't shy away or lose faith in you.
Now, let's talk about the handler's skill – a crucial aspect, especially if you've had dogs for a while. We all know that, unfortunately, dogs age faster than we do, and someday we may have to say goodbye. But the skills you've honed through training remain with you, ready to be applied when you decide to bring another dog into your life. It's tough, I know, to replace that one special dog, but if you truly love dogs and dog training, you'll find a way. And the beauty of mastering these skills is that you can multiply the love and joy they bring into your life.
The real beauty of experience isn't just becoming skilled at something; it's realizing what's possible because you've done it before. Your belief and strength grow when you've achieved results. You no longer need to guess; you can recreate your success again and again. So, go ahead and embrace the journey – the MVP Program is here to guide you every step of the way.
