Paying the cost to be the boss

... or as I like to call it, "My adventures with a strong willed dog."

It's a good reminder for anyone who has a dog that think's he's the boss, that consistency is both you and your dog's best friend.

A dog that's been around the block a time or two, like our friend to the right, likes things just a particular way, and when I change things up, he tries to restore order in his way.

I find on those days when I'm lax in making sure that he's heeling and in general walking with or behind me, he'll get a little ornery the rest of the day when he doesn't get his way. He's not angry, he's just a bit of a talker, and in the picture above, he's letting me know that I better get in gear.
