patience is the key to rehabilitation.
He has found that one of the most important traits you can have as a canine professional is patience. He believes that you have to work with the dog over and over until he gets it. Sometimes a behavior change can be quick, but even then, it requires follow-through. He warns that you cannot revert back to your old behavior, or the dog will, too!
Remember, Cesar insists, rehabilitation is a process – not a quick fix. You need to send a clear and consistent message 24/7 and 365 days a year. The behavior change will not necessarily happen overnight. You have to celebrate the progress along the way and know that success is in the dog's future!
In our multi-tasking, instant access world, many of us have little patience. If this is true of you, look at it like this: your dog is giving you an opportunity to work on your development as a human being! Take the skills you are learning with him and apply it to other areas in your life. Be patient with your friends, family members, co-workers, and even complete strangers. You may find yourself a happier person for it.
