Pooches: All My Lovin' (aka How much love is too much love?!)
Maggie and Nigel have been back on track with Brandon Fouche's methods for a few weeks now. Basically, this includes a strict "no free lovin'" rule as well as not talking to the dogs and refraining from using their names as much as possible. It sounds pretty simple, and it is. But simple is not always easy.
"Don't you want to snuggle with me!?!?"
"You give me pets??"
We love to give lovin' to the pooches. We like smooching them and cuddling with them. However, we have found that when we don't just give out cuddles all the time, the doggies are better behaved. They listen more and come when called more often. We started thinking though...how much love is TOO much love?! Is there such a thing? Why do we give love to the pups, because they want it or because WE want to give it?!
What is your cuddle policy? Do you rain down the love or use a Nothing in Life is Free method?
