Tell us what tea you are drinking (and if you like it). And then tell us what book are you reading (and if you like it). Finally, tell us if they go together.
Since obedience school is so expensive, and we have heard endless amounts of positive things about the author, Jake and I picked up Family Friendly Dog Training by Patricia B. McConnell. It's a very interesting and effective read, and Zoey has already started making progress. The book goes beyond just saying "this is how you teach 'sit'," and explains animal behavior. I think it's a lot easier to properly train her if I understand why things need to be taught a certain way. Though we still have to work on "no peeing on Heather's floor," I think this book will definitely help shape her into a more obedient dog.
As for the pairing, I'd say heck yea. It's not easy to be patient with a puppy during training, but a relaxing cup of tea certainly makes it a little better.
