    They do indeed each have their own pace. Take your time, and remember FF should not be a matter of simply forcing a dog to comply. It's pressure conditioning. Conditioning takes time. Also remember...

    How can it surprise you not to understand what you never watched? I can help, but not if you don't do your part. No one can do that. You inquired, but conducted only a superficial conversation. Want...
