Well, one of the most helpful bits of advice I've ever gotten, in regards to Meg, was from this board. I can't remember if it was Doc, DoberLuv, or Sammy, all of whom were enormously helpful when dealing with Meg's fear issues, but someone basically said "reward confidence". I took it to heart and used that in so many situations, looking for any sign of decreased stress and increased confidence, and it did wonders for transforming her.

Always make sure they are having 50 percent of the fun
Always enforce a command that you give
Always leave them wanting more

Read your dog, you have all the time in the world before you send them. This was at field trials.
This advice my old boss gave me helped in just about everything from how I made my decisions to how I raised my children.

They are dogs, not people. They think like dogs, not people. They act like dogs, not people.

1.) Don't freak out over fear periods in puppies.
2.) Buy Control Unleashed (LOL)
3.) General tips on grooming from our very experience groomer at work. She's awesome! And has me wanting some kinda coated dog.

This is one of my favourites

Crates can be your friend. I seriously would probably have murdered Aura if it wasn't for crates. She's not the dog you just walk away from when you're frustrated. She will rip apart a room just for the fun of it and not even think about it. Crates and a secure yard to put her in has saved (what's left of) my sanity.

Don't expect perfection. No one is perfect. This is especially true of my relationship with Fudge. He is so good at everything that occasionally I forget that he isn't perfect and put too much pressure on him.

My dad's had to tell me that about 400 times.

Also, "She will grow out of this."
