(P)Up your game!
I have always believed that owning a dog is an adventurous and exciting experience we, humans, are able to have. If you can learn to see the world the way your puppy does, I am convinced that this is where your Team starts.
I was never about simply giving you rules of what and what no to do. I want you to understand why your puppy acts in a certain way, so maybe the next time you find yourself in a similar situation you can crack the case yourself!
