Our dog, Charlie, is a fantastic, loving, and smart dog. He is a beautiful creature with lots of personality and energy. He is very outgoing and loves to play. At times, Charlie will be completely unresponsive while he is in the middle of doing something. This is when you can either help him with the chore, or calm him down a little, letting him know that you are there for him.

When Charlie is at his most active, it’s normal for him to be running away from you. But as he gets more used to you, he will usually stop and come closer. This is because dogs have a sense of “safety” and if you keep Charlie close, he will start to calm down, stop running, and sniff you to make sure you are in fact there. This is a good way to keep him safe and you are helping him.

Another good way to keep Charlie safe is to teach him the word “no.” He will usually look up at you without a word for a few seconds, and then look back at you with a blank stare. Saying “no” is an important task, because dogs don’t really comprehend what they are saying until they are asked to do something they are not supposed to do.
