If you are good at working with another animal, teaching new skills, building complex behaviors, bringing words to fluent understanding, and doing so incrementally, for an onlooker it should be about as interesting as stirring oatmeal.
Training should not be sensational. Training should not be about heightened emotions. Training should not be about entertaining onlookers. Training should not be about tricking an animal. Training should not be about the human end looking more important than the animal end of the leash.
Training is teaching. Teaching is about building cooperation, willingness, and curiosity. Teaching is building life long skills that will help the human and animal Team be successful in life together.
If you are training and teaching correctly you are doing lots and lots and lots, and lots more repetitions and patterning of behaviors. Micro steps, and even micro-ier and minuscule steps, to help with understanding and learning.
And if you are teaching and training correctly you know that there will be productive days and not so productive days, and some just down right crap days. And you accept that as part of life and learning.
So just like oatmeal, it may not be super interesting to look at, definitely not the sexiest food in your pantry, not a great color, and not too exciting to stir around, but in the long run, maybe a super great option for your life long health. Training and teaching correctly is no different.
It is knowing, being awake to the connection, being intentional in the process, and the time spent together. The results are your relationship in motion together.
