Obedience is defined as compliance with the wishes of another; an acknowledgement of authority.
What a grand idea. I would like to be the authority and would be most pleased to have “Gracie,” canine member of my family, to be compliant.
How would I achieve such status? Take one Miss Gracie, the growing floor-peeing Bernese wonder dog, to obedience classes, where she undoubtedly will learn compliance and acknowledge my authority as alpha dog.
