You don't adore everyone you meet right off the bat. Sometimes dogs needs to learn to trust and appreciate each other over time. But often the best way to get to know each other is when we work together.
Engaging the dogs in drills and games with you can help them take the pressure off each other and focus on you - which has its own set of benefits. Then they can feel united as they walk together, play ball (with rules) together, do drills together. Kind of like joining a team!!
