An Animal Planet star made her way to San Diego County's animal shelter to show dogs a few new tricks Monday morning.
Victoria Stillwell is best known for her role as the star of Animal Planet's television series "It's Me or the Dog.” She said one of the most important things in training a dog is to encourage it to be more confident when living with people.
“So many behavior problems are because a dog just doesn't know how to cope...hasn't been taught how to live by our rules,” she said.
This morning, she used shelter dogs mixed with a little bit of positive attitude to show how simple it is to teach animals good behavior. Stillwell strongly encourages dog owners to train their dogs using positive reinforcement rather than punishing them when they do something wrong.
