Wouldn't you love a perfectly trained dog? I thought so too. Then I did a little reading about "perfect" dogs. The ones who are instantly compliant and never do anything unexpected. My dogs aren't machines provided for my amusement and required to immediately attend to my every command. My dogs are, well, imperfect dogs. Dogs who sometimes do the things dogs do even when I want them to do what I want. And that kind of intelligent imperfection seems to be perfect for me and my dogs.
