The TWiKi Pledge to My Dog

I will never raise my hand in anger to you

I will never resort to physical force unless there is a safety issue

I will always work to find the point of cooperation, not coercion

I will strive to take the extra few minutes necessary to do it right

When I fail you, I will apologize and pledge to do better next time

Whenever possible, I will bear witness that kindness is not only the right way but the better, more effective way to successfully teach dogs how to exist in our crazy human world
