I like the rhyme in the title of this post. Here is an interesting article about dog training techniques. I liked this quote from the comments:

I do remember being struck when in Scotland at the Int’l Sheep Dog how quiet and kind the handlers were. One dog messed up horribly, lost the blue ribbon because he took the wrong flank, and his handler just stroked his ears and said “Oh my, we all make mistakes, don’t we?”
