Daring Greatly and Failure

Today I am thinking about daring greatly.  If you take great leaps of faith and try new things and give it your all, you are not always rewarded.  In fact, sometimes life punishes you pretty hard for having dared greatly.  Some of us will persevere and go on to dare greatly again.  Others will make a point not to make such a big mistake again and reel things in.

What about our dogs?

I want my dogs to have the confidence to dare greatly.  I want them to know the difference between a correct and incorrect response, but I don’t want them to fear an incorrect response so much that they will not dare greatly.  I want my dogs to be running fast and joyful and willing to risk a mistake.
