How to Catch a Dog
(or Anything Else You Want)
By Jeannette Maw
Have you heard the colloquialism that a chased dog will always run?
Owners of naughty or adventurous dogs have likely experienced the truth of
But it’s not just true for dogs. Chasing anything will send it
running in the opposite direction!
That “graspy” chasing desperate-type energy is not a super attractive

leader of the pack doesn’t wonder about that. I have to run with confidence that
