As humans we may think that life skills are knowing how to  boiling an egg, use a cash machine or work the washing machine. For a puppy, life skills are the education your puppy needs to be able to make the right choices in every day life. These skills will allow you to enjoy your puppy more as you direct less and he/she takes more control of his own behaviour.
