I just had a flashback today. When I was 13 and my little brother was 7, we were about to get our very first puppy. I spent ALL my time doing research on dogs. The best food, the best breed, the best grooming methods, the healthiest treats, the best vet.... I would give my family hour-long lectures on why you should not EVER punish a puppy in any way, shape, or form because it only confuses him, and to only reinforce the good. Apparently my little brother had been hearing too much "dog" because he came to me one day and asked me " Ashley, how do you train a baby how to 'speak'?". I don't know why that came back to me right now, I just thought it was funny.
