As far as training the dog goes.... you are his master and superior and he wants to please you. You can see how excited he gets when he pleases you..... who is YOUR MASTER AND SUPERIOR?
Is that why he tried to destroy my furniture? Because he wanted to please me? You ignore my point and turn it in to a god allegory.
My kid doesn't do good things because she's inherently good... she does them because I taught her that those were the right things to do. Those values were bestowed upon her by me... Just as they were passed down to me from my parents.
Morals and values are learned... this conversation is evidence enough to that.
