The rule to follow is Do as little breaking as possible; try to encourage the dog to do the proper things and develop him as much as possible with the least amount of control. As final word to the breaker, it may be said that he should so educate himself that he will know that it is always wise, when in doubt, to give the dog the benefit of the doubt. Not only should he know this, but also he must have such complete control of his feelings as to give his knowledge effect. The breaker who spends much time in considering his own weaknesses will profit by this effort (Lindsay, 2000, pg. 305).
