Adults have a tendency, which I think is a learned tendency, to either not question and therefore not understand or to just not listen to the explanations of why. Children, like dogs, see the end product and just want to know how to get there. Childern can dream and wish and hope and work toward those goals. Adults have lost it somewhere and get bogged down in "it can't be done".
Dog training and behavior is simple. And it is easy as well. If a child can do it, anyone can. If a child can do it, why is there any need for painful techniques and tools or intimidation to teach a dog our rules and the behaviors that make living with humans less stressful.
