Many of the people that I ride with do not approve of the way I am training Zum. They think I should force him to do what I want. They want me to show Zum that I am the boss of him. They openly criticize me for not being tough with Zum. I am training Zum with patience, praise and positive reinforcement. I do what I do not to be liked or to be approved of by other people, not to please others, not to gain power over another, not to catch interest or love. I do what I do because what I do is true to me. I may have to say no to people who try to push me around when it would be easier to say yes. Zum and I are both personalities with significance!
