„Failure is not the opposite to success, but the stepping stone to success.“

- Arianna Huffington

Hello and welcome!

Are there days when you are absolutely not in the mood to listen to these sounds? Allow ourself to relax on such days. It is only natural that there are days when these sounds are not heard. It is like that in reality. So skipping a day once in a while only increases the naturalness! Don‘t press yourself so that you feel heavy inside. You are supposed to eliminate a problem for your dog. Not to create a new one. Keep yourself happy during this process!
