Communicate your love with touch.
Gentle strokes and playful petting are positive motivational techniques for instilling good behavior.
Always say NO clearly, so there's no mistaking what you mean. In time, you should be able to communicate your inner thoughts with a simple look.
Never wait to act on punishment. To communicate effectively, you must punish directly after the misbehavior; i.e., immediately rub his nose in the mess he's made. No doubt about it. Next time he'll think twice before giving you shit.
