On a side note, I find it's actually more useful to have Topo dislike you and don't train your pet for Negotiations: They provide two starting Arguments for your opponent, so if you have some dominance/argument related grafts, you can basically Dominance->Evil Eye->Overbear for like 20-30+ damage on turn 1 for just 2 Actions.

On the other hand if you train your pet, you can Elucidate and Bolster for like 20 damage a turn. Good times.
