Obedience training is one of the most important aspects of raising a dog. Training opens a line of communication between you and your dog. A well-behaved, obedience traineddog is a pleasure to own because he/she can go virtually anywhere without being a risk or nuisance to others. Training provides dogs with the basic good manners we all want from polite greeting when guests arrive, to walking nicely on the leash, to coming when called.
A trained dog joins in the fun when company comes, accompanies the family to the kids’ sports games, goes with you to visit friends and relatives, goes for hikes, swims, and everything else the family does together. Training has been shown to be the single most important thing that keeps a dog in his or her “forever” home. Training builds your mutual bond, enhances the partnership and enriches the relationship you share with your dog. Is there anything better?
Benefits of Puppy Training:
Puppy classes provide the opportunity to get your new family member started off right. Puppy classes provide the experiences and opportunities for your puppy to develop interaction skills with other puppies, with people, and in new environments.
Puppy socialization has been found to be critical to the psychological health of adult dogs. Puppy classes provide the opportunity for this important facet of your puppy’s upbringing.
Training classes provide dog owners the skills and knowledge for dealing with common, normal dog behaviors—starting with puppy behaviors such as housetraining and chewing.
No matter what age you start training your dog, foundation training provides the basis for any activity, behavior or job you want your dog to do.
