“My dog knows how to “sit” and he is already housebroken, why does he need more training?”
Many people might have the idea that if their dog goes to bathroom outside the house and knows a few tricks, training is not that necessary. But the fact is, training has more benefit then just fun and games. Training is about how you and your dog communicate, and with proper socialization, you are giving your dog a good start to a happy and healthy life.
Some of the benefits of dog training:
•Puppy classes provide opportunity for getting your new family member started off right. Group classes provide the experiences and opportunities for your puppies to develop interaction skills other puppies, with people and in new environments.
•Training classes provide dog parents the skills and knowledge for dealing with common, normal dog behaviors. Like housetraining and chewing.
•No matter what age you start training your dog, foundation training provides the basis for any activity, and behavior or job you want your dog to do.
•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 is a fully participating member of the family, if your dog is well behave, you will want to take him anywhere, right?
•Training has been shown to be the single most important thing that keeps a dog in his or her “forever” home. Here are few other reasons that I’ve heard of: house training problems, veterinary cost, barking, hyperactivity and aggression. Other then veterinary cost is monetary issue, the rest of them are all behavior issues that can be prevent/ eliminate by proper training.
•Training builds your mutual bond, enhances the partnership and enriches the relationship you share with your dog, is there anything better?
•And training is fun, for both you and your dog!
