Whether you have just brought home a new dog or your family has been raising a young dog for a while, now is the perfect time to investigate dog training and whether or not it is right for your puppy. At Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic, we encourage puppy owners to train their dog. Dog training can improve your relationship with your pet and can help your pet live a longer, happier life.
There are many reasons to begin dog training:
Training brings you and your pet closer together - Once your puppy knows and understands your expectations, you and your puppy should enjoy a closer, more productive relationship.
Training can help keep your pet safe - Training will teach your pet to listen for commands and follow instructions. This can prevent your pet from doing something dangerous, like running out into the street.
A properly trained dog may be less destructive - If your dog is not properly trained, he or she may act out in destructive ways. Training your pet will teach him or her not to chew on your carpeting, furniture and other pieces of property.
Training your dog can help keep family members and visitors safe - Pet obedience training will teach your dog restraint, which can prevent bites and other events from occurring.
If you are not convinced that pet obedience training is right for your dog, it may be time to observe a pet obedience class in your area. Go to a class and observe the training methods used on pets. Watch the pets in the class. Do they seem happy? Are they calm and under control? Watching training in action can help you decide whether or not pet behavioral training is right for your dog.
