Why is training a good investment?
Proper training is key to a happy and safe relationship with your dog, setting the foundation to ensure your dog stays physically fit, mentally alert, socially engaged and emotionally happy. Your dog is a member of the family and you want your relationship to be mutually enjoyable.
Dog training based on positive reinforcement helps pet parents understand how dogs think, learn and communicate. In turn, you will understand how to encourage and reward appropriate and well-mannered dog behaviors for all situations. This builds and nurtures the bond between you and your dog.
Families have the best relationships with their dogs if they help their dog understand their role in the household. The most efficient and effective way to do this is with formal training. Dogs feel safest, most confident and are well-behaved knowing their pet parents are making the decisions and setting boundaries.
As you work with your trainer and your dog, your dog will learn to repeat the behaviors that you reinforce. It is important that every family member has agreed on which behaviors are acceptable and preferred, how to consistently reinforce these behaviors and what to do in case a less favorable behavior is observed.
Training time can be playtime. Talk, laugh and have fun while your dog learns “sit,” “down” and other basic behaviors. Be exuberant with plenty of praise, so they know they got it right!
