There are different (and often cute) names for dog training camp: puppy kindergarten, obedience school, and our own Manners Daycare and Canine Training Camp. Regardless of what it’s called, training your dog has benefits—for both the dog and the owner.
Training should start as soon as possible when someone gets their dog. This helps the dog and owner learn how to work well together and bond with each other.
A well-trained dog has the freedom to go just about anywhere. A dog may be allowed inside more stores or businesses and also won’t have to be hidden away when company comes to visit. A well-trained dog knows that you are the leader and will listen and behave better.
Obedience training is good for both the dog and you. Training can promote the following:
- Stress Relief
- Improve your mood (and the dog’s mood)
- Higher quality of life together
- Build a better bond with each other
Many people consider dogs to be part of their families. Just as children are taught about life and how to navigate through it through the use of rules, dogs too can be taught. It will make for happier and less chaos all around, for both the dog and the people who love it.
