Dog Obedience Training - Is It Important?

Dog Obedience Training - Is It Important?


Dog Obedience Training - Is It Important?

by Carl Covason

You have just brought home your new little puppy. Dog obedience training is the furthest thing from your mind. Of course you realize that you will have to house train him but that is not a biggie.

You can clearly see how your life will be know that you have a wonderful dog. In your mind you see you and your pet running free at the park and playing. He will always stay by your side eliminating the need for a leash and he will go with you everywhere that you go.

Maybe he will be your son or daughter's best friend. They will spend the summers running together and getting into mischief the way a kid and their dog are supposed to. Life is going to be great!

Then reality sets in.

Your well mannered dog refuses to go to the bathroom outside and thinks your couch is the best place to sleep. He snubs his nose at his food and instead forges the counter to find a meal fit for a king. Your carpet is a digging zone.

Forget the fact that your dog has a zillion chew toys and bones laying around the house, the sides of your recliner are so much better to chew on. He is constantly barking out of the windows and all of your hopes and dreams having a well mannered dog have vanished.

So what in the world do you do know?

Well even if you wanted to you can not just get rid of your monstrous dog because when he get in trouble he gets the biggest saddest eyes that he stares up at you with. He really loves you and you are really fond of him too.

If only he would behave.

Well the answer my friend is dog training and not just taking your dog to a dog training class a handful of times. Dogs need constant training to get well behaved but it is not as hard to do as you might think. Dogs want to please and because of that when you finally figure out how to communicate with your dog and he understands what it is that you expect from him he will go out of his way to make you happy.
