INVESTING IN YOUR FUTURE
If you've recently purchased a puppy or you're thinking of getting a dog, then you probably want a dog who is well mannered and a joy to take anywhere. The time you put into training your dog will largely determine how obedient your dog will be in the long run.
Investing in dog training is one of the wisest decisions you can make with a great payback. While training your dog costs anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds, the money you spend making your new dog a valuable part of your family is well worth the cost. These are just a few reasons why dog training is a worthwhile investment.
Training Makes Your Dog Happier
Dogs that are trained and given boundaries are happier and more confident than dogs that are allowed to do whatever they wish. Just like children your young dog is like a sponge and will soak up all those skills you teach it. Since a dog naturally craves to be given a job or role in their community, training your dog to obey basic commands fulfills that inherent need in your dog.
Training Creates a Better Relationship
The main reason that dogs end up in rescue centre's is a lack of obedience. Owners simply get tired of cleaning up shredded rubbish or chasing their runaway dog around the park. An untrained dog can put a strain on a family unit, even if they are relatively well behaved and enjoyable.
Dogs don't act out to be bad. Dogs do things because they haven’t been taught not to or because they are anxious, bored, frustrated, or lonely. Obedience training helps you and your dog communicate in a way that will build a positive bond your whole family can enjoy.
Training Makes Owning a Dog Easier
Training your dog isn't just for your dog, training is for you as well. You will learn how to manage certain situations, create a stimulating environment and meet new friends. You may enjoy training your dog so much that you diversify in to other dog activities such as hoopers, scent, agility, there are so many things you can do to have a great time with your dog.
Training Your Dog Improves Canine Safety
A well-behaved dog will be easier to control in an excitable or emergency situation. Commands like wait or leave it are essential to a dog's well-being. These commands are taught in obedience classes. When your dog can be halted in an instant with a quick command, you can potentially save your dog (or someone else) from danger.
Having children in the home increases the need for dog obedience. When dogs are puppies, they will chew, scratch, and jump on children in an attempt to play. Some dogs never outgrow this behaviour. Dog training classes at a young age help puppies grow into family-friendly adults.
Your new canine friend will benefit from obedience training in many ways and so will you. The sooner you get your dog into training classes, the better their overall success will be.
